Bring Me A Dream 

Sleep when the baby sleeps. This soothing nervine and adaptogen blend calms the body, and quiets the mind, allowing you to follow this timeless advice for new moms. Non-sedating. No grogginess.

Chamomile: Helps ease any tension and achiness in the body that may be preventing sleep- think shoulder and back pain from a day of lifting, bouncing, feeding and carrying a little one.

Passionflower: Lulls overactive, anxious minds into slumber and helps improve overall sleep quality. No more wasting precious sleep time on the hamster wheel of overthinking.

California poppy: As a relaxant nervine, California Poppy helps you fall asleep quickly and makes shorter blocks of sleep more restorative.

Ashwagandha: Frequent night wakings disrupt the body’s circadian rhythms leaving many moms exhausted during the day but frustratingly wired at bedtime. Ashwagandha helps you get back on track so you’re alert during the day, and able to fall asleep at night.

Ingredients: Chamomile (Matricaria recutita), Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata), California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica), Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera). Other ingredients: Certified organic grape alcohol, water, raw honey

Suggested use: We recommend “pulse dosing” this formula. Take one dropper full every 20 minutes in the hour before bedtime.

 

Cloud Nine

Postpartum adjustment can be a roller coaster ride of emotions. This uplifting formula provides a gentle boost for the difficult days.

Mimosa bark and flower: Popular in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Mimosa is known as the “tree of collective happiness”. The whimsical pink flowers lift the spirits, while the bark offers a grounding anchor for stormy emotions.

Fresh Tulsi: This spicy-sweet aromatic adaptogen helps to lighten mood, boost mental clarity, and balance cortisol levels for improved stress response. To capture the intoxicating scent and taste, we always use the fresh plant.

Schisandra: These small and mighty berries offer important adaptogenic qualities that promote emotional steadiness and resilience- allowing you to be less reactive, and more responsive in times of stress.

Hawthorn leaf flower berries: Hawthorn is medicine for both the physical and emotional heart. In the emotional realm, it is often worked with during times of sadness and even deep grief. Rather than numbing feelings so one may soldier on, Hawthorn offers a comforting embrace while feelings pass through, leaving behind a sense of clarity and peace.

Rose: Rose is another classic remedy for opening the heart and balancing emotions. We infuse the beautifully scented petals into honey, as a sweet addition to the Cloud Nine formula.

Ingredients: Proprietary extract blend: Mimosa Bark and flower (Albizia julibrissin), Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum), Hawthorn leaf/flower/berry (Crataegus monogyna ), Schisandra berry (Schisandra chinensis), Rose (Rosa canina). Other ingredients: Certified organic grape alcohol, water, raw honey

Suggested use: Shake well. Take 1-2 droppers full as needed

 

Milky Way

This double-duty formula combines the milk boosting galactagogues with calming nervines to relax both mama and baby. Perfect for late afternoon and evening when milk supply is lower and baby is fussy

Alfalfa & Blessed thistle: These time honored herbs provide the base for our lactation formula. Each is an effective milk booster on its own, but together they offer even better results.

Shatavari: This root has a long history of use as a galactagogue in the centuries old Ayurvedic tradition. Modern studies show that it increases prolactin levels in nursing mothers.

Fennel & Chamomile: Soothing to the nervous system as well as the digestive tract. This combination is also a classic remedy for gassy, colicky babies, who get a small dose through mom’s milk.

Blue Vervain: Eases tension and tightness held in the shoulders- a common issue for nursing moms- and helps to encourage the letdown reflex.

Hops: There is merit to the old wives tale about the positive benefits of beer for breastfeeding moms! In part due to hops, which boosts milk supply, and induces a sense of relaxation by increasing levels of the neurotransmitter, GABA

Ingredients: Proprietary extract blend: Alfalfa (Medicago sativa), Blessed Thistle (Cnicus benedictus), Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus), Fennel seed (Foeniculum vulgare) Chamomile (Matricaria recutita), Blue Vervain (Verbena hastata), Hops (Humulus lupulus). Other ingredients: Certified organic grape alcohol, water, raw honey

Suggested Use: Shake well. Take 1-2 droppers full as needed

No Worries

This deeply soothing nervous system formula offers quick, grounding relief in anxious moments. May also be taken as a daily tonic for longer term support.

Milky oat: As a nervous and endocrine system restorative, fresh milky oat tops provide the ultimate nourishment when you’re edgy, frazzled and near burnout.

Skullcap: Another excellent nervous system restorative, skullcap is a perfect ally for times when you are overstimulated, touched out, and at the end of your rope.

Motherwort, or “mother’s herb”: Is said to impart a sense of courage and confidence in mothers, and ease feelings of overwhelm and self doubt. With an affinity for the heart, it is especially useful for those who experience heart palpitations in anxious moments.

Passionflower: This lush, climbing vine with striking purple flowers helps clear the mind of circular thinking and negative mental chatter, without being too sedating for daytime use.

Ingredients: Proprietary extract blend: Milky Oat (Avena sativa), Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora), Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca), Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata). Other ingredients: Certified organic grape alcohol, water, raw honey

Suggested use: Shake well. Take 1-2 droppers full as needed

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.
