Aromatic aromas. Candlelight. Draping bushels of foraged foliage. Friends & family. Mistletoe. Mindful moments. Magical moments. Paper lanterns. Rose gold talismans. Roaring fires. Seasonal sacred spaces. Thoughtful gifts. Twigs. Twiglets. Wild harvested & handmade wreaths.
This really is the most wonderful time of the year.
We LOVE this time of the year. And this Christmas we are looking at ways that we can create the magic whilst being mindful of both ourselves and the environment.
Here are top three tips to create a make a little change – and create a wild & wonderful Christmas….
Forage for your foliage…
Go natural with your Christmas decorations and bring the outside in. For a truly magical & mindful, fill your home with rosehips, pine branches, bay and rosemary. Being in nature will help clear your mind – and for extra ritual richness, why not set your intentions for a calmer Christmas as you gather your greenery.
Choose natural candlelight
Candles are an essential part of making a home feel cosy during the winter months, so look for natural soy or beeswax candles (rather than paraffin based candles). The aromatic essentials oils in our Midwinter Crystal Candle is perfect for this time of year… better for air pollution and better for your wellbeing.
Buy less, buy smart, shop local
Support the innovative British makers & creators with your pound – independent retailers are putting themselves out there as the sustainable alternative to multinationals AND you show someone you’ve taken the extra effort to find something special for them.
MINDFUL MIDWINTER AFFIRMATION
To finish all rituals, thank the creative energies of Earth, Fire, Air & Water. End your ceremony with a spoken declaration of gratitude and love – a wild & wonderful “Whoot!” would be very appropriate.
Merry Christmas, one & all!
