Tansy Lane is a unique destination in Windsor, Nova Scotia. On a visit to the Little Tansy Shop, opening in February, 2023, you will be greeted with a cup of tea by owner, Carole Coleman who has turned her retirement into a search for the past when her family lived on the Fundy shores since the early 1800's.
During that time generations of women in her family gathered the wild flowers and herbs on the shore, in the fields and in the woods. In the days before pharmacies, the healing properties of these plants were used to nurture their loved ones.
Now Carole is continuing to promote the connections of these wild and heritage plants with her many natural products. The creams and salves are made the same way her great grandmother would have made them. Bottles of tinctures and infused oils line the shelves beside jars of wild crafted herbs and naturally grown plants. They complement the other body care products all made with pure natural ingredients and essential oils. Never one to be idle, Carole will have her products available online Spring 2023. Her line of Specialty Teas will be available in various locations as well as at the Wolfville Farmers' Market on Saturdays and at the Wolfville Farmers' Market Store.
