Firstly I'd like to say thank you so much for the massive support for the Hobgoblin Faire Collection! This was by far the biggest success in the 5 years of my little business, so thank you so much!
📌Shampoo Bars are now 3 oz at no additional cost!
📌Bog Witch Tea will be available until supplies run out so you'll be able to enjoy this brew for a bit longer.
📌Pure Morning is BACK IN STOCK in limited quantities. Sourcing sprayers is still an ongoing issue.
🎄There will not be a Winter Collection in time for the holiday season. Due to time constraints and the postal service being bogged down I wouldn't be able to guarantee the orders would be in your hands in time. However winter continues well past the holidays so I'll be releasing a cozy winter collection to be enjoyed all season long.
🎄During these difficult times I highly recommend supporting local and small businesses online for gift giving this year. I will be sharing some of my favorite artisans on my Instagram stories everyday!
🎄Be sure to check out my upcoming blog posts where I'll be sharing some of my favorite recipes that would be a great low cost option for gift giving this year. Have a great recipe you'd like to share? Email me at BalefireApothecary@gmail.com with your recipes and credit links you'd like to share.
🎄I'll be participating in SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY this year by offering some deep discounts on certain items!
🎄I'll be taking a few weeks off towards the end of the year / beginning of 2021 to refresh and also work on some side projects. The shop will be closed during that time and will not be accepting orders but I will be available to answer emails.Take a peek
I may be in the minority but winter is one of my favorite seasons. To be honest its the only other season besides autumn that I feel like a whole person. I had recently listened to an episode of Cursed and they were discussing embracing and exploring darker sides of yourself and they touched on seasons. I won't give it all away since I highly recommend this podcast but it really got me thinking about how I feel towards the end of year.
Of course this year is an anomaly dumpster fire so I feel a tad bit ... slumpy compared to years past. However I am like a kid waiting for a snow day. I adore snow, love the silence ( I'm one of those weirdos that doesn't play music in the car or wear headphones in public), how everything is blurred on the edges, softened and cozy. I am a homebody and I embrace my northern style cooking in full force. Nights are long with cold clear skies, absolute bliss.
These feelings of comfort and being huddled in will be the inspiration for the winter collection. We all need a bit of solitude, a connection to the cycle of the seasons and embracing the dark months and why its important... why its needed.
I know many are struggling with being away from their families this year and I think looking back at years past traditions can bring a bit of peace and a feeling of gratitude for what we have. Can make us excited for whats to come once things are "back to normal",
In the theme of making lemonade out of lemons, this will be the perfect time for me to read those series I've been dying to finally have time for, bake into oblivion and most importantly work on myself and pick up my hobbies and projects that I pushed aside all year.
I think another thing to take into consideration is that you don't have to come out of this years dumpster fire a newly reborn human who learned 78 new languages and recreated all those Pinterest projects. Don't feel pressured to reinvent yourself. Just do what fulfills you because just making it through this year is an accomplishment,
I'm ready to embrace these darker months ahead. I feel inspired by them. Fingers crossed for a couple days of being snowed in and wool socks galore.
