It’s December, y’all! Happy everything!!
This month also marks the 12th edition of the From Foxglove with Love subscription. We started this little project in January with like, 5 subscribers, and now there are over 60 of you. These coven boxes have grown and blossomed into something I am incredibly proud of. I am so grateful for each and every one of you who’ve been along for the ride. Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my black little heart.
This month is the “Cold Moon,” and the full moon will be hanging out in Gemini. Highs and Lows, y’all. Get ready for some swinging emotions. Hang on, but not too tight, and I promise you’ll get through this. This box is a holiday care package to get you through it. Stay warm, practice self-care, and protect yourself from the bullshit of others.
What’s in the box?
Socks! From Sky Outfitters! For every pair of socks Sky Outfitters sells, they give a pair to an organization that helps people experiencing homelessness. So I bought y’all a bunch of socks, so we could keep twice as many toes warm.
Yule Feel Great tea! This tea is made with all my favorite cold-fighting, immunity-boosting, mood-elevating, good-time ingredients. It tastes like a sweet winter morning and feels like not getting sick when you have too much shit to do.
Feminist stickers! The Crybaby Club made these fantastic stickers. They’re cute and I love them, and they’re my present to you. I love you!
Hyggelig in a spray bottle! Everyone loved the hell out of Hyggelig when I included it as a roll-on oil, so now it’s back and bigger with a wider spritz radius. I hope you still love it! The word means something close to “the feeling of happiness that you can’t really explain.” And that’s what it should invoke for you.
Mojo bags! I teased you guys about these last month. These are the mojo bags my dear friend Hannah from Hanaba Days made! She’s the one who made the precious little tarot bags from last month’s box. Enjoy!
Rosy and Bright oatmeal facial! This one requires a little DIY work on your end. Mix the dry ingredients with the mixer of your choice (witch hazel for dry skin; apple cider for oily or acne-prone skin; and regular water for flawless skin, you goddess) and then slather it on. There’s probably enough in there for 3-4 masks. Maybe share it with someone you love. Maybe not. I’m not telling you what to do. This is your holiday!
A card! These cards help fight homelessness. All proceeds go to an organization that helps those in need. I sort of planned on writing you each individual love letters, but my hand was cramping at the thought, so I thought, ‘Hey. I’ll just give them blank cards so they can share with someone they love.’ So that’s where we’re at now.
I’m trying to keep this letter short because I’m sure you’re sick of me over-explaining things. But I have a few more things to say. I’m sorry.
There’re a few new/different things in store in 2020, and I just wanted to give you a heads up about all that. Due to the nature of planets, time, and payment cycles, the full moons will be coming earlier in the month each month. That means the boxes won’t be able to arrive before the full moon does. So now you can expect your packages to arrive by the 15th of each month, with tools to get you through the following moon cycle. I might be making this more confusing that I need to be. Maybe I’m the only one who even knew that y’all have been getting your deliveries before the monthly full moon. Who knows.
2020 will also feature a different plant each month, highlighting its medicinal and magical value in that month’s products. Spoiler alert: next month is mullein, so you’ll see some social media posts about it, as well as products that use it in your next box.I’m always working toward a more waste-free box, so let me know if you have any ideas for improvements. I’m all ears.
I love you! Happiest holidays! Merry Solstice! Blessed Everything!
