Salt Spring Island Emporium
We are very fortunate on Salt Spring Island to have so many people with a special affinity for plants. I am happy to offer the creations of these amazing plant people who transmute the nourishing and healing properties of foods, fungi and herbs into potent and pleasing salts, seasonings, mushroom extracts, herbal teas, tinctures, salves, linaments, oils and creams.
Elizabeth Buchanan’s Salt Spring Savouries are extremely popular at our Tuesday and Saturday Farmers’ Markets. Her organically grown dried salts and seasonings give a wonderful boost to dressings, dips, roasted veggies, tofu, popcorn, soups and stews.
Elizabeth has also created a Nettle Chai Tea that has all the punch and flavour of regular Chai without the caffeine.

Handmade 100 per cent beeswax candles. Environmentally friendly, these candles are long-burning with a sweet fragrance and a bright warm glow. The tapers are 8 inches long and each pair is hand-dipped 35-40 times to create a classic traditional candle which burns 8-9 hours. A popular choice each year.
