The ingredients are all fair trade and organic. Aunt Colyce also encompasses print, blogs, video, music and podcasts.
Aunt Colyce was created for those of us that are all but forgotten in this world. Aunt Colyce is a space where we can remind ourselves of our own humanity. Aunt Colyce is a space where we can imagine what our own healing can look like, and then find ways to move a little closer. I created Aunt Colyce for those of us who have forgotten how special and amazing we are. I created Aunt Colyce so that we never forget how special and amazing we are. I created Aunt Colyce for those of us who have a hard time getting out of bed. I created Aunt Colyce for those of us who navigate, travel too and perceiver in unsafe spaces as a means of survival.
