 All ALTER locations are smelling really good these days, thanks to the restock of Juniper Ridge. These products are "wildcrafted" from fresh found plants, trees and flowers from the mountains and deserts of the west, such as: sage, bay laurel, ginger and Douglas fir. These scents are fresh, clean and all non-toxic.
10% of all profits are donated back to wildlife preservation.

 Juniper Ridge 2oz Room Sprays. Available in Red Rock Canyon, Big Sur and Steep Ravine scents.

BIG SUR: Wild ginger, burnt honey, salt, damp ground.
