What can one say about the majesty of the ocean and how its very life is being threatened in the same sentence? And yet, that is the situation we find ourselves in, the tension and contradiction we must hold in these times.

As Rachel Carson wrote in her beautiful tome to the ocean, The Sea Around Us:

“It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life arose, should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life”(xiii).

Water is life and the ocean gave birth to all forms of biological life on this planet. Strega Tree Apothecary offers this bracelet and the ritual that comes with it to honor the ocean and allow the wearer be reminded of its beauty and majesty, to hold the ocean in highest regard. There is a prescriptive ritual included at the request of the Kontomble that will take you to the water’s edge to lean more deeply into this connection.

“The living ocean drives planetary chemistry, governs climate and weather, and otherwise provides the cornerstone of the life-support system for all creatures on our planet, from deep sea-starfish to desert sagebrush. That’s why the ocean matters. If the sea is sick, we’ll feel it. If it dies, we die. Our future and state of the ocean are one.” ~Marine Biologist Sylvia A. Earle in response to being asked “Who needs the Ocean?”

The ocean was seeded by a meteor strike that birthed the beings of the ocean. In honoring the ocean, we are honoring the intelligence of the kontomble. The kontomble are the element of water and the elemental beings of water. When we allow the ocean to speak, to have a voice, we support the aliveness of this fertile space.

This bracelet is for women who have wombs, and for anyone who honors women’s wombs. This bracelet is for a connection to the kontomble and for honoring the ocean.

*the bracelet is composed of larimar, amazonite, fish bone, copper, iron, apatite, rainbow moonstone, blue moldavite and meteorite.

The bracelet comes in two sizes, large 7.35 inches diameter and small 7 inches diameter.
