Dream Keeper Ritual Body Oil

Ms. Tea

Dream Keeper Ritual Body Oil

$15.00

Traverse liminal channels, access vivid dreams, call forth visionary power, and walk with guides and ancestors with this magical blend. Organic cold-pressed olive oil is steeped for months with aromatic whole plants of mugwort, yarrow, and sage to create a body oil that helps ease tension, ground you back into yourself, and connect to all the goodness. A way to reset and relax our delicate nervous systems, call our energy back from negative patterns, and hold ourselves softly, the practice of self-massage with body oils is a deeply transformative practice that can become a powerful self-care ritual.

2fl oz

All organic California-grown: mugwort (artemisia douglasiana), black and white sage leaf (salvia mellifera & apiana), yarrow leaf and flowers (achillea millefolium), cold pressed organic olive oil

Massage into the lower abdomen to relieve cramps and ground yourself. Rub onto neck and shoulders to ease tension from overwork or anxiety. Apply to pulse points or all over.

Founded by Levi Leigh Barringer (they/them), a bioregional herbalist, medicine maker, and visual creative residing in Petaluma, California, Ms. Tea is an apothecary of handcrafted and ethically sourced herbs from local farms and herb growers, as well as Levi’s own medicinal herb garden. Levi listens and tends to plants to foster regenerative and reciprocal relationships with the deep magic of human and more-than-human worlds…and Levi has supported people from all walks of life seeking to build relationships with plants and work with herbs in various ways.

Levi’s plant path started with their first teacher: the land. What began in childhood as climbing trees in the Wabash River watershed in southern Indiana later became a deeply felt sense of place when they first experienced the Sonoran Desert bloom in 2012. Over time, Levi has committed to nurturing relationships with lands, waters, their protectors…and weaving those teachings into their medicine and work. Ms. Tea started as a play on words: a slippery pun, an ode to our primordial origins in water. The ancestral memory held in streams, rivers, ocean.

In 2016, Levi began shifting their herbal practice towards mutual aid and organizing by sending herbs to water protectors at Standing Rock. Collective care is a cornerstone of Levi’s practice, not as an act of generosity, but as a way to cultivate more resilient communities. They currently work with other local herbalists as part of Bay Area Herbal Response Team to help further their mission to connect low income folks and communities impacted by systemic injustice with herbal consults and education.

Levi’s craft is informed by their roots as a rural queer and navigating historical trauma and grief through their own somatic work. Herbalism came to Levi through land connection, field botany, and backcountry camping along desert washes, alpine ranges, and riparian waterways. They left their full-time design job in 2017 to pursue herbalism and find ways to deepen their creative practice.

Levi studied as a vitalist herbal practitioner with course work in Astro herbalism with the School of Evolutionary Herbalism, and expanded their practitioner skills with Blue Otter School of Herbal Medicine. Levi studied holistic protocols, advanced formulation, herbal safety, and ethics with Wild Current Herbalism, with whom they are currently taking on a rigorous clinical mentorship.
