I am a Nova Scotian living in Alberta, and the proud owner/founder of Wild Willow Eco!
Born and raised in the Annapolis Valley, I really know the value of anything homemade, home raised, or home grown, and the importance of supporting local and small businesses.
My six year old son and I were lucky to travel back to Nova Scotia this summer and enjoy the company of our friends and family and breathe in that fresh ocean air that we used to take for granted.
Before leaving, I was sure to gather all of my favorite Nova Scotian things to bring back with me. These included candles, chocolate, wine & spirits, honey, maple syrup and soaps; all of the things that bring me comfort and have the ability to take the edge off of being homesick.
As I unpacked and savoured these products, I came up with the idea of creating comfort boxes for my fellow Nova Scotians living away from home.
With all the travel restrictions, there are plenty of people who won't make it home to be with family and friends. My hope is they will find some comfort through some of the familiar products I've combined from amazing businesses across N.S.
With love and warmth from a fellow Nova Scotian,
