Sisters Sage is an Indigenous brand that handcrafts wellness and self-care products inspired by the owners’ culture and traditions. Founders, Lynn-Marie and Melissa Rae Angus, believe strongly in building community, honouring culture, respecting the land, and amplifying the voices of other Indigenous entrepreneurs. Their homemade soaps, bath bombs, salves, and smokeless smudge sprays pay homage to their ancestral teachings and combine traditional with non-traditional scents while promoting environmental sustainability. Sisters Sage donates its products, time, and money, to the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre, WISH, UNYA, and Vancouver’s Overdose Prevention Society DTES. The sisters ran a successful fundraiser this summer providing over 70 back to school backpacks full of school supplies to inner city Indigenous youth returning to school. Their success and visibility empower people who are eager to connect and identify with a meaningful brand. Hardworking and dedicated to economic reconciliation, Sisters Sage is a story of resilience, which expresses pride in their Indigenous roots, a love for the land, for what they do and for the products they create.
