Meal for One
I had an evening alone... this never happens, especially at home. I decided to cook for myself, loving the healthy balanced choices. Basmati rice, chickpea curry, and a large salad with healthy fats for brain and hormonal balance. Beets are supportive of the liver, broccoli is also high in phytonutrients...all of the veggies are rich with nutrients. This is one way I show myself care and self-love. Eating well always makes me feel good--inside and out! Eat your medicine!!
Food as Medicine
I love food as medicine because it's the ultimate way to be empowered on our personal healing journeys. This is wild, local honey infused/lightly fermented with Loquat fruit. This years Loquat harvest was the largest I've had, and so we crafted lots of yumminess. Loquats are used in Chinese medicine, usually the leaf and/or leaf and fruit combined. It supports lung and stomach issues.
This is Arugula flower essence, supported with Rose Quartz and Selenite. I just love how the Selenite wand caught the sun's reflection to create a glow--this is not filtered!! The great thing is that this flower essence is used in my Open Heart--Stand in Your Light Elixir....literally infused with light!! Arugula helps us connect with our Light also, so it's really special that the camera caught the magic!
Love Affair with Roses
Roses are my fave...the smell, the beauty, the poetry...all of it. Here I had just harvested roses off one of my bushes for an infused oil. This oil is the base for my Be Sweet Salve, and for Creams and Body Butters. Rose is lightly astringent, super soothing, and good for the heart and spirit!
small batch harvesting
I always harvest only what I need. I like to work with fresh plants, and so harvesting is done in small batches, at the right time of day. These are early spring weedy greens, gonna be delicious!
peaches and peach leaf
Cooling in the heat...I love this Elixir, super calming, cooling, and great support for stomach upset, which is common in these hot summer months.
Flower Essences: Spring Equinox
We always make flower essences around the changes of seasons. This was either the day of or the day after. Garden Sage with Amethyst flower and crystal essence. This is a very spiritual essence, nudging us to connect our higher self, our spiritual source, and trust our innate wisdom.
plant medicine contains the extract from the plant, I usually use fresh plants to not only extract the medicinal qualities, but the essence of the plants as well.
