To me it's the everyday magick, the small rituals, the intentions, prayers and blessings weaved into day to day life that become the most potent conduits of connection, growth and change. in my culture, smudging with sage is often used to purify mind, body and spirit of negative feelings and energies. specifically, smoke is passed over the hands, mouth, head, eyes and body. when the smoke is brought to the mouth it is a cleansing but also a blessing prayer that we may speak truth, that words of gratitude and respect may pass through our lips, and that the truth we speak may be spoken in a way that is kind and encourages positivity in ourselves and others.
a few years ago i created a needed ritual and medicine to work with the energetics of sage in a practical herbal toothpowder. as i'm cleansing my mouth using sage as a sacred ingredient i am reminded of the importance of the words that leave my mouth, i ask to be conscious of the way i am creating energy with the words i am using, and the power those words have. creating ritual within an everyday mundane task helps connect me to source, to spirit, to positive forces and the greater web. these little intentions and rituals are especially important to me as a mother of small children, my alone moments are fleeting so i do what i can to nourish my magickal and spiritual self in everyday tasks. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿today i made a new batch of my sage tooth powder, using sea salts and baking soda and additional wildcrafted herbs like horsetail, mint and spruce to help support the health of my mouth. also, toothpowders are great if you can get into them, they are easy and inexpensive to make and are a good replacement for conventional toothpastes that are usually full of crud and often come in non recyclable plastic packaging. and yes i read and write in runic, i have for as long as i can remember.

Our mama + baby soap has been selling like hot cakes on the website recently. thank you everyone for spreading the word!
for those of you that haven’t tried it, what makes this bar especially special is all the wonderful infused oils we use to make it.
we infuse organic sweet chamomile flowers, organic golden calendula flowers and organic pureed carrot pulp in olive oil for at least three weeks to make this gentle bar. .
we then combine it with shea butter, olive oil, coconut oil and cocoa butter to make a creamy soap that is great for even the most sensitive skin.
our top tip (especially when using it with slippery toddlers) is to chop the bar in two or three and use one at a time for easy lathering!
