The acorn is an auspicious symbol; the acorn 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 into fruition and begin the healing process for all Indigenous people's 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 to Use
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. 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.
Made in Guelph, Ontario by LJ Turtle. Please read more about the maker, Lisa Byers, and her connection to Residential Schools here.
Please note that the Pride and Indigenous History Month promo code does not apply to acorns as they are a donation.
