May Monthly Picks

Posted by Health Hut on

May is the month where we follow the flowers and turn our faces toward the sun, hello mineral SPF and sunnies. The days ahead are looking bright as we get ready to celebrate our lucky 13th anniversary on Saturday, May 25th with one of our (rare) SALES. Mark in on your cal, it's only one day. 

The good times start early as we wrap gifts for moms and anticipate the launch of Abel's newest scent, Laundry Day. While we're gushing about flowers and fragrance, Liis just launched their stunning violet forward scent In This World — and it's a big yes from the HH team. 

Join in all the fun this month and invite HH shop feels into your space with our new playlist curated by Tara, Health Hut founder.

Ready to see what's got the HH Team excited? Keep reading.
