Natures Gifts in response to a synthetic world
Where it started
Wychwood Alchemist is a Toronto based company owned and run by Alyx. The company started at the beginning of the pandemic. Without the ability to work she began honing the skills she learned as a teenager to begin her company. With a lot of free time, making organic soaps and skin care products kept her busy and selling to small farmer markets up north in Little Current put money in her pocket.
Where we are now
Wychwood Alchemist currently creates organic soaps and body care products. Her beard and hair oils are a customer favourite, combining organic base oils and essential oils to create intoxicating aromas. The company strives to create objects that are good for people and good for the planet. She does her best to eliminate the use of single use packaging through creative means, such as the use of dried foraged flowers instead of packing peanuts, upcycled clothing scraps from nuit atelier, and recyclable mailers. Wychwood Alchemist is driven by a need to create, innovate and a deep reverence for nature.
Alyx is currently working on a new line of knitwear which will be launched on her website in a few short weeks. The knits will be made of natural fibres, making them long lasting, beautiful and biodegradable at the end of their life cycles. She is also working to create unique wooden containers for her balms, salves and soaps using hardwood offcuts from CNC cutting. These containers will actively divert beautiful solid woods from the fire pits or landfills.
