Hello & Salaam!

Hi! My name is Sobia Hussain. I am a creative entrepreneur, soap artisan, freelance writer & illustrator based in Toronto, Canada. I founded The Olive Tree Soap Company in 2011, an ethical, eco-friendly artisan skincare line. I have collaborated with Tetley Tea with their launch of an all-natural Signature Tea Collection, and my products were featured on CityLine, the longest running & most successful daytime show for women in Canadian history. My line ranges from finely crafted vegan soaps, natural deodorants, lip balms, organic argan oil, kids' collection, a special Hajj & Umrah collection, and a men's collection including a beard care line.

I'm also Editor of Muslim Gift Guide and contributor of various international publications including Halal Foodie Magazine, Halal Gems, My Halal Kitchen and Productive Muslim. I have had the privilege to be a part of the creative initiative at Kaamilah, a unique online boutique offering a beautiful shopping experience & conducting local workshops focusing on empowering creative women entrepreneurs. On occassion, I conduct creative children's Discovery Workshops designed to help kids discover their inner talents through exploration in the arts and science.
