Online Orders are Still Being Processed
Restorative Aromatics is located in Philadelphia, PA and the "stay at home" order went effect on March 23rd. We will still be processing and fulfilling online orders that come in until at which point it becomes no longer feasible. I've been working from home for the past three weeks, so while I am a little stir crazy, my contact with the outside world has been minimal and I am still in good health. All of my products are handcrafted by me, in my home studio, so they are not coming from warehouses or retail locations.
My local post office has package drop off slots right by the main entrance and I am leaving the house wearing nitrile gloves and face masks while sanitizing everything in the process in order to keep myself safe. It literally takes me 30 seconds to drop off packages and I do not have to wait in line or interact with anyone. Please note that delivery times may vary once they are mailed out as the postal service is also overwhelmed at this point. There may be some additional delays with shipments of my supplies arriving on time. I am trying to anticipate my needs weeks in advance in order to keep things in stock.
Restorative Aromatics will soon be rebranding to Belladonna's Botanicals in next couple of months and will be launching a new website. I'm working hard to getting the content on the new website up and running.
I am still releasing new products on a weekly basis as my new product to do list is always about 100 items deep at any given time. My assistants: Corey (pictured right) the manager of sitting on my printer and Moon (pictured left) the VP of crinkling plastic things are hard at work assisting me in this process.
Coming Soon: Online Zoom Classes & Workshops
I am in the process of working on putting together a series of workshops and classes via Zoom, stay tuned for topics, announcements and scheduling. All classes will have a sliding scale payment fee since we are all struggling during this difficult time in human history. I've also been taking the time to enjoy several courses myself and to finish a few courses I started last year as well.
Taking Care of Ourselves
Magic and ritual have the power to help us and to heal the universal despair we are feeling as we face isolation and the disruption of our daily lives. I'd be lying if I said that I was doing great every day, because some days I am not at all doing well and its okay to feel grief for all that we are going through.
Stay home, do magic, and be well.
