Newsletter: Edge of Urge is 100% That Witch 🎃

Hello Gorgeous!

That afternoon golden hour is really glowing! It’s time to get cozy and move indoors or huddle around a bonfire with friends as autumn moves into full effect. It also means it’s time to start thinking about wardrobes and new skin- and self-care routines to prepare your mind and body for the dark days of winter ahead. We know, we know, no one wants to think about winter already when there are still pumpkins to be carved, cider to be sipped, and costumes to be donned — and let’s not forget that GIANT FEAST in November. 

Oh, and we might have opened a cute new shop called RENEW since the last time you heard from us.

What's Going On?

Renew: You deserve to be here

On Friday, Sept. 6, in the height of Hopscotch 2019, we flipped on the neon sign, tore down the paper in the big windows, and after months of hustle, Renew: House of Self-Love by Edge of Urge was open for business in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina.

I am a maker and designer by trade and my trade is how I communicate and express myself best. Renew House of Self Love is an extension of this personal journey to truly, deeply and genuinely feel like I DESERVE TO BE HERE just as much as any of us do. That means I deserve to show up just as I am, no strings attached. I want this space to serve as a place for you to come and be inspired, to learn something wonderful or discover a new ritual you would like to welcome into your life. I want you to have a great conversation and make new connections, to have a good belly laugh! I want you to find that perfect gift for someone who was there for you when you needed them most.

—Jessie Williams, Edge of Urge owner & HBIC

Happy Birthday, Edge of Urge Raleigh!

It’s Edge of Urge Raleigh’s Golden Birthday! We’re turning 5 on November 5th! Give us a follow on Instagram for more details and an invite to our special day. We’re so excited to tear it up with you! 

Crystal Bar Soap

We are absolutely agog over these good-vibe infused glycerin soaps from LA. When you’re done feeling so fresh and clean-clean, you get a pocket-sized crystal to carry with you and keep the good vibes going! Sustainable, eco-friendly, cruelty free, and woman-led, we can’t tell you how much we love these gorgeous little bars. Grab a Crystal Bar Soap that fits your mood or that houses your favorite little stone! They’re available online and in our Wilmington and Renew locations.

Fat and the Moon

Rachel Budde describes herself as a “witch over a cauldron” as she continues her family tradition of creating handcrafted, herbal care products that are good for face, body, AND the Earth. And you know, that is some good magic we can seriously get behind. Fat and the Moon’s entire ethos is about healing through self-care and self-love, and their products walk the talk. They’ve got something for tired skin, bug bites, new moms, and anyone looking for just a little extra care. They’re great, they make us feel great, and they’re a brand we’re happy to support and have in our shops. (Kristin in Raleigh seriously wouldn’t shut up about the Pimple Mud to anyone who would listen.) You can find them online and at Raleigh and Renew.

Salt by Hendrix

From the packaging to the way their beautiful products make you feel, Salt by Hendrix is lux-ur-i-ous. Salt uses plant-based ingredients from around the world for its line of skin and home products, and everything was selected with very specific intention. Vitamins give skin what it craves, antioxidants protect against what it doesn’t, and everything smells and feels so rich. “Be kind to the world and your soul,” is their signoff, something we co-sign dearly. We only have one of each, after all! Salt by Hendrix is available online and at Renew.

✨Don’t Forget!✨

Keep the bad vibes at bay this year and fill your Halloween with positive energy and beautiful stones instead! Don’t believe in crystals as anything more than just shiny rocks? No worries, sometimes we think crystals are just good for being pretty too, and that’s OK. Interested in learning more? Check out our current selection of crystals and books here.

Thanksgiving is late this year! America’s day of thanks falls on November 28, which means less than a month of “official” holiday shopping. Don’t be a turkey! Beat the crowds, avoid the stress, and start shopping sooner rather than later. And if you’d rather wait, keep your eyes posted to our Instagram, where we’ll be sharing our Small Business Saturday specials closer to the big weekend. Gobble, gobble!
