Essence of Harris is heading across the Atlantic!

 Introducing Essence of Harris products into the US market has always been a huge aspiration for the team here on Harris, and after a lot of hard work and countless hours spent researching the best possible route to take- we’re on our way to bringing a little piece of the Hebrides ‘across the pond’!  With a suitcase packed full of scented treats, Jamie will spend the next two weeks exploring North and South Carolina, and Atlanta, Georgia, as he finalises plans for Essence of Harris’ move to the US.
