HOLD THE LINE
A remedy for boundaries, for the times they (and maybe we) feel perforated and punctured, like when you hold a st. john’s wort leaf up to the sun and you see little bursts of light popping through. A protector of life-force energy, Hold the Line is a blend of st. john’s wort, motherwort, blue vervain, and yarrow to help you hold the line when you need to so you can build yourself back up and radiate from the foundation of who you are. And as a heart holder and heart strengthener, it’s for speaking up and feeling grounded in your own voice and your own wisdom. It's a reminder that you have so much to offer and that you have a right to feel protected and safe in speaking up and out…and in you doing you.
All organic: st. john's wort, motherwort, blue vervain, yarrow, and vodka
Take 2 droppers in mouth or in water/tea 2 times per day
Founded by Jennifer Patterson, a queer and trans affirming and centering, trauma-experienced herbalist and breathwork facilitator who uses plants, breath, and words to explore survivorhood, body/bodies, and healing, Corpus Ritual is the manifestation of her deep study with herbs for the last 7 years: both formal training and extensive and continued self-study.
Created in small batches in New Mexico using organic herbs sourced from farmers or grown by Jennifer herself and/or collected ethically and in small amounts, Corpus Ritual focuses on herbal remedies as powerful touchstones, and encourages us to dive deeply into relationships with plants to invite their guidance as we move through moments at the bottom of the well and beyond it too.
Jennifer believes we can only be as well as the environment around us, and that any kind of work we do in supporting another’s healing is harm reduction work. She feels it is an honor to help support people in connecting back to themselves, as they move through various states of embodiment and healing.
In addition to herbal medicine, Jennifer is a facilitator of breathwork sessions and trauma-focused writing workshops. In her private practice, she works on a sliding scale because she believes healing – that lifelong, non-linear journey – should be more accessible and within reach.
