It's the way we are, the things we love, the people we inspire, the relationships we embrace and our passion that reveal our real beauty. A great big smile, bright eyes and a vibrant glow make us stop, take notice, and remember that we are all connected.
The symbol we place on every bottle of Good Medicine represents the continuous Circle of Life that moves in and around us, bringing light to the soil, breath to the clay, riches and beauty to all parts of ourselves. The medicine wheel embodies the Four Directions, as well as Father Sky, Mother Earth, and Spirit Tree – all of which symbolize dimensions of health and the cycle of life.
The Good Medicine Blessing
"For all that we are and can become, we give thanks to the sky above for its precious moisture, the sand below for the light it holds, the breeze that rushes by - cleansing our skin with its lacy wings, and the plants that give life back to the air again."
Are you familiar with Dr. Emoto's work on the impact that blessings or even words taped to a bottle of water have on the crystalline structure of water? In the same way, the Good Medicine symbol acts as a blessing to each bottle and jar and lovingly brings awareness to the positive vibrations that impact our health and the health of the planet.
Glass is made from silica sand, also called quartz sand, and is essentially crystals. Crystals have the capacity to absorb and transfer energy. So if you love crystals, and who doesn't ;) then this concept will ring true; when you hold a glass jar in your hand, it picks up your energy and individual vibes, even your patterns of energy and transfers it to the product inside. Because our formulas are made with real, whole ingredients there is an innate intelligence that can adapt to each persons energy pattern or frequency. We get a little "woo woo" with this, but we believe that as you use our products, holding that glass bottle in your hand, energetically each product becomes more a part of the user and vice versa. We love the idea of this beautiful exchange of energy that bonds us to things we love and creates healing and vitality.
We avoid packaging our vibrant formulas in plastic, knowing that it not only leaches chemicals into the product but also leaches the good stuff out of the product and sometimes even changes the chemical structure of the ingredients inside.
To us, sustainability is a way of life and a new way of thinking and acting that considers the wellbeing of our planet, our communities, and our individual paths. We encourage you to recycle or reuse your beautiful glass jars in creative ways. They make great containers for candles or to store small treasures.
It's about choice. Choose wisely.
