SHIPPING CHARGES ARE CURRENTLY COVERED while funds last. Some of our wonderful benefactors have created a small fund to help out. For those who absolutely cannot afford shipping, please include a BRIEF note of explanation in the notes field on the shopping cart, then select "pickup at store" in order to push the order through the system. We will do our best to help you get your order.
To be of greater service during the Covid-19 crisis, Turtle Lodge Trading Post has created a distribution channel to offer FREE CEDAR LEAF TO ESSENTIAL WORKERS, ELDERS, LOW INCOME EARNERS, AND OTHER FOLKS IN HIGH RISK GROUPS who request it, and who cannot harvest their own but would like to have these traditional medicines on hand as a protective aid during these uncertain times.
This offer is on a first come, first served basis while supplies last. Use of these medicines is strictly at your own risk. Please read the precautions listed with product descriptions, and use common sense and your best judgement in all practices.
We are sincerely grateful that our sacred medicines are here to serve us during times of crisis. Cedar (thuja) is one of the four most revered sacred medicines to most of the Indigenous nations on Turtle Island (North America). Cedar has been used as an aid in the fight against viral contagions, among many other applications, for thousands of years.
On our website, www.turtlelodgetradingpost.ca you will see two products for Cedar: One is our usual Cedar at regular prices. The second is the FREE FRESH CEDAR option.
Actual pickup is still an option but remember that we are located an hour outside of Ottawa. If you choose pickup, you must call ahead, specify a date and time, and your order will be placed on its own on a table outside the front door at that time. For safety precautions, please do not ring the doorbell, do not linger, and do not touch anything other than your parcel.
