I fucking hate plastic!!!! It is something I feel very strongly about. Our planet is overrun with the stuff. It is bad enough to ruin our habitat in our own lifetime but the legacy of the throwaway culture we currently live in will last for many generations to come. Bottles, bags, packaging, beauty products, medicines, even our birth control is made from and comes swathed in this harmful man made rubbish.
When I started looking at packaging for my products It went against everything I stood for to accept that my lovingly handmade organic products would end up wrapped in plastic. I believe that we are only custodians of this planet and I decided i would do my utmost to cherish it for those future generations. If you have ever purchased from Elemental Earth you will know my product packaging is paper, aluminium or glass. No plastic is used in my wrapping. All my packaging is biodegradable, able to be recycled, reused or refilled.
So this Christmas we have power....the power of the consumer. As a single person you also have the power of choice. Every little bit counts. Do you want to choose a plastic toy that will be played with for a year then thrown in to landfill to desecrate the planet for 100's if not 1000's of years. Do you want to choose plastic decorations, vac wrapped beauty gifts, individual food items on polystyrene trays and wrapped in ever increasing amounts of more plastic.
If you don't then vote with your purse this season. If we don't buy it, then maybe the businesses concerned will think twice . How else will things change for the better. Help to save our wildlife and our planet and say no to plastics this Christmas.
If you agree comment ...I say no to plastics #saveouroceans#recycle#plasticfree#findanotherway#noplastic#votewithyourmoney#respectourplanet#motherearth#ihateplastic#elementalearthcraft#shamanism#greenwitch

💕When I started feeling better from those rough years, my first trip was to my Aunt Tova’s house in the Catskills. 🌲🌳🌿 (Tova means in Hebrew Good or Pleasing) Her knowledge of Herbal Remedies, Sass+ Patience mixed with her Israeli/Brooklyn Matter or Fact Ways was exactly the Support I needed. 💕💕 It was a new beginning in the Homeopathic front for myself but soon realized there was a whole Community of Plant Lovers, Herbal Goddesses and Mother Nature Priestesses out there just waiting to hug me in. 🍵🥬🥑🍓🍋 Feeling extremely grateful for my Aunt today+ all those supportive woman out there. Xoxo 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 This Series of Forget Me Not Flowers are from the beauties we collected that day.
EARTH ENERGY MEDITATION...
Allow your feet to be bare and find a comfortable seat on the earth.
Close your eyes and breath more deeply.
Feel the supporting soil underneath. Imagine roots stemming out from the base of your spine and into the core of the earth.
Reach as far down as you can imagine, extensive roots surrounded by and connected to Mother Earth.
Spend a few breaths embodying this strong, supportive and grounding energy.
This connection is always available to you. Return to your heart center and send gratitude to Mother Earth and out into the world.
All finished up with my Mother of the Mountains 🌟🌟 wanted to post a whole backstory and detail shots but Instagram keeps wigging out on me so well start with this 🙄 she was a slow and steady process (you can peep progress pics in my story) but she's finally done and I'm so pleased with the outcome!

A wholesome diet is paramount for the flow of milk. When breastfeeding the consumption of enough calories will prevent mom from feeling light-headed etc during nursing.
Baby will get all the nutrients he/she needs, but it will leave you with nothing. Make good choices about what you're eating — lots of veggies and healthy proteins.
Don’t forget to also wear comfy nursing clothing, bras etc, something that you can easily maneuver for nursing. Making the experience pleasant for both mom and baby.

Here comes the rain. From Parley ambassador @garybencheghib:
During the first rainfalls in Indonesia, rivers, guts and streams spew out plastic trash along with everything on its path. All this plastic has ended in the Citarum River and is now on its way to the ocean. We are working on forming a collaboration with the Indonesian army and community groups, who are already trying hard to control the situation.
Storms come in eyes and wildfires
It’s desire breaks hearts into shards that fly into us,
I hold onto the grass and try to stay whole.
Men strangle themselves in neckties competing for the biggest pile
thatll distrub sight from his nudity and emotional transparency.
They won’t align with her beauty.
So as they climb
Mothers cry under the physical thumb, he reaches for his gun
And shoots into the sky.
The blue space dies and returns bullets to the water of South Africa.
Children raised only to follow the mascare playing in 350 count plastic blocks hiding from outside rocks.
We drive into tomorrow never to stop and pee along the way
but hand bag our dogs shit on grassline along the highway.
Miles and miles away, oil is the runaway
pulled deep from the mothers core to blacken daily doses in horrors of our self desturction.
Who’s gonna hand fix our shit?
