Though there are plenty of occasions throughout the year to gift the ones we love — holidays, birthdays, anniversaries — the most memorable gifts are often the ones we receive when we least expect them.
Receiving a small token of gratitude that says, 'I see you, and I appreciate you', can be incredibly meaningful, encouraging, and delightful for those who are working so hard right now to shine their light so that the rest of us can navigate through this unknown terrain with a little more clarity and ease.
Whether it’s the staff at our local grocery stores, the medical professionals and other essential services who are putting themselves at risk for our sake, someone online who is keeping it positive and sharing great solutions to the challenges that so many of us are facing, or a friend or family member who has taken on the extra load of caring for someone we love on our behalf — these are our heroes.
This month Woodlot will send out five gift sets per week to individuals who have gone above and beyond to be of service to their community, family, and friends. We’ll be counting on your nominations — and so far, we’ve had such an overwhelming response to this initiative, that we’ve decided to make it 10 for our first week! Thank you to everyone who has already submitted nominations. It's beautiful to see so many of you thinking of each other.
Each of the chosen recipients will be receiving a customized ‘Hero Gift Set’ that includes the three wellness essentials listed below. We hope that these items will provide a few moments of calm, a chance to reset, and an opportunity for self care for those who are working so hard to keep the rest of us safe, comfortable, and at peace.
Introducing Woodlot's Hero Gift Set...
‘Into the Woods’
Give your hero the gift of an escape ‘into the woods’ with our Cascadia Candle. A blend of fir, cedar, and patchouli provides the perfect cue to check out of a long day, allowing your hero to relax and revitalize as they drift deep into the Pacific Northwest.
‘Bloom + Inspire’
Calming lavender, refreshing bergamot, and zesty witch hazel make our Flora Everyday Mist the ultimate burst of fresh air. While your hero’s strength and perseverance may seem endless, everyone needs a quick moment to reflect, reset, and start anew.
‘Wake Up Like This’
If you think your hero just wakes up that amazing — you’re probably right! But even still, a stimulating blend of healing peppermint and renewing rosemary gives your hero the opportunity to care for themselves the way they so readily care for others. By waking up with our Recharge Essential Oil Blend, they'll no longer be starting the day with an empty cup.
You can nominate a local hero by filling out this form. You’ll receive confirmation with 24 hours if your nominee is selected and winners will be announced weekly on Instagram!
There’s nothing more rewarding than having our products shared among those who want to wish each other well, show love, and give thanks. Thank you, to all of you, for being a part of this community. We see you, and we appreciate you.
With love + light,
