On the surface we see a fallen angel, but the story has more depth. How do we handle our shadows? The ones that are entwined in our being. The story of azazel, or the scapegoat, refers to the act of repent. Give your sins to this goat, this physical thing, and acknowledge our need for forgiveness. Then send him off to the woods, for us to try again.
There are many traditions and rituals of presenting our sins to an object, performed as a way for the psyche to release it's old patterns and accept new beginnings. The first step is awareness and acknowledgement of our nature. The second is to ask for help. The third is to bless it, and let it go.

The restoration to health. From Strong's definition: "A restoring to soundness; wholeness (literally or figuratively); health, made up, perfected.” Health, in biblical terms, brings together the entire person, the whole person, if you will. Being a healthy person implies that your whole person is being perfected and restored to soundness.

Salish Sea Soap (Soleseife)Regular price $12.50
Pre-order now! In stock Monday February 1st!
Soleseife (or brine soap) is the German name for soap made with salt water. Brine soap is a fantastic alternative to the standard salt bar. The salt is dissolved into the lye water leaving a smooth-textured, creamy white, extremely hard bar of soap.
This bar is particularly special. We spent time on the coast of the Salish Sea in the San Juan islands, contemplating the essence of Salt Creek Apothecary. Our relationship to ourselves and each other, formulate the foundation of that direction. Keely and I have been slaying of swaying with what has been handed to us, but Salt Creek is more than just rolling with the tides. It's the give and take we experience between the two of us, and how that relates to the products we create. It's the message we speak through each post, article, and word. It's the deepening into the oceans each one of us holds within, of emotion, primal energy, and soul intent. We let go of the desire to control the moon, and instead find peace in its unknown potential.
May you find this ocean with each wash, in tune with the tides of the moon.

Chocolate-TeaRegular price $32.50
Inspired by an herbal educational trip to the Amazon, this tea is a delicate blend of cacao shells, vanilla bean, with a hint of cinnamon.

Add some milk and a spot of honey to enjoy a robust flavorful profile like no other. Steep longer for a more bitter and cacao forward tongue.
