For Him: Juniper Ridge Soaps Winter 2012

We first met Alli, Obi and the team from Juniper Ridge about a year ago under the bright city lights in Las Vegas and we immediately fell for their range of sustainably wild-harvested soaps and fragrances. Hearing stories of how they’d been staying out in the desert under the stars in their mobile distilling unit (pictured above) to source some of the fine ingredients the deserts surrounding Las Vegas had to offer (while we cozied up in our beds at the hotel) made us love the story and brand even more. This holiday season we finally brought the range to Victoria at Still Life For Him and the response was amazing.

Juniper Ridge bring the mountains into your home – their amazing team harvests wild plant trimmings, distill our own aromatic oils, and make soaps that evoke the beautiful places that they come from – Big Sur, Mt. Hood, the Redwoods, Sierra Nevada, the desert… With a generous 10% of profits donated to groups who defend western wilderness.

All Juniper Ridge Soaps we received for Winter 2012 have been a big hit. The natural fragrance extracted in the field or in the warehouse are done so using pre-industrial perfume techniques – juice presses, converted whiskey stills, steam, and crazy copper pipes. Ingredients in the soaps are all natural: saponified organic coconut, olive and jojoba oils, tree pitch, plant sap/juice, steam-distilled essential oils.
