Planting Kindness is more than just a cute marketing phrase for us, it’s a way of life. We strive to be the change and make the world a better place. Today we begin our newest Planting Kindness endeavor. Every month, we will donate proceeds from the purchase of a current or new blend (we might have something in the works for June) to a different non-profit organization. This month we start with Mental Health Awareness Month, the Jed Foundation, and our Self Esteem blend.
Mental Health Awareness Month
About one in five individuals experience some form of mental illness each year. And with the pandemic and all the stressors that came with it, that number has only increased. Many wonderful organizations work to destigmatize mental illness and make mental health care more accessible to those who need it. Mental Health America has even put together a Mental Health Toolkit. It provides practical tools that everyone can use to improve their mental health.
The Jed Foundation
One of many organizations that champion mental health, The Jed Foundation works to protect emotional health and prevents suicide for our nation’s teens and young adults. They partner with high schools and colleges to strengthen their mental health, substance misuse, and suicide prevention programs and systems. Their goal is to equip young people with the tools they need to help themselves and others with mental health challenges and confidently navigate into adulthood. You can learn about the work they do here.
During the month of May, we will donate $5.00 from every purchase of our Self Esteem blend to The Jed Foundation!
Self Esteem Essential Oil Blend
While we definitely don’t think essential oils are a replacement for professional mental health care, they can be a wonderful way to support your mental health journey. And Self Esteem is just such a blend! An enticing, fresh and sweet aroma, this blend is designed to provide a boost of confidence whenever you might need one. It starts with rare Blue Tansy, which is cherished for its abilities to ease worry and melt away nervous tension. This blend also includes soothing Black Spruce, uplifting Frankincense Carterii, and calming Ho Wood. It’s available as both a blend and a pre-diluted roll-on so you can enjoy its benefits whenever you need it. Or you can use it in a personal inhaler or on an aromatherapy necklace.
Self Esteem is KidSafe, pregnancy-safe, and nursing safe.
