Bright & Lion Botanicals began the first time we met and talked about a dream to one day become farmers and live closer to the land. While we saved up to make this dream a reality, we immersed ourselves in the help of others to gain knowledge in propagation and growing of lavender, certifications in aromatherapy, the science of natural skin care and the development of a high quality product line of essential oil blends.
The name Bright & Lion comes from a family history associated with the Oxen teams that used to work the land throughout Nova Scotia. Each team of Oxen was named Bright, for the Ox on the right and Lion for the Ox on the left, each working in tandem. We like to think of ourselves as a hard working team that compliments each other in our skill sets.
In the summer of 2019, we found our dream property just outside of the historic towns of Mahone Bay and Lunenburg in beautiful Nova Scotia. We relocated and set ourselves to work. And wouldn't you know it, we have found ancient Ox shoes all over the property. Seems it was meant to be.
We look forward to welcoming you for a visit to enjoy the fields of purple starting in the summer of 2023.
