Happy Family Day, BC!

Falling on the second Monday of February, British Columbians celebrate Family Day, taking extra time to enjoy activities with their loved ones – celebrating family life and the importance of spending time with family.

Throughout the province and across the Lower Mainland, family-friendly events and activities have been organized, many for free. It’s the hope that many families will take this opportunity to discover areas of British Columbia that are new to them, or to rediscover familiar places. The Vancouver Sun lists a range of activities that can be enjoyed by you and your family. A few that have grabbed my attention?

  • The Sea to Sky Gondola . With lift tickets at 50% off, this is a perfect way to enjoy outdoor activities including snow-tubing, and children’s activities plus face-painting and live music.
  • Family Day at Fort Langley. I still recall spending lovely weekends here when our children were younger. Take in the traditions of the families at Fort Langley – from varied backgrounds like Scottish, Hawaiian, First Nations and Metis and enjoy the feature presentation on First Nations resources, make some Scottish bannock, or challenge your skills playing ‘Ulu Maika – a game meant to train Hawaiian warriors.
  • Family Fun on the Farm (Southlands). Which child wouldn’t enjoy spending a day on a working farm, meeting the chickens, goats, sheep, horses, and ponies, including pony rides. Enjoy roast marshmallows on the bonfire.

Family, derived from the Latin, familia, is a group of people affiliated either by by birth, marriage or other relationship) or co-residence. Today, the word “family”, is also used to create more inclusive categories such as close friends, community, nationhood, global village, and humanism.

Whoever you spend Family Day with and however you define ‘family’, Happy Family Day, BC!

I'm loving this deodorant from Apothekari! I'm very skeptical about natural deodorants because I perspire a lot and had always used antiperspirants. Wanting to go more natural, I've tried a few natural deodorants and this is by far the best. I can apply in the a.m., go overnight, and work out the next a.m. without having to reapply. I also love the smell. I have scent sensitivities and this citrus-ginger mix doesn't bother me at all. Super-happy with my purchase.

My recent order of apothecary

I’m so pleased with my products! My skin is already more radiant, pores are tighter !

Great deodorant!

I’ve tried many natural deodorants with mixed results. The Apothekari deodorant works GREAT, even when doing intense workouts. I also like the scent of all of the products. The skin of my underarms seems to have improved texture as well. I will definitely repurchase.

It works wonders! But strong scent...

This is the first and only natural deodorant that has kept me fresh for more than 6 hours. I put it on at night after my shower and it keeps me Oder free for around 12 hours. LUMÉ couldn’t do that for me! I wouldn’t buy this particular scent again though, I thought it would have a nice balance between the Neroli and Rose, but I cannot smell Rose at all - in my opinion it comes off smelling very manly. Next time I will order the lavender and bergamot scent.

The deodorant is great, gently shake and roll on. It’s very watery so I rub my arms back and forth to get it applied everywhere and then wait for a second in front of the fan before putting on a shirt. But it sooo worth it!!! Amazing deodorant and no rashes! My skin feels healthy. I have been using it for about a month.

Game Changer!

I've tried prescriptions and other products that claim to help with vaginal dryness and none compare to this product. So natural and no added hormones or perfumes. A real game changer for me! Also BEST name for this!
