CLEAR LIGHT is a maker of lifestyle essentials from the desert southwest. The Clear Light Urban Farm Store is celebrating its 49th anniversary and is debuting their brand redesign. Clear Light describes the perfect state of mental bliss and complete happiness. The products are certified NEW MEXICO TRUE because they’re 100% made in New Mexico. Founded in 1971, it is an eco-friendly Urban Farm Store with artisanal products which are 100% Natural, Organic, and Wildcrafted.
The ingredients are sourced from native plants and wildharvested or grown on their farm with the existing wildscape. They use traditional processes like distillation, tincturing, infusion, and enfleurage from harvest to end product. The artisanal products have ingredients used for thousands of years and were found on the trade route connecting the Americas with the rest of the world.
I received a variety of their products for review. They are Cruelty-Free, Not Tested on Animals, Clean Ingredients, For All Skin Types, made with Sustainable Development, and are Fair Trade. They also meet the O.W.N natural standards by containing Natural Ingredients, Safety to avoid human health risk, Responsibility with no animal testing, and Sustainability with biodegradable ingredients and environmentally sensitive packaging.
Opening the box, I was impressed the business card was made from a thin, two-ply maple. Very unique. And, I received a handwritten note. It’s always nice to have the personal touch when interacting with small businesses.
Shine Bright Cedar Candle has a 10-hour burning time. It is a lovely and relaxing cedar scent which fills the room without being overwhelming.

Cedar Sachet is the first product in the Cedar line from Clear Light, the original product from 1971. It is a small, but fragrant sachet filled with cedar needles which are activated by rubbing the bag and the scent can last for more than 20 years. A fresh, forest green fragrance which lingers subtly.

I love that the cedar scent is unisex and pleasing to all while being wonderful for using throughout the home. Finding items made in the USA is always desired when using natural products. Knowing how they are sourced from New Mexico, in-house, and using the least amount of processing to preserve the best of each ingredient gives one assurance of the thought and care used in the formulation and crafting of each item. Clear Light was one of the original brands in the natural movement in having been founded in 1971. The endurance of the brand shows the merit in using natural products.
