The name Flora & Pomona comes from two goddesses in roman mythology: Flora, the goddess of flowers, and Pomona, the goddess of fruitful abundance. I chose this name after thinking about what inspires me the most, all the wonderful natural ingredients I work with: oils and butters from fruits and nuts, flowers and herbs, resins and hydrosols, and clays from the earth. From the beginning I have enjoyed doing and making as much as I can by myself, from formulating my own recipes, making herbal infusions and macerations, making molds and stamps, taking pictures and creating labels. Sourcing quality ingredients is very important to me. I take my time looking for ethically sourced ingredients, organic ingredients, local ingredients, and to support Canadian and Quebecois suppliers first. I also make an effort to keep my production plastic free, not only when I wrap my soaps but also when I make them. All my soaps and products are all small batch, handmade with thought, care and passion.
