Herb Filled Ornaments
This year we made our own, herbal infused ornaments and it was such a fun, and meaningful activity! All you need are dried flowers, herbs and grasses, these can even be collected and foraged from your property or neighborhood, and empty ornaments like these .
Letting my children express themselves with nature through art has always been one of my favorite pastimes. It’s simple, connective and sensory.
For our ornaments we used Lemongrass, White Sage, St John’s Wort, Rosebuds, Lavender, Jasmine flowers, and Purple Gomphrena.
Lavender is calming and fragrant, White Sage keeps negative energy at bay, Lemongrass is balancing and stimulating, and St John’s Wort expel’s unwanted spirits and energy.
Once we had all of our herbs and flowers, we just mixed and filled to our heart’s content! There’s no right or wrong way to do this! You can add tissue paper, glitter, really anything that makes you happy.
Roxie and I said a little blessing over hers, calling in a more balance 2021 and a winter solstice marked by rootedness, continued health and protection, before adding it to our tree.
Let me know if you decide to add this ritual to your holiday celebrations and what you add into yours!
