For the hard-workin’, green thumbin’, and hand-craftin’
Tired joints from a day’s work? Mystery bruises and wayward scratches after tending the garden? Harvest Hands has got you covered. Our spin on a classic herbal healing salve with skin-nourishing herbs like calendula, plantain, comfrey, and yarrow blended with our 100% farm direct organic hemp extract, Harvest Hands is the perfect pairing for the hard-working humans in our lives. Protective to the skin, soothing to tired joints and muscles, and healing to mild scrapes, bumps, and bruises of all kinds. Despite the title, we love using this topical wherever some healing support is needed.
For the body-mind wellness warriors
Give the gift of luxurious self-care with our Be True CBD Body Oil. A heavenly blend of rich oils slow infused with organic herbs and finished with our organic full spectrum hemp extract and therapeutic grade essential oils. This divine potion is excellent for self-massage and body oiling practices, bath and spa experiences, partner massage, and as a non-comedogenic face serum. Drop into full spectrum relaxation and know that you’re supporting a good cause, too! 10% of proceeds are donated to local nonprofit, Vermont Be True. Pair it with our Fresh Face Botanical Toner for an ultimate skincare pairing!
For the stressed out and sleep deprived (hey, no shame)
Let’s face it, we could all use a little help when it comes to the stress and sleep department. Support your loved ones with our 100% farm direct, certified organic CBD Oils. Available in 600mg and 1200mg potencies, our CBD is carefully blended with organic cold-pressed hemp seed oil sourced from American farms and is bursting with supportive elements including cannabinoids, terpenes, essential fatty acids, and more! No synthetic flavorings, just pure hempy goodness to soothe and support.
Not sure if your loved ones are keen on CBD? The good news is there’s many other herbs to try! Many of our farm-direct tinctures are also balancing to the nervous system and promote restful sleep. Some of our favorites include ashwagandha, California poppy, and
. All CBD and herbal tinctures come in convenient 1 oz bottles so they can come along wherever you mind need them.
For the slope shredders & athletes
Calling all powder hounds, movers, and shakers! Soothe and restore achy, overused muscles and joints with our best-selling Betty’s Balm. Featuring a warming blend of cayenne and ginger mixed with arnica, St. John’s Wort and full spectrum hemp extract, this is a must for anyone who wants to keep moving and
grooving. Plus, we love having it on hand to promote circulation to cold fingers and toes when out on the slopes or snow-shoeing through the woods during the coldest winter days. Comes in a convenient 2 oz tin for on the go!
For the tea aficionado
Who doesn’t love a warm cup of tea during the chilly months of fall and winter? To us, nothing says comfort more than curling up next to the wood stove with a good book and a mug of our favorite herbal brews. We love sipping on our Spiced Tulsi Rose for an herbal chai, or our Twilight for promoting a relaxing evening. All of our teas feature our farm direct herbs and are packaged in fully compostable bags, too! Have someone in your life that REALLY loves tea? Why not give the gift of Hillside’s Monthly Sips Club subscription?! Save 10%, enjoy free shipping, and get Hillside Botanicals tea automatically delivered to their doorstep every month forever (or until they have enough tea, whichever comes first).
