✖️GROWING SALAD GREENS✖️ growing your own produce, really does give you a whole new level of respect for the amount of time, effort and resources that go into putting food on your plate. We don’t have a lot of space in the garden but salad greens are so quick and easy to grow in a small space. Do you have a salad garden? If not give it a go... I think you will be surprised at how easy it is. . . . . . . #vitalhealth #vitalhealthandwellness #vitalhealthnaturopathy #studentnaturopath #naturopathicmedicine #endeavourcollege #hormonehealth #adrenalfatiguerecovery #healthandwellness #healingherbs #herbnerd #natural #selfcare #selflove #stressless #womenshealth #adrenalhealth #adrenalfatigue #healthyhormones #foodismedicine #mindfulness #rest #lifepurpose #herbalism #healingpowerofnature #holistichealing #lifestyle #wisewoman #yanchep #growyourown

🍃 Movement + Herbalism 🌿 . My movement practices (MovNat and Nutritious Movement) intersect so beautifully with my other main passion, herbal medicine- and it’s especially apparent to me when I’m out in the field. . Harvesting herbs from the landscape requires physical competency. Having strength, balance, and mobility greatly improves the ease with which I’m able to grow herbs, do my job, and enjoy the process of farming, gardening, or foraging without pain or injury. . To me farming, gardening and foraging exemplify #movnatinreallife. Most of the moves we do in MovNat are directly useful to my job working on a farm -especially lifting, carrying, and ground movement, but all contribute to my overall sense of physical capability. Additionally Nutritious Movement offers me ways to rewild my alignment, restore injury-prone places, and improve my movement quality. . Being comfortable working outdoors all day, exposed to the elements, and oftentimes barefoot and covered in dirt, is a requirement of working on a farm. It’s also a big help for my MovNat practice, which emphasizes nature immersion and the ability to move well in a wilderness setting. They reinforce each other. . Herbs are nature’s original supplements and are extremely useful for supporting movement practices and active lifestyles. They can help maintain overall health and wellbeing and/or support specific body systems in need. Herbs can help with sleep, stress, allergies, musculoskeletal issues, inflammation, pain, and overall physical and emotional resilience. A bonus is increased amount of wild nutrition in our diets. . Both herbalism and natural movement are important elements of a #rewilding lifestyle and happen to be the two pieces that I know best and emphasize most in my own life. While oftentimes I’d #ratherhuntgather I am grateful that my farming job allows me to practice these both simultaneously on a regular basis. I’m constantly discovering more ways that these lifestyle practices are intertwined, fit together, and support each other! . 🌿🍃🌿🍃💜🌿🍃🌿🍃 . #movnat #movnatwomen #nutritiousmovement #naturalmovement #rewild #rewildyourself #movementmatters #moveyourdna #herbalist #herbalism

Hello IG👋🏽 Here’s my first photo, morning sun on my face 😅 with one of my #plantallies Holy Basil, also known as Tulsi🌱 • Tulsi is one of the herbs that the first time I taste it, I felt her effects on my body immediately, but specially on my mind🌀 •one of the herbs that I incorporated in my morning routine for a while & I’m so thankful for the insights & inspiration she gave me. • #tulsi helps me clear my mind from thoughts that are not serving me, helps me notice the toxic patterns/thoughts process I’m repeating, when dealing with stress. • The cutie in the photo grew from the seeds on one plant that didn’t survived last winter 😅🌀🌀🥰 • We spread the seeds in different occasions and on different pots. When we came back last July from our first trip in the van, three plants were growing in the garden💚

There is a research that described the multi-herbal medicine Gongjin-dan enhances memory and learning tasks via NGF regulation. Abstract The effects of Gongjin-Dan(GDJ) on NGF mimetic activity in PC12 cells and the induction of NGF secretion in primary astrocytes. Moreover, we also measured neuron survival by MAP-2 staining in an immobilization stress rat model and induction of long-term potentiation by the MEA system in rat hippocampus slices treated with dexamethasone. The behavioral syndrome by novel object test was also performed in mice. GJD increased neurite outgrowth in PC12 cells and NGF secretion in primary astrocytes. Also, it reduced neuronal cell death and increased long-term potentiation in the rat hippocampus. Moreover, the number of entries, the time spent and the distance moved in the center area of the test region by the mice was increased by oral administration of GJD in comparison with the distance moved over the total area. These data suggest that administration of GJD may improve memory and learning tasks via NGF regulation, and that it may have a potential for multiple function neuroprotection via NGF regulation.

I still haven't gotten into a groove with this page, still unsure what caption to write, what hashtags work, what time to post. But I think I came up with a solution to one. Rather than do a half-assed caption that I'm not 1000% proud of, I might begin putting poetry as my captions if I can't think of something. What do you think?

Fall calls for a warm soak in the woods. This is the closest you can get to the woods in cold winters. . . Every herb included in this floral and botanical bath soak has a thought behind it and the magnesium in the salts soothes the sore and tired muscles. It really smells like meadows full of wild flowers in bloom on shady summer mornings!

You all, I'm feeling so good about this!! Today is an important day for the Earth, as we contemplate and discuss what climate justice means. In my opinion, one of the most healing things we can do for the Earth right now is to plant trees in a thoughtful way. _ Joyful Roots has found the most amazing organization to partner with to plant trees and we just planted our first 50 trees with @treesisters_official! _ Tree Sisters is a non_profit devoted to re-robing the Earth in green and empowering women worldwide. Now, when you purchase products from Joyful Roots, you will be planting roughly one tree for every $10 you spend!! This is part of the shift from consumers to restorers of this Earth!! Thanks for being a part of this you all. _ Let's keep planting trees!! 🙌🌳🙌🌳🙌🌳 _ #joyfulroots #twitter #farmtoface #slowbeauty #allnaturalskincare #faceoil #cleanbeauty #apothecary #herbalism #plantmagic #witchesofinstagram #allnaturalbeauty #earthmagic #earthchild #spiritjunkie #lawofattraction #ritual #lightworkers #spiritualpath #magicpotion #witchycommunity #reforestation #restorerspecies #treesisters #rituals #alchemy #priestess #wildwoman #planttrees

🖤🌿🔥💨 smoke cleansing...removing the negative energy that has found its way into my life, my space, and my being. It’s good to take time out of our busy days to let go of whatever it is that we’ve been carrying around with us, to release anything that is holding us back, and to find peace with whatever is weighing heavy within us. And just as it is important to cleanse, it is equally important to draw in positivity energy. After a smudging ritual I take time to run my aromatherapy diffuser or burn some incense to bring happy, loving, peaceful vibes into my space. I love using lavender, lemon, or peppermint essential oils during this or burning patchouli, cedar, or lavender incense sticks. . . . What’s your favorite energy cleansing/restoring ritual?

Some lemonbalm from the herb garden back home. I was fortunate enough to pot myself some to bring back with me too. Mmm I love her. They dont sing :sweet Melissa: for nothing. Amiright? This was one of the first herbs I ever tasted. There used to be a lush breezy mound of it in the corner of the garden as a kid. And then mint, and then feverfew here and there, curly parsley, frequent patches of chives, thyme- the outside lined with peony, chamomile, ladys mantle, more thyme, oregano, forget-me-nots in spring...man it feels like lifetimes to review sometimes- so much so that it knocks the wind out of me and gives me grief. But I love it. Here for it. Acknowledging all the spaces we can extend from and hold offering, go through and come to::::the process of saying yes and simultaneously letting go.

White Water Lily ~ Nymphaea Odorata ~ Little nymphs floating on the water. Representing purity and chastity. The Mayans revered them as sacred symbols of the Earth. They clean and filter the water for their fellow plants and creatures inhabiting the water with them while also providing shade. When the flower blooms, it spirals itself under water where it transforms into a fruit until it releases seeds that float back up to the top of the water until they bury themselves into the mud ready to take life again. She brings her watery properties to the body by cooling and soothing inflammations in the eyes, face, throat, and mouth. An old folk recipe: mix the roots with lemon juice and apply to skin blemishes. I look at this plant and see how it offers up its help to better its environment. This is a natural process and urge to live in a clean and healthy home. May we all be more like the Water Lily and work to improve the quality of air, water, and harmony of home for our neighbors and next generations. #herbalism #reverseclimatechange #waterlily #nymphaea #waterplants

WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT: We’re very excited to announce our herbalist, Holly Morrison, who will be on site on Saturday sharing with us her wisdom of the plants! More on the workshop and about Holly below! . The Magical Use of Herbs . Plants have been used by our ancestors since the dawn of time to help cure a cough, soothe an aching tummy, increase fertility in man and beast, ease childbirth and sweetly scent the dead. This workshop will look at the rarely talked about uses of magical herbs to increase luck, to open the road to success, to hotfoot enemies, shut up a gossip or scold, to increase chances during card games and especially for protection of the house and farmyard, not to mention match making and fertility. We will discuss herbs easily found in the kitchen and yard that are useful in the magical realm as well as some simple spells to ensure success. There will be time for questions at the end and a few books that might be of interest will also be available to purchase. It is not necessary to believe in magic to attend this workshop and children are always welcome. . Holly Morrison is a registered nurse, herbalist and druid. She was trained by Kat Maier at Sacred Plant Traditions in Charlottesville, graduating from the Clinical Herbalist training in 2011. She found her interest turning to magical herbalism when she began to look closely at her ancestors and imagine their lives in prehistoric Britain. Her mother was the wise woman of her suburban neighborhood and brought Holly and her 9 siblings up to believe in reincarnation, channeling from “beyond” and communicating with nature spirits, devas, tapping into earth energies and ley lines. Holly resisted most of her mom’s teachings as long as she could but eventually succumbed to the allure of the Otherworld! Her mother passed on a lot of information to Holly before she transitioned in June and since then she can’t get enough of that “old time religion”, pre- Christianity. She has been a member of OBOD (the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids) since May 2018 and is also involved in local Pagan groups who practice earth-centered religions. . . . #mountainrunjam #workshop #herbalism #plantmedicine

Fear can be the greatest obstacle we face as we work through our shadow.

Mother Nature so graciously takes care of all Her creatures, big and small. The more I learn about herbalism and all the amazing plants that She’s put here for us, the benefits and power of these plants we grow up seeing as ‘weeds’, the more I look at the beauty of nature in awe. I can’t wait to dive deeper in, live in a place where I can easily and readily forage for plant medicine, and learn more about the gifts that we’ve been given while putting them to good use✨🍃🌻 Here you see Goldenrod and Queens Anne’s Lace. Both having extraordinary medicinal benefits. Goldenrod is great for relieving inflammation and joint pain, just to name a few. Queen Anne’s Lace is a powerhouse for women’s reproductive health, being used as a contraceptive, as well as supporting healthy kidney function!

Exciting discovery today, one of my baby Elders has a cluster of baby berries! It must have flowered while I was away. I was expecting them to put all their energy into growing into their new place this year but I guess this one was feeling confident. . #herbalism #californianativeplants #growyourownmedicine

🌹🌗🌿⚡️🌻🔥 Plant Readings are back!! 👐👐👐👐👐 Need a little guidance? Curious about the energetics of plants? Plant Readings are a service I developed as a way to help people receive healing and to build a connection to the plant allies that are reaching out for them. Similar to a tarot reading, I use a combination of Plant Oracle Cards, Pendulum, and Reiki, to provide you with energetic support and clarity. At the end of each reading you will receive a print-out which includes channeled messages for you, a flower/gem essence suggestion, and your plant oracle description. 🕯🕯🕯🕯🕯 "Mona's intuitive plant reading was just what I needed to feel some extra grounding during an overwhelming time. As a solopreneur, I work a lot and while I usually make time to be outside, I was feeling disconnected from Earth and the session was able to plug me right back in. Am so grateful for Mona's wisdom and guidance, her divination superpowers were spot on." - Rebecca .... Booking now!

This quote is beautiful! I dream of a big rambling backyard for my girls, that is unmanicured and wild. Where they can dig, make mud, scribble treasure maps with chalk, build forts, and explore all day without me worrying about something getting "ruined". This was basically the backyard of my childhood. We had free reign! I didn't realize at the time what a wonderful gift that was from my parents, that the yard was there for us to deconstruct and reconstruct as many times as we liked without comment or intervention. Kids have less and less of this these days, and in home and school environments alike they are often hovered over and have their forms of expression heavily directed. Unstructured time outside is so important for children, as numerous studies now show. I'm so grateful for this element from my own childhood 🌲🐞🌻🐝🌿🕷🌷🐜🍃 . . 📷 artwork source unknown, please tag them so I can credit if you know them! . . . . . #naturopathy #naturopath #sydneynaturopath #nutrition #nutritionist #sydneynutritionist #naturecure #watercure #hydrotherapy #plantmedicine #plantmagic #herbalmedicine #herbalism #kidshealth #childrenshealth #unschooling #forestschool #unschooled

Happiness is only what you make of it. When I was younger I struggled with the dreaded question "what do I want to be when I grow up". After a very long time of trial and error I finally made my way towards complementary alternative medicine. I have always been a bit of a "health nut" but my passion for this field grew deeper as I explored alternative healthcare. Preventative health is so important in living a long and prosperous life. Herbalism, holistic nutrition, aromatherapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, chiropractic, along with many other fields in CAM are great resources to use. Holistic care is so important because it views the individual as a whole.💡💭 The mind-body-spirit connection must be in balance for optimal wellness. 🧘🏻‍♀️ Here I am today, I have successfully registered my company in ME (moved from NYS), and my online apothecary has been up and running for two years! (another restock soon!) One of the biggest things I say when asked about a career in herbalism is that proper education is absolutely necessary! I see so many posts on how that doesn't matter but it does. Invest in your future!

. Last Days by Mary Oliver . . . Things are changing; things are starting to spin, snap, fly off into the blue sleeve of the long afternoon. Oh and ooh come whistling out of the perished mouth of the grass, as things turn soft, boil back into substance and hue. As everything, forgetting its own enchantment, whispers: I too love oblivion why not it is full of second chances. Now, hiss the bright curls of the leaves, Now! booms the muscle of the wind. . . #secondchances #now #timesarechanging #maryoliver #poetryeveryday #grateful #gratitudeattitude #lajardinera #homegarden #endofsummer

Why is this the first time I've seen seeded watermelon all year....scary times we live in. Every watermelon I seen was seedless here in NJ. I just happened to be going out to get some lunch and found it at a farmers market across from where I work🤷🏾‍♀️. . . . Seeded Watermelon is an excellent way to detox and also stay hydrated. I take them and juice it. The Vitamin C , B6, A, Magnesium , helps to keep your skin glowing. . . It also: *Lowers risk of heart attack *Reduces muscle soreness *Pushes out toxins *It's known be "Natures Viagra" wink wink. *Add moisture to eyes *Improves digestion . . The season is pretty much over but you can still find a few hanging around😊

New England aster is the prettiest of all asters that grow near me but not the most prolific. My land right now is loaded with white - pale violet asters, these deep purple beauties are relegated to the wettest, lowest area of my wild, overgrown meadow. There are a lot this year, so I'm making a tincture. . . New England aster isn't a common herbal remedy, in fact I knew nothing of it until reading jim mcdonald's wonderful and thoughtful work on the subject. It's a nice sticky resinous flower, more medicinal than the paler varieties, and has a helpful action on the respiratory system. Lotta folks report its usefulness in opening up constricted airways. In the five years I've been aware of this remedy, I haven't experienced any real airway constriction or major congestion to test it out on myself ...but if this is something you experience, in six weeks or so I'll have tincture of fresh flowers (and some leaves) you might want to give a try! . . . I enjoy walking through the field and nibbling on these flowers. They impart a nice subtle relaxing quality that make my rural ramblings that much more enjoyable. Come to think of it maybe I do experience a sense of "head clearing" while nibbling. Hmm. . . . . #herbal #herbalism #herbalist #sustainableherbalism #appalachia #northernappalachia #wildmedicine #wildflowers #wildflowersofinstagram #fallflowers #folkherbalism #plantmedicine #kitchenwitch #september #nepa #rurallife #poconos #plantbased #hedgewitch #wetlands #herbalmedicine #breathe #ruralamerica #greenwitch #selfcare #communitycare #bioregionalherbalism #fall #flowersofinstagram #monarch

Today’s #wildcraftingwednesdays plant is: goldenrod. It’s so great I have to share again! Solidago means “to make whole” and does really benefit the entire body. The indigenous peoples here in the Americas, as well as ancient (and current) peoples in Europe and Asia have used this herb effectively for centuries. Germany has officially listed goldenrod in their current pantheon of medicinal remedies for general use. Goldenrod should be harvested before the flowers bloom completely, if drying, or fully open to tincture it. All aerial parts of the plant are what I use. The most famous use for goldenrod is its action on the urinary tract and kidneys. It is antibacterial and antifungal, astringent and anti-inflammatory. Solidago aids in clearing kidney stones and UTI’s. It has a diuretic effect and can dehydrate if additional fluids are not ingested. Goldenrod also strengthens the vascular system, treats internal bleeding, and is a fantastic expectorant during times of cold and flu. It also promotes sweating, so is useful when a fever is present. Goldenrod also helps ease and soothe diarrhea and is carminative (eases gas problems). The leaves can be pounded and used as a poultice on external wounds, or on achy arthritic joints. There are many who get relief from seasonal allergies by taking goldenrod as well. Goldenrod flowers can be dried and made into a tea, tincture, or infused into oil. The leaves can also be dried and made into a tea - this is historically known as Blue Mountain Tea and was one of the tea replacements that colonials used in the aftermath of the Boston Tea Party. Note that some people may have an allergic reaction to touching the plant, so care should be exercised when harvesting or using. Also, while there is no research to indicate goldenrod is unsafe, for those persons with severe kidney disease, compromised heart function, or may be pregnant, use of solidago is not recommended. I suspect this is due to the diuretic and astringent properties, but cannot find anything more concrete in my studies. If harvesting goldenrod, always be sure of the identification because there are some toxic similar plants, and avoid sprayed areas.
