Scout & Cellar Clean-Crafted Wines
Aspen local Paula Godfrey Eaton is a top seller of Scout & Cellar not only because the company becomes like family to all of their sellers, but also because their clean-crafted wines are chosen from small family run vineyards and they are synthetic free, pesticide free and chemical additive free. The perfect gift for our hard working teachers, healthcare workers, package deliverers, post office employees, and everybody and anybody who deserves to enjoy a delicious bottle of wine or two without the morning headache. The perfect holiday gift.
Sopris Health & Wellness
Sometimes, life is easier when we have a little help. Through ups and downs, there’s one thing that will always make you feel better: balance.
In Western medicine, we’re used to treating symptoms. Pharmaceuticals are designed to offset your pains and woes by giving you a dose of something that creates the complete opposite effect. (In pain? Numb it. Stressed? Here’s a downer. Depressed, take an upper. Etc.)
Herbal medicine, on the other hand, helps the body find balance so it can do what it does best: heal itself.
Botanical Tinctures combined with full-spectrum CBD
Our CBD + Botanical Blend tinctures represent the most effective CBD options in the marketplace. In this expertly crafted product line, Sopris Health & Wellness targets certain ailments by combining the incredible power of a full-spectrum CBD extract with traditional botanical extracts.
Instead of treating symptoms, CBD works on the underlying cause by bringing your body back into balance. Shop the CBD + Botanicals Sampler Pack
