These beautiful, (very) sharp Juniper Bundles were lovingly harvested and wrapped by First Nations community members from Running Bear Medicines Camp based in what is known as Minitonas-Bowsman, Manitoba on Očhéthi Šakówiŋ, Michif Piyii (Métis), Cree and Anishinabewaki territories.
Words on Juniper and their camp from the beautiful people behind Running Bear Medicines;
"Wild Juniper has a wonderful aroma.
Juniper: protective energy, and is used for cleansing and prosperity. Juniper berries are popular in good luck charms, Juniper is best used for blessing a new venture or dwelling, and inviting in abundance."
"We are a community of First Nations. Thank you for supporting our community members and our families. All our medicines are harvested with positive energy, prayer and the offering of tobacco. We take what we use, leave the rest in the ground to grow for the next generation. We give what we take. You are gifting for the cost of harvesting and helping our community.. you are not purchasing the medicines themselves as they belong to Mother Earth and not ourselves. We are the caretakers of it all. You are paying for our fuel, our food while harvesting, repairing our vehicles, helping with marriage ceremonies, clothing our children, etc."
