This holiday season we’re excited to bring a touch of winter indoors with our exclusive, limited-edition New England Balsam holiday gift set. Consisting of (1) 12 oz. Natural Hand Soap and (1) 12 oz. Organic Hand Lotion, our exclusive seasonal collection is visually elegant with a pine scent that reminds us of holidays past.
Each bottle is hand-signed and numbered, with a timeless design created by Austin-based artist Katie Ramsey. The gloss varnish finish makes it easy to wipe free of smudges and spills. Meanwhile, the bold styling, including the black label and raised printing on the artwork, is unlike anything we’ve ever created before.
This limited-edition gift set is the result of a collaboration between like-minded artists, designers, and formulators who all have the same goal in mind: innovative and effective products that are eco-conscious in every detail. From the naturally-derived balsam scent to our transparent product labels, you always know what you’re getting with Puracy.
To help create our timeless Balsam Fir scent, we enlisted two trusted partners. Since 2002, Bayscience Formulators has helped companies like Puracy develop original, naturally-derived formulas in the home and personal care industry. Based in Dudley, Massachusetts, Bayscience formulates, manufactures, and packages a wide range of eco-friendly products, including everything from laundry detergent to jewelry cleaner. They’re a family-owned company just like Puracy, and both Bayscience and their wonderful staff have been a joy to work with over the years.
Based in Norwood, New Jersey, Phoenix Fragrances uses only the highest-quality raw materials and ingredients to provide superior essential oils and aromas for Puracy and clients across the United States. Our exclusive New England Balsam scent was created in part using ingredients sourced by Phoenix Frangrances’ growers and processors who share our commitment to sustainability.
It’s no coincidence we’ve enlisted two Northeast-based companies to help develop our signature holiday scent. Evergreen and intensely fragrant, the Balsam Fir is native to the area and a favorite choice for Christmas trees and other greenery throughout this part of the country.
Artist Katie Ramsey shares some of the holiday activities and memories that inspired the artwork for Puracy’s exclusive New England Balsam Gift Set:
I think I’ve always seen the holidays from a creative perspective. I remember as a young girl, our elementary school would take the students to attend the Nutcracker Ballet. I was mesmerized. The dancers were beautiful, of course, but I was always more fascinated by the elaborate costumes and props that created the magical scene.
Spending Christmas Eve with my family is something I look forward to all year long. I’m known for my homemade cards and gifts. There’s something about that personal touch that makes a gift truly memorable.
And no holiday season would be complete without a trip down Austin’s famous 37th Street for the tour of lights. Maybe it’s the artist in me, but I love how each display is unique - and far from traditional. You’re probably going to see something a little bit wacky or weird, but hey, that’s Austin!
