Restocking Regenerate Face Cream featuring farm-grown calendula today because I sold out my first batch!!! I’m so incredibly thankful for everyone who’s ordered and supported our farm and mission. 🙏 I’m also so encouraged by the positive feedback I’ve gotten on these products I’ve worked so hard to bring forth with love. Here’s some recent feedback I received for this face cream:
“Hi Friends! I wanted to share these AMAZING products I have been using. I got my face cream and lip butters last Wednesday and I already can tell a huge difference in my face! I literally can't wait to take my makeup off at night so I can put this face cream on! I have noticed my skin is smoother, more moisturized and my makeup goes on smoother AND it healed some blemishes up and has not made my face break out at all. I LOVE it and would highly recommend it to you!!! Laura and her family also live in Germantown and are such a sweet family! They grow their own ingredients and put so much love into their products! Check it out!”.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who’s followed along our journey and supported us!! ✨❤️🌱.
Home Cooking: Steamed Baby Potatoes in Herb Dressing • this Herb Dressing has so many uses. It’s a great recipe that I use a lot over the summer months (recipe below) • Here I’ve used mint and parsley to dress these potatoes, but you could play around with it and add different herbs using the same base recipe. It can be used to dress fish (imagine this gorgeous green colour against salmon), steaks, chicken as well as vegetables • This recipe makes a generous amount, and stores well in the fridge for 2 weeks.
2 cups fresh herbs - especially mint and parsley (I used 1 c mint, 1 c curly parsley)
1/4 cup white vinegar (or champagne vinegar, white wine vinegar)
1.5 tspn Dijon mustard
1 tspn salt
1 tspn sugar
2 large eggs plus 1 yolk (use 2 extra yolks if you’re eggs are smaller)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1.5 cups light flavourless oil (canola, grape seed)
Blend all ingredients, except oil in a food processor or blender. Gradually add oil slowly while machine is running to form a runny mayonnaise dressing. Set aside for afew hours in the fridge for flavours to develop.
Keeps for 2 weeks.
Tea blending. It’s one of my favorite practices in herbalism. But what makes a good blend? How should you balance each herb so that you get the the right medicinal value and correct energetic properties? I’ve been chatting about this all month... and today we’re going to get into formulating your blends for balance and potency.
You’ll want to start with what we call the “active” herbs, which make up the majority of your blend and hold in the medicinal intention for your tea. Next, add a “supporting herb” or two, herbs that have either the same medicinal/energetic properties as your active herbs, or that compliments them (so, for a morning-sickness blend, I might start with ginger for nausea, then add a supporting digestive herb like peppermint, or a pregnancy-supportive herb, such as chamomile for stress or raspberry leaf to nourish the uterus). Lastly you’ll want to add a catalyst herb that activates your entire blend-- usually something that is pungent and strong in taste, often with in a much smaller proportion. In the example above, if I’d gone with chamomile and ginger as my two herbs, I might add a dash of clove to bring a bit more spice and some extra dimension to the blend.
Herbs can play more than one role-- they can be “active” in one blend, but a “supportive herb” or even a “Catalyst” in another. A great example of this is Peppermint. It’s one of the more palatable herbs, and depending on the blend, could play any role.
In the comments you’ll find my top favorite blends and their medicinal intent. Want more teacrafting recipes? Download my free e-book for a complete rundown!
@Regran_ed from @alkaline_vegan_news - Follow @alkaline_vegan_news As many of you know, I have been ranting and raving about the benefits of The Grape Cure 🍇 for many months. At this point in time, I have done 3 Grape Fasts the first lasted for 14 days, the second for 9, and the third for 30 days. When I tell you I feel amazing, it is an understatement. Now please keep in mind, while on the Fast you feel horrible, sick, feverish, moody, tired, irritable, etc it is only after the fast that you receive nature’s reward. The medical properties of the grape cannot be overestimated. Salts of potash are found plentifully in grapes. There is said to be a marked deficiency of potash in the makeup of the average cancer patient. The grape is remarkable. It is the finest natural tonic in the world. It also has some vital relation to the protein base or the protoplasm of the cell and is on that account considered a quick repairer of tissue waste. As a flesh and muscle forming element, it has no rival. Before embarking on your own fast, please read the book The Grape Cure by Johanna Brandt it is cheap and a short read. Fasting may be dangerous if you do not know how to, also this book has great tips as far as how to prepare for the fast, what to eat afterward, etc. No this is not a paid endorsement, I always share things that work and this is absolutely one of them 🙏🏽 ________________________________________________________ #food#healer#naturalremedy#herbs#minerals#nature#wakeup#toxins#herbalmedicine#fasting#intermittentfasting#organic#alkalinevegan#vegan#rawvegan#electricfoods#alkalineliving#plantbased#meditation#alkalineveganrecipes#veganrecipes#detox#veganfood#alkalinefood#alkalinediet#drsebirecipes#fastingtips#drrobertmorse#arnoldehret
Tasty Tuesday Hack!
Have you started planning your Thanksgiving dinner yet? Today, I have a few quick conversion tips for using your Vitality oils in your favorite dishes this year.
Oils for Spices Conversion:
Citrus Zest = 5-10 drops of citrus essential oil
1 tsp juice = 1 drop of essential oil
1 tsp extract = 15 drops of essential oil
1 tbsp dried herbs = 1/2 -1 drop of essential oil
1 tbsp fresh herbs = 2 drops of essential oil
Toothpick Tip: For recipes that call for less than one tsp of spice and herbs, dip a clean toothpick in your oil and swirl into the recipe.
Another favorite use for Vitality oils during the holidays is to add a few drops of Thieves or Cinnamon Bark Vitality to hot apple cider as it warms in the crockpot or InstantPot. EASY and yummy!
Anyone else want to share a favorite tip or hack?
Ok, I’ve been sitting here for about 5 minutes trying to figure something out. If a parsley farmer evades his taxes, would the IRS be able to garnish his wages? Green joke tuesday slam!
Parsley isn’t just a little greenery that you throw on top of your dish to make it look pretty, well it is that too, but it’s actually really healthy for you and should be incorporated IN your dishes, not just ON. It has good amounts of vitamin K, which is great for bone health as well as a ton of vitamin C, which makes it a fantastic immune booster. Parsley is chock full of antioxidants; killing off those pesky free radicals. There is evidence that parsley is good for kidney function, joint pain alleviation, and even a fatigue fighter. As with all the plants I post, the health benefits are numerous beyond what I can list here…but who has the time to type or read all that?! So go out there and get yourself some parsley. I like it raw, chopped up and tossed into a big salad. What say you?
