Writes Chanelle : "∞ pipsissewa (Chimaphila umbellata) made on a sunny afternoon in the forests of black mountain, NC. the name is derived from the cree name pipsisikweu meaning, "it breaks into small pieces." this essence goes right to the head & does just that: it breaks up dense thought into clear compartments/channels. clarifies our sight & sharpens our focus; brings attention to our aural/auditory sense. refreshes our sense of self & of self-purpose. it is delicate, intricate, bright, & strong like the expert tatting of lace—the same characteristics this essence imbues us with. encourages us to bring our unique & strange qualities into the world, despite the uniformity of our surroundings. in this way, it also breaks the ideas we have into small pieces: defies our expectations of what something appears to be on the surface / diluting misconceptions or stereotypes. singular, stalwart, & lovely. the sacred & the profane. inherently feminist in its energy: femme protection, resilience, & solidarity."
