A Note About Essential Oils
oils are volatile plant oils that are very strong when undiluted. We
always, always recommend you use them with a carrier base oil such as
jojoba, sweet almond, grapeseed or coconut. Always do a small patch test
with the diluted oil, before using a larger amount. We do NOT recommend ingesting any essential oil. They are for external use only. We do not recommend essential oils as a replacement for proper medical care, nor do we claim any health effects. Remember: a little goes a very long way. Do not overuse essential oils. Do NOT use directly in the bath water, unless you've researched the oil first. DO NOT use around children or pets, unless you are knowledgeable on the use of essential oils.
*Many essential oils do not metabolize properly in the bodies of dogs, cats, birds and other household pets* Please research this or speak to your veterinarian before deciding that essential oils are a good choice for your household.
ALWAYS use essential oils in a well ventilated area, and only a few drops at a time.
Do not use straight essential oil in candle-heated oil warmers. They
must be used with water, and only a few drops at a time! If you're using
essential oils in a steam diffuser, again - always use diffuser
machines as directed.
We can't stress enough the importance of knowing how to use these oils properly.
A Note About Burning Incense Indoors:
burn incense, resins, herbs and other scented items in a well
ventilated room. Incense smoke can quickly overtake the senses, and can
be too much for sensitive people and pets. Always use appropriate
holders for the incense type you're burning, and never leave burning
material unattended - not even for a few minutes. We care about you and
the well-being of you and your family.

other herbal items in our shop. We believe these items should be

strive to purchase these herbals from companies who respect Mother
Earth. To the best of our knowledge, all herbals we offer are

A Note On SMUDGING, Smoke Cleansing, And Herbs Sacred To First Nations People
Having various herbs for smoke cleansing in our shop provides us the opportunity to educate
people about what smudging really is. Please know that smudging is a closed
practice belonging to First Nations peoples. We ourselves are not First
Nations, but we feel it is important and respectful to make the distinction between smudging
and smoke cleansing. If you are smoke cleansing your home of negative
energies, that is not smudging. Smudging is a sacred ceremony that is
taught and passed down by the elders in the First Nations communities. Please, be mindful of using
the word "smudge" when you are cleansing your sacred space. They are
similar, yes - but not entirely the same thing. If you'd like to know
more about traditional Indigenous cultural practices, please contact your
local First Nations cultural centre.
We do also honour the First Nations custom of bartering
for these herbs. If you'd like to trade handicrafts or other items,
we're open to the trade of items for the herbs, so that no money is
exchanged. We do have to charge for the herbs, normally, as it would be
very costly for us to give it away for free. We hope that is
understandable. We do keep our herb prices very affordable so that more
people are able to obtain them.
you're unsure about using Sage or Sweetgrass in your own practice,
there are many other herbal alternatives. We offer a variety of
choices. With this being said, we invite you to check out these informative links about the herbs most sacred to Canadian First Nations.
