Something for the new year.
Today, we're celebrating the first full moon of the calendar year.
With its strong Cancerian energy, today's full moon will bring vibes of domesticity, security, nostalgia, and emotional stability. Over the next 72 hours, you may particularly enjoy one of our most popular Spotify playlists, Acoustic Covers.
Listening to familiar tunes in a new way may be the inspiration you need now. Reflecting on things in a new way can be... well,
however you want it to be.
So, light up some #stixandstones, get out your
#rockwithcare, throw on this playlist and get ready for a special kind of tranquility. Journaling over the next few days is a cherry on top.
Two months ago, on the November full moon, we launched #stixandstones, an organic and sustainable Palo Santo collection offering over 100 doses of plant medicine benefits. Used by shamans and spiritual communities for centuries, scientists are now rapidly discovering the therapeutic, medicinal, and practical uses of Palo Santo - and we are here to educate.
If you are new to Palo Santo, the active constituents of the 'holy wood' include several monoterpenes, which not only act as air purifiers and deodorizers due to their antibacterial and antiviral properties, but they also offer uplifting effects known to alleviate stress and anxiety. Simply smelling the wood releases neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin, while stimulating the release of endorphins. Burning the wood for a dose, does more.
The 24-page booklet included with #stixandstones offers customers the intel they need to have a beautiful experience with the product. We are describing Palo Santo in a way no one else is. “For starters, we think of our Palo Santo as an essential oil in stick format. You can sniff the product to get the olfactory benefits, or you can take a dose of the product. Repeatedly.” An excerpt from page 4 of the booklet.
We tested over 20 varieties of Palo Santo from different forests before landing on the 3 distinct varieties selected for the first batch of #stixandstones.
Every batch will source different SERFOR certified Palo Santo coming from protected forests across South America. The soil, climate, and environment impact the look and smell of the holy wood called Palo Santo and Grounded 1002 is excited for its customers to experience the variety.
Not only are we sourcing high resin wood with no added chemicals, we are also teaching our community how to ‘dose’ in a sustainable way.
Retailing at 18.45 GBP, each dose costs less than 20 pence - a steal for a tool that offers so much for the mind, body, and soul.
Grounded 1002 promotes an #intuitivelifestyle, creates experiences, and is a store. Our mission is to be a gateway for people being a better version of themselves. We believe the #essentialelement is to #rockwithcare. After all, we know that the nursery rhyme #stixandstones wasn’t entirely true. Every product and experience we offer is meant to be additive – whether used just once or on a daily basis.
