Meet my paste on beardy patch 😁 Facial with backyard yam, gotu kola and chickweed is super cooling and feels so good. Ready for a bit of a facial detox :) #transherbalism #queerherbalism #folkherbalist

Blessed samhain, all hallows eve and witches new year. Today was spent straining summer herbal honeys steeped for many months: salvia, elderflower, thyme, agastache, monarda, yerba santa. Lighting the altar and sending prayers to ancestors and others across the threshold. And to all on this plane who need them. May we continue to hold each other through the subtle breath of the plants in these deep scorpio waters. . . #samhain #scorpio #harvest #herbalhoney #monarda #beebalm #eriodictyon #yerbasanta #ancestors #allhallowseve #witchesnewyear #folkmedicine #queerherbalism

Just when I thought hydrosol season was over, I encountered this black sage. I spent today distilling these beauties for a ritual mist blend of several California native salvia species. All locally grown by caring farmers. We grow a lot of this species and other salvias in our community garden, but they are mostly dedicated to feeding pollinator frenz. . These potent trimmings were purchased from the lovely folks @steadfastherbs over the weekend, along with some gorgeous elecampane root. They are a couple of rad queer farmers/herb growers in the bay area, so check them out if you’re local! Super happy with how this turned out. Loving all the medicine this fall has brought with it, the deep shadows being uncovered and the opportunity to transform it all and grow into something better. . . #queerherbalism #blacksage #salviamellifera #distillation #alchemy #medicinemaking #autumn #hydrosol #alembic #folkherbalism

✨🌸🌑🌸✨ New moon medicines for release + renewal, for soothing + repairing, for fortification + protection. . . . 🌸These beauties are known in english as Marshmallow + Calendula flowers, known by many other names across many cultures. In Gaeilge they're known as Leamhach + Ór Mhuire, as well as many other folk names. Both hold long traditions of medicinal + magical use, which for time were said to be one in the same✨ . . . 🌸These flowers, along with some other herbs, will soon become part of a batch of tea blends for lung support, which is a common request I receive from folks once falltime descends. The changing seasons + drop in temperature has real effects on our immune + respiratory systems; so too does the fact that in many traditions (including my own), we see this season as a time when we face our grief, said to be held not only in our hearts but also in our lungs✨ . . . 🌸In Éireannach tradition it is said that marshmallow + calendula flowers help us to locate + release stagnant grief + to keep us safe from harms way. We see this physically expressed in how these flowers have expectorant actions to lung tissue, helping to thin + clear old stuck mucus so that fresh, immune-rich fluids can work to repair tissues + clear out invasive pathogens. We see this in how these plant helpers soothe inflammation, ease irritation from coughing + lubricate dry, irritated lungs. Their virtues of moistening + healing tissues of mucus membranes makes it harder for pathogens to invade the lungs. This is reflected in the belief that these plant helpers protect us from further harms while we are facing + releasing our grief✨ . . . 🌸I've recently taken space from a few friendships that have been feeling increasingly deceitful + nonreciprocal. As soon as I took the space I needed, I came down with a cold + my lungs began releasing! This is no coincidence to me, I see this as my body calling attention to what I need to respectfully let go of. Marshmallow + Calendula flowers have been deeply soothing allies to me in this process; my intentions for sharing all of this is that they may assist you as well. 💗Sláinte mhaith✨

🌹HUGE thanks to all who've bought these Hearts Ease Elixirs + helped raise $ to support low income folks to participate in @rootsofresistance beautiful knowledge sharing opportunity, SANKOFA: Reclaiming healing traditions of the African diaspora. Check out the link in Sade's bio for more info + to see ways to support✨ . . . 🌹Money transparency: Total $ from potion sales was $517 in canadian funds! After paying for materials costs ($90 for tincture alcohol, raw honey + bottles), converting the funds into American currency + paying the PayPal conversion fees, that amount is $333 USD. I've sent the funds to Sade @rootsofresistance this morning + am feeling so grateful for everyone who participated, shared the wealth + got themselves some potent heart mending medicine at the same time! . . . 🌹I'm sharing these details for transparency but also in hopes that it'll inspire other folks who make/sell herbal remedies to engage in (more) resource sharing by doing fundraisers in a similar way. As a very low income person, I have little $ to offer as support but as an herbalist I have lots of medicine to share which, with some effort, can turn into $$$ that can then be donated to badass people + their badass projects. When I have materials costs covered by the funds raised, I'm able to utilize my time + labour to raise $ even when I have little-to-no $ of my own to share. Make sense? Feel free to msg me if ya have questions abt how to do this kind of thing. . . . 🌹Yt folks in particular: I'd realllly love to see more of yall raising + sharing monies for BIPOC folks + their badass projects. It's rly the least we can do, considering that we constantly benefit from the historical + current oppression of BIPOC communities. Show some love + leverage what you can! . . . 🌹I hope everyone is enjoying their new Elixirs! I'm mailing out orders this week so look out for that if you're receiving a mailed order. . . . 🌹To all who participated: Go raibh míle maith agat! Thank you + a thousand blessings of goodness to you!

Today + always. 🌼 In old Éireannach traditions, Calendula is known as Mary's gold + is a strongly protective plant, said to shield us from harms + to bring light to the shadows . . . 🌼Some ways to call in + work with this medicine are by adding fresh or dry flowers to water, hot tea + soups, by bathing with them in a tub or foot bath, by burning or smoking dried petals + by simply sitting with the fresh or dry plant. Call to them, state your intentions + ask for the help you need ✨ . . . 🌼Fellow survivors: may we all be strongly protected as we witness the continual unveiling of abusers + abusive institutions within colonial governments, within the media, within our communities + in our personal lives ✨
