Aromatherapy Candles and Bath Salts are here!

For years I have loved the all natural bath and cosmetic products of Tess & James, and I am thrilled to have been able to work with them in order to create our new aromatherapy soy candles and mineral bath soak. I just picked up our first batch of candles and salts yesterday and they smell amazing!Aromatherapy Candles

Angela Basile and Jess Van Wormer started Tess & James in 2014, and it has grown slowly into what it is today — artisanal style, all natural products, bath and cosmetic goodies, dry goods and sundries– all made in small batches from a home studio in Rhinebeck, NY.

Their products are available at many locations locally (my favorite being Paper Trail), and if you are in NYC you can find their collection at the Freehand Hotel.

Our Sleep candle is infused with soothing lavender and rosemary essential oils. The perfect companion for relaxing with a good book before bed or taking a long, soothing bubble bath. Lemon and Peppermint infused Rise will brighten your mood and your morning 🙂 Relax Aromatherapy Mineral Soak is infused with lavender essential oils and contains Magnesium Sulfate, Mediterranean Sea Salt, Himalayan Salt, Dendritic Salt, Rose Petal Powder, Lavender Essential Oil. This blend promotes relaxation while soothing tired and aching muscles.

I hope you’ll love them as much as I do!




Our “Back-to-School” sale is here!

It’s time for our annual “Back-to-School” sale. Now through September 15th the code GOGIRLS will take 15% off any order + we will donate 15% of proceeds to a project that funds education for girls. This is a great time time to stock up on your favorite pajama sets!


Last year proceeds went to a project financing higher education for women and girls in Nepal who are survivors of human trafficking. If you would like to learn more about that project and see updates the GlobalGiving page is here.

Two years ago ago proceeds went to help fund an initiative by the Women’s Global Empowerment Fund in Northern Uganda that provides literacy classes for women. Since 2008 the WGEF has helped 750 women learn to read, and this program plays an integral role for women recovering and rebuilding their lives in a post conflict region.

Our Back-to-School sale is always our biggest sale of the year, so thank you for every order you have placed in the past and any you might place this year. I hope you enjoy your new pajamas!

If you are planning on buying a cashmere robe this year make sure to enter code GOGIRLS and save 20% for yourself as well! Our cashmere robes are available in 5 new colors, and are made of 100% Scottish Cashmere yarns.
