Winter. A time for quiet reflection, celebrations, and gratitude. These colder months allow us to hole-up with loved ones, partaking in sumptuous traditions like baking pies and stoking fires. It is also a time when so many of us tend to let wellness practices slip, ever so slightly, in favor of the sweetness, the richness, the excitement of the season. We eat too many treats and sip on too many rich, alcoholic beverages. We move less, drink less water, eat fewer greens.
Sleeping Beauty Tea – We love to brew a pot of this before bedtime and sip with our loved ones. With floral notes of chamomile and lavender blended with sharper peppermint and catnip leaves, this tea will help you drift off into a winter slumber.
Bright Side Wellness Tincture – A rose-colored blend of elderberry, echinacea and rosehips to give your immune system a little boost. I carry a bottle of this in my coat pocket daily and add a few drops to my tea.
A Pot of Honey – Infused with elderberries, cinnamon and cloves, a raw Oregon wildflower honey will give you just the sweet pick-me-up you crave.
The Collection of Handmade Maple Tableware~ offers one of my favorite designs…Amanda calls it the TIPPY CANOE SPICE and HERB SPOON. When she think of spices & herbs, she instantly think of warmth, bubbling pots and whistling kettles – scents wafting through the house, hands and tummies waiting to be warmed. The Tippy Spoon is a perfect pairing with Duck Feather Herbs’ tea blend. To accompany the Canoe spoon comes a little Honey Paddle ... perfect for drizzling your infused honey!
The Hand Dipped Beeswax Tapers~ amongst Amanda’s favorite primitive provisions to make. Mostly, because it connects her to the past…when she think about necessity vs. aesthetics…when candles were 100% relied on for light and not decor. The wicks are 100% Organic Hemp and the beeswax smells like a dream. As we cloister in during these darker months it’s important to keep our air as clean as we can, beeswax is the cleanest burning option for candles, it has been suggested that it also cleans the air as it burns.
The Olive Oil Bergamot and Chamomile Body Bars ~pure delight for dry winter skin. Simple Ingredients, Nourishing and Delightful to the senses. All Handmade and Offered to you…This Winter Season.
