Cold Spring, NY is located about an hour or so up the Hudson River from New York City. Friends from Brooklyn moved up there a couple of years ago, and after extended time in their CS apartment's second (!) kitchen mixing up natural body products, the Cold Spring Apothecary was born. The store, located right on Main Street, is steps away from the Cold Spring Metro North stop, opened a couple of months ago, and for their first summer in retail, the CSA has made a line of camping products that I was fortunate enough to use while out on the Appalachian Trail last weekend. Choose from Bug Spray, Campers Soap, Hiker's Tea, Citronella Candles and Juniper and Cypress Foot Powder. It's good stuff. I promise.
Campers Soap Ingredients: Aloe barbadensis (Organic Aloe Vera) Juice, Cocos nucifera (Organic Coconut) Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Olea europaea (Organic Olive) Oil, Vegetable Glycerin (Kosher), Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Citronella, Eucalyptus, Cedarwood, Lemongrass, Lavender, Litsea, Tea Tree, Patchouli, Catnip
