About

My name is Mila Greaves and I started 9Senses in 2015 to share my passion for products that comfort the body and mind.

I’m the mother of two beautiful girls who inspire me everyday. One of my daughters is on the Autism spectrum and is a sensory seeker, meaning she is very sensitive to stimulation from her environment.

To help her, I spent countless hours learning to make natural, soothing products that she would find comforting. I started with handmade soaps and body products and then branched out to make weighted blankets, lap pads and Flax & Lavender Hot/Cold pillows.

Like many other entrepreneurs, 9Senses started as a part-time passion project. The incredible feedback from friends and family who loved receiving our gentle soaps, soothing bath soaks and relaxing weighted sensory products, neck pillows as gifts led us to start exhibiting at local markets . We soon had a loyal, growing following and we spent almost every weekend at craft fairs throughout Ontario. Now I dedicate myself full-time to making an increasing range of natural bath and body products and sending our goods as far as Portugal, Turkey and Romania.

Family is very important to me. That’s why it’s such a joy that my two daughters and husband work alongside me to build 9Senses into a values-driven business that touches the lives of more and more people every year.

Why We’re One of a Kind

We make all our products with attention to detail and offer customer orders due to the nature of our Sensory products. Weighted blankets are not one fits all. Should be 10% of the person's body weight and specialty for children it's important for them to pick a fabric that they can connect with and support them to regulate and relax.


Primary Materials

Weighted Blankets are made with high quality quilting grade cotton or cotton flannel two layers of muslin cotton, the tough stuff, to keep the pellets in and then with backing again with cotton fabric. This sandwich is stitched together making individual pockets so the pellets can be evenly distributed through out. All blanket and outside edges are double stitched and then I add a quilt binding to add protection and provide a crisp clean edge. Weighted products are filled with 100% clean non-toxic Polly Pellets. We are registered with the government.


Our Neck Pillows are filled with Food grade Flax seed and Lavender buds or unscented. These cold/warm neck pillows have a removable cover that can be machine washed and are available in different sizes.


Shipping Policy

We use Canada Post for all our shipping services.

Neck pillows are shipped on the next 3 days of purchase and all our weighted blankets a week after purchase.
