Sojourn’s Holistic Shop offers a variety of precious, unique holistic products that are hand selected just for our community. Our retail shop was designed so you can take healing products home with you to infuse into your daily life. Step away from the hustle and bustle of the city and into our sanctuary to experience the healing energy of Sojourn Healing Collective.
- Sage/Palo Santo (Smudge Kit)
Palo Santo is a sacred wood grown in South America. It is known for its energetic cleansing properties, similar to Sage and Cedar. It keeps energy grounded and clear. Sage is used to 'wash off' the outside world when one enters ceremony or other sacred space.
Using a candle, match or lighter, light the palo santo and sage bundle to clear your home, office, or other space. Wave the smoke into all corners, across doorways and into shadow spaces. Once the space is cleared, allow the sage bundle to either burn out or gently press it out in your heat-proof shell or container. The smoke is used to bless, cleanse and heal the person or object. Also known as "Smudging".
All three of these items (sage, palo santo, and an abalone shell) are sold as a Smudge Kit in our boutique for $20.
- Oracle/Angel Cards
There are several ways to use Angel and Oracle Cards. These card decks help you connect with your angels (both guardian and Archangels), as well as your higher self. You can clear the energy of the cards through Reiki or a smudge kit. Spread the deck of cards out and without thinking too much, choose the one (or several) cards that call to you. These are your messages from above. Most card decks come with a guidebook to provide a clearer meaning than the card itself.
At Sojourn, we have a variety of Angel and Oracle Card Decks, ranging $22-$55.
Crystals are a healing modality derived from ancient times when the Sumerians made magic potions from quartz. The Greeks wore amethyst as amulets and the Chinese used jade in medicine. In modern times, crystals are a great tool to utilize during yoga or meditation practice. They are a great reminder of your intentions and goals as they are attached to many metaphysical properties and meanings.
We offer a variety of crystals and stones in our boutique, ranging in size, form and price ($3-$100).
Essential oils, whether applied directly on your body or with a diffuser, are yet another way to create a lighter energy within. Certain oils/scents are connected with different energetic centers within each of us and they can help release stagnant energy, as well as promote calmness. It's important that you utilize high quality oils to reap their healing benefits.
Sojourn offers a variety of quality, locally sourced essential oils/blends from local San Diego artisans. Prices vary.
A pendulum is a tool used to communicate via your higher self/your guides. This tool can be used to aid in making decisions about your healing and your life in general. To begin, you first calibrate your pendulum by dangling it and asking it to show you a 'YES'. The pendulum will swing a certain way. You repeat this process asking it to show you a 'No'. Relaxing your mind and allowing the pendulum to do the work is the key.
Our pendulums range from $14-$42.
If you think about it, candles are used for light, celebrations, and calmness. So it's no wonder why candles are a great way to calm the energy in your space and/or raise its vibrations. However, not just any candle is capable of this vibrational increase. Be sure that they are soy based and reflect colors or properties in alignment with your spiritual journey.
At Sojourn, we feature soy based candles by local artisans, Muse Bath and Jax Kelly. These candles are reiki infused and contain a crystal at the bottom, so you have a beautiful crystal to keep once the candle has burned completely. Ranging from $12-$24
Journaling is a great way to let out any and all thoughts that you've got within. Common ways to utilize a journal are writing down your weekly or monthly intentions, affirmations, and a means to manifest your deepest desires and dreams. It doesn't have to be anything fancy, we offer ours from $12 - $18.
Malas are a strand of 108 beads. The 'Guru Bead' is used as a breathing tool during meditation and prayer. Mala necklaces and bracelets have grown popular in the yoga world as means to infuse one's practice. Mala bracelets can also be used for the same purpose.
