Now presenting: LUCIA from pureliving!


The Lucia Collection is a line of luxury soaps, lotions, soy candles, and room scents created by Pure Living. Made in Montreal, the products combine rare fragrant smells, beautiful colours and intriguing textures.

The Lucia Collection line of products are made from materials like certified organic soya, organic shea butter, 100% natural vegetable and botanical oils, and organic grade 100% pure essential natural oils. Only vegetable-based colours are used and the products are never tested on animals.

why we love them

We fell in love with the way these products can be used separately, or layered together to create a sensory spa-like experience: A luxurious bath with one of the soaps; a candle beside the soaker tub; a delicate mist of the spray on your favourite linens. If you are looking to relax, refresh and renew, these are the soaps, candles, room sprays and reed diffusers for you.

As well, the Lucia Collection has a fragrance for everyone! Our favourites include Sea Watercress & Chai Tea, Bourbon Vanilla & White Tea, Goat Milk & Linseed , Olive Blossom & Laurel, Tea Leaf & Wild Honey, and Wild Ginger & Fresh Fig.

Founded by Lucie Bernier and Andre Pace, the Lucia Collection is based on the belief that as a collective whole we need to focus on the simple and pure pleasures of life; to enjoy a quite moment alone with no interference from the fast paced environment we live in.

The beautiful packaging is inspired by owner Lucie Bernier’s travels across Europe and Asia, and is printed on recycled paper with vegetable-based inks.

Now available at Essence!
