Experience our exclusive collaboration.

We teamed up with locally-loved herbal body care line BY TIDE to create an exclusive gift set just for our readers—inspired by the multi-sensory experience of winter on the Monterey Peninsula, with its crisp air and intoxicating aromas of eucalyptus trees and cedar-filled fireplaces. Featuring founder Leah Cabardo’s handcrafted Sanctuary scent—a restorative blend of eucalyptus leaf, red cedar, and peppermint—the Herbal Bar Soap and Body Scrub duo is the perfect winter companion. Blended with nourishing plant botanicals and rich oils, like wild California giant kelp and black Icelandic sand, the bar soap is a rejuvenating first step for hands and body. Follow it with the restorative herbal salt scrub made from a soothing combination of skin-loving ingredients, such as shea butter and rosehip seed oil, to moisturize and tone the skin. Plus, Big Sur Salts and French sea salt for gentle exfoliation. It’s the perfect seasonal ritual, ready-made for gifting or your own daily indulgences.
