We are so proud to be a part of the indigenous culture of the Americas and here you can see the beautiful partnership we have with other tribes. All of the skincare items here are handmade at Alywillow (and are pure plant ingredients) and All of the sage, smudge sticks, incense, and abalone shells are supplied by Native American owned companies or families. When you purchase them here, you are supporting Native American's around the country, in Canada, and in Mexico.
These traditional smudging items are used by Indigenous people around the world, but our founder, Aliya Trinity, is part of the First Nation of the Americas and therefore traditional Native American practices are honored and respected here. These are not religious items. They are a way of life, of living a life of respect towards nature and all our relations (in our way, that means people, animals, and plants).
If you like these items, you'll probably appreciate our 'Smudging Guide' -ask for a copy. Also, we encourage you to learn more about the Adopt an Elder program for the Navajo Reservation. These elders live in some of the worst conditions of our country, where even the most basic necessities, like running water, aren't always available. We help support them and hope you will consider helping too.
