Catherine Rising -begun by Catherine Costanza- is a socially conscious apothecary brand that specializes in dried florals and fragrances. Made to support female farmers, makers, and small business owners, the brand utilizes sustainable thrifted and recycled packaging. Burning of a sage smudge stick is an ancient practice, known for its use among many Indigenous tribes of North America--they are intended to ward off negative energy, cleanse one's spirit or space, and for aromatherapy. 

Each item found at DECEMBER THIEVES is lovingly crafted.  We work with small artisans and independent designers who follow small batch manufacturing practices.  For them this means working solo with a handful of studio assistants or with small family run workspaces to bring to life their creations.

For us this means high quality unique products in very small quantities and a true dedication to the transformative power of a product made with passion.  Nothing is mass produced, nothing that can be reordered on a whim, and when it runs out, it runs out.
