What is a Hermitage?
A hermitage is a place of spiritual alignment with the wilderness. The wise Hermit of mythology has withdrawn from society to commune with nature and find answers within. Our plugged-in modern lifestyles leave many of us yearning for peace and solitude in a hermitage of our own. The Hermit teaches us the value of intentional retreat to renew mind and spirit, and serves as a reminder of our own inner-wisdom and guidance.
As an archetype that shows up in legend, mythology, pop culture, and tarot, the Hermit reminds us that wisdom is meant to be shared. They are a trusted and sought-after teacher because of the spiritual revelation through their ongoing commitment to solitude and silence. The Hermit offers valuable insight and respite for seekers who have lost their way on their own journeys into the unknown. While they serve as a reminder of the importance of our own inner-wisdom and guidance, the Hermit also calls on us to find the light within so that we can share it with the world.
Not able to flee to the wilderness just now? Our Hermitage line is a sensory escape that can turn your home into a private den in the forest, much like the fox builds a refuge of safety. Inspired by the four-legged Keeper of the Wild, Hermitage is a complex, rapturous scent profile. Deep, earthy patchouli is coupled with juicy citrus for an aroma that will transport you to a grove of old-growth trees, complete with the crispness of autumn leaves. The effect is both soothing and renewing-- mystery meets epiphany.
