“When gold-seekers struggled into the Yukon during the Gold Rush of 1898, they couldn’t stop at a medical clinic when they felt poorly. Klondike pioneers carried their medicines with them and made new ones on the trail from local plants.
It is in that spirit of self-reliance and intimacy with nature that Klondike Apothecary was born. Like the apothecaries of old, which were the precursor to the modern pharmacy, Klondike Apothecary explores the healing power of plants in all natural remedies.
Klondike Apothecary products are made by hand using high quality herbs, pure essential oils, superior vegetable oils and northern beeswax. Many of our herbs are wildcrafted or grown organically in the Yukon. ”

Circumpolar Musings is an almost daily, random selection of news of the Circumpolar North, culled from online sources.
The site was begun as an experiment in using Manila to construct web and news (blog) sites. Collecting northern news items and items that contribute to a greater appreciation for the people who live and work in the North seemed like a useful thing to do”
