I went on a beautiful Sunday because I could (they are open Sundays!) I was in search of a locally made or organic lip scrub. They do offer one but that is not what I can home with, help me. Instead I choose a coffee argan face/body scrub from leaves of trees, it smelled too good. As for using it as a lip scrub...it is oil based so it melts on your fingers and lips not the best option but I am making it work. It is lovely used on the face.
I adore mint green tea blends and had yet to try the offerings from teamate a Winnipeg based tea shop and blender. Some teas feature locally grown in Manitoba ingredients, my mint green is one of them! The blend itself is a lot more green than mint. The mint is very subtle but overall it is a very nice blend.
Public general store had a really nice assortment of local and Canadian products. I do hope to go back and maybe pick up the lip scrub I left behind.
