I recently came to a realization that I have a minor obsession with the California Hippie. I don’t think that this is an “official” name, but you all know the type: mystical herbalists Scott and Nitsa of Sun Potion, lifestyle guru and skincare brand founder Shiva Rose of the Local Rose, the groovy parents and chocolatiers Zen and Bunni of Zenbunni and, of course, the founder of Moon Juice Amanda Chantal Bacon – a woman who created a successful wellness brand and ended up the subject of an Internet bullying campaign. All of these folks are about as far from the “unwashed hippie” archetype as you can get. They are groovy and elegant, mystical and practical, spiritual and educated and they embrace high vibes and quality control with equal passion. Living Libations is the most quintessentially California Hippie brand I have ever come across (they even have a freestanding store in Venice – the epicenter of CH cool). The twist? They are Canadian.
