Our large silk verde obscuro gift set includes one large scrunchie and a large 3 x 8in relaxation sachet filled with organic lavender. We use 100% charmeuse silk and then botanically dye our material with minerals and a local medicinal plant called goldenrod.
About our materials and methods: Lavender is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties. It can be used as a meditation tool, for rest, to relieve headaches and reduce stress.
Goldenrod is also considered a weed and wild flower. It can be used to treat head colds, inflammation and to clear the sinuses. You can make a tea out of both the leaves and the flower. If you are foraging these plants, please be aware of the bees and avoid cutting too many in the same area. Although they grow plentiful, we need to be conscious of the tiny wildlife that benefit from its gifts too. We like to cut the branches that have already fallen over. We use the same dye bath for our material, and it makes a range of colors, from vibrant yellows to deep forest greens. Please consult a medical professional before adding a new herb to your diet.
Care: Our materials are handwashed several times in hypoallergenic clear soap, hung dry and then steamed before packaging. Your scrunchie can be hand washed with cold water and mild soap then hung dry. Warm iron if needed on the silk/delicate setting. Shake or rub your sachet together to "awaken" the lavender.
