This is the Intentional Creativity Lifestyle Vacation where you will live with us day in and day out to explore the choices you want to make for your own life. Not because you will want to do what we do (you might) but because you want to design your life in a way that nourishes you and brings you more pleasure.
As some of you may know, Shiloh went through a health crisis two years ago and part of what we will share with you is the menu and exercise plan we put in place to heal her digestion. It is a process, and it does take time, but you will create your customized plan for your own wellness going forward including how you eat, sleep, move, and create.
We look forward to spending time and sharing the bounty of the MUSEA Ranch and Wild Water Creek in Sonoma, Musette Atelier, and our home.

"When I get to cook for our community, I become "Ingredient Zero". This means that I am the catalyst and hold the intention for what happens at our table. This setting of intention creates a field condition, like a container, within which our guests are nourished, strengthened and vitalized. It's an honoring of place and time." ~ Jonathan
The LEGEND of BLUE LOTUS ~ Our inspiration is this incredible flower and what it enables in the dream world.
“The Egyptians saw that the blue water lily opened up each morning, seeing the intense golden centre set against the blue petals, seemingly an imitation of the sky that would greet the sun, releasing sweet perfume.
The blue lotus (Nymphaea caerulea, Nymphaeaceae), also known as the Egyptian blue water lily, was the symbol for life, immortality, and resurrection.
Blue Lotus is said to connect one to the Divine, inducing higher states of being and consciousness. It is for this reason it was widely used in religious rites and ceremonies. Blue Lotus is said to induce a state of euphoria, promote relaxation, & improve circulation, making it a potent aphrodisiac.
The Blue Lotus flower is a water lily that predominantly grows in Egypt and certain parts of Asia.
It holds cultural importance, and images of the flower have been found on ancient papyri and on the walls of tombs. Historians believe it was once used in ancient Egypt as a traditional medicine to treat anxiety and insomnia as well as promote libido. Tombs have been found to contain vessels of wine that were infused with Blue Lotus. This could also have been used ceremonially, but it was certainly a part of their culture.
It’s known as an entheogenic, which is a mind-altering substance believed to alter one’s consciousness in a spiritual or religious manner. This term is commonly used instead of “hallucinogenic” or “psychedelic”.
The two main compounds responsible for the flower’s psychoactive and medicinal effects are apomorphine and nuciferine:
Here at Musette, we create a tincture. This means that we grind the flowers into a powder and then soak that in a precise ratio in pure ethanol alcohol for 6 weeks. This releases the active ingredients into the solution. We then slowly extract the liquid into 30ml bottles with a recommended dose of 1 - 2 ml at bedtime. We have found that this promotes sleep and a vivid dream space impacting brainwaves.
Introducing Blue Lotus Tincture, a powerful and mystical elixir derived from the ancient Blue Lotus flower! Known for its captivating scent and ethereal beauty, this sacred plant has been cherished for centuries by various cultures for its array of beneficial properties.
Our premium Blue Lotus Tincture harnesses the flower's natural compounds, creating a potent and versatile remedy that may aid in stress reduction, improved sleep quality, and enhanced cognitive function.
Immerse yourself in the soothing embrace of this enchanting tincture and experience a harmonious blend of relaxation and rejuvenation. Elevate your daily wellness routine and discover the remarkable world of Blue Lotus Tincture.

So many of us feel that our lives and our relationship to our bodies are out of our control. We are just born with what we came in with and inherited from a DNA perspective. We get attached to our ways of doing things and lose sight of what's possible for us as humans. And there are so many outside influences we are constantly navigating. This will offer a wellness reset that will carry on into your day to day life if you choose.
