New products soon to be in the shop!

I am really excited to add a new herbal face care line. I have been using my own face toner, steam and oil serum for years now, so it feels good to finally perfect my formulas (for the time being, at least) and offer them in the shop.

Another addition will be a nourishing hair oil, with jojoba oil. I love jojoba oil, it is so luxurious and is notably a little different from other oils as it seems to lock in moisture and balance oil production with long term use. At first I was concerned it would build up on the hair, but I haven’t found this to be the case at all. From my experience, it seems that waxes tend to build up, not oils.

I also have a Cedarwood and Fir deodorizing body spray. Even though the scent is on the masculine side, I find myself wearing it almost daily. I just can’t get enough of that cedar scent. » Read the rest of this entry «

arch olive treeI have just returned from an Italian vacation. Oh, the sights, the food, the plants and the ruins to be seen! One particular plant seen all over the place happens to be one of utmost importance: the Olive tree. Olive trees are all over the place. From afar they are easy to identify because of their round, squat crown and their distinctive pale silvery-green foliage. » Read the rest of this entry «

What is it about poppies?

I don’t get them, but as if I’m entitled to understanding. They are so tender, fragile, delicate, finicky. Their petals are like tissue paper and their fuzzy buds look like they could barely be supported by their thread-like stem. One little bump and the plant falls over. But yet they contain some incredibly powerful medicine, and not just the opium poppy but many plants in the family (Corydalis, California Poppy for two). » Read the rest of this entry «

An ideal Saturday afternoon for me consists of a walk, a nap, a cup of tea and playing with herbs! I was lucky enough to spend last Saturday just so, with lots and lots of herb exploration. I had a number of ¬†orders to fill for my herb shop which included making some body sprays. » Read the rest of this entry «

Treasury tool by StylishHome.

I just wanted to share a a bit of inspiration from my main channel for {Western} herbalism at the moment, Etsy.
Joellen from the shop AuldNua curated this botanically inspired treasury. So many treasuries are made every day, hundreds? Maybe thousands? This one really stood out as conveying the dark, elegant beauty of a nighttime garden. Treasuries are a collection of items sold by the artisans, craft supply and vintage sellers.
