We are Ellen and Tye,
We Co-Founded Three Arrows Body Co.
Tye likes to spend a lot of free time outdoors in the Rocky Mountains near our home of Calgary, Alberta. Between hiking, snowboarding and splitboarding he has had a fair number of run-ins with trees in the area and Tye always loved the smell of fresh pine. When playing in the backcountry but working in the city meant waiting till the weekend to go play in the bushes again Tye wanted to smell like a tree. He wanted to find a way to recreate that smell when he was in the city so he was never to far removed from the nature around us.
After unsuccessfully looking for deodorants and beard balms that could give that same smell of fresh pine he decided to try make his own using some basic recipes from friends and the internet.
His first few attempts didn't go so well - staining clothes, wrong consistency and so on. However after more attempts and a little research he found products that worked for us - and will work for you too!
It was important to us to work with natural products because of Ellen's background in aesthetics and Massage Therapy. After years of working with harmful chemicals in the aesthetics world she refused to use any artificial scents or parabens in our recipes.
Ellen also has extensive knowledge in skin care treatments through various salons and spas across Canada and Australia. Using this knowledge Ellen was able to choose the best natural ingredients to suit the needs of ourselves and our clients.
Her experience has also helped when producing our own unique scent blends from only the best 100% essential oils we can get. Finding just the right balance of top notes with subtle undertones we have been happy with several results for our main line of Three Arrows Body Co. products as well as custom blends for shops and store fronts we supply.
Our end goal was to provide recipes that are pleasing to the nose and the body whenever they are used. It didn't take long before our friends and co-workers were interested in our products and we started to produce things like shampoos, conditioners and more. This is when Three Arrows Body Co. really started to gain momentum and became a reality for us to provide all natural products to everyone from head to toe.
We are always looking forward to what the future holds and we are hopeful that Three Arrows Body Co. can provide you with what it has provided for us - a connection to nature found only by smelling like a tree!
Why Buy Three Arrows products over all of the others?
We are not the type to cut corners; We work hard to research every ingredient that goes into our products to make sure you are getting a quality, all-natural product.
When sourcing our ingredients we prefer to buy local. If we can’t find it locally we make sure to buy from other Canadian business and suppliers. Supporting local business and Canadian Business is very important to us and we believe that our loonies should stay in Canada.
We do our very best to find ethically sourced and fair trade items available to us to provide you with the best product we can.
All of our packaging is recyclable and we are currently looking at options for biodegradable packaging!
We have tested all of our creations on ourselves first, our friends second and never on animals!
