Digging Deep With Sonia from Woodlot

As a lead up to our Social Yoga Getaway next month, we are highlighting all of the stellar people who will be hosting exclusive workshops that weekend. First up- Sonia, one of the founders of Woodlot. 

What is your area of expertise?

I have always been interested in Ayurvedic and plant based healing. From a young age, my mother would share remedies passed down by Indian heritage, everything from fresh mint tea to turmeric yogurt face masks. My fascination has led to creating a company that focuses on toxin free home + body products. I'm excited to share with everyone what to look for in their home + body products, and a few DIY takeaways. I believe a lot of us really care about the toxins we put into our bodies, and this extends to the products we put on our skin and keep below our sink.

When did you know it was love?

 I feel as though I've known for a long time that I need to be creating with my hands, it has taken me awhile to get there. But I knew it was love when I saw the change our products were having in peoples lives. This is when I knew we were onto something more than candles / soap bars. 

What is your favourite thing about what you do?

 I love sharing new discoveries with friends & family. If I discover a new herb or scent that has great benefits, I want to share it with the world. I feel that there is a long way to go, but people are getting there. 

If you really knew me, you would know...

I'm a big kid at heart. <3
