Blessingway Kits – NEW PRICE!
Blessingways began as Native American ceremonies to honor and “bless” a woman on her journey to motherhood. We practice this beautiful custom today to continue the celebration of mothers everywhere~
Different in essence from a baby shower (which focuses on material needs), this deep-rooted tradition is centered around the woman and her spiritual needs through pregnancy, birth and motherhood. A Blessingway creates an intimate circle of support that will cradle her as she prepares to give birth to her child. Surrounded by the most important women in her life, a mom-to-be can explore the challenges and joys that lie before her, thereby gaining a sense of power, confidence, and support that will help her rise to motherhood.
“By creating Blessingway rituals for each other, we can reach outside of ourselves and weave a web of community: a living, breathing web of women who are blessing, teaching, and supporting one another – and as a result, helping give birth to each other’s children.”
Blessingways are appropriate for each pregnancy, because each pregnancy is a different journey towards creating and birthing a new child. Each pregnancy may bring forth different concerns or fears that need to be addressed before childbirth-a Blessingway is a safe and helpful way to do this.
Our Blessingway Kit is based on some of the more commonly used rituals. Such practices are seen in our pictures and are reviewed in detailed directions included in our kit. Some rituals include: henna belly & body art, cleansing negative energy with sage, poetry & prayer readings, herbal foot baths & massage and burning of fears. Our kit contains all of the essentials needed to guide and host a Blessingway.

- Sage Smudge
- Birth Prayers
- Henna (premixed paste with applicator tip)
