Advice for Life is the same company, same shop, same Advice as Your True Nature—with a whole new look.

TREES ARE OUR ROOTS

Planted in Bend, Oregon, we have worked for the last twenty years to love nature, create products, give back to our community, and celebrate nature & human nature. We offer folks a chance to purchase something that will make them laugh, give them profound wisdom, teach them to take care of the earth, encourage them to have a low impact on resource usage and it’s an all around win-win!
