Nature’s Pharmacy: BC’s Best Herbal Boutiques

Delve into the healing power of mother nature at BC's herbal boutiques. From traditional plant-based remedies to modern herbal supplements, tinctures and elixirs, discover nature’s pharmacy and wellness products that promote holistic health and vitality.


Tilia Botanicals

Tilia Botanicals in Creston has a fun, immersive Blending Bar that allow customers to start with unscented, eco-friendly liquid soap, shampoo, bath and massage oil and then custom blend with a variety of essential oils to create your own products. Tilla will also keep your secret ‘recipe’ on file for future visits too. The line of men’s products, cleaning supplies, pet care and more is impressive as well.



Finlandia Pharmacy & Natural Health Centre is Vancouver’s quintessential wellness retail boutique, founded in 1974 by pharmacist Harlan Lahti who believed bridging western and alternative medicine was the future of healthcare. Today the spirit of his vision continues, with store staff consisting of expert health pros that can offer solid advice on treatment suggestions, a huge depth of supplement brands, homeopathic remedies and so much more.


Okanagan Lavender & Herb Farm

Okanagan Lavender & Herb Farm  grow and distill aromatic plants on their family farm focused on biodiversity and sustainability. Lavender products are available sure, but the range also includes a rose range with its healing properties, plenty of other herbs plus therapeutic bath salts, foot soaks, and herbal teas. Don’t forget to pick up edible cake flowers and rose petal dust for your non-alcoholic cocktails made at home.


Kelly’s Health Shop

Kelly’s Health Shop is Powell River’s go-to boutique for all-things-wellness. Gut health issues? Try supplements from Natural Factors, and superfood blends from Pacha Powder Organics. Indigenous wellness brand Standing Spruce is a line of apothecary products offering healing salves, toxin reducing salt scrubs and more.


Saje Natural Wellness

Saje Natural Wellness was founded in Vancouver back in 1992 and what started as an essential oil brand has expanded into a full-blown natural pharmacy with a deep inventory to address any ailment. The Peppermint Halo roll-on oil has a cult following for treating headaches, and healing kits have been created as alternatives to the usual drug store remedies. Insomniac? Try the Sleep Well. Travel much? Pocket Farmacy is wise to throw in your bag. Diffusers are big here, with a variety of styles to you’re your space. Saje retail locations are throughout BC.


Healing Hollow

Healing Hollow Essential Oil Co. in Kimberley carries a wide variety of products, but I’m super impressed with the Immune Support line including roll-on natural medicines, hand sanitizers and other somewhat germaphobe (like me) health essentials.


eco & luxe

eco & luxe co. based in Chilliwack, focuses on independent female-owned brands that are socially conscious and earth friendly. Winged Women’s Wellness gummies, Tanitabs toothpaste tablets that eliminate packaging waste, natural deodorants and more are available.


Healing House Natural Wellness

Healing House Natural Wellness is owned and run by Petra Sovcov, Doctorate of Natural Medicine (DNM), and Clinical Herbal Therapist (CHT). Located in New Westminster, the business offers herbal and natural medicines, nutrition advice and information on how to heal, naturally.
