Start here: a beginner's guide to self care as a ceremony.

"Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”

We know how stepping into a new world can be daunting. We made this little guide to help you start your journey by looking at self care through different lenses. 
Let your intuition do the rest.



Self Ceremony is the celebration of self care as a ritual.

By turning a ritual into a ceremony you become more in tune with what is truly meaningful to you and hold space to celebrate it. 

It’s a process that requires that you set time aside for yourself, a mindful pause, that not only grounds you in the present moment, but also paves the way to access your internal world.

It’s an experience from beginning to end, a reflection of what matters to you and the ways you want to take care of your needs. And by making these choices you are choosing your authentic self over and over, from a place of love, self-worth, nourishment and beauty. 



These are some of the ceremonies we love and their benefits.

We choose plants and crystals to connect and ground us in these ceremonies.

Herbal medicine is one of the most satisfying practices. Used since ancient times in every culture and every land, herbal wisdom is truly a wonderful system of medicine. Used joyously and judiciously, herbs are capable of bringing incredible health, energy and vitality into our lives. 

Plants are the true alchemists of the natural world: taking carbon dioxide and giving back oxygen, taking nitrogen to transform it into amino acids, in communion with the Sun, the Moon, air, water, and earth and their surroundings. Plants build all kinds of chemicals in constant relationship to the circumstances in which they find themselves: they make medicine for themselves, for other plants, for the environment around them, and for us.

Crystals have a specific and clear vibration. By openly engaging with these vibrations, crystals can act as a tuning fork to help recalibrate your vibrations to a more aligned place, helping you to be more balanced physically, emotionally, and spiritually. In other words, they resonate at frequencies that help you align, relax, energize and balance your own rhythms.
