Essence of Nature Sacred Passage Kit
ESSENCE OF NATURE – SACRED PASSAGE END OF LIFE CARE KIT
If you are caring for someone at the end of life here is a care-fully prepared kit of beautiful natural products to massage, anoint and wash, plus an essential oil blend to create a calm and beautiful aromatic atmosphere.
This kit has arisen out of my experiences of being with people at the end of life, as they die and after death. This is a truly sacred passage. One that we all will face at some stage.
Society’s disconnection from nature has only added to the anxiety and unknowingness of death. By losing sight of the rhythms and seasons of nature, we have lost sight of our own being, our own life transitions. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
We can call on nature to help people dying and those being left behind. We can find allies in nature to help support us in times of need. We can connect with the energy, the Archeus, that flows through all things. From nature we come and to nature we go, and thus calling on the energies of plants to be present during and following this transition can help us feel more connected, less afraid, less alone.
This kit has been created to bring nature into the room for the sacred passage at the very end of life. Every botanical ingredient has been chosen for its beneficial properties, its energetics and for its place in ritual and care throughout time. The items in this set offer a way that we can contribute to the care of someone as they pass and help remove the sense of helplessness we can feel, by creating connection to each other, living and dead, and to nature.
All of the items in this kit can be used for natural burials and every purchase honours our place in nature by supporting plant conservation and habitat restoration.

As we care for people, how deeply are we observing them? Digging beneath the diagnosis to observe the nature of the person and the patterns that presents? My father taught me tough lessons on this in the place where dementia and pain get blurred.
