- Gift Wrapping for the Mini Sample Gift Package, $48
INSIGHT — It’s been only a few days short of a year since the last posting. It’s not that we haven’t had much to talk about, just the opposite. We’ve been excited to share our new products, stockists and overall growth and development since starting just over a year ago, just haven’t had the opportunity to put it into words and formerly give our thanks for the support over this past year. Our growing team is eager to share our new product developments with you and continue to provide the products that many of you have shared with us to be your favorite. Thank you to our faithful restockers, the inquisitive seekers, the storytellers who helped spread the word and to the stores who’ve helped present the line where we could not, in your own special ways.
At Prospector Co. our new season will be forever start in Autumn and for this one we’re bringing in some gift sets to help make your shopping list a little easier. We’ve consolidated our line into groupings that have been specially packaged and wrapped, taking in the details of handwritten notes and original old photographs. The full-size groupings are discounted from their regular price and the Mini Sample Package (shown above) is a whole new set for us. These little minis are just like the full-sizes, only smaller. New sets will release periodically and we encourage you to take a look if you’re still thinking about what to get that special someone.
Prospector Co. Gift Sets. Available in multiple varieties.

- Artemisia absinthium LINN.
LEGEND — When Degas depicted the beautiful blend of sadness and boredom in Ellen Andrée’s mindless gaze for his painting L’Absinthe, the mysterious plant composite had reached its height of hallucinogenic success. The little green filled goblet sitting in front of the actress was her poison of choice, like many Parisian bohemians of that time. Even though the drink wreaked havoc on its drinkers, it has built up a steady stream of modern day liquor drink copycats, profiting from its fantastical history.
According to the Ancients, Wormwood counteracted the effects of poisoning by hemlock, toadstools and the biting of the seadragon. The plant was of some importance among the Mexicans, who celebrated their great festival of the Goddess of Salt by a ceremonial dance of women, who wore on their heads garlands of Wormwood.
Prospector Co. Wormwood Absinthium Cream. Available in 8 oz. and 1 oz. bottles.
