Forest Ritual Hydrosol Mist

Ms. Tea

Forest Ritual Hydrosol Mist

$20.00

Commune with the spirit of the mountain and ancient conifer forests. Move the blood where it needs to go. With an aroma of citrus and pine, incense cedar transports you deep into the forest, while pennyroyal helps move stagnation. Essences of ancient oak, usnea lichen, chrysocolla, and green fluorite harmonize in this grounding blend to deepen our attunement to the vibrations and consciousness of the Earth, allowing us to speak our highest truth and foster mutual protection and reciprocity. These ancient tree, lichen, and stone beings offer their protective forest magic to connect with deep time, clarify intention, and cleanse the energetic field of unwanted influences.

2fl oz

Made with organic California-grown pennyroyal (mentha pulegium) and incense cedar (calocedrus decurrens) steam distilled in a traditional copper alembic with pure distilled water, essence of usnea, cedar, black oak, pine, chrysocolla, green fluorite, coastal fog, rain

Spray onto clean skin, your altar space, or bed pillow. Use as a ritual mist or insect repellant to honor the space you hold in the landscape.

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.
