ORESTA organic skin care is anything but typical. ORESTA is more than a spa, more than an eco-beauty boutique. ORESTA is an experience. Walk into one of our three brick and mortar locations in three of Ottawa's hippest neighbourhoods: the Glebe, Hintonburg and New Edinburgh. Each ORESTA location is named to honour its past occupant: confectionery, apothecary and gallery. Experience the uniqueness of each location, the-down-to-earth yet knowledgeable staff who are committed to offering custom tailored expertise to customers on chemical-free, organic, results-oriented spa rituals and beauty products. Enjoy the personally curated selection of organic facial, body and hair care products and cosmetics. If we wouldn't use it ourselves, we won't carry it. Original artwork by Christopher Griffin adorns all three locations. Any questions regarding your online order, please contact ORESTA Gallery.
464 O'Connor Street
Our flagship location, ORESTA organic skin care confectionery was founded in 2001 in a former corner store located in the Glebe, a historic neighbourhood of Ottawa. A confectionery since 1901, it retains the original beadboard, pine floors, confectionery shelving and large storefront windows. The organic feel of the building extends to its modern, unique hand-carved environmentally friendly concrete exterior. The building is powered by renewable energy through bullfrog power and solar panelled hot water.613.231.7022 See More
1121 Wellington Street West
Our sister location, ORESTA organic skin care apothecary was open in 2010 in a former apothecary located in Ottawa's Hintonburg neighbourhood. Originally an apothecary, the hundred year old stone and brick building maintains its charm with the original wood cabinetry, stained glass and bubble windows and even the antique cash register intact. Formerly, Tony's Shoe Repair, the space also retains some antique cobbler pieces. Hintonburg is a mix of independent clothing retailers as well as being one of Ottawa’s premier food destinations.613.680.0415 See More
137 Beechwood Avenue
In 2012, our third location, ORESTA organic skin care gallery in New Edinburgh was born. Formerly an art gallery, this is the most contemporary of our locations. The 100 year old building has a sorted past, once being the home of a famous milliner. Our gallery space is a unique contrast of antique pine floors, modern dark wooden shelving and large bright walls with original art by Christopher Griffin to give a gallery feel. Located in the up and coming neighbourhood of New Edinburgh, ORESTA is in good company with a growing number of specialty stores and a focus on arts and cultural events.613.695.0137 See More
