Most of our old-growth conifer forests are dying, be it by changing climate, beetle or wildfire. This is an odd time, we’re teetering on a precipice, and on the other side of it is a world without these forests. My goal isn’t to depress you; there’s a grand scheme and we humans are but a blip on it: this planet will be here long after we’re gone and it will continue to evolve with or without our helping it along. But this precipice, this coming change, its one that is sad simply because these places that are so magical to us personally will no longer exist, and one day there won’t be anybody around who even experienced them. 

These forests are utterly sacred to me. Not just because they are becoming rarer, but also because of what you can feel when you’re deep inside one: the crunch of pine needles underfoot. The scent of conifer resin as it warms in the sun. The glimmer of sunlight on pine needles. The way rain drops catch, and wait. The way the air shimmers. The spirit in all of these trees, and the larger organism of the forest, as this pulsating presence that shimmers with magic. 

The Sacred Forest surprise box is going to be an offering to the magic of conifer forests. Medicine from the old forests: to connect you to that slow, deep, old earth energy that sees time and change so differently to us, but is fully present amid its own transformation. 

It will be full of conifer magic: hot conifer baths surrounded by candles, the scent of pine resin carrying in the steam; wood-fired acorn and pine needle tea sipped on a cold night; the warmth of a conifer liqueur as you sip it by the fire; fresh, bright scented resin, infused into oils, that you can massage into your skin. It will be full of the conifer forests: White fir, piñon pine, Jeffrey pine, Douglas fir. Sticky resin. Magic. 

In this box, you’ll receive four products. There will be a tincture or elixir; a tea, a drinkable thing (tea or such); an external use product, be it a bath (or foot bath), body oil or possibly an incense or atmosphere mist; and a culinary item. Possible ideas so far include:
