✨Palo Santo✨holy stick, holy wood, or Bursera Graveolens is a wild tree in the same family as frankincense and myrrh. We are lucky enough to have all these divine burnables in shop. Native to Mexico, the Yucatán Peninsula, Peru and Venezuela, among many more. Local customs used it against “mala energia” (bad vibes 😣) and it’s use dates back to the Inca era. When burned like a smudge stick this resinous wood gives a warming aroma 🔥 paired with your genuine intentions and honest desire for a relationship, Palo Santo can help clean the air and help you create an environment to thrive in 🔮 .

Have a blooming weekend wildflowers 🌸🌻🌼

🌸 P e o n y 🌸

I always love a good story to the meanings of flowers and a nod at Floriography (the language of flowers) is always too good not to research. Here are my meagre Peony discoveries. 🌸Peony meanings include romance, prosperity, good fortune, a happy marriage, riches, honor, and compassion

In one tale, the peonies get their name from the Greek word Paeon. In Greek mythology, Paeon was the physician to the gods who angered his teacher Asclepius after he extracted a milky liquid from the root of a peony that cured Pluto. Asclepius was the god of medicine and healing. 🌸

I also went on a bit of an adventure this morning to a Peony field. A local Real Estate agent (Ben Milne, thanks Ben!) was raising money for the Westpac Life Flight Trust. You could pick your own flowers and donate money via Ben (continuing for the next few weekends from 10 - 12pm). I managed to find two of the last pink coloured Peonies and found the White Peonies to be just as beautiful.

Magickal Myth also has it that Peonies are useful for protection. Another reason to fill our fields and houses with them!! Any excuse really 😁

What are your fav flowers? Can you choose? (I can't, but Peonies are definately in my top 3).

NEW • Introducing my Snowflake pin! This gorgeous pin is plated in 10K Gold. It is the perfect little winter accent for your coat lapel, blazer, as a collar pin or a tie pin. It would be so sweet as a winter accent for a holiday party too.

I grew up and went to college in the Midwest, and this pin was inspired by the first snowfall of the season. That sweet, magical moment when you're able to watch the first few flakes of snow slowly drift to the ground.

You can find this brand new holiday pin in my shop at hemleva.com. You can also find it in person at @westcoastcraft in San Francisco this weekend! I will be in Booth D17. I hope you love it as much as I do. ❄️💖 #hemleva

Who knows what these gorgeous pieces of art are? 😍

I’m really enjoying coloring my pieces now that I watched @lizkohlerbrown skillshare classes and followed her directions. Her brushes made such a big difference in my work!

Have you ever wondered why we all love flowers so much? I mean aside from the fact that they are beautiful and aromatic. According to TCM when plant flowers it is at its prime and having the most Qi (life energy). As energetic beings, we are automatically drawn to things that have a lot of (Qi) positive energy as energies transfer. It's as if you meet someone who is a very happy go lucky person and you pick up that happy energy/vibe when we spend time together and vice versa when you spend time with someone who is generally more negative. Be mindful. Preserve and cultivate your Qi.

This elegant beauty is on its way to its new home! I love the neutral colors in this one! 🌿🖤
