The Story

Spend a night sleeping under the stars in the Mojave Desert or Eastern Sierra and you may wake up with frost on your sleeping bag, the air crisp and cold. But as the sun crests the horizon and falls on the red bark and small, deep green leaves of the surrounding junipers and cedars, the air is perfumed with a sharp and sweet scent. Redolent of warm leather and desert varnish–a sun baked mixture of resin, minerals, and clay–this fragrance is at the heart of our love song to this arid landscape: Desert Cedar essential oil.

A blend of sustainably and wild harvested conifers from the deserts of eastern and southern California. All ingredients are collected by us and steam distilled in our Oakland workshop.

Size: 5 ml

Usage: Our essential oils can be used in all types of diffusers. Use a few drops in your bath or shower. Our pure plant essential oils can be added to unscented lotions or cosmetics, or mix a few drops with organic almond or jojoba oil for an all natural fragrance and moisturizer.

Thick resin, dusty leather, sun baked wood

handcrafted and curated right here in Upstate NY

All of our leather goods are handmade by The Local Branch out of our Upstate NY homestead workshop, which is just 7 miles from our brick + mortar shop in the charming Finger Lakes village of Skaneateles NY.

We started our leather working journey as transplants to Northern CA from Upstate NY in our early twenties. It was 2009, and hunting for a creative job seemed near impossible during the recession - so we started our own thing, and called it The Local Branch. With very little resources at first, we dabbled in leather working using scrap pieces of hides and a found-on-the-side-of-the-road sewing machine. The very first piece Blaine created was a leather holster, made for his phone and wallet. From there our leather working journey began.

At the same time we began printing apparel with a focus on nature, travel and American history. We stretched our own screens, painting each design by hand and lovingly printed every piece ourselves - a process which is very true to form today. We source all of our blank apparel items in the USA, which has always been our beacon for our brand.

We eventually decided to take this hobby brand into our full time venture. We renovated an Airstream trailer and turned it into our mobile workshop, touring America full time for over two years. We sold our goods at festivals, craft shows and online, as well as wholesale to many shops throughout the USA, Canada and Japan. After landing some of our goods in a few major retailers, we decided to slow down and keep the ethos and vision for the brand to small, local and handcrafted.

Still today Blaine and Mackenzie steer the ship - keeping everything small + handcrafted.
