Bless is a shop for soul seekers and conscious beings on Stoke Newington Church Street, London N16. What started as a pop-up store flourished into a haven for those seeking to connect with their inner self. Book your tarot reading, soul guidance, reiki healing and morning tea ritual, or attend the workshops and talks. You’ll enjoy browsing fashion, footwear, beauty products, books, and gorgeous gifts. The Bless Shop is perfect if you want to find gifts in Stoke Newington or tarot card readings in North London.
Bless Shop Products
The shop founder, Ashlyn Gibson, edits a unique collection of lovely lifestyle products covering everything from fashion to beauty products. Six principles guide her; daily rituals to nourish the body and soul, self-knowledge, conscious spending, slow fashion, eco-design and sustainable consumption. These principles are evident in the thoughtful items you can buy in-store and online. I’ll mention some of those below and recommend you pop into Bless to get the full experience.
Crystals are said to have healing properties, and Bless has a beautiful selection of crystals. They sell Polished, Raw and Pointed Rose Quartz to promote self-love, attract love and help heal heartbreak. The Raw and Fine Amethyst is a meditation stone that relieves stress and anxiety. Green Flourite may bring clarity and a sense of order to your life. Other crystals include Labradorite, Smoky Quartz Polished, and Tiger Eye. Ask the shop staff for advice on which crystal is best for you.
The book collection is fascinating. It includes everything from Foraged Flora to Healing with Plants, Wild Fermentation, Crystal Apothecary, Witching Hour, The Book of Symbols and The Mystical Year. Purchase a set of Tarot Cards with the Modern Day Tarot Play Book so you can gain insight into the past, present or future.
Decorate your home with natural style accessories, including Hammam Towels, Geometric Stitch Fringe Cushions, Woven Wall Hangings, Dream Catchers, Rattan Light Shades and Banana Stitched Baskets. Enjoy home scents with an aromatherapy candle, reed diffuser, incense sticks or Peruvian Palo Santo Sticks. Light a Californian White Sage Torch for personal smudging and small ceremonies or rituals.
Fashion finds include organic materials and recycled fibres. Flirt all day long in one of the floaty dresses, including floral smock sundresses and faded maxi dresses. If you prefer spending your time at home wearing super comfy clothing, you’ll appreciate the loungewear, whether it’s pyjamas, hoodies or joggers. You can get the boho look with quilted jackets, ruffled tops, and folksy embroidered blouses.
Treat yourself to a fashion accessory. The necklaces and earrings feature raw crystals, moonstones, gemstones, and beaded options. Keep your neck warm with one of the fine merino pattern scarves. Bags include woven palm leaf rucksacks, woven shopping baskets and pattern shopping bags.
Footwear features stripe slippers and felt slippers in rich mustard, rust orange or pomegranate pink. Pop on a pair of sail cloth organic cotton sneakers or the lace-up chukka boots to pound the pavements around North London.
Their beauty collection is full of lovely things, including Cotton Muslin Face Cloths, Face Oils, Cleansers, Toners and Moisturisers. Treat yourself to the Bath Soaks, Gold Sheer Butter or Aromatherapy Pulse Oil. The Bee Potion range has a Skin Correction Cream, Hair Treatment and Foot Treatment.
