We know that Nature is good for us.
And we know that our children need her ~
As children breathe in fresh air, see vibrant colors, feel different textures and connect with busy living creatures and plants, they come to feel more alive, grounded and integral. We’d love to take our children hiking in the woods every weekend, but that isn’t practical for most of us ~ or even necessary.
There are ways to recognize how Nature is at the center of our lives. There are additional ways to bring the healing, restorative and protective gifts of Nature into our homes, lives and bodies.
We’ve put together products and services to make it easy for you to give your children these gifts.
Graybear’s Treasure Box
Let us bring Nature right to your door in a way that supports your life instead of adding another task for you to do. We’ve created a box of treasures to allow you and your child to develop an intimate relationship with Nature. This treasure box includes a guide book filled with activities, explorations and information as well as flower essences, herbs and other discoveries from the forest floor.
Your child will delight to receive mail just for them, and to open the box and discover items from the woodlands that they can touch and feel. This gift will inspire their curiosity, imagination, connection to the natural world, tactile and sensory development, and the peaceful feeling we all get when beholding something beautiful from nature.

Guide to Sweet Sleep Box
There’s nothing more restorative to you and your child than healthy sleep, and yet, with young children, sometimes nothing seems more elusive. We’ve created a guide kit with wisdom from the Elders (in line with modern science) and flower essences and other natural gifts of Nature that support deep rest.

A Sacred Forest Custom Flower Essence “bouquet in a bottle” ~ a special gift
Instead of sending flowers, you might send a Sacred Forest custom flower essence “bouquet” as a deeply personal gift for a child or an adult you love. Imagine what a delight it would be to open the mail and discover a small box tied with colored raffia or ribbon, and to find, inside, a beautiful bottle of specially blended flower essences from a loved one. Alongside the special custom blend would be a note from Deb, explaining the gifts of each flower, gifts chosen by the giver.

Single Session Mentorship
Are you facing a parenting or family challenge that you’d like to address naturally, and instead of reading every book and blog post, you’d just like to ask someone what to do? We’ve been there, and we can help. Parents have used single mentorship sessions to ask questions about growing their own food, flower or herb garden as well as asking questions about taking their child out in the wild world of Nature. Other parents have asked for guidance and support for dealing with simple childhood illnesses or emotional challenges. And yes, most everyone has questions about sleeping soundly.
We’re here for you ~ ask away!

Great Mother Mentorship with Deb (aka Elia Graybear)
Connecting to Mother Nature is essential for our health, wellbeing and vitality. Each season offers its own set of gifts and challenges. By harmonizing with the cycles of the Earth, paying attention to the changes throughout the year, using foods and herbs in accordance with the seasons and attuning to the elements you will find peace and joy. Let Deb help you, dear momma, to remember the way of the Great Mother. You’ll receive a custom-made box of appropriate seasonal herbs and flower essences as well as a guidebook of ideas, suggestions and Nature adventures for you and your little ones. You’ll also receive special treasures from Nature that will delight your children. Elia also delights in writing to your children throughout the year as a pen-pal.
