Juniperseed Mercantile

Down To Earth Decadence

Who They Are

Juniperseed Mercantile founder, Tiffany, started her company by selling her handmade products out of a picnic basket. Her organic hand towels, facial rounds and lip balms were all inspired by her inability to find low-priced, environmentally conscious options at her local retail stores. With a strong science background, Tiffany began making her own earth-friendly lotions and soaps. These “picnic basket” creations became so popular that she named her company Picnic Basket Crafts, selling to neighbors, friends, and family.

It was when Tiffany teamed up with her mom, Joan, that they changed the name to Juniperseed Mercantile. Together, they began crafting a large inventory of products from lotions and soaps to gentle household cleaning supplies. Tiffany and Joan continued the family tradition of earth-friendly living, passed down from Tiffany’s Oma (Joan’s mother). In 2018, Tiffany decided to hire a staff that would help her to open her first brick and mortar store where all Juniperseed Mercantile products are still made by hand today.

After being on the market for only a couple of years, Juniperseed Mercantile has already achieved what they originally set out to do, create quality self-care products for their customers while making a difference for the environment.

Why We Like Them

Juniperseed Mercantile takes great pride in the deep rooted eco-conscious living traditions that they were founded on. Handmade in Littleton, Colorado, all of their products are made from organic ingredients when possible and packaged in glass bottles, aluminium tins or compostable tubes to reduce plastic waste.

Created without sacrificing quality or efficacy, Juniperseed Mercantile’s small batch products are something you can feel good about using. On top of producing earth-friendly products, Juniperseed Mercantile also places a deep emphasis on supporting education, community and resurrecting lost skills by offering educational workshops at their store in Littleton. They even offer refills at the store, and encourage the reuse of all of their bottles when possible.

While many of their products offered are organic and vegan, Juniperseed Mercantile places a heavy emphasis on the fact that all of their products are completely free of palm oils. After the Australian wildfires, they implemented the reformulation of their products to avoid the use of palm oil. They continue to support the rainforests by donating to restoration funds periodically.
