Otira River Soap, freshly cut. On a recent mum and daughter trip to the West Coast, we stopped and collected water from the pristine Otira river in the Southern Alps of New Zealand. I knew a swirling soap was calling to be made from its waters. I created a scent that reminded me of the cool, damp, sub-alpine forest using essential oils of peppermint, rosemary and cedar wood. This has blended beautifully with the raw unrefined cocoa butter that is also in the soap. No palm oils or animal products or micas. Using only natural oils, colours, butters and essential oils. #soap @snif_natural_soapmaking #organic @go_native_nz #wildcrafting #organicsoap #handmadesoap

Check out this bright pink baby! 💖 Our Prickly Pear Cactus Wine is coming along quite well! 🌵 Bubbling in the airlock finally decreased from every three seconds to every 10 seconds- But it is still too sweet from the prickly pear fruits that @thekingofshinythings and @iamthecarpenter foraged - So its time to add another round of Honey and let it ferment in the jug for a few more days! Hoping for a little less sweet and more dry for the final wine!

Fire Cider🌱Elderberry Syrup🌱 Shower Steamers. I made these. With plants I grew, plants I foraged, plants from the market and essential oils. A year ago I never would have been confident enough in my knowledge to make plant medicine to support my own body systems. I’m actually going to miss doing homework like this and learning from some of the most intuitive medicine makers. 🌱🌺💗

⋄ DANDELION FLOWER OIL ⋄ infusion oil with the divine solar energy of dandelion flowers one of the bio regional plant medicine oils that will make up my up & coming MANA OIL which I should have in limited edition for sale by early November 🌼 • The colour of the sun the essence of spring & summer, the story medicine of the fae and an amazing topical application for dry skin & swollen sore breasts anytime during our cycle, but also assists the lymphatic movement with massage on our fleshy parts in general. Such a feminine medicine, and it works with such lightness & solar “flare” 😉

If you've ever had a UTI, I bet ya never want another! Horsetail is an awesome herb for this predicament. It is astringent and mildly diuretic, helping to tone & tighten the urinary tract- which is especially helpful if blood is present- and flush out the infection-causing bacteria...98% of the time it's E. Coli. Try some horsetail as a tea for a kidney-bladder-ureter-urethra tonic. #cellfulfillment

One of my favorite #mushroomhunting and cooking friends just published his book! Congrats Chad Hyatt, I know this has been a labor of love. This is definitely the end all be all book of #mycophagy. Whereas most books and hunters focus on #wildmushrooms and tame mushrooms that are commercially available in stores and on fungi that have cultural popularity in our mycophobic culture, Chad's however, based on fieldwork and experimentation. Which is the same thing #DavidArora is doing in the new editions of #mushroomsdemystified and #allthattherainpromisesandmore where he regrets unpopularizing certain #fungi that are in different cultures considered choice. Last time I checked in on his spreadsheet for the book he was at 150+ species eaten whereas I was at a mere 80. Sadly, a lot of the very popular culinary mushrooms are actually very mediocre when compared to lesser eaten species. This book is aiming to eliminate culinary bias with solid recipes that accent specific textural and flavor nuances specific to certain fungi. It's definitely going to have recipes that are going to flip people's script on saying "I don't really like mushrooms." I'm hoping this book will put a lot of species on the map the same way David brought candy caps into culinary existence. Last time I cooked with Chad we did #yellowfoot and #goldchanterelle bison empanadas with #blacktrumpet "bacon" jam and #candycap mustard. Also a candied jellybaby salad with nuts and greens. . If you're interested in picking it up it's available at https://www.themushroomhunterskitchen.com/ but I also imagine Chad will be on the mushroom circuit promoting it this fall in case you want I signed copy. . . . . . . . . . . #chadhyatt #mushroomchef #mushroomsofinstagram #allthemushroomhashtags #mushrooms #fungusamongus #gourmetasfuck #craterelluscalicornucopioides #cantharellusformosis #craterellustubaeformis #candycaps #lactariusrubidus #wildfood #wildfoodlove #wildernessculture #wildcrafting #eeeats #feedfeed #foraging

I spent so much time on the 5 elements Because it's essential to understanding what these 3 dosha's are. .these 5 elements when forming organic bodies combine into 3 groupings.. those 3 groupings are called dosha. Dosha is a Sanskrit word meaning "an imperfect thing" or "an unseasy alliance between 2 things that aren't the same" A dosha then is a combination of 2 of those 5 elements into a substance that is only temporarily connected so they are unstable. those 3 substances are Air and space which have a kinship to one another due to their subtle nature into something called Vata. Fire and water which form an unstable alliance which is very hot and intense called Pitta. water and earth combine into a gooey sticky alliance or clay of which our bodies are made called Kapha. Vata comes from the Sanskrit word where our word vehicle comes from and it means to move. Pitta comes from the Sanskrit word meaning austerity. if you work hard at something you'll generate heatand that heat is called Pitta. Kapha has the root word meaning water. So I want you to think that in nature there are 3 departments, the moving/comunicating dept. the cooking or transforming dept and physical/sticky dept. those 3 departments are the 3 dosha's. In our body's then we have a nervous system and all that movement is done by vata. We have a fire burning inside of us and that fire is transforming everything we put in..from the food in our body's to the ideas we digest in our mind. it separates things that are useful and not useful. and Kapha is the solid and liquid substance itself, the actual tangible body.. does anyone see where I'm going with this yet? Do you remember discussing the energetics of plants..how they fall into 3 catagories..one of moisture moistening or drying or Kapha... One of temperature heating or cooling or Pitta and one of movement relaxing or stimulating or Vata. See the connection? we'll talk more about them tomorrow.. #apothecary #herbalist #herbalism #wildcrafting #plantmedecine #plantallies #naturesmedicine #naturalalternatives #naturalremedies

Star of Bethlehem is the classic trauma essence. Whether old trauma or new, it helps you find reassurance and rapidly neutralizes trauma. Practically all of us experience shocking events in our lives. A practitioner I know uses Star of Bethlehem in every combo because "Everybody's been through something." Star of Bethlehem reverses the "shutting down" effects of trauma and helps the user regain the ability to cope with circumstances with mental clarity and inner strength. Find it in our "Aftershock", "Crisis Care" and "Good Grief" blends.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #freedomflowers #floweressences #floweressence #planthealing #flowerremedy #energyhealing #energyhealer #raiseyourvibration #alternativehealth #energymedicine #floweroftheday #emotionalhealth #emotionalfreedom #healingjourney #holisticwellness #wildcrafting #wildcraft #empath #selfcare #intuitivehealer

Registration is now open for the 2019 Fireweed Herbal Apprenticeship! More than a foundational program in herbal medicine, the Apprenticeship offers students the opportunity to learn directly from the healing plants themselves. Timed with the first burst of emerging buds in spring and commencing with the fallen leaves and restfulness of autumn, the Apprenticeship takes place through the most vital time of the year when the plants are awake and abundant all around us. Surrounded by nature and the medicine plants at the farm and in the wild, a unique feature of the program is the opportunity to meet and spend time with each and every plant covered in your materia medica. Embodiment of plant wisdom is offered through lessons on herb growing, harvesting and processing, wildcrafting, medicine making, and plant spirit communion. Students will gain tools for practical application with the study of herbal energetics, constitutional theory, formulation, and more. Full course details and application at fireweedschool.com/apprenticeship. The course is filling up quickly so if your heart feels called to this training make sure to get your application in soon! “This course is essential to anyone looking to enrich their lives through experiential knowledge-based learning. From growing plants, to wildcrafting; medicine making to astrology; body systems to plant walks...It is honestly impossible to put into words all of the special qualities of this program. It is unique, and the thing about being unique is that there is nothing else to compare it to-one of a kind; rare. Jessy is fostering something extremely special with her school, farm, workshops, and everything in between... doing so with complete reverence for the earth. Not only is she herself a wealth of knowledge, but the space given for direct plant perception and communion allows for a very special type of learning, one of individual proportion. Most notably, is the lovely way this apprenticeship intrinsically creates a safe and open environment for everyone to share. Together as a class, we hold a beautiful space that enhances that heart-centred vibration we are each looking to re-kindle at our core"

I love making a tincture from hawthorn berries as a medicine for the heart. I also love to gather the leaves in spring and tincture them, then I add the blossom in may and then the berries at this time; completing the cycle and following the trees movements and encapsulating the year of the hawthorn in one medicine. ————————————— #wildfood #wildcrafting #foraging #forager #hawthorn #ihavethisthingwithnature #ihavethisthingwithplants #ihavethisthingwithtrees #herbs #herbalism #herbalist #herbalmedicine #earthmedicine #inspiredbynature #gather #gaia #plantwisdom #plantmedicine #plantmedicinewoman #plantpower #poweredbyplants #witch #brigit #brigitannamcneill #sharphamtrust #beautiful #naturelover #natureconnection #naturemedicine #natureisbeautiful

“make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.” Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild . . . . #foraging #wildstrawberries #pennsylvania #pennsylvania_wild #adventure #bethechange #wildcrafting #teachyourchildrenwell #womenwhorunwiththewolves

Snippet of a work in progress. Boy. Oh. Boy. What an alchemical time. The full moon is upon us and it's time to check in with ourselves. Have we let go of what no longer serves our highest good this cycle? Have we tuned into ourselves the ways we promised we would? Have we been willing to admit when we've been wrong? I like to keep the mantra "What you resist persists" in my head when I'm being especially stubborn. Sometimes being a warrior means fighting the good fight with yourself. . . . . #alchemy #awareness #fullmoon #acrylicpainting #plantmedicine #witchery #wildcrafting #witchesofinstagram #artistsofinstagram #flowers #hedgewitch

learning from the wisdom keepers of the forest 🍄 reveling in the honor it is to make medicine with our beloved friend and elder, Oregon Reishi ♥️ . . it’s good to spend time with the folks who know way more than you ever will - like this Reishi. The fungi and plant beings far surpass humans in their intelligence and wisdom. Beyond loving them to death, it’s one of the reasons I will spend my lifetime as close to them as possible. . . . . . . A big thank you to our friends James & Kari @naturespiritherbs who shared these freshly wildcrafted fungi from the forests around their home on the other side of the valley from us . . #ganodermaoregonense #oregonreishi #wildcrafting #wildfoodlove #medicinemaking #spagyrics

The closest I can come is to our modern view is to illustrate but think of a earth,water and air as the 3 state's of matter most familiar to us solid,liquid and gas. for matter to change from state to the other heat is needed that is fire. Ether is a little harder to grasp because even if you accept it as the space needed for things to manifest it doesn't explain why they considered it an "element" or why Nothing but empty space has a quality. Have you ever heard the term "dark matter" before? It's a term physicists use. We just recently figured out that not only is space not empty but all we know see and detect only adds up to roughly only 5%. Dark matter and dark energy describes the 95% we can't explain. The concept of the 5 elements and how they make up everything is a much more accurate and sophisticated way of looking at things then anything we have today.. We just figured out space isn't empty. They built an entire healing system based on a 5 element viewpoint. They obviously thought space was a specific something with specific qualities and attributes. They even put it into context. Herbalism has been around for thousands of years and if pick up any book on herbalism here in the west What do you get? a list of herbs with a huge list of things they treat..if you're lucky you Might get a few chapters on wildcrafting and how to make a tincture. What you're missing is why they work and how they work. Open a book on TCM or Ayurveda and what does it start with? a cosmology lesson..they give you the essential information you need to understand witch of those 100 herbs for a UTI is best for you.. Think about the past.. every culture that's been around for 5000 Years or more has a system of natural healing. They are different in some ways but they embody the same teachings why? I believe they are fragments of what used to be a universal healing system that existed in the the actual time the pyramids were constructed and they aren't tombs and even the ancient Egyptians said "we didn't build this it was already here when we arrived yet we ignore that part. Decide for yourself but you can't understand herbalism without the background. #apothecary #herbalist

Calendula flower essence fosters warm sensitive communication in those who tend to speak harshly. Those who are "too blunt" are better able to find ways of communicating what needs to be said without shredding the other person. It also helps us to recognize the creative nature of our words, and therefore is an aid to writers, speakers, teachers and prayer warriors. Calendula is especially indicated during relationship work, and for anyone whose livelihood depends upon their ability to communicate with warmth and compassion⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 by @littlehouseatl .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #freedomflowers #floweressences #floweressence #planthealing #flowerremedy #energyhealing #energyhealer #raiseyourvibration #alternativehealth #energymedicine #floweroftheday #emotionalhealth #emotionalfreedom #healingjourney #holisticwellness #wildcrafting #wildcraft #empath #selfcare #intuitivehealer

Exploring fermented roots. I'll do more experiments in spring time with all kinds of wild roots but this is also the season for sunchokes (Jerusalem artichokes). You can forage them or purchase them at some ethnic supermarkets which makes it super easy. I'll spend the next 2 weeks trying various recipes while it's in season. This is a quick ferment meant to give a bit of fermenting "umami" to the roots prior to cooking them. Very similar to fermenting potatoes. I'll go by smell...could be anywhere between 2-5 days. Maybe I'll pick a couple after 2-3 days and try them while the rest ferments longer. For flavoring, in used (quart jar) 2 crushed garlic cloves, 1/2 teaspoon smoked chili flakes and 1/2 tablespoon of French herbs (herbes the provence) mixed with a bit of black sage, California sagebrush, white sage and California bay. Gotta have some local flavors in there. Also 1/4 teaspoon peppercorn too. 3% brine: 1 1/2 teaspoons per cup of water or 8 gr per 250 ml Once fermented slightly, I'll roast them in the oven at 400 degrees and plate them with a nice crust made of local herbs and nuts. I have many more ideas but it's a start. Tomorrow I'll make one with a mix of local wild herbs with some curry, ginger and all kinds of interesting spices. Fermenting sunhokes also helps with the "flatulence" issues which quite a few people are a bit worry about. Better hurry before they're gone! #fermentation #wildfermentation #sunchokes #Jerusalemartichokes #wildfood #foraging #wildcrafting #roots #fermentingroots #nofarts #ferments

When I first read @okokocosmetiques described as an #avantgarde skincare brand, I was very confused. How could skincare be avant-garde??? After trying their formulas out for myself, I quickly discovered why. #OkokoCosmetiques is truly special, and each of their handcrafted products exhibits the labours of love that go into creating each batch. This Canadian brand has researched, trialled, and discovered how to utilize precious and rare ingredients like Dragon's Blood and Bakuchiol to make high quality green goodies that provide real results -- all while also producing totally unique textures, scents, and shades. If you love #naturalbeauty or #luxuryskincare then you can't miss out on Okoko -- head over to my full review to read more and find out how magical these artistic organic treats really are (link in bio) xx . . #naturalskincare #organicskincare #crueltyfreebeauty #veganbeauty #veganskincare #greenbeautybloggers #greenbeauty #greenliving #skincareroutine #artisanskincare #wildcrafting #organicbeauty #organicliving #organiclife #allnaturalskincare #nontoxicskincare #nontoxicbeauty #plantpowered #plantbased #ecobeauty #sustainableshopping #ecoliving #canadianbeauty #ecofriendly #dragonsblood #beautyinnature

“do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. such striving may seem admirable, but it is the way of foolishness. help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples and pears. show them how to cry when pets and people die. show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand. and make the ordinary come alive for them. the extraordinary will take care of itself.” - william martin’s tao te ching

Ask and you shall receive ☺️ I’ve been wanting to find “wild” nuts for ages but with no luck. Last week I went and sat on my usual sunny park bench munching on my usual olives and saw a piece of walnut shell on the ground. I stared at it, thinking that no one would come and crack open walnuts on this park bench in my town because no one consumes such random park bench snacks as me, and then it dawned on me. There was a walnut tree! About 15 minutes and several hundred yards later I found it, on top of a hill, its branches swaying in the wind. I sat under it in the filtered sunlight and closed my eyes. Something light dropped softly down onto the grass next to me. I looked up and saw squirrels perched in the branches, eagerly biting through the hard shells to get to the sweet nutty flesh inside. I’m so grateful for simple yet beautiful moments like this 🧡🐿🍁🌾✨
