All of our products are named for the wild places they come from. We are building a new fragrance grammar of the American West. Our company is built on the simple idea that nothing smells better than the forest and that the only way to bring this beauty home is to strap on your boots and go there.
Beautiful leaf clusters and enormous flowering stalks burst forth in the spring, painting streaks of white against the rusty green hillsides.
Ingredients: dried White Sage (Salvia apiana) wrapped in organic hemp twine. No hidden ingredients. No charcoal or perfume.
Consult a health care practitioner before use if you are pregnant, nursing or suffering from a medical condition.
What we are about
All of our plants are wild harvested with the utmost sensitivity and respect for the existing wild-scape. We return to the same stands year after year to carefully monitor regrowth. We never use alien or invasive species and are actively involved in native plant restoration projects from San Diego to Seattle. 10% of all of our profits are annually donated to a portfolio of Western Wilderness Defense organizations. We revel in the intact forest habitats of the West, and tirelessly work to promote education as to how best to protect them.
How the Magic Happens!
…if it comes from nature, it is going to change… Unlike synthetic fragrances, these wilderness perfumes are extracted from real, native-plant sources.
We crawl around in mountain meadows. We smell the wet earth beneath fir trees, and try to determine exactly what those scent notes are in the wind sweeping over a glacier. We conceive of our fragrances throughout the West, on dirt roads and trails, around campfires, and formulate in our Oakland, California workshop. All to capture the beauty of the Mojave Desert at sunrise, thick blanket of fog draping the wildflower gardens of Big Sur, or a late-season, sun-baked, snow carved, glacial canyon high in the Sierra Nevada.
All Juniper Ridge products are 100% Natural and produced using old perfume making techniques including distillation, tincturing, infusion and enfleurage. A hundred years ago, all perfumes were made this way. Today we continue to handle every step of the process ourselves, from beginning to end. These formulas vary from year to year and harvest to harvest, based on rainfall, temperature, exact harvesting location, and season. The exact formula depends on what we find in the wind, a conversation with the living, wild ecology.
The outer-experimental edge of what we do is in the Field Lab. These extremely small-batch, trail-made fragrances are produced in numbers usually less than a hundred, and are designed as aromatic snapshots, capturing the wind on a particular day in a particular wild place.
NATURAL MEDITATION: Our herbal white sage (Salvia Apiana) incense bundles will transport you to a blissful night under the stars in the serene western edges of the Mojave and Sonoran deserts. They evoke a gentle, cool breeze carrying the all natural soothing smell of white sage.
BE ONE WITH NATURE: Picture yourself spending a night sleeping under the stars in the Mojave Desert. Or perhaps you are enjoying the lovely sound of a forest river, while sitting next to a warm fire in Northern California. The setting sun gilds the red bark and small, deep green leaves of the surrounding sage, mugwort and Siskiyou cedar. The air is perfumed with sharp, aromatic, and calming scents. 100% plant based — no hidden ingredients. No charcoal, synthetic fragrance or petrochemicals.
