I'd like to take a moment to introduce Plum Brilliance and what it means.
Plum Brilliance is the story of a small girl. A feral child allowed to explore the idyllic rural setting of southern California. She was encouraged to climb through sage covered coyote trails. She became the queen of granite tables that filled with fairy pools in spring. She was transformed into a water sprite in creeks full of teeny tiny frogs and crawdads. Her loyal subjects were the faithful dogs that kept watch and her confidants, the plants. She would come home exhausted, dirty, scratched, scraped and drenched in the perfume of sagebrush but rarely “lonely”.
Plum Brilliance is the story of a woman. A wife and the mother of three small children. A woman trying to keep up in a society that has no time for creeks, coyote trails and magic. Filled with an ache to return to the plants and earth that shaped her early years, she began crafting. She wove bits of pine with sweet wild rose into ethereal body oils. She layered juniper and sage into earthy, grounding soaps. She found when she anointed herself with these bits of alchemy she could connect back to the natural world regardless of where she was.
Plum Brilliance is the story of you. Sage, juniper and pine speak. It is soft, it is subtle, but when you listen you can hear their voices. They speak of connection and belonging. We are drawn to nature and nature is drawn to us, the world is within us. Plum Brilliance is for you, wanting to connect with the coyote trails, the fairy pools and the creeks with teeny tiny frogs. Plum Brilliance is a state of being and a simple reminder of the deep wisdom you already possess.
