A new apothecary is open in Kensington. Pranic Forest, specializes in organic botanical skincare, natural treatments and a variety of organic apothecary products. It’s welcoming new clients, natural healing enthusiasts and folks curious about learning more about herbal remedies.
Pranic Forest’s owner Amanda Spicer is a master herbalist, aromatherapist, intuitive energy channeler, cosmetologist and artist. Everything you find in within the apothecary is made in small batches. The apothecary storefront features products that Spicer has either created herself or curated as her favourite complimentary items. You’ll find the full Pranic Forest skincare line among French cult favourite organic toothpaste Lebon and locally-made Kin+Pod chocolates, as well as natural herbal remedies, candles and incense. Bundles of beautiful handpicked B.C. lavender are available for purchase.
Pranic Forest also offers services including facials, aromatherapy and custom perfume blending. If you’re seeking out some serious relaxation and a skin refresh, try the Cosmic Facial ($125). It uses products from the Pranic Forest skincare line including organic botanical masks, exfoliants, serums and oils. The facial also uses multi-reflexology tools, crystals and facial massage. One of the signature elements of the Cosmic Facial is experiencing the healing sounds of crystal frequencies as your practitioner uses alchemy bowls. The facial is finished off with a soothing foot massage, which is said to activate your lower chakras and ground down the new energy the facial has infused you with.
