Read about butterfly symbology below!

Baeotus Butterfly in a "floating" frame. This black plastic frame does not utilize glass panes and is instead a durable and strong elastic plastic that also retains some flexibility in order to keep your Specimen in the best condition. Pictures show the front and back of the clear framing.
NOTE: With these frames, the specimen is suspended between two layers of PET film (NOT GLASS or acrylic.) With the frailty of the butterflies, care will need to be taken to avoid damage to the specimen by touching the film. Handling these items by the plastic frame is recommended. Due to the frail nature of spread butterflies, the legs and antennae are not guaranteed.

Frame can be opened, if needed, to adjust specimen, but do it carefully and understand that it may damage the specimen and/ or the plastic.
Frame "feet" can be removed in order to use this as a hanging display.

Avoid exposure to extreme temperatures, humidity, and direct sunlight.

Pictures are taken in natural lighting. Please note that the coloring may appear slightly different when viewed in different lighting.

We source from conservatories, rearing projects and through ethical collecting methods that support native habitats in Thailand, in-turn providing rural villages income and an alternative to slash and burn agriculture.


BUTTERFLY SYMBOLOGY

One of the most symbolic insects, butterfly symbolism represents personal transformation. If you happen to see the butterfly as your spirit animal, pay some attention to the areas in your life that might require a deep change or makeover. As the case may be, butterflies encourage you to be thoughtful toward your personal growth and expansion, as well as the splendor of life’s endless unfolding. A significant message communicated by the butterfly concerns our ability to tackle necessary changes with elegance and lightness.
Butterflies are considered one of the most emblematic animals; there are several fascinating meanings associated with them. Primarily, they are associated with allegories of transformation and change. Butterflies are a lucky charm during cycles of change within your life and personality.

When the butterfly enters into your life, there is the possibility that you might be going through or expecting changes in your life. The change butterfly symbolism brings to your life is more internal than those in your environment. They could be associated with your perspective on a subject, features of your temperament, or particular habits. Personal change is symbolic of the butterfly allegory.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes! We do custom orders. Message me via etsy to discuss the details and work up a quote.

What's the quality of ingredients utilized?

We use 100% from Nature Ingredients. The majority of our herbs are organic and ethically wildcrafted and foraged locally. The rest are typically garden grown in our medicinal garden. We do outsource when needed and always choose quality, certified organic sources. We try to utilize our local small business owners but do have several things that are shipped from non local small family farms.

What's the lowdown on the butters?

We use Fair Trade, Raw and Organic Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Mango Butter. We use unrefined butters as this keeps all the vitamins, minerals and other natural properties of the butters intact. Our cocoa butter is non deodorized as the process of deodorizing (removing the naturally occurring soft cocoa scent) will destroy the antioxidants that naturally occur in the butter.

Where's the chemicals?

Free from chemicals! Well, sort of. Technically, Chemicals make up all matter. That means stating that we use no chemicals would be a lie as the scientific definition of chemical means that most everything (other than "energy" itself) IS a chemical. But we know what you mean and we ARE Free from Parabens, Pesticides, Petroleum, Phthalates, Sulfates, SLS, Artificial Colors, Synthetic Fragrances, and all the other yucky stuff.

Do you do animal testing?

My cockatoo wants nothing to do with my herbal goodness so all animals are safe. We only test on friends and family!

Any allergens?

Of course. There's a wide range of allergies and sensitivities out there and it's possible to be allergic to any ingredient used as well as cross allergies. Some of the butters and oils used can trigger nut allergies. We recommend messaging us directly for more info prior to buying if you're aware of any major allergens. Allergies can start at any stage and age so if an unsuspected allergy occurs when using a product, discontinue use immediately and consult your doctor.

How's it made?

Everything is handmade to order in small batches using fair trade, organic, raw and wildcrafted ingredients whenever possible. This ensures your batch is fresh and the highest quality. We put our heart and soul into our products and trust that the plants will offer their healing to all that they touch.

Smoke free and pet friendly?

Your products are artisan made and handcrafted in an earth conscious, plant loving, cruelty free, organic, always made with love and intention home. We are a smoke free "facility" and have one feathered friend; a cockatoo named Cotton. He's a 35 year old Goffin's cockatoo, a rescue, and recently lost his life mate to a tumor. He lives his best life upstairs, enjoys children's songs, fresh fruits and veggies, and Walker Texas ranger.

Uh oh! I'VE MOVED and my package was delivered to my old address. What can we do?

Please ensure that your profile is updated with your new address prior to placing any purchase orders. Additionally, make sure you go online or in person to the USPS and fill out a mail forwarding request. You can do that here:
https://moversguide.usps.com
Once a shipping label has been created and a package is in the mail, we no longer have access to it.
If a package is returned to us, it will require postage to be purchased again in order to be shipped a second time. We ask that you contact us with your new address and update all your information. It will be your responsibility to purchase new postage and a processing fee may be required.

Do you ship internationally?

We are suspending overseas shipments during the pandemic. Thank you for understanding.
Yes! However please understand that you are responsible for being aware of and paying your import taxes at time of pick up if your country requires them. We will not be responsible for refunding any orders or shipping fees due to complications surrounding this issue.

Your ingredient list is incomplete/ missing on your online listings

Unfortunately, I am bombarded constantly by other shops, herbalists, and companies for my personal and family recipes. It is impossible for me to know who is genuinely just curious and who intends to steal and recreate my offerings. Due to the fact that this has happened to me with direct competitors, I do not share my ingredient for nonallergic or personal aversion specific requests.
However, if you are a budding herbal ally and are interested in knowledge, I am tickled pink to be part of your learning process!

MY ORDER WAS LOST IN THE MAIL OR STOLEN OUT OF MY MAILBOX! NOW WHAT?

Please understand that once your order ships we are no longer in control of what happens to your items.
If an item was lost in the mail and you paid for priority shipping we will file a claim, as soon as the claim is accepted we will issue a full refund. Please note if a package is marked as delivered we can not file a claim.
If an item was lost in the mail and you selected ground shipping at checkout we can not file a claim. At this point in time we will submit a mail recovery request with the USPS.

My Salve/Balm melted in the mail!

During the summer, warm months, or warm weather:
Please remove your balms from the mailbox or porch as soon as they are delivered. We can not control shipping times or the weather (although we wish we could) and can not refund, replace or accept returns of melted balms. If your balms melt, using a handheld mixer can be useful, and just place it in a cool, dark location, or to quickly reset them, pop them in the fridge for 5-15 minutes. The balm quality should not be affected. Also, the balms may whiten in cooler temps; just give a stir! This will also not affect the quality. Thank you for your understanding.

If I drink the psychic tea will I become psychic? How do the "magic teas" work? What results can I expect?

There's no strong psychotropic. It's more of a gentle assist in opening the third eye, Sahasrara, and Agnya. I'm an herbalist so I choose to work with a combination of metaphysical attributes and ayurvedic. Some herbs in the psychic blend have very mild sedative properties, mostly to aid in relaxing and accessing the energies. I like to say "they're herbs, not magic." These blends offered are to simply help you access and expand your own magical intent. They have historical, traditional, and mythological ties to specific powers, but wouldn't necessarily invoke powers you do not have or haven't yet cultivated. These tea blends are lovely mild alternatives of safe herbs to open the gateway to accessing what you desire.

My cauldron has wax residue on it! What's the deal?

Cast iron products are traditionally made by casting melted iron ore into a mold.
Lost-wax process, also called cire-perdue, is a method of metal casting in which a molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created by means of a wax model. The wax is then melted off. Some wax residue may remain, especially in crevices and design features. To remove any remaining wax, you can gently scrape it away with a tool or your fingernail. Clean with a damp cloth and dry well to prevent any rusting.
