🍃The Spiritual Bowl Ritual lifts abundance and prosperity. Placing this bowl in a well lighted area will enrich it's energy and remind you of your spiritual and material goals that you need to achieve. There are no specific rules in what to add to your bowl. We are all different and for that reason we have specific spiritual and materials needs we wish to achieve. *** I do not only add crystals to my bowls, but herbs as well. Herbs are part of mother nature and for that reason I resonate with them as I do with crystals. Herbs give me a sense of groundedness which I felt was needed. For my bowl I used dried Eucalyptus which symbolizes protection. "Negative energy dissapears in the place where you burn a Eucalyptus Leaf." #herbs #herbalincense #crystalritual #incenseritual #crystalcleanse #crystalhealing #crystal #herbalism #plants #nature #candles #sage

Forcing our preferred methodology, belief, or view upon someone because we think it is “right,” or “more advanced” when they do not possess the resonance, interest, or capacity to engage that practice is unkind, aggressive, and even potentially violent. It is one thing to honor another’s innate higher capacities—and to never forget the brilliance of their true nature—especially in the face of profound suffering. But it is another to push this realization upon them as a result of our own misattunement and failure of empathy, where we fall out of right-brain to right-brain synchronization. May we meet the other with a wild sort of caring (the external other as well as the lost inner other within us) and push them a bit if this is our agreement, but always remain aware of the tendency to send them spiraling outside their window of tolerance into overwhelm and shame, spinning into an unsafe place where they come to deeply mistrust their own experience. We must never forget that trauma unwinds only in an environment of safety. While this work is not always going to feel safe, a basic ground of safety is required for it is from this foundation that the wounds of a lifetime can untangle and we can metabolize in the body that which has become dissociated and shut down. In this field of co-regulation where our nervous system is soothed and we are compassionate, creative, and attuned—not pushing our own agenda, view, or technique—together we can access, articulate, and integrate that which longs to return home, and in this discover it is love that is truly the ultimate medicine. #theflowerdoulacodeofethics - @matthewlicata Image: @sophiedelorme . . . . #doula #wombwork #lotusbirth #closingthebones #webdesigner #webdesign #flowerwhisperer #flowermedicine #herbs #herbalism #childofgod #divinefeminine #starchildren #oldtrees #underthefloralspell #herbalremedies #witchythings #trauma #gentleness #respect

History of The Spagyric Method 🌿 The word Spagyrics comes from ancient Greece and can be divided into two parts. “Spao” = I Collect, and “Agerio” = I extract / Recombine. It can also be briefly explained as separating and combining. Spagyric plant extracts originated in ancient alchemy, separating the three basic principles of a plant, then reuniting them and transmuting it to a more potent form than the original plant. Within alchemy this was considered a more spiritual and holistic way of creating plant medicines. As the spagyric method brings together and reunites the three basic principles of the plant, Oils, Alcohol / Tincture and Mineral salts. Spagyric products are thus the philosophy of preserving the full spectrum of the plant.

We had a magical and mystical time at the @alberta_herb_gathering at Pigeon lake this year so I’m shouting out loud. So many Herbal Elders and so much plant knowledge! Legendary, with legends to say the least on how we as a community can help our friends, family and foes (yes foes), the way it’s always been done. If you have a knack or interest for plants and healing, look up the Alberta Herb Gathering online and/or come join the gathering next year.

植物のひとつひとつに宇宙を感じます。 湯守をされている先輩から教えてもらって、ヨツバヒヨドリ花に集まるアサギマダラを見に地元の安達太良山へ。 まるで地球の体内を歩いているような体験でした。 ヨツバヒヨドリ花は、アメリカの先住民の間でグレーベルルートといって、根の部分を常備ハーブとして使っていたそうです。 免疫系や利尿作用、風邪などにも良い薬草です。 #安達太良山 #ヨロイグザ #ヨツバヒヨドリ #アサギマダラ #herbalmedicine #herbalism #母なる地球 #ガイア #宇宙 #足首グギッとなった #うっかり八兵衛

Ginseng is the root of the plants in the genus Panax, such as Korean ginseng (P. ginseng), South China ginseng (P. notoginseng), and American ginseng (P. quinquefolius), typically indicated by the presence of Ginsenosides and Gintonin. The English word “ginseng” comes from the Hokkien (a southern Min Chinese dialect originating from the Minnan region in the south-eastern part of the Fujian province in southeastern China and Taiwan, and widely spoken there as well as Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, and spoken in other parts of Southeast Asia). Written in Chinese jîn-sim (人參). The first character 人 means “person” and the second character 參 means “plant root”. The botanical genus name Panax, meaning “all-healing” in Greek, shares the same origin as “panacea” and was applied to this genus due to the fact Carl Linnaeus was aware of its wide use in Chinese Medicine as a muscle relaxant. Panacea (Greek Πανάκεια, Panakeia) was a Goddess of universal remedy. She was the daughter of Asclepius and Epione. (SEE COMMENTS!!! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼)

The legend of Persephone , who was the daughter of the earth, tells that she was picking Violets when she was abducted and taken to the underworld by Hades. Lately I have been called to the underworld of deep pain, grief and sorrow and to the wounds that callous over our true shiny nature. Little wonder then that the Violets were calling out to be of use. The delicate scent while picking the tiny blossoms is profoundly soothing and they have now been transformed into a calming and steadying drop dose elixir for letting go of unhelpful patterns, attachments and connections and to move the waters and disperse the lumps of solidified past painful experiences. More to come on remedies for the underworld...

I want people to think more broadly about the interplay between their emotional and physical states, especially how certain mental/emotional patterns lodge in the body as dis-ease. For example...You know how anxiety can tighten our chest, pull us inward, and constrict our breathing? Maybe we even hyperventilate or get asthma attacks. I suggest that Grindelia (Gumweed) could be excellent medicine for someone who experiences anxiety in the chest region, especially if they feel stuck and floundering in their internal processes. Think flooding, constriction, and repression. Grindelia is known for being powerful lung medicine. It soothes conditions like asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema. It reduces inflammation, pulls up mucus, opens the chest, and is an antispasmodic. See the overlay? I am convinced, for all sorts of reasons that Grindelia has shared with me, that it would be well suited to holistically address certain types of anxiety. May I suggest Grindelia-infused honey. I just made some and it has an unexpectedly compelling and soothing flavor! Yum! #herbalismandmentalhealth #plantsandmentalhealth #plantallies #holistichealth #mentalhealth #herbalism #plantshamanism #plantspiritmedicine #healyourself #paradigmshift #mindbodysoul #anxiety #anxietyrelief #grindelia #gumweed

⠀ Corn silk is often over looked as an herb. Most people throw the cornsilk in the compost with the husk, but cornsilk is good medicine. ⠀ A strong tea of cornsilk is a diuretic, tones the bladder, strengthens and calms an overactive bladder and prevents urinary tract infections. Corn has a bad reputation in our modern day. She has been spliced and manipulated and abused by mega corporations. She had been called malevolent and said to cause harm by the decendents of those who once called upon her as the Great Corn Mother. ⠀ It’s the season to reconnect with Corn. Boil corn. Grill corn. Pop pop corn kernels. Bake corn into bread. This is the right time of year to invite her into your home and be soothed by the songs of the Grain Goddess, Corn 🌽🌽 . . . . #familymedicine #familyapothecary #familybotanicals #familyfirst #familylife #familyhealth #cornsilk #forgotten #folk #folkmedicine #folkremedies #plantbased #infusions #yogalife #inspiration #vibranthealth #countryliving #simples #slowliving #plasticfreejuly #southernoregon #herbalism #herbalist #apothecary #organic #lunar #naturelovers #sistershelpingsisters #healthcare #nature

Remember you have power. • You're also a weirdo, and you do weird shit that might not make sense or seem proper. You entertain dangerous ideas, and embrace the taboo. You do things your own way.

eggplant flower 茄子 [学名 Solanum melongena]ナス科 インド原産 畑でとれた茄子の山のなかに、ふんわりと一輪、茄子の花。ここからあの茄子紺色の果実へと成長していくなんて、野菜の花を見たことのない人にとっては、想像つかないことではないでしょうか。メタモルフォーゼは植物の神秘。薄紫色の星のような花は、下を向いて咲いています。花のあと20日ほどで果実がつきます。皮の色は、ナスニンという抗酸化作用や血液浄化作用のあるアントシアニン色素成分。アクはクロロゲン酸、これも抗酸化作用があります。 皮ごと食べるとよいとされるのは、こうした植物化学成分をいただかないことにはもったいないからですが、食事は健康のためだけではありませんので、ときには、皮をとってのお料理もたのしみます。とくにレモンとオリーブオイル、にんにくだけで仕上げるトルコ料理の焼き茄子のペーストはやみつきのお味。日本料理でも皮をむいての煮浸しは品のある美味しさです。
我が家の定番は、皮付きでタテにスライスし、グレープシードオイルでソテーしてすぐに醤油、酢、さとう、ニンニクでつくったたれに漬け込みます。青シソをちぎって散らして、3〜4日の常備菜に。これを、バルサミコ酢と塩、こしょうに変えて、スペアミントを散らすイタリアンバージョンもあります。
とにかく旬の野菜は、つぎつぎとやってきます。世界の料理と家庭料理をアレンジしてどんどんいただきます。 #herbalism #herbs #plants #herbgarden #gourmet #vegetables #eggplant #aromatherapy #saradaburnet #astilllifestyle #interior #decor #art #design #ハーブ #ガーデン #花 #植物療法 #ハーブ療法 #アロマテラピー #フェンネル #フラワーエッセンス #グラフィックデザイン #アート #祈りの庭 #ノワイヨノットハーバルアーツ #茄子の花 #野菜の花

Are there mushrooms in your coffee? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Medicinal mushrooms, such as reishi, chaga, or cordyceps, are becoming a popular addition in coffee since they have a mild, earthy flavor that blends well with coffee. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also because these magical mushrooms carry a slew of health benefits, such as boosting immunity, reducing inflammation, and providing high levels of antioxidants which can also help to balance the acidic effects of the coffee. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve been making decaf cold brew with chaga and cordyceps mixed in, is that something you’d like to see a blog post about?

#Oregano 🌿 The leaves of Oregano are the most commonly used part of the herb, and can be used fresh or dry. Two of the most important organic components of Oregano are #rosemarinicacid and #thymol , both of which are powerful #antioxidants. Oregano defends the human body against a wide range of bacteria. Oregano is also slightly a stimulating agent, which can increase the production of white blood cells and speed up metabolism, making it faster and easier to recover from common illnesses. Nutrient rich with a high content of #manganese , #iron , #calcium , #vitaminK , #fiber and a wide range of other organic compounds, makes it an ideal herb for #detoxifying the body. #oregano #oiloforegano #herbalremedies #herbalremedy #immunity #immunesystemsupport #organicgardening #organicherbs #eatyourmedicine #organicmedicine #herbaciousperennials #herbalism #naturalmedicine #medicinalherbs #medicinalgarden #herbs

Red Staghorn Sumac 🌱 The BEST summer drink you could come by ❤️ Red Staghorn Sumac is found usually at the edges of farm land, you might have even seen these large trees along the side of roads. People often jump into thinking that because the term “Sumac” is presented in this name, that it is poisonous. Once you become comfortable identifying this plant versus Poison Sumac, you’ll be able to see that they aren’t very much alike at all. The leaves of the Red Staghorn Sumac are long skinny leaves that have teeth like edges to them. While Poison Sumac leaves are more rounded and smooth. The berries, as shown in this picture, have a fluffy and furry look to them. The whole fruit is about the size of my wrist to my finger tips. And its color is this reddish, orange. Poison Sumac has individual, bright, red or white berries. Another obvious distinction is that Posion Sumac grows near swamps, while this one grows near roads and farm land. Typically where there is full sun. Red Staghorn Sumac is filled with Vitamin C. It is a great alternative for bleeding gums, as bleeding gums is an indication of low Vitamin C. My favorite medicine that comes from this plant is that it can internally cool the body. How amazing is that?! No wonder it grows in the middle of summer, when it is the hottest time of the year! Drink a glass of Red Staghorn Sumac on a hot summer day and it will feel as if the heat never touched you! This photo shows my Red Staghorn steeping in some water for me to drink. The recipe is simple but can take several hours to infuse. The flavor is cooling, yet sour and sweet. Chewing on the berries themselves taste just like a sour candy! #herbalism #herblife #herbalist #herbalfood #herbs #plantlife #plantlove

"We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface but connected in the deep." - William James # I love house sitting. (Related sidebar: I'm a great house sitter. If you're in the Triangle, hmu.) It's like a little retreat -- especially when you're in the beautiful, historic South next to an old Mill house. # I savor time to write and drink a cup of tea on the porch, listening to the whirring cicadas.

"The leaves of the world comprise countless billion elaborations of a single, simple machine designed for one job only – a job upon which hinges humankind. Leaves make sugar. Plants are the only things in the universe that can make sugar out of nonliving inorganic matter. All the sugar that you have ever eaten was first made within a leaf. Without a constant supply of glucose to your brain, you will die. Period. Under duress, your liver can make glucose out of protein or fat – but that protein or fat was originally constructed from a plant sugar within some other animal. It’s inescapable: at this very moment, within the synapses of your brain, leaves are fueling thoughts of leaves." - Hope Jahren

Rich in iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, zinc, phosphorus, folic acid, and a spectrum of vitamins A, B, C and K this herb can be used to alleviate symptoms for everything from hay fever to diabetes and anemia, with applications in cancer treatment! This herb contains valuable nutrients with antioxidant properties, treats fluid retention and speeds the elimination of toxins from the system, is used as a remedy for colic, and strengthens the immune system.

👁 Old Eyes 👁 ✨This piece is in homage of my ancestors, the nonna’s who listened and gave, the Italian witches.✨ 🌬Sometime last year I was led to @karyn.crisis book “Italy’s Witches and Medicine Women” and was/ still am in awe of her telling of this ancient and specific story of a lineage that still persists today. I’ve not come across another text on the topic that so accurately represents these women. I could go on and on about the resonance of this account within my own experience, and maybe will someday. But for now I’ll leave a passage (or two) from her book:🌬 💫”Italian Witchery is indigenous. The lineage practices were handed down to women who, often uneducated and poor, had little resources other than nature at their feet, the water in the river, and the moon above. Their only temples were the forests, the caves, the mountaintops. The divine feminine, through channeling, taught the women how to use what was around them in their immediate environment.”💫 ⚡️And a quote from an Italian-American midwife Karyn interviewed, who said something, that although simple, really stood out to me, and remains in my day to day thoughts... “you and I can have these wonderful talks about the technical descriptions of these things, having learned them at this point in our lives, but we know that it happens much more naturally, and you don’t have to know what to call it to receive the knowledge.”⚡️
