"Don't ever take more from a plant than what you need,
they enjoy having life as much as we do."
Sunday we spent our afternoon in class creating the beginnings of an herbal apothecary. The class was full and we celebrated many useful medicinal plants for boosting immunity and supporting the respiratory system. Fresh locally wildcrafted elderberries stole the show with their juicy blue lusciousness.
'Tis a special and important thing to have time for women to gather, share age old knowledge, and create holistic remedies for ourselves and our loved ones. From generation to generation it has always been the women who held this task.
Together we offer information, support, and community. Our baskets at the end of class were full of immunity adaptogen tincture, mullein thyme lung tea, elderberry glycerite, herbal vapor rub, and our famous fire cider. A wonderful collection of remedies to strengthen and encourage fall and winter health. Definitely a day well spent.
