When Portland couple Matt and Madeline Morris decided to take a neighborhood beekeeping class, they had no idea how it would change their lives. As Matt’s passion for beekeeping grew, so did Madeline’s expertise in crafting natural and effective herbal tonics from the raw honey Matt produced. Before two years had passed, they’d gone from two hives to forty, and their products were in demand across the city. Made with their own raw honey, raw organic apple cider vinegar, and house-crafted organic herbal extracts, these innovative formulas address everything from immune support to stress relief. And with cold season in full swing, we’re offering a 25% off all of their products to help everyone get through the Holidays on their feet. Choose from Elderberry Honey Tonic, Throat & Lung Honey Tonic, Relaxation Honey Tonic, Ginseng Honey Tonic and Honey Propolis Throat Spray.
Over a decade ago, two friends — Lori Basson & Sarah Hanna — tried making soap. After much hard work, experimentation, and a large inventory of soap curing in their basement, Camamu was born. All of their soaps are still lovingly handmade, in keeping with their commitment to artisan production methods. Always all-natural, Camamu soaps are formulated to provide superlative care to the skin.
Alaffia makes some of the finest shea butter products in the world.
They’re also making a big difference for the women of Togo, West Africa, who face staggering rates of unemployment. “In Togo, women’s skills were not deemed worthy of the workplace,” says Alaffia’s Togo-born founder, Olowo-n'djo Tchala. “We wanted to create gender empowerment by using women’s traditional knowledge.”
That traditional knowledge—the pounding, heating, and blending of the shea nut to make shea butter—just happens to create a superior product. Unlike stark white “refined” shea butter, Alaffia’s rich golden shea reaches us in its natural state—with all of its natural antioxidants intact.
