IN A SENSE : January

Issue 04 : January 
A monthly composition of Sensory Inspiration 
January calls us to deepen into ourselves. To move slow, replenish and reset. To tune into our hearts and feel what we are being called to strengthen, put energy towards, and cultivate for the new year. We are finding these beautifully nurturing activities and practices below supportive to our inward journey, creating space to move into what's next.

We are enjoying being home this month and have found much pleasure watching live jazz concerts through the SFJazz At Home Membership. For $5 / month members have access to view four concerts a month. The shows are live if you tune in on Friday evenings, or you can watch a rebroadcast on Saturday afternoons. 
Green House is the project of Los Angeles based artist, Olive Ardizoni. As a non-binary artist they hope to create an environment with fewer boundaries for both the listener and performer, and craft songs that seek freedom through simplicity.

Six Songs For Invisible Gardens is Green House's first album. Intended to transform the listening environment and augment domestic space, the music is designed to communicate with plant life and the people who care for them.  We've been playing the album while taking a bath, having early morning tea, or painting in the afternoon.

The intoxicating scent of Mount Sapo All-Over Oil immediately drew us in. With warming notes of citrus and exotic florals, the aroma is both grounding and invigorating, and has us taking deep inhales all day long. Meant for full body use (including the face), this luxurious oil calls us to take time to care for ourselves and to experience our bodies with curiosity. With the help of Mount Sapo, we observe the ever changing landscape of our physical selves and find moments to listen to what our bodies call for.
After the indulgent and celebratory holidays we are turning to non-alcoholic beverages to ease us into the new year feeling fresh and alert. These two drink recipes each incorporate a tea from our collection. Read on to make these tasty drinks at home.

And for those cold nights when you need inner warmth, a Hojciha Hot Toddy with specialty bitters.

Hojicha Hot Toddy (1-2 Servings)
2 C Hot Water (190F)
1 Tbs Hojicha 
1 Tbs Raw Honey

Juice of 1/4 Lemon

Lately, we've been enjoying our Sleep Tea Botanical Infusion at night before bed and decided to experiment with it as a facial steam. Herbal steams are performed to open pores, release toxins and impurities, increase circulation, and relieve tension. Some of the herbs in Sleep Tea, such as Chamomile and Rose, help reduce inflammation and soothe the skin with their healing aromatics.
This steam is recommended after washing your face in the evening.

- Take your steeped tea leaves plus an additional 1 Tbs tea and place in a saucepan or heat proof bowl with 3 cups boiling water.
- With a clean towel, make a tent over your head and the bowl.
- Hold your face at a comfortable distance from the hot water for 5-10 minutes. Inhale deeply.
- When finished, pat dry and apply face products.
