"If you’ve ever doubted yourself, walk deep into any forest. Notice how the trees still stand even though they are given no recognition. Walk along any stream. The water still flows, though no one stops to praise it. Watch the stars late at night; they shine without acknowledgment. Humans are just the same. We are made out of the same elements as these beautiful wonders. Always remember your beauty and self worth." – Luna Kundalini
We know we're not saying anything new by reiterating that 2020 was a hard year. We faced a pandemic, social unrest, a historic election, and all the coinciding events and feelings that came with them.
But as we reach a new year, let's remember to hope and rebuild. If we were in a fantasy movie, this would be the part where the evil overlord (2020) is defeated. But it's only the beginning. There is still so much sadness to overcome and destruction to clean up, yet there is hope for a brighter future.
Whether you feel that this year changed you for the better or for the worse, remember that you are the hero of your own story. Set your next quest forward and set it gently. Walk (or dance or even hobble) through the murky woods at your own pace and work your way toward whoever it is you want to be. And along your way, be kind to your fellow wanderers.
In light of the new year and something we're all desperately craving right now, we have launched our new scent, "Breath of Fresh Air." Blended in house with a Montana winter forest in mind, we've included essential oils of Siberian Fir, Cedarwood, Bergamot and a dash of Spearmint. This blend is perfect for clearing your head, lifting your mood, reducing anxiety and, bonus, stimulating your respiratory system.
We are also donating 10% of this year's sales from "Breath of Fresh Air" to Opportunity Resources, Inc. ORI is a Missoula non-profit dedicated to supporting those with disabilities to attain independence through housing, employment and many other daily aspects of their lives. We thank ORI for their 60+ years of leadership in inclusivity and helping those with disabilities achieve their own dreams.
Welcome 2021 and cheers to a fresh start and following our own winding paths!
