It is always exciting when home grown (Canadian) talent makes it big! Barb wrote a book called the 7 Virtues on a healing journey after tragedy struck her best friend and the perfume is the product that came to fruition from this journey. The essential oils are sourced from plants from countries like Haiti and Afghanistan that are rebuilding after natural disasters or after war. Some of the ingredients include Vetiver from Haiti, Lime and Basil from Iran, Orange Blossom and Rose from Afghanistan.
Last night, fragrance entrepreneur Barb Stegemann hosted a bevy of talented Canadians at 550 Park Ave to introduce her line the 7 Virtues.

Barb Stegemann, CBC Dragons’ Den Winner, was introduced to me by a mutual friend and her zest for life and passion for her business is admirable!
