1859 Magazine's Tidbits + To-dos featured the Empower BodyCare Luxe collection in their March-April 2023 issue.
The highlight features our blend of CBD oil derived from organically grown hemp and organic essential oils.
Our soaking salts, which stand out as an industry leader among the best CBD bath salts on the market, have Epsom and Pink Himalayan salts as well as our ethically sourced, known for their anti-inflammatory properties, high quality carrier oils, like organic jojoba oil and non-GMO grapeseed oil, and essential oils that are known for their therapeutic potential.
The piece also speaks to Empower's owner, Trista Okel of Portland, and how she got her start in 2004 by helping her mother manage pain. In 2013, Trista founded Oregon's first LGBTQ+ woman-owned CBD company, Empower.
Tidbits + To-dos also featured Underwood Winery, whose Rosé's label's art work was created by LGBTQ+ artist Lisa Congdon of Portland. Proceeds from the sale of the Rosé go to The Venture Out Project.
