If schlepping to the drugstore to battle line-ups of people buying discounted cans of tuna just doesn’t fit your image of the chic apothecary, you’ll love the new online store www.pharmacymix.com from a Vancouver-based female pharmacist.
The carefully selected merchandise includes classics you may already be addicted to (Alba lavender deodorant, Sisus vitamins, Smith’s Rosebud Salve, La Roche Posay sun care, Dr. Bach’s Rescue Remedy for stress) as well as new names to add to your natural medicine cabinet.
The John Masters Organics hair range includes a zinc-and-sage conditioner for dry scalp ($28) and a rosemary-peppermint detangler ($22.50) and the California Baby calming diaper rash cream ($16) really does work.
Top off the basket with fun items like Breath Palette toothpaste in flavours like White Peach and Darjeeling Tea ($6.45) and Accoutrements Band-aids printed with kisses, skulls, or sushi ($6.95).
Items are delivered within two days in biodegradable packaging.
So easy, you may never need those Dr. Bach’s stress drops again.
