I’m mixin’ up good vibrations

$7.50

In 1966, the Beach Boys went to #1 with the song  “Good Vibrations”.

The inspiration for the title came from a conversation that Brian Wilson had with his mother as a boy when she explained that the reason some dogs bark at people is that they are picking up on that person’s bad vibrations.

In Brian it sparked an interest in “limbic resonance” which suggests that our nervous systems respond and attune with the nervous systems of people around us, especially those we have close connections with like good friends and family. The research of Drs. Thomas Lewis, Fari Amini and Richard Lannon suggests that this close connection can effect our emotional health, heart rhythms, sleep patterns and personalities.

It seemed like an ideal starting point for a Kitchen Wand. When we know we can have such a strong effect on others, does it not make sense to consciously choose “good vibrations” over “bad” whenever possible?

Description

Each individually handcrafted 13 inch beech wood spoon comes via a protected, managed forest in Europe. Once in Canada, they are charmed with a laser engraver and dipped in a bath of grape seed oil and melted beeswax which brings out the grain and deepens the tone of the wood. Washing in warm water, by hand, and the occasional wipe with a food safe oil will help extend the life of a Kitchen Wand. The image is burned into the wood and will not “come off”. Over time though, as the patina of use develops, the image and the engraving on the handle “My Kitchen Wand” may soften.

The description of this design is easily accessible to customers through an information only webpage on the Kitchen Wand tag.
