The piece is super cute but the smell wears off pretty quickly

Hi there! With 100% natural scents there is no chemical filler and during the summer the scent does wear off quicker due to the the heat. To re-scent your diffuser, simply add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to each side and it'll be refreshed and ready for you to enjoy. Thanks for your feedback!

About

raised in southern california just a few miles away from the ocean with the mountains to the north and the deserts to the east, i have always been fascinated with the natural world around me.

battling chronic migraines since i was a very young child, i have always been extremely sensitive to chemically based scents and products. a mere walk by a candle store could instantly activate a painful migraine with one sniff. needless to say, i did not partake in the bubble gum or wild cherry scents of my youth.

so, i began creating my own scents and products as a healthier alternative to the chemical filled options on the market that i was allergic to. within my scents, i focus on pulling inspiration and ingredients from the natural world, utilizing old school techniques paired with eco-friendly practices. blending a combination of ingredients grown in my gardens with wild harvested plants picked fresh at their peak, i hand process them to preserve their potency while pairing them with other responsibly sourced ingredients from small farms and ingredient suppliers across the united states.

as a chronic migraine suffer, i only make and sell products that i use myself. combining my knowledge with my stronger then normal sense of smell allows me to create unique scents that not only smell really, really good but are actually good for you.

based in san diego california, i handcraft each one of my scents and multi-functional products from plant to bottle with my three pug kiddos (fergus, gracie and annahbelle) giving the final sniff of approval.

when i don't have my hands submerged in the earth, i'm usually busy telling smart ass jokes, directing a film production company, taking photographs for money, or writing down both random and pondered thoughts for all of the world to see.

PACKAGING
all products are packaged in branded re-usable glass bottles, drawstring bags, and compostable glassine bags with eco-friendly labels. orders are shipped in upcycled/recyclable boxes and packing materials to be as eco-friendly as possible. please re-use, recycle and compost all packaging materials as much as you can!

INGREDIENTS
you'll never find any funky, can never pronounce, chemical crap in my products. all scents and products are made from natural, from the earth ingredients that i grow in my home gardens, wild harvest, or source it from top quality independent suppliers through which i support other small businesses. every time you make a purchase a bald eagle sings "born free" so give yourself a well deserved pat on the back. you've earned it.

PROCESS
good things take time and so do all my scents and products. all products are handcrafted in small batches utilizing old school craftsmanship techniques, meaning that they can take a few weeks to a few months to create from start to finish. so when a product is sold out, it's out until the next batch is ready or new ingredients sprout from the earth. join the newsletter or follow along on instagram to be notified when a product is restocked.

SHELF LIFE
the average shelf life of my products ranges from 6-12 months. however, because my products are 100% natural, with no chemical preservatives in them, they can actually last a bit longer. when in doubt, look at it and sniff it. if it looks "off" or smells "off" to you then it's probably time to get a replacement. bottom line, keep scents out of direct sunlight and heat, and be sure to store in a cool, dry place.

COLOR CODED SYSTEM
the natural world is not only a very important part of what i create but it's also an important part of my daily life. i like to call it my personal earth elements - ocean, mountains, desert and city. i was raised in a major metropolitan city just a few miles away from the ocean with mountains to the north and deserts to the east. all of these earth elements are a part of who i am and what i love. therefor, all my products fall under one of those four categories. you can identify the category a specific product falls under by looking at the color of the logo emblem on the label.

blue ~ ocean / green ~ mountains / gold ~ desert / grey ~ city
