Nine products you need to get excited for the upcoming camping season

Who doesn’t love a great weekend camping trip? Or maybe you prefer to go for longer periods of time. Some people like to spend time in their cozy cabins while others prefer tenting. Whatever your camping preference we love it and we know you do too!

Sitting around a campfire roasting marshmallows with some of our best friends is always a good time. And the best part is, camping season is just around the corner.  It is upon us and what better way to get excited for camp than to smell like it?

That might sound strange, however, it smells great, and that’s the important thing right?! Purple Urchin has all the best campy scents and products your adventurous self could ever desire.

1) Kindling (candle and bar soap)

The name says it all. If you love the smell a campfire leaves behind this is the perfect scent for you. The best part is we have this scent in a candle too. If you’re really craving a campfire but are trapped in the city, it’s the next best thing!

2) Cedarific (bar soap)

Cedarific bar soap scent is so delicious you’ll forget it smells like a tree. This bar of soap is made with cedarwood, orange, and musk.  It’s perfect for both men and women and is sure to get you amped up for the outdoors.

3) Lumberjack (bar soap, liquid soap, hand balm, stache styler, beard & face oil, and shave bar)

Originally created for our men’s line, our Lumberjack scent smells how we assume a Lumberjack would smell, which is great by the way! With cedarwood, balsam fir, bergamot, and just a hint of vanilla, we’ve been told this scent smells like a warm sunny forest or a sauna, you’re choice!

4) Black Pepper & Birch sore muscle rub

Muscles get sore, especially when you’ve been chopping wood out at camp all day. The best way to combat sore muscles naturally is our tingling Black Pepper & Birch rub. This rub smells minty and is very soothing.

5) Firry Pine (bar soap)

If the cedar scent isn’t cutting it for you then try out our Firry Pine scent. With a woodsy spicy scent, one sniff of this bar soap and you’ll be immediately transported deep into the Canadian woods.

6) Sweetgrass (bar soap)

This soap smells sweet but in a natural woodsy way! If you’re not into the super musky smells, and prefer something a little more sweet, this is the campy scent for you!

7) Maple Walnut (lip butter)

Everyone gets chapped lips now and again, more so if you spend a lot of time outdoors in the sun. So make sure you’re prepared for all of your camping adventures this summer with our Maple Walnut lip butter. With beeswax and cocoa butter, this lip butter is very moisturizing without feeling heavy or goopy, and the scent is so delicious you’ll want to eat it!

8) Winter Hand Balm

Despite the word “winter” being in the name, this hand and body balm is great year round. Perfect for even the worst patches of dry skin, this balm soothes and restores skin back to normal.

9) Hemp Head / Head Case (Shampoo Bar)

If you’re looking for an all-natural, biodegradable shampoo, this is your answer. This shampoo bar is far better for the environment than the regular chemical filled bottles of shampoo, and will keep you looking good for all those lumberjack’s and lumberjill’s you might run into!

Start pulling out all of your camping gear because warm nights under the stars are just around the corner. And with some campy PU products, you’re more than ready!
