Hey there, m'Dears.
After giving the matter a lot of thought, I've decided to discontinue the Orisha magical perfume oils from our Cobalt Druid line.
As we learn more and know better we must also endeavor to do better.
I want to "walk my talk" and be better in my efforts toward equity, inclusion, and anti-bigotry. That means acknowledging that as a white person, it is harmful that I make money and imply authority/expertise through work that is rooted in spiritual traditions of African cultures.
Nui Cobalt will be taking the following oils down from our website after midnight on Wednesday August 3rd:
All proceeds from any further sales of these perfume oils (those occurring between now and August 3rd at midnight Eastern time) will be donated directly to The Grassroots Law Project, formerly known as Action PAC, "a political organizing force working to combat racism and bigotry in the United States. They bridge the gap between grassroots organizing and legal expertise in criminal justice reform by bringing millions of people together to address the most pressing and egregious failures of the system, hold powerful actors accountable, and advocate for deep structural change."
We encourage you to support their work as well. https://grassrootslaw.org/
Thanks as always for your continued support and encouragement.
