As Slow North turns eight, I can't help but look back at this company (that's forever changed my life); it began as a dream with a single idea in our kitchen. Slow North’s journey over the past eight years is a story of humble beginnings, growth, passion, and the relentless pursuit of natural living. As we celebrate our 8th anniversary, I want to share with you my top 8 picks that have not only been personal favorites but also define Slow North's essence.
1. Lavender & Cedar Candle: Infused with calming lavender and cedarwood essential oils, this candle is my go-to for unwinding at the end of a long day. The woody, sweet aroma transports me to tranquil moments, reflecting our commitment to all-natural ingredients.
2. Canyon Springs Neck Wrap: Versatile and comforting, this neck wrap can be used both hot and cold. For me, it's a personal remedy for lower backaches and cramps. Its beautiful, botanical design is an embodiment of our love for the natural world, sustainability and holistic approaches to living well.
4. Lucid Dreams Natural Bar Soap: An ultimate escape to use, this natural soap offers a luxurious lather and complex warm citrus aroma. Our dedication to quality ingredients and natural everyday self-care will make your skin smell and feel like a dream. It's always in my soap dish.
5. Afterglow Bath Salts: A perfect blend of calming jasmine and grounding sandalwood. For me, these bath salts are a ritual to wash away the stress of the day and reconnect with a quiet mind before bed, echoing our philosophy of holistic wellness.
6. Canyon Springs Wristlet Keychain: Practical and pretty, this wristlet keychain is more than an accessory; it's a lifestyle companion. Its vibrant design and usefulness exemplify our approach to integrating function and sustainability into daily life. You won't see me on a neighborhood walk without mine!
7. Rosemary & Lemon Candle: This OG scent has a sweet, rejuvenating blend of rosemary and lemon essential oils. From our early days till now, it continues to be a beloved choice, symbolizing the timeless appeal of all-natural essential oil scents. Loved it then, love it now.
8. Pom Blossom Travel Pouch: The careful design of this travel pouch turns packing into something special. Its charming look and practical use show our commitment to quality and style. I use mine for holding makeup, storing essentials in my van's console, and keeping pens and AirPods organized in my backpack.
From the original non toxic candle scents I crafted in our kitchen to the newest collections, these top picks represent the heart and soul of Slow North. Through ups and downs, pivots, and persistence, our mission is still strong.
As we celebrate 8 wonderful years at Slow North, it's incredible to reflect on how a small idea blossomed into a haven for natural living. These favorite picks represent a journey of passion, innovation, and a commitment to providing natural alternatives. Through the highs and lows, the original scents and new creations, we've thrived on the belief that small changes can shape our future.
Whether you're new to our world or have been with us from the beginning, we thank you for your support and look forward to growing together in the years to come.
With gratitude, Michelle Simmons
