You're immune system is a Amazing thing..when it's working right it's like you're own biological warfare unit for your body..You're white blood cells (or lymphocytes) are like your bodies police force that checks the ID of every cell that it come across to see if it's harmful or not. if it encounters a harmful substance like a virus or bacteria that it's never seen before it will in a way analyze it and create specific antibodies to fight it adding it to you're immune systems database. if it does recognize it then the bodies defenses kick in. As amazing as your immune system is it is capable of mistakes and  that's what an allergy is..The first time you encountered that substance you're allergic to your body missidentified it as a foreign invader. We aren't really sure why this happens.(.perhaps you were sick and had a weakened immune system the first time you were stung by a bee so the body thought it was more flu virus .)
The substance you're allergic to is called an allergen and can be anything even your own body. It's important to think of symptoms as an intelligent response by your body which is why I'm taking the time to tell you what's going on to see how the herbal actions mitigate those symptoms. Wherever you come into contact with your allergrn your body will react to get it off by producing a chemical called histimine You itch so you scratch removing the allergen..watery eyes and runny nose or sneezing to flush the allergen out..other things like food born allergies can be much more severe for example causing localized swelling in the mouth and throat.unfortunately the attack can range from uncomfortable to total failure of the organism it's protecting. We went over the anti-catarrhal action to help with the runny nose we will talk about reducing the swelling next.

So what's the pic got to do with herbalism? Nothing..but it does illustrate what I wanted to Mention about the my post the other day..those labels are there because we live in the most litigious country in the world so consider this my warning label or correction..
When I posted yesterday on goldenrod it was pointed out to me in a comment that I had given the impression however unintentionaly that either there is no such thing as a goldenrod allergy.or that you are mistaken if you think you have one so it's ok to have. I truly hope no one got that impression and even though it was only one person that mentioned it but I immediately saw how I made such a colossal blunder and it wasn't in the information but how I presented it. If you took the first. Few sentences out of context it did appear that way..normally ill proof read before I post but I hadn't the other day.
.The post was meant to lead into what seasonal allergies are..(tomorrow)you need to know the enemy t fight the enemy...
There is a fascinating connection between goldenrod and allergies and if you're an allergist or work in a clinical setting as I have you you may have come across the missconception ..I'm not going to get into it here it was just an interesting fact that I didn't expound upon very Clearly so BY NO MEANS TAKE GOLDENROD IF ALLERGIC .If you want to see why goldenrod is often thought to be one causing allergies there is plenty of material out on the net in fact I recall one by AMY JEANROY called "am I allergic to goldenrod"  I always called it the ragweed connection. Which leads me to my final point..No I'm not a dr but I was a nurse in the Military and studied to be a PA but became very disillusioned With western medicine so yes I may speak with authority sometimes but if you noticed I don't give specific medical advice..I couldn't unless you my patient..many of you who have sent me DMs will attest that the first thing ill say is i can't say "take this herb" there is a whole part of herbalism called energetics that I mentioned but haven't covered but puts the right herb with the right person. .

goldenrod...what to say... well for starters I hear a lot of people say they are allergic..so let me set the record straight before I begin..you may have allergies but goldenrod isn't one of them..It's the pollen that usually causes allergies and goldenrod has virtually none. Only wind pollinated plants like ragweed cause allergies
The colonists called goldenrod tea "Liberty Tea," for they drank it instead of black tea after the Boston Tea Party. In fact, Liberty Tea proved so popular, it was exported to China!
I mentioned Goldenrod in my last post on anticatarrhal herbs for its ability to help with sinus congestion but this herb has many many other uses..it has properties that make it a likely valid remedy for colds, flu, sore throat, and laryngitis but it has a real affinity for the kidneys and is used to treat a variety of bladder and urinary tract issues (even kidney stones) primarily because it's a great diuretic (pulls water from the body facilitating urination)Tea made out of the leaves of Goldenrod (called Blue Mountain Tea) has been used by herbalists in the Appalachians for many years to relieve exhaustion and fatigue as well.. Externally, Native Americans boiled leaves and used them topically as an antiseptic and astringent for wound healing and relief from eczema, arthritis, and rheumatism. As usual I've listed a few of the properties of this amazing herb so don't blame allergies for avoiding using goldenrod..sit back one night and try a cup of liberty tea and reap the benefits of another of nature's miracles.. #foraging #naturalhealing #wildharvest #healingherbs #herbalmedecine #herbalism #herbalist

I played with herbs today for my self love bath for the new moon and It was so nice 🌿 I didn’t remember that I had so many and the smell of it was flying all around the room ✨
I’m more and more drawn to herbs. Today I took a walk in the forest to celebrate the new moon and I was looking at every plant thinking of their name and their uses
I really want to learn more about them
My mum bought me books about herbal medecine many years ago. I’ll make sure to find them and start to study 🦋

5) pink or red mucus.
this is almost always a sign of blood in the respiratory system. but don't panic yet because blowing your nose a lot will cause blood to appear in your mucus.small blood vessels can rupture from excessive force of expulsion. if you start seeing large amounts or if the bleeding doesn't stop then its time to see a Dr immediately.
6) brown mucus
Usually, if you find that your mucus has a brownish color, it’s because there is old, dried blood somewhere in your nose or your sinuses.
If you previously experienced a nose bleed or a similar nasal injury, it’s not uncommon to have old brownish blood surface after the fact.
Mucus that has been backed up for a long time, as in a sinus infection, can also appear brownish.
One other possible culprit? Tobacco. If you chew tobacco or smoke cigarettes (especially hand-rolled), you may notice the tobacco staining your mucus a yellowish brown. Same goes for just about any other restricted substance that you can chew or smoke.

7) Nobody wants to find black mucus on their hankie. Still, it’s usually not a big deal.
Black mucus is often the result of inhaling a foreign substance, like smoke, soot, or ash. This may happen if you’ve been smoking or have been around smokers (or if you’ve been in any other environment where you may have inhaled fine, dark particles).
Finding ashy snot just once or twice is nothing to worry about, but you should try to cut back on situations where you might inhale these particles. You could even consider wearing a breathing mask. Habitually inhaling foreign substances is not good for your body. In some rare cases, black or gray mucus may also signal that there’s a fungus causing your sinus issues. Go see a doctor, just to be safe

You may have heard people mentioning that yellow mucus (or phlegm) means this or green means that but there is a fount of misinformation out there so I thought I would write a short piece on what your body is really telling you when your mucus changes color..You can gain a wealth of information based on what's coming out of your body..just look at how much can learned from a stool sample..well you can tell the same from your mucus..
mucus is a part of your survival and has many uses from lubrication to trapping harmful bacteria and helping the body rid itself of it..
so let's see what Going on..
let's start with normal..
1) clear runny mucus. this is a normal healthy persons mucus color. It should be noted though that a sudden increase in production of large could be a sign that you are too close to an allergen (like those susceptible to Hay fever.) and may soon be suffering additional symptoms.
2) thick white and sticky.
this is a sign of less water in there than should be and that you could be dehydrated. if you're not dehydrated and getting enough water then it could indicate a low grade fever that is causing you to sweat. white mucus could also indicate you're about to get sick because the white color is caused by the accumulation of white blood cells.
3) yellow mucus.
this is a very clear sign something is going on in your upper respiratory system. they yellow color is actually caused by the accumulation of those same white blood cells..you see they actually have a greenish tint to them and when they accumulate in low concentration they will start to have a yellowish tint to them. this usually means an infection or really bad allergies.
4) green mucus..at this point we are no longer thinking we might get sick..if its green then we have got something and it's sticking around.
this is a good time to visit your local herbalist or Dr. if it's very thick and green. and you are coughing it up it could indicate bronchitis or possibly pneumonia in the works...and as we just learned that green color is coming from a high concentration of white blood cells

Anticatarrhals
Up until now we have only discussed herbal actions that dealt predominantly with the lower respiratory tract..( by that I mean your lungs) but what about your runny nose? post nasal drip and the like? well that's where this class of herb comes in..they will also act on mucal secretions but they tend to be effective in the Ear, Nose and throat area so they tend to shine if you have a sinus infection,otitis media (inner ear infections) or another ailment local to the specified areas. I use them in conjuction with other remedies as a runny nose comes hand and hand when treating a cold. they will either thin the mucus making it easier to expell or directly reduce the secretions all together.
The word "catarrh" comes from the Greek "katarrhein": kata- meaning "down" and rhein meaning "to flow."
herbal anticatarrhals (as with most all herbal medicines) work differently and are safer than anticatarrhal drugs and are a must have in your herbal arsenal.
some anticatarrhals include Goldenrod, bearberry and chickweed.

Holy basil or tulsi isn't like the basil you're used to cooking with. It has. A similar taste profile and texture as the basil you're used to but basil and holy basil are two totally different plants.They have different sensory properties and different applications. In Ayurveda holy basil is referred to as a "goddess incarnate" in plant form ( her name of course was tulsi wife of Vishnu.) It has been valued for thousands of years in India for its varied number of uses and has been described as one of the most significant medicinal herbs ever discovered (it's applications seem endless) I only have the space to touch on a few here but I could easily write a book on this herb Alone.
It has been said that just being near tulsi can protect from infection indeed a few leaves in your food or drinking water can kill the germs inhabiting it..it is thought just smelling it in your house can keep the family free of colds and other viral infections (exaggerated..? Perhaps but that's what is said.) Here are just a few of many many uses..
1) cure a fever..fever isn't an ailment it's a symptom that your body is trying to Rid itself of an infection and tulsi is one of the best germicides around.
2) respiratory disorders. Aside from its anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal ability it's essential oils have components that give miraculously relief from congestion..relieving and curing.
3) asthma since it clears congestion and facilities breathing its essential oils,phytonutrients and other minerals cure some of the underlying causes of asthma
4) prevents heart disease. Tulsi contains vitamin C and eugenol with can significantly lower cholesterol..
The list goes on and on from lowering stress to lowering blood pressure and reduce inflammation..it's disinfectant properties are as I said legendary and in my humble opinion are it's greatest asset..coming in handy for any instance where infection is a concern..keep this plant in your garden and im your house and see why it's been venerated in India for generations.

Since it is summer time and the gardening "season" I thought it would be a perfect time to do a series on herbs that you are already very familiar with..have growing in your beautiful garden or sitting in your spice cabinet. They are medicinal herbs that do double duty in our recipes and in our salads. They are almost in a way. working "undercover" They will have names that are very familiar to you but I'll bet they have properties that will be equally unfamiliar to you.
We have been talking about coughs and colds and I've mentioned a few herbs already but did you know get mild relief from minor cold symptoms from chewing on a few leaves of an herb that is growing in almost everyone's herb garden..
Basil.
Basils main use medicinaly is a natural anti inflammatory and contains the similar compounds as in medical marijuana but without feeling "high" . it is used by naturopaths to treat bowel inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis...
here's a quick list of other uses for this amazing (and delicious) herb.
1) Basil is a member of the mint family so it should come as no surprise that it's often used to settle the stomach.
2) To soothe a sore throat you can brew a basil tea then let the tea cool then use it as a gargle..
3) To soothe a headache add about 5 basil leaves to boiling water and continue to boil for a few minutes then cool. Sip slowly. Basil works on headaches because of it's muscle relaxing qualities so this works best on tension headaches.
4)Fresh Basil can be crushed and applied to a bug bite or sting to draw out the poisons and stop the itching
basil is a very uplifting scent and it has the same stimulating properties as mint. Helps concentration and improves mood. as with most herbs I run out of space long before I run out of properties but this will give you an idea of an herb you have probably used all your life but never really knew how beneficial it could be!

the final class of herbs in our cough part of herbal actions is herbs that fall into the "anti-tussive" or cough suppressant catagory.( think of robitussin ). This is the allopathic approach. "suppress that cough" but we are keeping in mind that we don't want to suppress a productive cough nor do we want to give a productive cough a Demulcent herb .what I and other herbalists think ( and I want you to think as well is that symptoms are intelligent responses by the body to deal with whatever is bothering it. so listen to your body and what its telling you. ( ok disclaimer here..I personally use anti tussive to refer to the suppression of the cough reflex specifically..you may see Demulcents sometimes also referred to as anti tussive) the most effective antitussive is unfortunately one that even if I could prescribe I would be hesitant on ( experienced too many of my comrades in the Military become hopelessly addicted by over prescribing) is opiates..it completely suppress's the cough reflex but at such a cost..there are plenty of herbal alternatives including a wonderful herb that ill be doing a monograph soon..my friend lactuca or "wild lettuce" or hops but such cough suppressants are not ideal treatments and could even be counterproductive if they reduce cleansing of the lungs. However, there are many cases where they provide helpful relief and they may be the only solution for coughing not due to movable irritants
I sometimes use a Demulcent mixed with a anti-tussive (and an amphoteric)
here are the indications to use an anti tussive..
1) Non-productive, severe or persistent cough refractory to expectorants ( sorry for the big word..refractory means resistant to)
2) Nervous cough
3) Cough due to external irritation or obstruction (e.g. tumour).
wild cherry bark and wild lettuce are 2 great anti tussive herbs

Demulents are herbs that are high in something called "mucilage" which is a slimy yet soothing substance..they Sooth and protect irritated mucus membranes inside the body..if you wanted to apply it to the skin it would be called an "emollient" basically anything that puts a protective film over mucus membranes is considered a Demulcent. so what kind of cough or issue would we use this class of herbs for? well yesterday we talked about expectorants and how they are used for people who have congestion and excess mucus that we need to help them expell so Demulcents would be used for that other class of cough..the dry ..irritating cough where the body is "dried out".. ( I want to point out here. that even though I'm using the term "dried out"" there is no herb that will "dry" up our mucus membranes and thank God there isn't because that would kill us..so its an expression..herbs aren't really "drying" up mucus) Demulcents are used whenever a membrane is raw, hot, irritated, inflamed or over excited. in addition to soothing an irritating cough here are some other things Demulcents will do..
1)Reducing irritation down the whole length of the bowel
2)Reducing the sensitivity of the digestive system to gastric acids
3)Helping to prevent diarrhea and reducing digestive muscle spasms
4)Easing coughing by a soothing of bronchial tension
5)Relaxing and easing painful spasm in the bladder and urinary system, and sometimes even the uterus.
there are 2 important factors to consider when using these herbs first and foremost hydration..you must encourage fluid intake...
and second .The use of demulcents or mucilage rich herbs internally may reduce rate of drug absorption by forming a semi-permeable coating over mucus membranes..In general, take drugs at least one hour prior to ingesting large amounts of plant fibre / complex polysaccharides.. other uses for Demulcents are for
1) sore throat
2) irritable bowel syndrome
3) diarrhea
4) burns
5) urinary tract irritation ( following infection)
some of my favorite Demulcent nena are slippery elm and fenugreek seeds.. #foraging #naturalhealing #wildharvest #healingherbs #herbalmedecine #herbalism #herbalist

Relaxing expectorants. are indicated when you have an unproductive cough (caused by excessive sticky mucus ) they work by soothing bronchial spasms and loosening mucus secretions.this encourages a thinner looser mucus that is more readily expelled. they are indicated for things like weariness and debilitation from repeated coughing,
spasmadic coughing and pneumonia causing inflammation and irritation to the respiratory tract.
they will have the same contradictions as the stimulating expectorants.. some great hebs that fall into this catagory are Coltsfoot. Mullein and plantain.
there is arguably another category called respiratory tonics and amphoterics . I personally don't consider this an expectorant category in itself. think of an amphoteric as food for a particular organ in the body or tissue. helping to nourish and balance it for healthy function. These herbs are particularly important to use after recovering from a respiratory infection to rebuild and restore health and function to respiratory tissue, or for protecting those who get respiratory infections like clockwork every year. In the case of the latter, these amphoteric or tonic herbs help build the resilient quality of respiratory tissue, normalize respiratory secretions, and promote normal immune system function within the respiratory tract..
when I'm putting together a remedy for a respiratory infection I'll always include these types of herbs to help strengthen and repair damage..horsetail golden seal and licorice are some great examples of this type of herb.

We started learning about expectorants yesterday and to briefly review here's what we covered so..we learned that mucus is the body's way of trapping irritants, harmful bacteria and any other particulates that could harm the body and Lungs.it's the bodys way of self cleaning and when we get sick the body produces more mucus to trap and remove what's making us sick. when we produce an excess of mucus it can impede the ability to remove it especially when there is an excessive amount or it's thick and sticky. When this occurs we use expectorant herbs to help the body rid itself of this excess mucus. we all know that feeling of chest congestion when we are weezing and can hear it rattling around when we breath this is where expectorants come in to help thin and loosen the mucus...
so let's dive in a little deeper and talk about the main types of expectorants and when to use each one.. we have stimulating expectorants and relaxing expectorants..it's the quality and condition of the mucus that determines our choice.
Stimulating Expectorants. these are used when there is an excess of mucus production. they are indicated for things like. bronchitis, emphysema and coughs linked with brinchial congestion.. they are NOT good for dry irritating coughs. things like asthma and young children. they are best used before eating and I've found that the best preparation is a hot infusion or decoction. herbs in this category are also considered emetics in larger doses (meaning they encourage vomiting) so caution in dosing is recommended. they work by increasing ( I try to avoid big confusing medical terms but I have to occasionally) something called the muccocilliary escalator. think of an escalator like in the mall going from your lungs to your mouth with muccus happily riding up and out..
bloodroot , Hyssop and our friend lobelia are some great stimulating expectorants.. Next up ..relaxing expectorants respiratory tonics and amphoterics

We have quite a few herbs for coughs. but as I mentioned previously it depends on the patient and the type of cough ..since we are on the wonderful subject of mucus Lets start there..
is your cough wet or dry?
is your cough productive? are you getting rid of mucus and phlegm? then you want an herb that will help loosen that mucus up and help the body expell it. herbs of these type are called expectorants. They promote drainage of mucus from the lungs by thinning the mucus, breaking it up and also lubricating the irritated respiratory tract. They encourage productive coughs expelling the mucus more effectively... The thing to remember here is that a productive cough is a healthy cough..you don't want to supress this one!
A few herbs in this category are Mullein , lobelia and horehound.
There are many many more but again there are more than just matching a symptom to an herb..you are matching the person to the herb but one thing at a time and its ok if you are just learning the allopathic part of herbalism right now..this is just base knowledge.. #foraging #naturalhealing #wildharvest #healingherbs #herbalmedecine #herbalism #herbalist

As I mentioned yesterday and you may well know..we can't cure any viruses.again there is debate over whether they are even alive.. I was going to go into how you can know the difference between a viral infection and a. bacterial one but honestly there is no surefire method and the goal here isn't to identify what bacteria are infecting us and use an applicable plant or herb that will act as a guided missile and take out the offender. Almost all colds are Viral and all we can do is the same thing Drs will do..treat those nasty symptoms..and that's where are herbal allies can shine..We all know those symptoms..coughing, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, headache, and fever...so let's start with the first one since there is a bit to cover here..the cough.. one of things I want people to realize is what your body is doing..and how it's communicating to you..because in a way that's what is going on..your body knows what to do and when you're sick it springs into action..
people mistakenly use the words mucus and phlegm interchangeably but they are 2 different things. Phlegm is produced by your lungs and respiratory system .mucus works to trap unwanted bacteria and allergens (such as dust or pollen), preventing them from spreading through your body and making you sick.
Your body always produces mucus, but you may notice it most when it changes as a result of a respiratory infection. Bacteria or allergens can cause your mucous membranes to become more productive, but mucus exposed to these materials also contains a substance called histamine.
Histamine causes the tissue in your nasal passages to swell and produce more, thinner mucus. This usually leads to a runny nose, as well as sneezing, itching, and nasal stuffiness.
Your mucus may also become thicker or stickier when you're sick, meaning it won't simply slide down your throat.
Instead, it may build up in your lungs and throat, causing congestion and — in severe cases — leading to difficulty breathing or swallowing.

I was going to do pain next but I'm talking with another herbal site and they are possibly interested in that article so we will switch to another area. A look at herbal actions that deal with another seasonal visitor the dreaded.. common cold.
it happens every year whether you like it or not and you're probably thinking " look outside your window Mr herbalist..it's summer time not cold and flu season. winter is months away!" and it is...I'll even concede that colds are much more prevalent in winter but we all know why that is so right? We all tell our little ones "put a jacket on or you'll catch a cold" but the truth is that jacket is not doing anything to stop them catching a cold..Now don'it get me wrong .going out into the elements without proper clothing can and will absolutely harm you but the danger comes from hypothermia not getting the flu. As you know things like the flu are transmitted by coming into contact with an already infected person. this doesn't have to be direct contact ..it can travel from the host via saliva when they cough. or travel through the air from talking closely..that's the "cold" connection to colds ..the simple fact that when its cold outside people tend to stay indoors a lot more. where it's warm..being in such close proximity to a lot of people in an enclosed space is why people get sicker more often in winter..you can catch a cold in the summer too..in fact a lot of us do..as well as allergies. We will find the same herbal allies help with colds and allergies. There's another thing I want everyone to understand (yes there's a reason I'm taking the time to explain things like how colds are transmitted and it may not seem relevant now but is important in your overall understanding.) you probably heard it before and may even say "I knew that ..no big deal" but conceptually it is a big deal..
The two principle vectors of infection Viral and bacterial. we can treat both but as you may or may not know there is not one single virus in the world we have a cure for..not one

Recently I have been forced to look back, think and act accordingly. Begin where you are with what you have...
So grateful for those who inspire me and encourage me to open this new cycle into my life. I always say that I got my herbalist PhD from Mother Nature, also the ones who have transmitted and share their knowledge with me since I am gardening. I have been trained by my Ancestors, my grandma, my Mama, my Organic farmers community and now I am trying to fulfill my destiny. Step by step, day after day... this have been in my head for years now and we all decide that now it’s the right time to give it birth. Gratefullllllllll!!! Everything is Yoga.
🌱🌱🌱
Récemment, j'ai été forcée de regarder en arrière, de réfléchir et d'agir en conséquence. Commencez où vous êtes avec ce que vous avez ...
Tellement reconnaissante pour ceux qui m'inspirent et m'encourage à ouvrir ce nouveau cycle dans ma vie. Je dis toujours que j'ai obtenu mon doctorat en herboristerie auprès de Mère Nature, ainsi que ceux qui m'ont transmis et partagé leurs connaissances depuis que je fais du jardinage. J'ai été formée par mes ancêtres, ma grand-mère, ma maman, ma communauté d’agriculteurs organiques et maintenant j'essaye de réaliser mon destin. Pas à pas, jour après jour ... ça fait des années que cela me trotte dans la tête et nous décidons tous que maintenant c'est le bon moment pour accoucher !!

Quelques conseils concernant les boissons à privilégier au quotidien : • Eau de source faiblement minéralisée pour permettre une meilleure assimilation des minéraux par la cellule. A éviter : sirops, boissons gazeuses, jus de fruits industriels. Boire en quantité suffisante soit 1,5L au minimum 💧
• Tisanes de plantes et thé (avec modération pour le thé et à distance des repas car il absorbe le fer) plutôt que le café. Ce dernier est acidifiant pour l’organisme, il favorise l’élimination du calcium, du magnésium et limite l’absorption des vitamines B (essentielles au bon fonctionnement métabolisme, du système nerveux et musculaire). • Laits végétaux à la place du lait pour les aficionados! Le lait favorise la sécrétion de mucus et est pro-inflammatoire. Limiter votre consommation si vous faites des angines, otites à répétition!
Si vous avez des questions, n hésitez pas à m écrire en MP! Sur ce bonne dégustation! .

Moxibustion! It may be getting warm out but that doesn't stop me from using moxa during treatments especially for cold or deficient conditions. This combination of points is being used to treat menstrual irregularities. The nourishing properties of mugwort, used in moxa, are great for women's health issues #moxa #moxibustion #acupuncture #chinesemedicine #balancedstoneacu

Plant ethics. When you have a rare plant, you grow it to propagatable size and share it with other plant lovers. That way if you lose yours to a bad winter, vermin, stupidity, or any of the other thousands of ways you can kill a plant, you have a place to get a new start. These double Bloodroot were shared with us last year. We are thrilled to see them flourishing after having lost ours several years ago.

I labelled the Lavender multi-purpose soap today for a big soap order🌿
I have a couple bars left on my online shop if you would like one. These bars are a 3 in 1. They are formulated so you can use them as a body-shampoo-shaving bar✨ Plus they are infused with soothing lavender and sented with 100% pure lavender essential oil so you won't attract bugs this summer⛺️🌲
I love what I do💛

Liquid sunshine✨🌼
I have a certain facination for herbals infusing in oil.
This one here is calendula flowers in sunflower oil I started yesterday.
For weeks they give slowly their beautiful properties to the oil, leaving us with a potent, rich & colored liquid we can use for medicinal and cosmetic use.
To make your own oil infusion: Choose your organic or wild plant (it can be more than one). If it's fresh let it wilt for a few hours. Gather your plant material in a clean glass jar. Usually I use the ration 1 part plant for 2 part oil or half-half for a stronger infusion. Pour the oil of your choice over the plants (olive oil or jojoba oil works well) and stir to remove any air bubble. Cover with a lid. Let sit on a shelve with undirect light for 4 to 6 weeks WITHOUT shaking. Strain and enjoy🌼 Depending on the herbs & oil you use you may use it directly on your skin, make skin serums, salves, etc. You can also make a culinary oil with for example, rosemary or thym in olive oil. YUM🌿
And please please, if possible use organic ingredients.
Have a beautiful day guys💛

Getting ready to harvest the Stinging Nettles for market tomorrow! @hfxseaportmrkt This common weed which grows prolifically at our farm is an energy boosting, blood cleansing spring tonic rich in proteins, minerals and vitamins. Herbalist Susan Weed recommends making an infusion in a quart jar by filling the jar with nettles and filling to top with boiling water, capping tightly and let steep overnight. Then refrigerate and enjoy! #farmersmarket #herbs #spring #gethealthy #loveplants #herbalmedecine
