Made in Salt Lake City by Marina Atherton. We can’t seem to keep our shelves stocked with enough of these ceramic mushrooms. Made in several different varieties such as Morels, Brown Cap, and Fly Agaric, these ceramic mushrooms are hand-crafted and hand-painted in glaze. These are perfect for decorating your potted houseplants or even organic additions to your cabinet of curiosities.
INNERSPACISM’S FIERY PALO SANTO CANDLE
Crafted in Salt Lake City by our in house makers, Lilian and Laine Henrie for Innerspacism. The scent of the Fiery Palo Santo candle takes you back to the comforting, woodsy smell of sitting next to a campfire with a hint of spice overflowing from the steam of your hot toddy. This candle is hand poured and made with 100% soy wax for a clean burn, a cotton braided wick, and essential oils, which are known to be safer and healthier than artificial fragrance oils. As stated in a blog post from labelsandlaquer.com, “This candle is only 1.5 ounces, but it is so strong! You can light it for just a few minutes and blow it out and have the room smell like palo santo for hours. So, ever since I added this to my collection of palo santo, I smell this lovely scent as soon as I walk in the door, just like I wanted!”
INNERSPACISM’S CERAMIC PINCH BOWL + SPOON
Made in Salt Lake City by our in-house maker, Olivia Henrie, these ceramic pinch bowls and spoons make a perfect addition to anyone's household. These work great for holding and scooping your salts, sugars, and even have use beyond the kitchen, such as mixing your clay masks or holding bath salts. Each bowl and spoon is handmade, each with their own individual characteristics, crafted with all natural elements featuring an off-white clay and a glossy white glaze. These ceramics are oven and dishwasher safe.
Meet our favorite local gardener, Siri Elaine Rawle with Seedy Gardens. Siri found herself constantly throwing out herbs and plants that she found valuable, so she began making batches of locally harvested smudge bundles with what would otherwise be thrown out. Most of her bundles contains herbs such as white sage, desert sage, Utah juniper, lavender, holy basil, and so on.
Along with spending most of her time tending to bees and her family, our local beekeeper, Susie, has created a line of products known as “Susie Bee Good Honey.” This line offers several types of bee products, such as hand-harvested honey, reusable beeswax food wraps, balms, and various types of candles — her beeswax tapers, an Innerspacism favorite, are perfect for setting the mood, be it at the dinner table or in the bedroom. This isn’t even the best part about using beeswax candles! Burning beeswax naturally purifies the air by releasing negative ions when lit, which then attach to dust and pollen. Experience all of these benefits and pick up one or a few of Susie Bee Good Honey’s taper candles in our shop.
INNERSPACISM’S RESURRECTION PLANTS
Sustainably harvested from New Mexico, this plant can remain in its dormant stage for up to 50 years without water. Throughout history, these highly adaptive plants would dry up and blow in the wind until they came upon water. Then, they would rapidly open and feast upon the water until it was gone. This plant makes a very thoughtful gift for one that is mourning a loss or for that friend that simply can’t seem to keep any of their houseplants alive. All you have to do is place this plant with the root ball facing downwards in a bowl of water and watch it transform from a dormant brown ball into a lush fern in a matter of days. The coolest thing about this is if you forget to water it, you don’t have to worry about it, it’ll just close back up into a ball where it will remain dormant until it meets with water again.
INNERSPACISM’S INCENSE TRIOS
Sustainably sourced by Matthew Tilley out of Oregon, immerse yourself with our favorite and purest forms of smudging. This Incense trio is made of Palo Santo incense wood, Braided Sweetgrass, and Juniper incense wood. These are known for their purifying and cleansing properties. To burn, light your stick or braid and hold at a 45 degree angle, pointing the tip down toward the flame. Allow it to burn for 30 seconds, then blow out and move it about your space (just do not leave the incense unattended). Find this trio and other incense online and in the store.
Shop all of these online or in our brick + mortar!
