This post is a guest feature by cannabis advocate, earth medicine intuitive, and our lovely
co-founder Blair Lauren Brown.
Thich Nhat Hanh, reminds us in his book, Teachings on Love, that practicing compassionate and true love helps us let go of pain, sadness, judgement and other bindings of the mind that keep our heart dormant to the possibilities of a fuller life.
Like all good things, in time and with practice we will be blessed with knowing the experience. Again, I have to remind myself to practice. I have to remind myself to embrace the process. This is where I find myself pursuing meditations and rituals.
If you want to know more about my personal rituals, how I use my Verte, and the mantras I honor in my meditations please feel free to ask me here in the comment section.
with love and patience,
You have been invited by the beautiful team At Baby & Company in Seattle to join for a day of Beauty this weekend.
11 to 5 on Saturday, November 11
Yeah - what they said... (they put it so nicely I couldn't resist a direct share: here or below)
At Baby & Company we're absolute advocates for the mind & body benefits of cannabis, especially products containing pain-relieving CBD derivatives. CBDs (or, cannabidiols) are the chemical compounds in a marijuana plant that contain non-psychoactive, but highly soothing properties with a range of medical applications from treating anxiety, inflammation, epilepsy, arthritis, and more.
Sun Valley–based beauty brand Verte Essentials also believes in the power of the plant. They've launched a CBD-infused line of oils with a transformative, holistic ethos that treats skin from the inside out. To celebrate, we're hosting cofounder Blair Lauren Brown for an in-store clinic featuring Verte Essentials' signature line, plus beauty treatments from esthetician Carla Butts of Parlor 11.
Stop by the store from 11 to 5 on Saturday, November 11 to try the spa line and ask Blair all your burning questions. And let us add you to the list via RSVP@babyandco.us.
We had to have our own little party to test out the new Elevate Oil in a martini...and there just aren't words. Spicy Chai notes on a light chilled vodka garnished with cardomom pods and cloves. The base of our oils is such purely processed coconut oil that it leaves it flavorless but for our spices and botanicals. The oil also coats your lips with a touch of spice and a smoothness of a fuller bodied fell. So I guess there are words...delish!
