A passion for nature cuts to the heart of what Scandinavians call friluftsliv (pronounced free-loofts-liv). The expression literally translates as ‘open-air living’.
No matter what the season or the weather, getting outside is a priority for Scandinavians. Our Maker/Founder, Courtney Feider and her family share the same priority. This gift is modeled on the items she packs anytime her family heads out for a day hike, a camping trip, a backpacking adventure, or a road trip where being on the water, on bikes, running, or hiking is in the plan. This kit is also ideal for nordic and downhill skiing, paddleboarding, and all competitive athletes training for an event.
None of the items have SPF but all create a natural barrier with beeswax, shea butter, clay, and essential oils. If you have fair or sensitive skin, please pair these items with your SPF protocol.
An ideal gift for:
- Athletes in training for a big event
- Outdoors-person for a birthday, anniversary or celebration
- Thank you gift for someone who loves the outdoors
- A 'getting started' kit for anyone just starting to spend lots of time outdoors
- Recovery from an athletic injury
More about the products:
LAGA (2 oz) is our first and most evergreen product, the most nourishing and supportive all-purpose salve/balm you've ever used. Ideal to prevent windburn, chafe, chapped lips, and to soothe hands and feet on long hikes or camping trips. Great when you've spent a lot of time barefoot on the sand. By far our most consistently popular product.
KLAR (2 oz) is an aromatherapeutic liquid clay that will soothe your skin and halt blemishes and reduce excess oil while also lifting and balancing your mood. Can be worn daily all day. This is the most unique product we make because it combines the power of a thick clay mask, toner, relaxing essential oils, and acne-fighting / oil-balancing. After a long day outside adventuring (or even when camping or backpacking) this can be quickly applied to face for relaxation and can take the place of full-face routines temporarily, controlling oil buildup and protecting skin.
SJÖ (6 oz) is a moisturizing body scrub made with lake and sea minerals, sugar, sea salt, and natural oils letting you exfoliate, nourish and moisturize your skin in one step. It's ideal for refreshing tired feet and legs after long adventures because the sugar/salt/sea-mineral combination stimulates blood flow and helps circulation to prevent lactic acid build-up. It also just smells and feels really good.
WILDLANDS MIX from CITY PEANUT is Maker/Founder Courtney Feider's favorite savory, spicy, sweet blend from City Peanut Shop in Boise, Idaho. A blend of almonds, pecans and cashews with a delicate sweet, savory and herbal flavor, this mix is addictive and perfect after a long day in the great outdoors or as a snack on the trail.
