Devils Club + Nettle: Our Herbal Dark Chocolate 70% Cacao
Devil's club is a classic "heal all" in indigenous use. Medically we use it in diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and to regulate the adrenal/stress response. Nettles are a PNW treat used as a nutritive tonic, aides in allergies, and supports the kidney/urinary system.
Elderflower is a delicate herbal helpful in fever moderation and upper respiratory infections. Yarrow is our classic PNW ally, helping to create strong boundaries for the self, emotionally and physically.
Solomon's Seal is another "heal all" herb used throughout the United States. It can be used for joint pains, inflammatory conditions, rheumatology, dermatology and skin complaints, urinary/bladder problems, and much more.
*These herbs are safe to consume. Contraindications are only if there is a specific allergy to them.
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.
Live in the experience. We curated these oils for deep reflection on meaning, purpose, love, atonement, contrast, and the metaphors, archetypes, and story that fulfills their history.
All essential oils used are sustainable and local when possible. All carrier oils are chosen to offer hydration and elegance, without leaving you greasy and/or dry. Enjoy these daily as an after shower ritual. Use them for sacred touch and massage. Connect. Reflect. Empower.
Also known as the Song of Solomon, or the Canticle of Canticles
"I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine"
Not the sappy cupid love struck, but the love in faith that is given over and over again. The love that comes with sacrifice, difficult circumstances, and true nature. Open yourself completely, with no judgement or agenda. This type of love is considered a resting state of being in Buddhism, and is the utmost state of union in the Abrahamic religions.
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.

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. The cacao shells produce a beautiful aroma of floral notes from the bean pod itself, with a rich chocolate undertone. This isn't your grandma's hot chocolate. 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.
