AAPI Heritage Month
Exclusive AAPI Heritage Month Products
We’ve partnered with local businesses Magpie Alchemy and Midtown Clothing to create exclusive AAPI Heritage Month inspired products. All proceeds will go to directly to our small business partners.
Celebrate AAPI Shower Melt: Created to help alleviate congestion naturally. It’s a tool you can use to help you breathe deeply and reconnect with your body. We’re highlighting this product during AAPIHM because it’s gifted to members of the AAPI community more than any other product. It’s really beautiful seeing those in the AAPI Community care for each other in this way.
Celebrate AAPI Breath Balm: Vapor rub is often our first introduction to plant medicine. Our love of mentholated vapor rub is like a thread that ties all of the AAPI community together, so what better way to celebrate AAPIHM than creating a natural, plant-based vapor rub, packed with herbs and botanicals to help soothe you.
AAPI Heritage Month “Sacramento” T-shirt
This t-shirt design was inspired by the AAPI diversity within the Sacramento region. We placed elements from AAPI cultures around the Sacramento logo to highlight the broad spectrum of cultures that can be found our community. The design incorporates lotus/lily flowers, a mandala, cherry blossoms, lub plawv (heart symbol found in Hmong textile art), and Mugunghwa flower to represent Sacramento’s strong AAPI culture.
