As always, we highly appreciate if you bring your own containers to take home your herbs! Mason/canning jars are *perfect* for this, as they can be used in a variety of ways even after your herbs are gone, and are cheap, airtight, sterilizable, and last forever and a day if you take care of them! We encourage the use and re-use of containers to cut down on waste for us, and the the waste that harms the environment in general. We will package herbs in any clean, dry container, including but not limited to:

:: Canning/mason jars. (Just had to say it again 😉 )

:: Fancy, witchy, corked glass jars.

:: Recycled food jars (Glass sauce jars are perfect! Baby food jars and spice jars tend to be too small for the full ounce that is our minimum sale, but multiple jars may work!) that have been thoroughly washed and dried. The dishwasher is perfect for sterilizing jars to be recycled!

:: Paper bags that can be sealed in some way (We can seal with tape or staples if you are okay with it.)

:: Tin cans with lids.

:: Ziploc bags.

:: Drawstring muslin/cloth bags.

:: Be creative with your recycling! As long as it is clean and dry, it counts!

As always, if you have any questions pertaining to herbalism or the use of herbs, don’t hestitate to e-mail me at Courtney@thesojo.com, or stop by when I am here in the morning for a chat! ❤ See you soon!

Sunday, March 12th: Knock Knock!

In this two hour presentation/workshop, Edward Zula talks with participants about the different ways spirits of our loved ones communicate with us from the other side. “Sometimes they knock, play with lights, surprise us with familiar scent, come to us in dreams, and even hide or move objects,” says Edward Zula. “But no matter what it is, we are let wondering if it is spirit and ‘what did it mean ?'” Our desire to understand these messages and find meaning in them is what inspired Edwards to offer this healing workshop. “We want to know if our loved one is just saying hello when they knock a picture off the wall, or if there’s some other meaning. It can leave us frustrated, confused, and worried, which is not very helpful if we are still processing from our grief.”

Entry is 10$ per person. Please call 252-758-7656 to reserve your spot today. Must pay in advance. Limit 20 participants
