The Bird is a massage tool for the entire body. When applied with slow, rhythmic movements, The Bird can help with lymphatic drainage, increase blood circulation, and release toxins, relaxing muscles and awakening the senses.
The curves on The Bird can be used to slide along tensed arms or legs, while the points can be used for extra pressure. Apply A.OK oil before massage to help The Bird glide over skin and create a simple, elevating daily ritual.
Sandalwood Dimensions: 5 in x 3 in
Each tool is carved from natural sandalwood so variations in shape and color will occur. You will receive an untreated sandalwood tool that will develop a luster after a few drops of oil.

MAKER STORY: A.OK
Alessandra is an illustrator, author, and true self-care advocate. Her dedication to helping people take time for themselves has blossomed into A.OK. When the world shut down, Alessandra was left feeling unmotivated and like most all of us, despondent. Above all else, she expresses the loneliness and isolation was crushing as an artist who finds inspiration in the world around her. Around this time, Alessandra began training as an end-of-life doula, something she had always wanted to do, but felt especially compelled during the isolation of covid. Still seeking a way to connect with people and soothe herself during these anxiety-ridden years, Alessandra began experimenting with essential oils to ground herself. This experimentation turned into a practice, using essential oils like lavender and jasmine as ways to soothe and motivate herself.
When Alessandra realized how effective her new self-care ritual had become, she decided it was time to make it accessible to more people. A.OK is Alessandra’s way of inviting you to practice “giving yourself a hug”. Her product line acts as tools for carving out moments to reconnect with your body and mind.
As a mom myself, Alessandra’s story really resonated with me. Not only do I think her ethos and point of view is something to value and highlight, her attention to detail and quality of her products is unparalleled. A.OK’s ingredient list is amazingly simple: avocado oil, sunflower oil, grape seed oil, vitamin E, and a combination of essential oils. Simple and effective. I am proud to welcome A.OK to the Interior Monologue Shop.
