Botanical Oracle: Plantain, Plantago major

JUNE 29, 2021

Plantain is another one of those herbs that I consider a necessity in any herbal pharmacy.....



Botanical Oracle: Hawthorn, Crataegus monogyna

The Hawthorne plant is bright flowing plant, whose berries are mainly used in jams, jellies, and syrups, but the berries, leaves, and flowers can be also used in herbal products. In folklore this tree is considered a portal two other worlds. It makes sense then why my Botanical Oracle deck would pair Hawthorne with the word Sacred.

#4 Recipe and Ramblings: We Love

I find that when you go out on a limb and communicate, this is a way both you and your partner can get closer to each other. In all of my relationships, romantic or not, I find the strongest ones are the ones where I can communicate openly without any fear of judgment or backlash. It is so important to understand but other people's emotions are not opinions.

Botanical Oracle: Foxglove, Digitalis purpurea

As we do a deeper dive into the Botanical Oracle, I think it's important to note that not all plants we discuss are safe. Foxglove is one of those plants. With all the plants in the world, there is no need to use foxglove in any medicinal capacity, and it should never be ingested.

#3: Recipes and Ramblings: Gratitude Counts

In 2012, I stepped onto the path that would leave me to where I am today. The most important lesson I learned during that time with the lesson of gratitude. Gratitude truly makes the world go round. Sometimes, the tennis balls come flying at you, and though you’re trying to hit them back or avoid them as fast as you can, you lose your strength, become exhausted, and a tiny little part of you asks why. Why am I doing this? I should just give up. This is when gratitude comes in. 

Botanical Oracle: Golden Poppy, Eschscholzia californica

California poppy is a wonderful nervine, meaning it’s an herb that works on your nervous system. Many of my clients suffer from insomnia, stress, and anxiety, so this is a go-to herb for me. Because this herb doesn’t taste great by itself, I always try to add peppermint or lavender, or even a bit of honey, to make it more palatable when I use it.

#2 Recipe and Ramblings: Think P.I.G. Diffuser Blend

The Think P.I.G. blend is one of my all-time favorite blends. Each oil used in this blend are considered woodsy oils. They are grounded in the Earth for much longer than I’ve been on this planet, and they have a type of strength that us as humans will never have. The fact they can give these beautiful scents off is just simply incredible.
