I’ve learned that an intuitive path to wellness is the only path that works for me. So what exactly does ‘intuitive wellness’ mean? Ultimately, I think it’s different for everyone.
For me, intuitive wellness means learning to go deeper so that you can begin to listen to, and understand, your needs—body, mind, and spirit. When we learn what nourishment feels like, what balanced energy feels like, what harmony and wellness feel like, we can then recognize when something shifts out of alignment, educate ourselves on all available options, and make informed decisions on which foods, products, activities, and services will best enrich us on a holistic level. This mix looks different for every single one of us. That’s the beauty of it.
NATURAL WELLNESS OFFERINGS:
Natural wellness and nature driven spirituality are pillars to my own intuitive path. I have been brewing my own beauty and wellness products at home for over 15 years. They are tried, tested and beloved, and I am overjoyed to finally have the ability to share them with you!
I am also currently enrolled in an Herbalism program to up the ante on my herbal wisdom in hopes of increasing the diversity of my offerings in the future.
My wellness offerings are all-natural, small-batch, cruelty-free, handmade & infused with sustainably sourced botanicals, oils, and natural, safe ingredients.
Because all of my wellness offerings are all natural and free from artificial preservatives or harsh chemicals, they are meant to be enjoyed right away rather than stored. The bottles I use may vary, depending on what I have available, but will always be glass or metal and reusable/recycleable.
I have found replenishment of spirit and energy to be integral to total well-being. To me, working on both the light and shadow aspects of ourselves is the only way to truly develop our spirit, grow and expand. I offer ritual, spiritual and mindfulness products to help you with this process so you can develop your intuition, set intention and own your magick, on your terms. My spiritual offerings are always woven with nature and follow the same guidelines of sustainability and ethical sourcing as my other offerings.
Out of respect to the Indigenous population and in recognition of the mass appropriation of their sacred traditions and diverse cultural practices I do not offer “smudge” kits nor do I sell white sage bundles or sweetgrass braids. ‘Smudge’ is a word that is commonly misused to describe the simple burning of sage or smoke cleansing. In reality, the practice of smudging is a very specific and sacred practice for many Indigenous cultures, deep rooted in generations of medicinal and spiritual teachings. It is not to be taken lightly nor something you can simply do. Using the term ‘smudge’ to describe any act other than a traditional Indigenous practice is cultural appropriation.
We want to celebrate and appreciate, not appropriate. Cultural appropriation is a harmful power dynamic in which members of a dominant culture take elements from a culture of people who have been systematically oppressed by that dominant group, many times for trying to practice those same cultural elements that are now being appropriated. As these elements are shared en masse they become increasingly separated from their original culture and meaning and members of the culture that was robbed is further oppressed by being forced to watch as their culture gets scrubbed away. It is incredibly harmful. But it is incredibly avoidable if we remain conscious.
So, how do we avoid it? We must be mindful consumers. We must truly understand our actions and the language we use. We must do our research. We must realize that we can appreciate aspects of other cultures without needing to claim them as our own. We must purchase directly from folks within the culture we want to celebrate. We must share the background and history of the things we learn by amplifying voices within that culture. We must always ask ourselves if we are the appropriate person to be speaking about, teaching, or doing a certain practice. We must learn from those willing to teach, and pay them for doing so.
All that being said, if you are interested in taking part in a traditional Indigenous smudging ceremony there are many Indigenous cultures willing to teach and share while keeping their culture and tradition intact. In terms of herb burning and smoke cleansing, which is a different practice than traditional smudging and has been practiced by many cultures throughout the ages, I do routinely often offer some beautiful herb and incense options that fall under my own ancestral practices. I will add them to the shop and many of my kits when they are available.
