Our annual gift guides aim to make your holiday shopping personal, thoughtful, and healthy; for your friends and family, and the planet. Our bitters make great gifts, and our stress and mood tonics take it to a new level, as you gift with intention this year.
A long time ago, Anne and I traveled to Ireland. We vagabonded slowly down the west coast from hostel to hostel, over green hills to ragged seaside cliffs, stopping at standing stones and the ruins of circle forts, visiting old-growth forests left intact for hundreds of years.
We created some DIY recipes, shared below, and paired them with a few of our favorite products. Gifting with intention has been our theme this year, and it seems especially important these days, as we live in such challenging times.
