Do you know how amazing and powerful botanicals are?
I love plant extracts and oils that derived from flowers, herbs, nuts, seeds, roots and berries. They are beautiful, potent, fragrant, functional, natural…
Which botanical is your favourite?
Who has experience with this mushroom?
Caesar’s Amanita (Amanita jacksonii), a beautifully colored mushroom that was presenting itself to me throughout Eastern Texas, Mississippi, and Tennessee. This mushroom is know to be a high quality edible mushroom, but being that it is in the family of Amanitas, I tend to avoid all of them. This is because the most DEADLY mushrooms out there are in this same family. Extreme caution should be taken into consideration with this family of mushrooms.
That alone has kept me from eating these. Even when my identification is 100% spot on!
So I am curious, who of my foraging friends out there have found these, and eaten them?
Wildcrafted Wellness night! We ate some great food, played with some adorable babies and tapped into our inner herbal origins to make some fun (and useful!) DIYs - 🌿Elderberry syrup
🌿Herbal Infusion Bath Salts
Plus, everyone went home with some extra goodies in their bags - tissues, tea, lozenges, and recipes for helping us get through the winter.
Thank you all who attended. It was so nice to see you! ❤️ Until next time.... 🌑🌒🌓🌔🌕🌖🌗🌘🌑 #KindAKrunchy#WildcraftingNight#Wellness#NaturalMomma#HerbalLife#HerbalInfusion#DIY#Wildcraft
Me... as Teacher... beautiful words here humbly shared... 🌿 “It isn’t often one finds themselves in the presence and space of someone with the capacity for holding, way-showing, clear seeing and deep, wild magics with such integrity, honesty and truth. Having Nymh as a teacher and guide during my 4SJ was one of those experiences for me. Her deep, full-bodied way of being everything she is and believes in is a gift to all that encounter her. She is one-who-knows. Like an inside-out drum, she wears herself in full view, in all her strengths and vulnerabilities, and in this way is able to way-show and guide others, gifting them with the same truth and understanding that can usually only come from having experienced something for yourself. Just by being her magical wild self, she leant me the strength and courage to find this wild natured being within myself, and I have been treading these beautiful wildish pathways with a deeper knowing and trust ever since. I will be ever grateful for feeling so completely and utterly seen and heard by her, so understood and held. It has been a gift walking this path with her, and is so very close and dear to my heart.” ~ Rebecca Holly 🌿 “My experience of Nymh as a SSW teacher has been a deep sense of being truly held, ‘known’, and loved. I have done many, many workshops, courses, group work etc. and never before had I felt held in such a ‘waterproof’ container. As an empath this means that I felt safe to ‘feel’. For the first time I felt safe enough to let myself be fully open in a space with a group of women journeying through sometimes emotional terrain. Nymh truly and fully met me; understood me, accepted me and, furthermore was able to contribute to my understanding of this emotional ‘permeability’, a new term for how I often feel, especially in groups of people. Nymh’s intimate, loving, and reciprocal relationship with land is at the very core of her way. This is a way that we must all re-member (because it is an old way, known somewhere in our bones) if we hope to heal our relationships… with ourselves, each other, and the planet. For this re-membering I am truly grateful. Thank you dearest Nymh.” ~ Natasha 🌿
Looking for an all-natural, organic Dry Shampoo? We've got you covered! We know that a healthy scalp is essential to nurturing vibrant, luscious, radiant hair. In a world of quick-fix solutions and time saving products, aerosol dry shampoo has taken the hair care world by storm, with spray cans available in nearly every drug store, beauty shop, and online self care retailer. However, this storm is a dangerous one! Aerosol Dry Shampoos are laden with toxins, and harmful follicle clogging ingredients that are not only unsafe for your body, but damaging to the environment. Spray formulas contain everything from LPG's (Liquid Petroleum Gas) Butane, Propane, Isobutane, Phenoxyethanol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Siloxane and Silicones, to Octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane (say that 5 times fast!), and harsh Alcohols • Nature is always enough, and our DRUID Dry Shampoo is the perfect Potion to replace those destructive aerosol shampoos. Hand crafted in small batches, enriched with silica rich horsetail, fragrant water mint blossom, invigorating wild citrus, and herbaceous white sage leaf. Our gentle, talc-free formula adds volume, refreshes tresses, gently cleanses and revitalizes the scalp for healthy, happy hair. Perfect for traveling, and even wonderful as a naturally scented body powder! Restocked in the shop, and also available in 'ATACAMA' Palo Santo Resin + Wild Rose Petals.
