Get to Know Us

NIMKII (nim-key) - thunder

As an indigenous and queer-owned brand, inclusivity and empowerment is at the heart of all that we do. We bring you the essence of organic skincare and bath products, crafted with love and rooted in the spirit of self-care. We also don't take ourselves too seriously, so get ready to join the silliness and magical musings. 

We take a lot of pride in offering a unique blend of organic skincare and bath products that go beyond conventional beauty routines. Our formulations are a tribute to the wisdom passed down through generations, merging traditional knowledge with a modern twist.

Our products are crafted to celebrate the beauty of every individual, irrespective of gender, identity, or background. We embrace the diversity of our community and aspire to create a space where everyone feels seen, valued, and cherished.

Our journey began with a vision to intertwine the richness of indigenous traditions with a contemporary approach to self-care. Each product reflects our dedication to quality, sustainability, and the nurturing essence of nature. 

We invite you to explore our collection, where every bottle tells a story, and every jar holds the promise of transformative self-love. Join us in embracing your roots, celebrating your uniqueness, and infusing a little magic into your daily self-care routine. Welcome to NIMKII — where skincare becomes a ritual, and every moment is an opportunity for self love. 🌿🌈


A love note from our founder, Shannon-Blue Nanibush: 

Miigwetch for going on this journey with me! I wouldn't be where I am today without the incredible support from our community. What started as a little Instagram shop selling my mother's dreamcatchers, NIMKII has grown into more than I could have ever imagined. Getting to share my passion for bath and beauty products has been a dream I've had for quite sometime. I hope you'll enjoy what's next for this brand, our story and the memories we'll make together along the way.
