Season’s Greetings, Easter Greetings!

Dear Colleagues, Dear Customers and Dear Friends,

Throughout the day we die a little and lose strength until we have to give all up and finally lie down, go to sleep, lose consciousness. We have to give up our most fundamental human qualities: no more speaking, no more standing upright, no more thinking. Other forces take over and help so that in the morning we can rise again, a “resurgence” takes place. We are restored to our full humanity again. Alas the process needs to be repeated.

This process is similar to the tiredness that happens in the metabolism where every out-breath – the result of bodily breakdown processes that create CO2 – must be followed by an invigorating in-breath with its life bringing oxygen. This also has to be repeated. Are we doing this just “out of ourselves “ or are other elements at play here?

Isn’t it interesting that in an archetypal human day we breathe 25,920 times; that in a life time we (again archetypically) “resurge” 25,920 times and that these rhythms are coinciding with the return of the Sun to the same cosmic place it was before in 25,920 years.

We are never alone. The Earth could never live without the Sun. And what if just as the human being is not just a physical body, but has  spiritual qualities that help us to strive for higher ideals that help us to constantly resurrect (from the Latin, resurgere) something noble out of the most downtrodden situations of life, what if Nature had these higher Beings also – that repeatedly infuse us with the forces that we might be lacking at the beginning of the breath, at the beginning of the day, at the beginning of the year. What if the life giving Sun also had its Being that unites itself ever more with the Earth and its inhabitants.

This might explain why we pay so much attention at True Botanica to expose our tinctures to at least seven consecutive morning Suns. These are the impulse that we hope to have our remedies aligned with.

We wish you all the Best in this season of Resurgence of the Sun, after the first full moon after the Spring Equinox. We benefit from this Sun, a particularly Powerful one. We benefit from all the remedies that can be made, and have been made at this time, for this time.

But this Sun also benefits from our celebrating it, inviting it in, acknowledging it, not resisting it, not staying in the dark, in the tired, lost in an out-breathing. Then these forces can become ultimately not just forces of resurgence, but forces of Resurrection.

Let’s take in this special Spring Time and marvel at how much more healthy we can then be, how much more effective our medicines and nutrients can work. They help us if we help them.

Dedicated to You,

The True Botanica Team

DIY Mother’s Day Gift

As Mother’s Day approaches this weekend, one True Botanica coworker shared her DIY gift idea. Since her mother is an avid tea drinker, she decided to decorate a mug and pair it with her mother’s favorite Green Tea. Check out the pictures below for a DIY project or, take mom along and make a fun day of it!

Mug with stem lines

First draw on the lines that will serve as the stems to the blossom tree.

Mug with paint for dots

Next, apply polka dots to the lines to serve as the blossoms.

Applying polka dots to stems

Use the back of the paint brush to apply the polka dot blossoms.

Finished mug before kiln

The mug is now complete and ready to be processed in the kiln!

True Botanica Gets Crafty

– Valentine Idea –
Boswellia Lip Balm Holder

With Valentine’s Day approaching, the True Botanica team thought it would be fun to try out a new craft idea with our Boswellia Lip Balm. This fun (and easy) project is the perfect gift for your Valentine.

Supplies (feel free to get creative, but here are the supplies we used)

Felt
Card Stock
Construction Paper (optional for decorating)
Eyelet
Sewing Machine or Needle and Thread
Glue Stick
Scissors
Ribbon/Yarn (optional)

Instructions

Again, use your creative intuition, but the basic process is you want to sew a piece of felt to another piece of felt or piece of card stock so that the Boswellia Lip Balm fits snug inside. We added an eyelet to the top in order to tie a ribbon. As you can see, there are many different ways you can create this Lip Balm Holder, as long as the Lip Balm can be held in place, you’ve done it correctly!
