We've recently added some new items to the shop that are sure to tempt you both organically and mystically. From potions to floral water concoctions, minimalist rings to maximalist bags.....we've got you covered. Read on for more info!!
The ladies that created this blend of sweet smells and good vibes have been best friends for a while, and Monk Oil came into fruition after an annual camping trip that wasn't like the rest! While they both love living in New York City, they, much like many of us, feel the strain of urban life. They were walking full time in the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn and wanted to feel present physically and energetically throughout the day. They say that nature is life's best healer, so after their camping trip, they felt inspired to create the feeling of calm, inner stability and harmony with the outer world while still living in the city, and Monk Oil was born.
Monk Oil is a healing potion that was imagined with a blend of ingredients to support the body, the soul, and the spirit. It contains Organic Avocado oils, Apricot kernel oils, Cedar, Lavender, Organic Rose Otto, and finished with a Rose Quartz crystal dropped into the bottle to harmonize the potion with unconditional love. They've also added Yarrow Environmental Solution Flower Essence by FES to protect against toxic environmental influences and other hazards of modern life, electromagnetic fields and crowded places. Not to mention, these potions are conjured only on special days in New York City: New Moons, Full Moons and other auspicious days. Magical indeed!!
Another product line we're really excited about is from Wildcare. Wildcare was begun by Cortney Herrera with a dedication to create great skincare products based on the indigenous plant life in her landscape. She seeks out information about nature and the forests and deserts around her constantly. Her interest in a new wave of skincare influenced her to complete an herbal internship in Portland and learn from her herbalist sister about the benefits of botanical care. Cortney stands by her Hydrosols and carefully crafted skincare.
What are Hydrosols, you ask? Also known as floral waters, they are products from steam distilling plant materials after the glands of the plant bursts and releases the oils into the steam. These oils collect in a separate vessel, and what is left in the pot is hydrosol! Hydrosols can help with skin maladies, sun burns, bites, skin rejuvenation and more.
Wildcare Hydrosols are recommended as a daily facial toner, but can also be used as a hair/scalp tonic, energetic refreshment, added to baths and used in conjunction with clay masks. Their Purple Majesty Lavender Hydrosol is perfect for balancing PH in all skin types with additional benefits including anti-bacterial support and anti-viral support. Check out the other products we currently have in the shop!
Golden Hour Body Oil, with Apricot Kernel Oil & Sweet Almond Oil is high in skin nourishing essential fatty acids AND leaves your skin with a shimmering glow. We also have the Wild Melon Facial Oil that will leave your skin smooth and radiant while generating new cell growth and scar healing. We recommend using a Hydrosol along with your Facial Oil for maximum impact. These amazing products are surely going to become a permanent part of your skincare routine.
PIECE A CONVICTION
One of our favorite new designers in the shop is Piece A Conviction. This minimalist jewelry collection designed by Ghislain Ryckebusch is hand made in his Atelier just outside of Paris. Their Aventurine Glass (available in black and white) as well as their Silver/Brass rings incorporate a modern design that wraps around your finger with a square back and two "floating" spheres in the front, which feels so lightweight around your finger you'll barely notice it on but won't slip off either. The spheres can be pushed together and adjusted to your exact size as well! Their collection also boasts a few other gems including their Satellite ring that gives your finger a winding hug while their Sun ring will greet your finger with a salutation every day.
