Health Hut opens new Toronto location

Health Hut moves to College + Ossington

We have a very special soft spot for Health Hut. They were our very first Ruby client, back when we launched in January after all. So it brings all kinds of joy to see founder Tara Miller make such huge strides! Cue the confetti: Health Hut is now open at College + Ossington (786 College St., Toronto to be exact).

10x the size. 

Nestled between Ossington St. and Shaw St., the light-filled space houses over 60 hand-picked top shelf green beauty and lifestyle brands (local and international) as well as founder and holistic nutritionist Tara Miller’s consulting practice. The new Toronto location replaces the 100 sq ft location on Harbord St., signaling an expansion for the brand.

Staying true to the philosophy that what we put on our bodies holds just as much importance as what we put in them, each and every product in the shop is promised to be free of harmful chemicals and additives. More than that, the array of goods lining the shelves of Health Hut focus on bringing the act of self-love back to daily self-care rituals.


“I believe in the power of nature’s most incredible ingredients and their ability to make you look good and feel great,”

Tara Miller

What's new at #HHliving

Expanding beyond skincare and beauty products, Health Hut now offers lifestyle goods such as eco-friendly yoga mats from Toronto-based brand ALWAYS x ALWAYS (a Ruby client, too!), natural dental care options from David’s and BKind, and turkish towels from Stray and Wander. Locally grown, seasonal floral bouquets from Kitz & Daughters will be available on weekends.

The new shop will also offer a diverse line-up of events, from yoga to mini facials.

#clientlove: Health Hut on social

When you have a client like Health Hut, creating social content is a bit of a dream. 

As a purveyor of natural products—from beauty & skincare to travel & baby—Health Hut is a total leader in the non-toxic lifestyle space in Canada. Owner Tara Miller is not only passionate advocate for healthy, safe products but she's also a Holistic Nutritionist so her expertise on the subject means there are all kinds of territories to play in, content wise.

I was so excited to build on her visual story through Instagram. The goal? To create a fresh and inspiring library of images that showcase new products and speak to health tips & tricks (hello, value add!). I aimed for crisp, clear imagery with plenty of white space, allowing the cheerful colours to really pop. Pair it with a customized strategy and community management guidelines, and the feed is continuing to grow and engage. 

This is just a glimpse! Check out @shophealthhut and #HHLiving to see these shots in the wild.
