WISDOM. BEAUTY. HISTORY.

This month we are focusing on art we carry that is related to the Indigenous culture. The wisdom and beauty that has inspired these special pieces speaks to the depth and insight of the Indigenous people.

WE ALSO CARRY TOOLS AND HERBS THAT ARE USED IN CLEANSING AND SMUDGING RITUALS.

  • Sweetgrass is burned to bring positivity, strength and connection to the Creator. It can be used in smudging and for healing.

  • Sage is burned for releasing and removing negative energy.

Feathers can be used to circulate the smoke during smudging and cleansing rituals. They can also be used to sweep and cleanse the auric field. Connecting to the element of Air, feathers are attuned to the bird they come from.
