It’s fire season, and there’s no doubt that this is one of our craziest years yet. More acreage has burned than ever before, and it seems as if our entire state is being affected in one way or another. We may seem powerless when it comes to protecting ourselves, loved ones, and essential workers from the detriment of the fires, but there are indeed ways to become involved in the fight.
Firefighters are beyond busy fighting off the flames in these fires, and could definitely use some easy-to-eat meals and water. I recommend buying some cases of water and non-perishable food that doesn’t require much prep and then paying a visit to your local station to drop off the donations.
Many animals have been displaced from their homes as a result of the fires. There are many organizations that are working to rescue the wildlife that has lost their homes. The Human Society of Ventura County is open to taking donations via their Amazon Wishlist or via their site directly.
With these fires being such a regular occurrence, it is completely justifiable to invest in air purifiers for your home if your budget allows. Costco has a great variety of both high and low options.
To ensure that your family is prepared in case a fire breaks out near your home, stock your pantry with the proper essentials. Have each member of your household prepare a bag in case of an emergency that includes non-perishable goods, a change of clothing, water, and their personal documents. There's no use in being fearful, but it is always a good idea to remain cautious and prepared.

This conversation is something that more and more people are talking about on the daily - practicing self care is practicing sustainability. And while it might seem obscure, hear me out: Paying attention to your mind and body is the best way to ensure longevity.
Our newest limited edition, the Garden Party Soap, is a summer and audience inspired tale! I not only set out to create a scent reminiscent of warm evening cocktails enjoyed in the yard - but I also tapped my social media & newsletter followers to help me design this lovely creation. The result: a delightfully fresh & uplifting soap that reminds me of the sparkling evening light in a verdant garden.
