In many ways, the tinc botanica lifestyle I am cultivating is the ultimate passion project for me: that is, I believe in and care about it so much, that in a perfect world, I would be building my tinc brand full time. I derive SO much joy from learning about oils and plants and ways to empower my family by making our own apothecary and living a lifestyle as low-tox as possible 💖🌿
But I have a confession.
Between my many other projects (I’m a teacher and teacher trainer, which I’m blessed to say I also thoroughly enjoy ❤️), raising my two babes, and LIFE, I am finding a true irony is happening:
I make and use tincs because they are a part of a self care experience that I deeply care about, BUT doing every single step of the business by myself can very easily become overwhelming 🙃 and incredibly, creates a stronger need for self care than I had prior to starting my business. Pretty ironic, eh?
SO. Let me be clear: I am NOT in the slightest bit saying I’m giving up on tinc botanica. No way! But I am explaining why I do not have a shop button on any of my social media platforms, why I have stopped posting on Insta and FB daily, and why I haven’t opened my Etsy shop yet.
Still…the operative word here is “yet” 😉
I will indeed get there when the time is right, friends! But for now, in an effort to align my vision with my practice, I am committing to keep my website and social media presence super low key.
On the one hand, I’m keeping myself plenty busy exploring the plant world and educating myself about the medicine in the earth all around us. On the other, I’m making smarter choices about how I use my time.
I aim to love what I do so much that it doesn’t feel like work…and you know what? Giving myself the gift of taking things down a wee notch feels sooooo good.
In the meantime, freeing up some of that daily social media time, is creating space for SUPER COOL things in the very near future! I can’t wait to share all about it…when I have time of course, HAHA 😂
Anyway, I love you all! Thanks so much for your energy and support. It takes a village, and I’m so blessed you are in mine 🥰
