The Juniper Ridge Smudge Mini Variety Pack with Sage, Mugwort, and Siskiyou Cedar is perfect for bringing a taste of the outdoors into your home. Juniper Ridge shares, “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.” This is an overall great home fragrance and will bring a little bit of wilderness into your home.

If you’re a fan of the great outdoors, we bet you’ll enjoy having beautiful prints like this one by Ansel Adams hanging on your walls. This is a print of Ansel Adam’s photography ‘The Tetons and the Snake River’, capturing the natural beauty of Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.
