According to the UN’s official website, the theme for 2020’s International Forest Day on March 21st is ‘Forests and Biodiversity.’ Everything we do whether it is what we wear, write, read or eat is all connected to this biologically-diverse ecosystem which is vital for us to sustain.
Therefore let’s show our concern and love for forests by gifting ourselves products from sustainable brands which in every ‘sense’ celebrate our wonderful forests!

The deep mix of wild boysenberry, raspberry, strawberry with violet and vanilla are so delightfully fragrant that it also affects your taste buds! If not the berries experience the aroma of the woody pine forests with the Mountain Pine Wine Bottle Candle.
