Vancouver Mom: Mai Mowrey, Scentuals Bodycare from Nature

Mai Mowrey is the mom of three and founder of Scentuals Bodycare from Nature, an all-natural body care company. It wasn’t until she moved to Vancouver from Saskatoon that she found her passion and gained a true appreciation for the natural beauty the West Coast has to offer.

“My three boys were very active in sports and I have had the opportunity to travel all over the lower mainland visiting various rinks, fields, and ball parks while spending hours with fellow sport moms. This time I spent with other active and health conscious moms opened my eyes to the unique active and natural lifestyle Vancouver has to offer.”

Mai’s favorite spots around town!

Deer Lake Park

It is so peaceful to walk the boardwalk around the lake. You almost forget you are in a city because all you can hear are the birds. If you look up into some of the trees you can actually see giant Heron nests. Quite the sight!
6450 Deer Lake Ave, Burnaby, (604) 294-7450

Buntzen Lake

View-from-North-BeachI love coming here with the family! It is a great place for picnics, and there’s plenty of room for the kids to play catch and ride their bikes. The lake is gorgeous and refreshing to swim in, but my favourite part is the abundance of trails.
Park Access Road, Anmore, (604) 469-9679

Grouse Grind

A great way to get fit and exercise, I love to go there in the morning and end up on the top of the mountain with a fantastic view of Vancouver. I love that feeling of accomplishment as I take in the scene with my husband. It does get busy sometimes but it is nice to be around people doing the same thing. The fresh air and the fresh coffee at the top are my motivation.

Burnaby Winter Club

There is nothing like watching hockey in a local rink with a warm blanket and hot chocolate. I love cheering for my sons and watching them have fun on the ice. Burnaby Winter Club is a historic hockey barn where you can get that classic ice rink feel.

Vancouver Sea Wall

 Artisan Farmers Market at Deer Lake

I love coming here to check out all the fresh produce and goods that are all local. They typically have live music and arts and crafts to check out as well. I love getting organic corn when it’s in season here!

Granville Island

Love to go there on the weekend and feel like a tourist at home.  I love the food, music and overall atmosphere. Taking the boat to Granville Island is also a delight!
