November Reflections

November Reflections

by Caylie Warkentin



This past month has been a time of deeply inspired creative energy, of planning and mood boarding, and of unbridled excitement for upcoming December events.

This December 2nd and 3rd, we attended Bespoke Market in Whistler - a curated market for B.C creators and designers. We enjoyed sharing our sunshine and our vitamin D lip care with you.

We are also extremely excited to announce that ARALEA has been selected for The Detox Market's Launchpad program (Class of 2023)!

The Detox Market is an online and store-front retailer focused on clean and sustainable beauty / wellness products. The Detox Market sets rigorous standards for the products they carry on its shelves and online.

We are excited to form such a close working relationship with The Detox Market and look forward to the months ahead.  

Lastly, we launched our new branding in November, with sleek, bright, and modern packaging. We feel that our rebranding perfectly captures the essence of ARALEA.

We hope you are able to find moments of serenity during this season.


Our love affair with Livia Sweets is ongoing. A locally-owned neighbourhood cafe and restaurant, Livia draws inspiration from traditional Italian aperitives and sources local in-season ingredients.

Pop in for a festive mimosa or a candied blood orange danish. Leave with holiday gifts like a raspberry mimosa kit, poached organic apricots, or homemade holiday cookies.

Christmas markets are a favourite December pastime. This winter, we're a part of Little Mountain Shop's Holiday Popup - 
a curated market of woman-led and BIPOC creatives at Polygon Gallery. Discover local vendors and try our vitamin D lip care!

Now until December 24th. 
On Wednesday through Sunday. 
North Vancouver.

Fleurs de Villes is returning to Vancouver this December - an event made possible by the creativity of dozens of local florists. Wander through downtown Vancouver and stumble across 50+ fresh and silk floral arrangements in unexpected places.

December 9 - 18
Downtown Vancouver

A plant-forward winter cookbook

Greenfeast: Autumn, Winter by Nigel Slater is our go-to winter cookbook with simple, elevated plant-forward dishes. Cloth-bound and high-quality, this cookbook will nurture creativity in the kitchen.


Our go-to everyday lip balm. Pair it with your favourite lip colour, or wear it on its own. Jam-packed with essential vitamin D, our locally designed lip care is as nutritive as it is nourishing. Stock up on stocking stuffers with our SUN KISS BALM - now two for $30.

Botanical Body Serum

You know that we're a big fan of Sangre de Fruta. Our skin is, too. Ward off dry skin with this deeply hydrating body serum. Locally-crafted and formulated with previous oils and botanicals, this body serum will keep your skin soft and supple throughout winter.
