I was inspired by the festivals in the Celtic ritual year to put together these “Gathering Boxes.” These boxes are meant to connect you to these festivals or small seasons through the traditional and ritual use of herbs and story. The feast days themselves are also each a time of gathering together to honor the year's turning and celebrate each passing season and also welcome the new one. Each box is rooted in in my love for the stories of Celtic culture, but sometimes I do pull inspiration from the mythologies of other cultures as well (mainly European, though, because that’s my heritage- Scandinavian/Danish, Celtic, and some German). I’m recording them here mainly as a way for me to look back and see what I made, but also for you to see what kinds of things you can expect in a Gathering Box if you’re thinking of purchasing one through my apothecary. Just to give you an idea, some things I have included in the past are a medicinal food-type item (an electuary or a solids extract), an internal medicinal (tinctures, elixirs, etc), a topical medicinal (creams, serums, oils, herbal baths), or an energetic or spiritual preparation (a medicine bag or a flower essence). I might also happen to get the inspiration to write a poem, prayer, or guided meditation for the box, but that’s highly dependent on if and when the inspiration strikes.
