Herb Sisters Collective Box - January
Our herb box this month intends to help you find strength in the vitality of the plants, who were preserved in the summer, spring or fall to come and support us at this time of plant hibernation. This month we can take the long view in our lives, step back and be grateful for the wheel of the season. It's a time to slow to a steady pace that can sustain us through to Spring with its invigorating energy.
HERB ALLY OF THE MONTH - CALENDULA (calendula officinalis L.)
This golden haired member of the asteraceae family is most often seen used topically.

We've included this sunny colored herb to help support you through the winter shadow season.
