The acorn is an auspicious symbol - it is the seed for a future oak tree. With this in mind, we are hopeful that the 94 calls to action resulting from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report from 2015 will come to fruition and begin the healing process for all Indigenous people across Turtle Island.
The Cycle of Ceremonies project is a series of workshops geared towards First Nations who have never had any kind of language or cultural upbringing - little to no exposure to the traditional longhouse community. We want to be able to bridge the gap we see in the community in terms of our ceremonies and culture, provide a safe environment to learn about ceremonies, sacred and sensitive topics, some of the language involved, ask questions and get clarification from knowledgeable community members and faithkeepers.
How the funds will be used
After the cost of supplies and labour has been deducted funds will go to the language project and will be used for resource development and facilitator fees in order to provide the best possible experience for those wanting to re-connect, re-claim and establish their sense of identity as Ogwehoweh people.
About the acorn diffuser
Made in Guelph, Ontario, no two acorns are alike! Each differs in size and colour. You will receive a randomly chosen colour - you may indicate a colour preference at check-out, but unfortunately we can't guarantee colour preferences. Each acorn includes an information card that describes how to use the diffuser acorn. Handcrafted with a foraged acorn top and hand-felted 'acorn', this aromatherapy diffuser is great for hanging in your closet, in a window, on a tree, or on your rear-view mirror - and of course as a gift!
How the acorn diffuser works
Simply add 1 drop of your favourite essential oil or LJ Turtle blend to the felt ball and allow to soak in. Re-apply as needed. Watch an acorn video here.

A note about shipping
Due to the fragile nature of these acorns, they will be shipped in a box - which costs $15 (even if only 1 acorn is ordered; I can ship 50 acorns for approximately the same cost - please consider making a group purchase with family and friends).
