Founded in 2013, originally as Medicine River Soap Co., JOSEPH HENRY 1895 is an Apothecary and Store of everyday mindful and simple goods inspired by nature, traditional craftsmanship and family heritage.
Their love for storytelling and adventure encouraged the creation of all-natural soap line for adventurous souls. They later added a collection of beeswax candles made using traditional methods and handcrafted with locally sourced Canadian beeswax.
JOSEPH HENRY 1895 also offers a small selection of carefully curated eco-friendly products made by talented, likeminded creatives.
WHY JOSEPH HENRY 1895?
This story started in 1895 when having sold his few worldly possessions, Joseph (their great grandfather) traveled across the ocean from the Baltics to the shores of South Africa. He journeyed on covering over 1000 miles of rugged terrain with a friend, horse, compass, pistol and dreams of a better life in a new land to later set up an outpost supplying nomads and adventurers.
Joseph and his son Henry – a boxer, a mining engineer and a Hurricane fighter pilot during WW2 are the original adventurers behind the brand "Joseph Henry 1895".
They hope that one day, they too, will be able to have an outpost/general store and apothecary to offer you high quality handcrafted goods, inspired by stories of adventure. Goods that would be used, worn and loved, and passed from one generation to another, intrinsically connecting us to the past.
