    Friends of the Coastal Chaparral

    Our namesake plant - Artemisia Californica (also known as California Sagebrush) - is a dominant species within coastal chaparral communities, which are under pressure from climate change and urbanization.

    Coastal chaparral are found in Mediterranean climates - characterized by mild, wet winters and hot, dry summers with fog. Our coastline is prized for this reason and (as a result) highly vulnerable to urban, recreational, and agricultural development. Today, only 15% of original habitat is intact. A 2017 assessment found that only 6% of our coastal chaparral (743 square miles) lies within protected areas.

    Due to climate change, we have seen extended seasons of drought and increased fire danger. In many chaparral regions such as the Santa Monica Mountains, chaparral plant communities can be eliminated by frequent fires. This year, we have seen unprecedented rainfall; this may introduce new challenges as an overabundance of spring growth becomes fuel for fires in the hot summer months ahead.

    Our hope and vision is to find market-driven pathways to support and protect these wild plant communities so that generations to come can continue to enjoy these ecosystems. 

    Sustainable Product and Packaging

    We believe in conserving our resources and using only what we need. This value is core to our brand identity and informs our decisions from product formulation and packaging (minimalist, purist, multifunctional). 

    • We make sure to collect our ingredients only from trusted suppliers that provide transparency and traceability. 
    • Our bottles are made of glass with threaded necks so they can be reused over and over. We’d love it if you refilled your bottles with our oils and mists, but we’re just happy for you to reuse them. 
    • We’re working with what we call “The One Box Rule” - which is what we ask of ourselves. It’s the least we can do to conserve and protect what matters. Every product piece will use no more than one box. If that means no pretty box on-shelf? So be it. 

    We try to avoid product accessories where possible. We ask customers to consider just using a reducer to dispense product instead of using a sprayer.

    FAQ's

    From ingredients to shipping, and everything in between.

    Does this have CBD or THC?

    No, our products contain no cannabis or related isolates in any form*. This product was created as an alternative to CBD. Many of our friends and family seek pain relief, but are not able to deal with the issues associated with cannabis (and/or hemp). We are happy that Californica's CALM treatment oil offers "issue-free" pain relief. That is why we made it. And that is why Californica products will always be CBD-free.

    *According to Medical News Today, there are three types of CBD:

    • Full-spectrum: Includes all parts of the cannabis plant. Full-spectrum products contain less than <0.3% THC.
    • Broad-spectrum: This contains most of the cannabis plant compounds. Unlike full-spectrum, broad-spectrum products contain trace amounts of THC.
    • Isolates: Only contain CBD, with no other cannabinoids or THC. Products that contain CBD-isolates may not produce any notable psychoactive effects.

    What ingredient(s) address pain?

    Our formulations thoughtfully include potent botanicals that work together in concert to provide multiple benefits. The key pain relieving aspect of our body oil is derived from A. californica, which grows wild in Southern California. A.californica has been used by Native American Indians for millenia to address various ailments including: sore throat, menstrual discomfort, back aches, arthritis, muscular strains, bruises, contusions, bone fractures.

    How does it work?

    A. californica contains powerful plant compounds called monoterpenes that relieve pain. Monoterpenes with known pain relieving activity in A. californica include camphor, eucalyptol, camphene, beta-pinene, borneol and thujone. The monoterpenes found in A. californica dampen the sensation of pain by inhibiting certain pain receptors located in the skin. These monoterpenes easily break the pain cycle in the skin and provide relief where needed. The monoterpenes are rapidly cleared from the skin with little toxicity since they are only present in small amounts.

      AMAZING!!

      This is a miracle oil. I'm so happy I found you at the Newport Beach pier. My son was the one who stole all you black berries...

      I've had my share of skin issues in my hands. Doctors constantly guessed what yo use. Nothing worked!! I found Calm and it's been amazing. It's repaired my skin on my hands, which is a first out of anything I've ever used. Not only myself but my family has noticed the big change in appearance. It got to the point that I would be embarrassed to show my hands or have to make contact with anyone just cause the way my hands looked. Now that's changed. THANK YOU!!!

      Yes, I remember your beautiful family! So humbled and grateful to hear your skin responded to the goodness of CALM’s phyto-compounds. It goes to show our bodies respond best to pure naturals.

      Keep living the good life — sleep / rest, drink water, eat whole foods, and love on people — to keep the skin healthy and strong.

      P.S. Your little guy adored the blackberries (they were perfectly in season) — it was my greatest pleasure to gift them to him!

      The best ever for pain relief!

      I play music at the farmers market where I received this amazingly wonderful herb that helps with pain. I had a injury deep in my hip because I was trying to push a bale of hay to the side of the house. Needless to say, I was over optimistic with my strength versus that heavy bale of hay. The herb calm by californica really has helped me to get through some strengthening and stretching exercises. It also has helped when I just need to get things done and not have to deal with the pain. I realized it's important to be in touch with us injuries so we don't over exert but this is a great balance to get through the healing process. I highly recommend it and you will be 100% satisfied!

      Tension Relief Oil

      I absolutely love the fragrance and the relief this product provides. The assistance I received from the lady in selecting the right option for my needs was incredibly helpful. After being in a car accident, I was in dire need of relief, and Calm Tension Relief has been nothing short of wonderful.

      I’m SHOCKED how fast it calms my neck pain.

      tried CALM on my palms and back of my neck. Was not expecting it to calm the muscles so fast, exactly as the owner described. I love that it is extracted from the native plants that only grow in California, feeling connected and a sense of serenity. I don’t use essential oils usually, this one smells incredible and not intrusive.
