The year is officially nearing its completion as we prepare for the winter season - a time of pause, reflection and hibernation. This period of rest and renewal also invokes anticipation for the new year and all that it may bring. This month’s offering, and part of our Blue Moon Phases of Beauty Ritual Gift, is Honeysuckle Moon, which is the shining star in our Align with Beauty Box.
This tea was inspired by Zhena’s childhood, where lush honeysuckle would grow all around her yard, and she would spend hours plucking the flowers and delighting in their nectar! Honeysuckle is remarkably healing, and we hope your senses relish this nourishing, delicate blend, as it was one of our most intricate teas to formulate!
Honeysuckle Moon alchemizes Organic Apple, Organic Zante Currant, Organic White Tea, Butterfly Pea Flowers, Organic Honeysuckle Flowers, Organic Rose Petals, Organic Strawberry, Organic Hibiscus, Organic Blackberry Leaf with Natural Honeysuckle Flavor and Vanilla Extract.
And our special gift to you, included in this month’s box, is a jar of Royal Jelly Body Butter with Chamomile and Myrrh from our friends at Savannah Bee Co. This formula combines the finest hive treasures as well as skin-quenching essential oils to provide deep moisture and deliver multivitamins and antioxidants, perfect for even the most sensitive of skin. Use in the morning to glide into your day with mindfulness or use at night to unwind over a cup of tea.
I am nourished by the nectar of my spirit.
I honor the many phases of me.
I celebrate my uniqueness, and my beauty.
I am brilliant, balanced, and whole.
