Beginning in August 2022, we are holding space for a
beautiful new offering grounded in healing and creativity:
PLANT MAGIC JOURNAL.
Over the past two plus years, it has been increasingly more challenging to find our center and to sustain our balance from that grounded place. We have all needed to nurture our mental and physical health more than ever if we are to be strong, vibrant, and feel that deep connection to our best self.
Come back home to yourself with the
magic of plants, creativity + connection
Plant Magic Journal is designed to be custom fit to your needs, your schedule, your body—your life. The natural world does have the greatest healing powers for us to restore physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It honestly isn’t magic, it just feels that way.
We have chosen to center our work around the making of a rich, inspiring journal which will serve—not only as a fabulous place to play, record notes, and experiment with mixed media techniques throughout the workshop—it will continue to be a superb resource to you in the months and years following the course as it is made and designed by YOU and thus, the information within it is completely tailored to your exact needs, preferences and interests.
In addition to the monthly offerings, there will be spontaneous live art journal jams, plus a host of wildly fun creative journaling activity. Our community is abundant with people who have years of experience working with essential oils; they will be on hand to share their knowledge, love of plants and best practices.
Our goal is that you have everything you need to be empowered on this self-paced study.
WHAT: a fun, creative, informative, and playful twelve-month offering to nurture a fluency with the power of essential oils and develop a creative journaling practice. This combo can be powerfully life-changing in the very best of ways (read: magical!)
WHERE: Squamlove Community
- A creative online community without any of the noise or distraction of ads or algorithms
- A place for conversations, sharing videos, posting our work in galleries, chats, DMs
- A safe space that is welcoming to ALL who wish to show up with kindness and curiosity
WHEN: August 1 2022 – July 31, 2023
Why twelve months? This allows us the space, grace, measured pace. It allows us to go in deeply to the many powerful ways of using oils for our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being. Time is needed for true understanding and having direct experience. Time is also necessary if we are to develop respect and appreciation for these precious, sacred oils.
All the class materials and videos are available to you 24/7 and you can watch as often as you like.
Through out each month, all year long, we have the opportunity to share our work, our discoveries, and connect with people from all around the world who are keen to put health and creativity at the center of their life.
Because mental and physical and emotional health is at an all-time premium. Clearly, we are living through a time of social and political upheaval in the midst of a global pandemic and climate change. And this is on top of the normal stresses and strains of daily life. If we are going to have a positive impact on the world at large, we must ensure our own well-being is actively nurtured.
There is no charge for the offering itself.

The secrets are in the plants.
To elicit them, you have to love them enough.
