February is a month that allows us the continued space of inner restoration, exploration & connection. Though we may be wishing for longer, lighter and warmer days of spring we don't want to rush the quiet space this time allows. This space and the collective energy we gather will allow us the momentum to move through times when there is a need for that extra zest.

Aromatic Highlights: We explored the healing wonders of Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis). It was perfect for starting the new year right. This month, Sitka Spruce is our focus. This coastal conifer brings its own unique therapeutic magic to the aroma-stage helping to support our vital energy while clearly setting healthy boundaries.

All through February, we will learn all about the amazing Sitka Spruce. Here is a glimpse into what you can expect this month:

  • Focused Article: The Plant Behind the Oil - Sitka Spruce.
    Take a look at its origin, history, and characteristics.
  • Essential Oil Recipe: A massage oil to help with aches and pains associated with the flu.
  • A Mindful Plant Sit with Sitka Spruce:
    Join us for a meditative session where we'll spend quiet time with this gentle giant of a tree.
  • Food Recipe: Piney IPA Beer Bread
    Learn how easy and delicious this beer bread is to make any night of the week and it can be mixed right in the baking pan!
  • Botanical Oil: Apricot Kernel Seed Oil
    Check out how nourishing this lesser known carrier oil is for our skin, making it a must have for our formulations.
  • Beachy Aromatic Reads: Find your comfy blanket and favorite cup of tea for a bit of "me" time with this amazing book.
  • Personal Story & Quick Tip: Iceland Sitka Spruce Journey with Jenny!
  • Last but not least: Thrive Live on February 29th!

We look forward to a February full of heart-centered learning, blending and LOVE.
