Welcome to Bubbles & Balms!

The Saint John City Market is now home to Bubbles & Balms – specializing in essential oils and organic self-care items.  Husband and wife team, Justin and Judith, have moved back home after establishing this business out west and are being very well received in Saint John.  Judith and Justin make all of the naturally scented products by hand and a chat with either of them at their shop will point you in the right direction.  That’s if you happen to get past where your nose points you – there are some wonderfully aromatic items at Bubbles & Balms in the form of bath fizzes, body butters, bubble truffles, natural deodorants and much more.

Stop by for some Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers and welcome Bubbles & Balms to the neighbourhood!
