Climb into your favorite yoga pants, unroll your mat, begin your sun salutations and prepare to have your chakras aligned by our favorite mood booting incidents. Juniper Ridge, creating products out of pure love for wilderness & to protect the wild places they originate from.  Connection.. this also being a key piece in the making of their products, enforcing the idea to find a connection with nature by also finding the connection with parts of ourselves.

Ok we get it.. they’re products are great.  Wanna know what’s even better?  Last year, their efforts protected 330,000 acres of coastal wilderness in Northern CA with the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument.  Yes we said National Monument – in which they grabbed the attention of former President Obama who signed for it.  I’m impressed.  Not only do their products speak for themselves, the company is speaking for the world.  Since starting the business in 2011, donations have been over a quarter of a million dollars backed by eagerly donating 10% of profits or 1% of sales, whichever is greater, to organizations dedicated to protecting their wild.

Products are 100% Wildcrafted and produced using old perfume making techniques including distillation, tincturing, infusion and enfleurage. A hundred years ago, all perfumes were made this way – but today, they are the only ones who handle every step of the process themselves, from beginning to end. These formulas vary from year to year and harvest to harvest, based on rainfall, temperature, exact harvesting location, and season.  Take a look at the name of your Juniper Ridge product, or even the product’s harvest number stamped on the label – each name having it’s own specific meaning to the area in which the product was harvested from or take the harvest number you find and check out their site to see photos of the plants and extraction techniques that were used in the process.We’ve stocked our own store with their Incense & Smudge Sticks… which by frankly have been quite the popular items heading out the door.  Known to “wash off” objects or spaces by blessing, cleansing, and healing, we pulled these products for those in need of some sage therapy or new homeowners looking to bless and cleanse their new space.  Need more from Juniper Ridge?  Check out their site linked below to snag more of their wild products.
