Fall Collection 2021
The October Box


Black Sage/Black Tourmaline are this month's themes, and the only question we have is whether to smoke, steep, or spritz it? The answer is all of the above. Salvia mellifera, also known as black sage, grows abundantly throughout California and Baja's dry chaparral landscapes and has numerous traditional uses and medicinal properties. As Halloween and Dia de los Muertos approach us, Black sage can help us get into the spirit of grounding, reflection, and ceremony. This October, members unboxed four carefully selected bath and wellness goods, and each item evoked a mood all on its own.

crystal muse
of the month
BLACK TOURMALINE

Our crystal muse of the month is none other than black tourmaline. Said to help with clearing out negative energies, protection, and grounding, this stone is tied to the root chakra. The black tourmaline crystal-inspired soap is made with dried native black sage flowers, and is scented with pure essential oils of sage and cinnamon. 

Black sage can help ease inflammation and chronic pain. A black sage sun tea can be prepared and used as a foot soak to help promote relaxation and ease pain.
