Company Overview

Juniper Ridge

Juniper Ridge Website
We are a wilderness fragrance manufacturing company. Over the last 20 years, Juniper Ridge has grown into a classic west coast home and body care brand with the goal to share the restorative fragrances of the plants and trees encountered backpacking and hiking throughout the western United States through its products. We formulate our products from wild-harvested and sustainably sourced native plants and use our own essential oils to create a range of aromatic products, including colognes, soaps, essential oils, and incense.

Today, Juniper Ridge is a women-led, independent company based on the O2 Artists Aggregate, a sustainable eco-industrial lot, in Oakland, California. From this home base, our brand’s diverse, committed team formulates, manufactures, and ships its home and body care offerings around the world.

Juniper Ridge Wilderness Defense Program: Every year, through our Wilderness Defense Program, we donate 10% of our sales to organizations that fight to keep the wilderness wild.
