Heart medicine from the hedgerow
I fell down the rabbit hole with hawthorn! It started popping up everywhere with such verve, apparently that’s what happens when a plant is meant for you. I already intuitively felt it as a medicine I needed and started taking a cuppa here and there, now a tincture. What I learnt was so rich from…… Continue reading Heart medicine from the hedgerow

Fallow Times & Seedlings
Everyone has cycles of energy just as Nature is in a constant energy cycle. Winter is the obvious fallow season where the Earth and trees are bare but much life is building underground getting ready for Spring shoots. Everything has a beginning and a middle, and everything has an end until the wheel turns again.…… Continue reading Fallow Times & Seedlings
