Wandering Sage Hydrosol Mist

Ms. Tea

Wandering Sage Hydrosol Mist

$20.00

A highly aromatic and otherworldly ritual mist of hydrosols and flower essences of desert and mountain landscapes. To protect and fortify the energetic field while remembering our ancestors and connecting to a well of deep inner wisdom. Wandering Sage unites several kinds of sages found throughout the desert basin, all homegrown in Ms. Tea founder Levi's native pollinator garden. The plants in this bottle represent a protected container...a way to commune with the nonhuman world and remember the land that holds us.

2fl oz

All organically homegrown: black sage (salvia mellifera), hummingbird sage (salvia spathacea), white sage (salvia apiana), clary sage (salvia sclarea), baja pitcher sage (lepechinia hastata) steam distilled in a traditional copper alembic with pure spring water and creosote, sagebrush, and creeping sage flower essences

Spray onto clean skin and hair, into the bath, or on your bed pillow. Use as a ritual mist to access intentional space for meditation, spells, dreamwork, and visioning.

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.
