This was originally a post-debate post back when the reality of this administration seemed like a distant nightmare. Now we're here. Take care of yourselves, my dears. We are in for the long war, not just the battle. I need you to show up well-rested for the riot.
first, breaking baths & rituals. some of your herbal allies are sage, hyssop, cleaver, mugwort, & rosemary. smoke, wash, sprinkle, do whatever you need to clear yourself before you sleep. you absolutely do not need to take it with you.
afterward bring the sweetness back in. sip, breathe in or apply something sweet and calming like lavender, jasmine, calendula, or rose before bed tonight.
and listen to any instinct that tells you to ring sea salt around your bed.
