Wow, what a time to be alive.
How are you? Hows your heart?
I hope that you are taking time and space to digest what is happening, experience and work through the feelings, and make time to really embrace and relish in all of the things in your life that you are grateful for.
I'll just get into the medicine bit:
I have a well stocked apothecary and luckily already had made many medicines made that are indicated for COVID-19.
I have been consciously taking inventory of what all i have to offer, what i should set aside, and waiting for the frenzy (within myself and in the outside world) to calm down before I listed some stuff. I will be continuing to add to it as I get more bottles and bring some money back in.
I am offering everything at a sliding scale. I will have 2 ongoing coupons for percentages off (20% off- BEWELL20 // 40% off- BEWELL40) and I decided to offer 2 things at a pay what you can scale could be full price, could be $0). Hand sanitizer and an essence blend.This sliding scale medicine is a way for me to offer support to the community while also trusting that my monetary needs will be met. If you are okay with money please pay what you feel is fair and if you are feeling called to this medicine and are feeling financially unable, please allow me to gift it to you. Either way- from my heart to yours.
I am going to be very honest and say that we (my family) are currently in the boat of "oh fuck- what are we going to do? How will we pay bills and buy groceries?" because my honey is out of work until who knows when so this- my hearts work- my offering to the world- is our only source of income. Yet, i trust.
For now, These are the medicines I have available in the shop- organized by category:
-st. Johns wort
Immune modulating support:
-st. John's wort
All items are listed in the virtual shop. (HERE is a link to the shop)
I also want to encourage you to make your own medicine, get to know the plants that are around you and learn their medicine. I will be posting and sharing recipes, how to videos, plant profiles, materia medica, and pretty much just sharing some of my brain with you guys. This is all happening in real time, which these days feel like either snail speed or chasing my tail speed with all the kids home and trying to get into a whole new rhythm.
