Handmade soaps from Unearth Malee
$7.00- Buy Online
We fell in love with these delectable soaps with their beautiful, but not overpowering, natural scents as soon as we tried them. Maker Marie says; “Unearth Malee blossomed from my Thai-American background, which gave me the daily fortune of experiencing a wide variety of Asian cuisines, and using Eastern herbs infused in body care and wellness items.”
The result is a range of soaps for every taste, such as:
Himalayan Rose Salt Organic Soap with Himalayan pink salt, known for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Certified organic rose powder adds a gentle floral scent.
Honeysuckle Rice Milk Organic Soap contains honeysuckle extract, an antioxidant that may help soothe the skin, and adds an uplifting fragrance.
Chai Tea Chocolate Organic Soap is decadent, bold, sweet, and spicy! This moisturizing bar contains organic chai tea, organic cacao, and is spiced with clove, cinnamon and orange essential oils.
All soaps are a hefty 4.5oz – 5oz, made with a moisturizing formula of organic olive oil, organic coconut oil, and organic shea butter. They are wrapped in flower-seeded paper, which you can plant for a garden of North American wildflowers!
Bonbon Boxes from The Xocolate Bar
$15.00- Buy Online
We love the beautiful chocolates from The Xocolate Bar that taste as good as they look! Founded in 2006, The Xocolate Bar (pronounced 'shocolate') is a Latina-owned chocolate shop in Berkeley that makes award-winning, creative confections using organic, fair trade chocolate and all natural ingredients. “We find inspiration in the San Francisco Bay Area's melting pot of international cultures. As artists-turned-chocolatiers, we strive for beauty as well as deliciousness.”
Perfect for gifting or indulging, each box comes with 4 jewel-like chocolates stuffed with decadent flavor. Try:
Fruit Bonbons; deliciously fruity vegan bonbons filled with raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, and tamarind mango.
Dark Chocolate Truffles; They each have a hard chocolate shell filled with soft ganache of hazelnut gianduja, coffee, cardamom and pure dark.
Milk Classics; luscious milk chocolate bonbons for discerning palates: honey vanilla truffle, dulce de leche, salted caramel, and cookie crunch.
Reusable Silicone Under Eye Masks from Eco Collective
$25.00 - Buy Online
Started as a one-woman farmers market stand in Washington State, Eco Collective offers unique self-care products based in slow living and sustainability. “Self care isn't selfish. We hope the products we share can help ground you in routines that are empowering and uplifting — and that are sustainable, responsibly sourced, and plastic-free.”
We were overjoyed to find Eco Collective’s made in the USA under eye masks.
Infinitely reusable, and made with medical grade silicone, they are a non-toxic and effective treatment for the delicate under eye area.
Apply your favorite eye cream, serum or moisturizer (we love Jade Spa’s Jade & Ginseng Anti-Aging Eye Treatment!) and cover with the under eye mask to lock in hydration, plump and depuff.
After each use, simply wash and return them to their storage tin.
