It was a rainy evening and morning so unfortunately (or fortunately) no early morning sunrise to wake and capture so we had a slow start before our yoga and mediation session with Melanie from Geoffery & Grace, someone I've followed for ages on Instagram but didn't know about her previous years of yoga and mediation teaching it was a really lovely way to start the day it's been ages since I did a full yoga class.
We then met back at the barn for a workshop with Kate from The Owl & The Apothecary. Oh I loved this workshop, we made our own smudge sticks, we learnt about colours, and different stones and what the different herbs represent.
I chose yellow for creativity & inspiration, a clear quartz stone for Energy & Clarity and all the herbs (a foodie after all) but chose a main word which each symbolise, Sage is cleansing, Rosemary gives clarity and Lavender for Love. The smudge sticks take a few weeks to dry out before carrying out a cleansing ritual but it's already in my studio waiting for just the right time to make the space feel even better than it does. Kate has two ritual kits available aWellbeing one and an Abundance one, I will be treating myself to both very soon!
