L a v e n d e r 💜 lavender is well known for its calming and relaxing powers but it is also an incredible antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. as an oil or balm lavender is a wonderful healer of scrapes and cuts, minor burns and insect bites but taken orally, can also alleviate digestive issues including bloating, gas, nausea and indigestion and can even help increase iron levels ✨ rubbed on the temples, lavender oil will help with headaches and can also help improve sleep, stress and anxiety. lavender is a great oil to meditate with as it relaxes and calms the mind, brings clarity and improves focus 🌈 you can use lavender as an oil (either rubbed on the skin or with a room diffuser), a balm or ointment, as a tea or you can even include dried lavender in your meals like you would use other herbs such as rosemary! for treating stress or anxiety, you can add a few drops of lavender oil to a hot bath or the bottom of your shower or alternatively rub on pressure points (such as the temples or wrists). for improving sleep you can do the same as above or sprinkle a few drops of the oil on your pillow before you sleep 🔮 as always, remember plant medicine can be potent and powerful and lavender is no exception. for dosage and correct usage for you, speak to a professional 🌱

Burdock, flowering now
.
.
.
burdock is a biennial, flowering in the second year. those sticky flower heads or "burrs" (apparently the inspiration for velcro) will soon form seeds and dry out. burdock seed may be used medicinally, often as a hair/ scalp tonic, but it's really difficult to harvest. i've tried. but be my guest.
.
.
the most commonly used (and slightly easier to harvest) part of burdock is the root. now, when digging roots of biennial plants, you gotta make sure you're harvesting a first year plant. so these beauties with the tall, flowering stalks are not what you're after, you want those gorgeous, low to the ground plants with the huge green leaves every rural person around here recognizes. scroll through, it's the last pic. you can use burdock root as a cooking vegetable or a pickling vegetable. you can use it medicinally, as a decoction, infusion, vinegar, or tincture. burdock root is traditionally used to normalize skin conditions, its action is thought to be on the sebaceous glands, as it has an affinity for oils in the body. burdock root is also used as a liver tonic, and dealing with ingested fats and oils is indeed one of the livers crucial jobs. burdock isn't a fast- acting medicine, this is more of a food- like herb that you can eat/ take daily for long periods to slowly build up to and enjoy full benefits.
.
.
as with all roots, it's best to harvest them after a frost for most potency. burdock has a long, deep tap root and can be a bit difficult to dig up so bring a good shovel and patience. i never successfully dig a whole one up but that's ok, whatever's left in the ground will likely grow more burdock! .

Gathering food and medicine this morning 🌿🌾.
wild organic food is any chefs dream.
blackberries, elderberry, pine needles, nettles.
➡️more pics, and
a short video of nettle field today
.
thinking of making gluten free crumble with the berries .
some of the nettles will be cooked,
some will be used for making a nettle vinegar.
.
as a child i would pick nettles with my mother, and used to absolutely hate the taste. was given them to eat as a part of the treatment for anemia.
.
i am coming back to making my herbal medicine, tonics and elixirs again.
a new cycle has started.
might write again about it.
.
anyone does similar? what are you making? what do you reccomnd?
please share♥️🌱. .

We shall have to shift from the materialistic, dualistic belief that people and their environment are separate, toward a new consciousness of an all-encompassing reality, which embraces the experiencing ego, a reality in which people feel their oneness with animate nature and all of creation. albert hoffmann artist @mattattack426 #psychonaut #psychedelic #transformation #entheogeneration #lifeshaman #shamanic #creative #visionaryart #medicine #psychedelicschangelives #healing #journey #holistichealth #alchemy #magic #magicmedicinewomen #plantpower #wisdom #therapy #holisticmedicine #medicine #plants #plantmedicine #healing #psychedelicart #glitchart

I now sell eucalyptus radiata in 10ml size. i love the soft and a very subtle floral like aroma ( well to me anyways ) of the radiata which some consider the more medicinal of the eucalyptus essential oils. grown in australia.

Souls love. that’s what souls do. egos don’t, but souls do. become a soul, look around, and you’ll be amazed-all the beings around you are souls. be one, see one. when many people have this heart connection, then we will know that we are all one, we human beings all over the planet. we will be one. one love. and don’t leave out the animals, and trees, and clouds, and galaxies-it’s all one. it’s one energy.

An old friend
that knew the old me
told me today
to be careful
of myself
because
they didn’t
understand
that ritual
in all forms
is beautiful
and people
only fear
what they are afraid
to understand 🔮🎴

Many people will recognize lavender for it’s beautiful purple blooms, and unmistakable scent. while it is commonly used to freshen linen closets, aromatize baked goods, adorn gardens, and spruce up lattes, it may be less recognizable as a medicinal plant. in fact, lavender has been used medicinally since ancient times, and its ability to help people struggling with anxiety is supported by modern research.

I overheard someone the other day explaining luck being when preparation and opportunity meet. this made me smile and reflect on my own life. thinking about all the preparations and choices i have made to get to where i am, knowing that opportunity will meet me at different intervals along the way. i’ve just got to be ready to step forward calmly when opportunity appears and when it doesn’t stay calmly exactly where i am. pictured is a beautiful handmade @carpenters_daughter apron i gifted to myself in preparation as i begin creating, blending, attuning and working with what will be the first collection for the nature notes society of flower essence, herbal teas, salves and other plant offerings. in spirit of slowness, i will tend to it all as my heart guides allowing this process to become all that it will be ~ when opportunity and preparation meet again 🌿
