WE THE BIRDS x Chelsie B. Richard
We are so excited to announce the launch of the Wellness Collection in collaboration with Chelsie B. Richard (our dear friend and essential oil/wellness specialist). We have been obsessively developing this product offering with Chelsie for months (with conversations about this product beginning as far back as we can remember)! Though we never could have imagined the global climate we are in right now for the launch of this product, we also cannot think of a more vital time to share this passion project with the world.
- the state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal.
The Wellness Collection is inspired by our pursuit of WELLNESS in our every day lives— the pursuit of balance, energy, calm, revitalization, and peace amidst our busy lives. The universe had its own plan in mind to slow us down: COVID-19. As we live separately but together in this quarantined state, our pursuit of WELLNESS has only amplified. Join us as we prioritize wellness & self-care through our senses— nourishing our body, mind, and soul.
The popularity of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has increased over the past few decades. The use of Essential oils are a big part of this movement. For those new to this trend, these potent oils (most of which have been around for centuries) are extracted from plants to capture their flavors, scents, and overall beneficial properties. We've broken down the properties of each essential oil used in the macaron flavors below! If you're looking to learn more, follow Chelsie B. Richard on IG!
The Wellness Collection Bundle includes:
- handcrafted French macarons
- 10 ml. essential oil roller
- self-love affirmation card
With Chelsie's guidance, we've used pure essential oils to formulate these unique flavors. The flavors are infused with purpose— each representing a specific intention based on the benefits of the essential oil used in the recipe. The color palette for this collection is inspired by the colors of the spring skies. The light and airy design mimics diffused clouds.
- CALM — Copaiba, Lavender, Rosemary, Dark Chocolate
- BALANCE — Geranium, Bergamot, Lime
- PURIFY — Grapefruit, Pink Pepper

The Essential Oil Roller
THE EVERYTHING BLEND: Specially formulated for... everything! ...whatever you need right now... this all-encompassing, aromatic blend will rise to any occasion. It was our desire to make a tool that would serve and support the spectrum of emotions that arise on any given day. With base essentials of copaiba and sandalwood, middle essentials of lavender, clary sage, and Melissa, and top essentials of bergamot and tangerine. This powerhouse of support has been curated exclusively for WE THE BIRDS.
Directions for Use*
Apply to wrist. Smell from bottle. Roll over heart. Take 2 deep breaths. *For external use only*
Use whenever you find yourself in your feelings (whatever they may be)! You'll find that the notes you need most in that moment will present themselves. For example, Nat and Sarah rubbed the roller on at the same time but noticed different fragrances first! S smelled bergomot strongly, while N noticed a more grounding, woody scent. Chelsie explained that Sarah probably needed the uplifting properties of the bergomot in that moment. In contrast, Nat needed more balance and relaxation. The EVERYTHING roller spoke to us differently based on our needs!
I was created on purpose, with purpose, for purpose
That purpose is worth nurturing and expressing
I will not be small and suppress my creative nature
I will rise up again and again,
allowing my imagination to be carried through galaxies.
For I am brilliant beyond comprehension
Greatness by design
I am perfect
I am enough
I am worthy of it all.
My life is a symphony
And the notes are just starting to take shape.
