We recommend the Daily Essentials Set, which is specifically formulated for all skin types and ages. The products in this range include their signature oil cleanser, toner, and serum to target conditions such as acne, rosacea, and signs of aging. A perfect gift for the skincare fanatic or for those with extra dry and sensitive skin during the colder months.

Why wouldn’t we brag about our sheets!?

That is why we use only the finest washed linens to ensure softness and durability for years to come. Opt for either our Linen Duvet Set or our Linen Sheet Set to get your loved ones slumbering in sheer comfort. Also comes in a variety of cool shades!
On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…..An all-natural, terpene-based candle from Sarendipity Candles
This woman-owned candle company has demonstrated that you can experience the relaxing, calming effects of a scented candle without the synthetic fragrances, harmful paraffin wax emissions, or dangerous lead wicks that come with traditional, store-bought candles. Their candles are made of 100% soy wax, pure cotton wicks, and are fragranced with terpenes- natural aromatherapy compounds extracted from nature. These are infused into their candles, providing a host of mental and physical benefits (you can read more about that here). Perhaps one of the most unique markers of these luxuriously scented candles are the hilarious, witty phrases printed on each one. A gift that provides the finest aromatherapy experience, along with a few good laughs. Buy one for a loved one and yourself, as for a limited time they are offering 15% off their entire collection!
