I started Northlore because I found there was too often something missing from natural products, whether it was the quality, effectiveness, sourcing, the sustainability of the packaging, or the aesthetics.
I seek to make non-toxic products that are of the highest quality, good for people, and good for the earth— no compromise.
My products are inspired by the medicinal plants of the North, and I craft scent blends to evoke the wild places that I love. I’m proud to offer you what I’ve created and the business ethics we adhere to along the way.
