With Christmas fast approaching and shopping days running short, it’s time once again to do a local holiday gift guide, presenting a variety of locally-made products and local stores and shops to hopefully give you a number of ideas for your shopping needs.
DANI Naturals is 100% local to Bend and they make a variety of personal care and home products, including lotions, bath bars, candles, shampoos and conditioners, shower gels, and more, with a strong focus on natural, organic ingredients. Their philosophy states:
Daily doses of natural wonder are part of everyday life from our base in Bend Oregon. Snow-capped peaks at every angle, the serenity of flowing water and sunshine that barely breaks… Mother Nature never fails to inspire! This inspiration is the driving force behind the crux of DANI products. What you will find are 100% vegetable oil bases, pure soy waxes, essential oils and organic ingredients. What you won’t find is petroleum, paraben, artificial colors, dyes, animal by-products, or sodium or ammonia laurel/laureth sulfates.
My wife can attest to their lotion, it’s a high-quality natural moisturizing base that is quite easy on the skin. And yes, men can use it too!
They have other products as well that you can shop for online, as well as in town at the following locations: Anjou Spa, CE Lovejoy’s, Jinsei Spa, Newport Avenue Market, and Paper Jazz.
Oh, and you have to love any company that shows you how to repurpose their candles to reclaim the glass tumbler for things like whiskey!
