Located in Lantzville on Vancouver Island, my passion for the ocean and it’s incredible restorative healing powers became the focus of my skincare formulations. I'm a Naturopath and a clinical Aromatherapist and have always been drawn to handcrafting eco-friendly, natural apothecary products made with organic, sustainable ingredients & pure essential oils.
At Wychbury Ave we strive to provide bath and body products that promote healthy living and encourage sustainable environmental practices. All of our products are palm-free, made in small batches from scratch with fair trade and ethically sourced materials. Recognizing that the essential oil industry has negative effects on our natural resources and excess use of oils is not beneficial to our health, we choose to use essential oils in our soaps that are not from plant species at risk and only in small quantities when appropriate. All of our fragrances are paraben and phthalate-free and used well below standard concentrations to provide lightly scented products that promote joy and well-being.
I create handcrafted high-quality terry cloth head towels locally. Each terry cloth turban is designed and sewn by hand. The material is sourced in Canada. Custom designed finishes make cherished gifts. By creating my own head turban I realized that my needs were similar to others needs and after having numerous friends and family asking me to create one for them I new I needed to create this business to help others pamper themselves.

Like a lot of us, Ina started experiencing skin irritation, food sensitivities and allergies to her environment over the last 10 years. And like most everyone in the same situation would do: stopped using dryer sheets, scented laundry detergent and converted to unscented soaps and skin care - but these products (even 8 years ago) were hard to find or if found, were expensive, quickly sold out and then were dis-continued and replaced with something containing harsh chemicals, perfumes or allergy causing ingredients. As soon as her first (of 9) grandchildren arrived back in 2012, Ina wanted to find natural and safe products for the babies and found they were incredibly over-priced or over-scented.
Ina has never been one to sit idle and is curious to boot. She thought there had to be a way to get a consistent product at a reasonable price that contained only the simplest ingredients possible. It all started with the kid’s bubble bath and facial creams.
The transition to formulating skin & body care products was easy and not far off from accounting! The bulk of the work is with the averages, weights, and percentages of the lovely, natural ingredients she uses. Thus, the creation of skinsationnaturally!

My soul is at home when I can dance around the forest, feel Mother Earth, listen to the whispering trees and play with the Faeries.
Love and Light is my mantra
SUNSTONE aroma. Sunstone is a crystal, the energetics of that stone embodies what I want my business to be and a reflection of what I strive to be.
SUNSTONE carries the energy of the sun god Ra, the sun brings light, energy and life force to the earth. Sunstone brings warmth, openness and strength. It stimulates self healing powers within the body as do ESSENTIAL OILS, another love of mine. SUNSTONE aroma was born and continues to grow, evolve and unfold.
