The Wellness Shop

Opening its doors in September, 2013, the Wellness Shop was born out of customer demand for an increased selection of all-natural health and beauty products.

The shop is divided into different sections:

  • All-natural personal care products and cosmetics
  • Supplements, minerals, vitamins, and herbal tonics
  • Essential oils and other holistic therapies
  • Bulk medicinal herbs
  • Canadian-made designer clothing.

As of December 2015, we are also proud to offer a selection of our Wellness Shop products online, at shop.herbandspiceshop.com.

The Herb & Spice Shop is an independent, locally owned health & natural food store which has been serving Ottawa's Centretown neighbourhood and beyond for over 30 years.
