BEYOND THE GARDEN GATE....March arrives this week with the promise of spring pursed on the poetic petals of crocus, daffodil, tulips and iris. An emerald carpet emerges from the rain-soaked earth, studded with violets and lily of the valley; basal rosettes dimple the flower beds hither and yon in vivid greens and vibrant chartreuse.  A collective sigh of relief escapes from the earth and all its inhabitants – including us humans, as if in our genetic programming there yet persists the doubt that spring would come again.


Join us on the other side of the garden gate this month as we dig into all the possibilities that spring promises. Magic blooms and twines in the garden of our soul, inspiring our creative minds and awakening our hearts to new possibilities.


"Is the spring coming?" he asked.

"What is it like?"

"It is the sun shining on the rain

and the rain falling on the sunshine."

~ The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnett


Our featured tale of enchantment this month is The Secret Garden. This beloved novel is, in fact, a sensitive and complex story, which explores how a relationship with nature can foster our emotional and physical well-being. The main characters, Mary and Colin, both suffering in their own ways from profound losses and wilting like plants in a forgotten and neglected plot (and both desperate for healing, but unable to do so alone), soon flourish as they discover the magic of nature; nurture and restore the secret garden and, at the same time, rejuvenate themselves. By tending the garden, they become stronger, healthier and happier, gain a sense of purpose and belonging, and awaken to the transformative power of hope….and magic.


The garden is a powerful metaphor for healing. By opening the door to the unknown, listening to the whispers calling you to take action, by focusing on something meaningful to YOU, by nurturing connections and planting new seeds of intention, by tending to things outside your grief or worries, you will align yourself with a wholly new story. The same magic that causes the plants to grow and the seasons to change is that which also offers us new life - if only we are willing to accept it. All it takes is the deliberate choice that we can change and once we open up to the possibility, well…truly anything can happen!


The sun is shining – the sun is shining. That is the Magic. The flowers are growing – the roots are stirring. That is the Magic. Being alive is the Magic – being strong is the Magic. The Magic is in me… It’s in every one of us.

~ The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnett

Ostara, the Spring/Vernal Equinox occurs this month on March 19th. We welcome this first official day of spring with open arms and sunny smiles!

Ostara takes its name after the Germanic Goddess of Spring, Eostre/Ostara, who was traditionally honored with festivals of fertility and renewal. The nocturnal hare, sacred familiar of Eostre, so closely associated with the moon, also represents the rebirth of nature in Spring (and boy do we know how fertile rabbits can be!  ).

You may find yourself with a little extra hop  in your step as the days now grow longer and the warmth of the sun brings you bursts of energy and a lifting of your spirits!  This time of expansive energy brings with it renewed passions, creativity and fresh opportunities. Go with that flow!

 What do you want to see growing and blossoming in your life?

Here are some ideas for working with the bright, rejuvenating energy of Ostara:

  • Plant the seeds of your artistic vision for the seasons ahead, set goals and pour your energy into manifesting those dreams.

  • Plant seeds in the garden! Connect with and honor the living essence that you've planted.

  • Get outside! Be present, inhale the wondrous beauty of spring and be open to whatever message Mother Earth may have to share with you.

  • Do some Spring cleaning. Let go of that old stagnant energy and allow space for the abundance of spring energy to flow.

  • Eat fresh, vibrant spring season foods. The farmers market is flush with beautiful choices to tempt your palette.

  • In this time of equal light and dark,remember to honor your own needs. All of this big growth energy requires an equal amount of rest, too.. Balance is key.

Our seasonal ritual perfume blends are the perfect natural perfume accent for every season. We thoughtfully craft every detail, taking into consideration the traditional correspondences of each season, and meticulously curate our scents to align accordingly. Each roller contains crystals and all are Reiki blessed for your highest and greatest good to assist you in your journey.

Wearing our ritual perfume blends during the corresponding season offers you a daily opportunity to be mindful, observant, present and to reflect upon your intentions. Allow the potent power of the botanical aromas to deepen your rituals and invoke your inner wisdom.

Our Ostara perfume roller ushers in spring with a dreamy floral bouquet of lily of the valley and lilac accented by citrusy bergamot and hints of light musk that wrap a silky ribbon around the deep green base. This limited edition perfume will be available throughout March and April or until supplies last.

Bountiful green blessings to all!
