Warp & Weft: held and supported by the universe
I've been feeling exhausted lately, and in my own body, a deep need for the feeling of being held: I picture it like a hammock, or a giant universal web, that holds, nurtures and supports.
Deeper than nourishment, support has within it the idea of context and connectedness: in order to be supported, we must actually be touched— we have to let the world in, in order for it to hold us. A net. A web. Woven of the fabric of the universe, the warp and weft of the weaving strokes that we are a part of.
With this comes something else that’s difficult: the idea of surrender, and of receiving. In order to receive that support we have to actually allow it, and surrender to it. We have to realise that we are worthy of it, as we are, not with another 5 minutes of work, or having done the dishes, but right now. Tired. Messy. Imperfect. Still deserving.
This surprise box is an exploration of receiving, deserving, and support: a net to hold you, a web to connect, and to remind you that you, as you are right now, are worthy of being held.
I’ll be using some of my favourite herbs: shatavari, cardamom, ashwagandha, milky oat, rose, and kava kava, with a touch of reishi, vanilla and hawthorn, to build a surprise box that embodies that feeling of deserving and receptiveness; nourishment and support.
In the box will be a tincture or elixir, a tea, a drinkable powder blend (like a hot chocolate but not!), and some sort of external use body product, be it a bath (or foot bath), body oil or possibly an incense or atmosphere mist. Possible ideas so far include:
All of this will come wrapped in linen, with a little bifold and information about the plants used in the box, about the winter, and how to find our roots, and a recipe or two.
