INDIGEBOX - Holiday Edition
Our Holiday Box has a focus on self-care, because isn't that something we all need more of!
Most curated boxes come in a pretty standard mailing box - but not The Indigebox this is an Art itself with traditional Bentwood Box design by the amazing Andy Everson, he is going to personally sign and number each box which of course is limited edition of 50 ! For shipping they will be wrapped in recycled Kraft paper with branded eco friendly paper tape, and stuffed using recycled krinkle paper - every single part of the packaging is eco-conscious!
Bear Dreamer Tea -is made by Metis medicine keeper Dianne MacLean, Very Berry tea is all handpicked and processed in small batches. Its is super good for fighting off colds, high in Vit C. This tea requires a long simmer time of 1/2 hour to fully activate all those nutrients and this is enough to make 2 pots. If you use it when you are feeling run down this could be the boost you need to turn the corner.
The next item is a tiny powerhouse - this Devils Club Salve is harvested and hand crafted by Ligwalda'axw elder, June Johnson. As you probably know Devils club is a sacred medicine, one I usually harvest myself but I am VERY picky about who I take medicines from and June is one of my trusted elders that I get medicines from. It great for eczema, aches from arthritis, inflammation and skin irritations. It's a small pot but a little goes a long way.
Next up is the raven song trio which are handmade in Campbell River by uber creative Haida entrepreneur Valerie Lamirande who is absolutely gifted in her making of these items - the Haida Potlatch soap, a Moon cake (which is a bath bomb) and soy candle in black raspberry vanilla, not only do they look amazing, they smell heavenly and feel as luxurious as any natural handcrafted soap you can imagine.
The 8th item is the Totem Healing House Botanical facial cleanser that I made, and I am so pleased with how the packaging turned out - so this cleanser is like medicine for your face - so many incredible active ingredients! But the stand out on this one is bergamot - a citrus fruit grown in Italy which is knows for its polyphenols which serve to protect and repair your skin, its an antioxidant and it stimulates autophagy - which is a cellular process by which your body cleanses and removes toxins and repairs the damage left by them. SO not only does is smell great - its a powerhouse for nutrients for your skin.
We also included a natural sea sponge, if you haven’t gotten on to these yet, you will be so hooked! These are the absolute best eco-friendly face washing tool, because harvesting sea sponges actually helps them to live longer, encouraging regeneration and self-renewal so they are truly a renewable resource. And- get this - they are antibacterial and anti microbial so they don’t get gross and gunky, they dry out in between uses AND— they are made of sea minerals- like magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, and so much more which actually infuse into your skin! SO they feel soft but are extremely effective at removing layers of dead skin and cleaning your pores.
You are going to want to use the next item our eco-friendly headband with these facials - not only are they made with organic cotton and bamboo blends they are printed with water based inks - like all of our eco-friendly women’s wear line is. We have an assortment of 8 colours in two designs and you will get a random selection - if you order early and specify a headband color we will do our best to honour requests but can’t guarantee.
Next is our very own Ocean and Earth Facial mask, the base of this is Kaolin clay which is mineral called “Kaolinite,” has a neutral pH and is rich in silica dioxide - it detoxifies, soothes inflammation immediately - so if you have a break out - this will help tremendously. The kelp and algae nutrient rich, help stimulates the production of four types of dermal collagen and elastin so it plumps and hydrates the skin. All the ingredients are loaded with Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants. It stimulates your skin cells so if you use it regularly he will see that it tones, brightens and cleanses your skin. So light the candle, get in the bath, cleanse your face - leave the mask on for 10-15 min and chill!
The perfect little purse size hand sanitizer, I made a huge batch of this at the beginning of the pandemic and gave them all away, I have them everywhere, in my car, purse, workspace etc. Its made with 99% alcohol and lavender and tea tree oils and aloe so your hands don’t dry out. It smells like a cocktail. We recommend re-filling and re-using the bottle.
Our “treat-yo-self” luxury item is the Raven Bait Bracelet, a super sleek black fur cuff with abalone accent. This was made here by Erin and Marion Dawson, did the abalone beading. If you have a large wrist you can stretch the bracelet just like leather. If you have an extra small wrist we made a few tiny ones so please specify in the notes on your order if you require an X Small size and we will do our best to accommodate.
Finally a beautiful art card featuring the same box design by Andy Everson - Also included is an *exclusive discount code* for 30% off apparel from Totem Design House for use between January and February of 2021!
