#Linden ( #Tilia sp.) is a large tree with heart-shaped leaves and yellow/white flowers, beloved by humans and #pollinators alike. The flowers are a gentle, sweet nervine, that also soothe bellies and lower blood pressure. It's demulcent, so it's a nice addition to teas that need some smoothness. Linden's great for anxiety, sleeplessness, tension, mild depression, lack of focus, nervous or headachey hypertension, and nervousness held in the heart. Flowers can be dried, tinctured, or made into tasty cordials and shrubs (which is what I've got macerating now!) #minimonograph #herbalism #queerherbalism

I think I first became interested in growing herbs because @kaikrupa is an amazing, intuitive, creative chef, and I loved (and still love!) the idea of being able to grow things for them to utilize in the kitchen. Also, my parents are hippies and I would often get “herb drops” as a remedy to a cold or other ailments as a first response. It’s only been in the last several years that I’ve really come to find a passion for growing herbs of all sorts - culinary & medicinal, and am slowly learning how to use them. There are a couple fantastic queer herbalists I follow on IG - @catalystcommunityherbals & @ergifarmsandapothecary that have been very inspiring. And I also recently started participating in an intuitive plant medicine course offered by @onewillow_apothecaries, who btw is a great ally who openly encourages conversations about cultural appropriation and is aware of pronouns within the lgbtqai+ community. 🌻🌱✨ Last December the Thomas Fire broke out right across the valley from us (California’s largest recorded wildfire), and we watched it creep across the mountains every day and night, feeling utterly helpless. I was worried about some family and friends who were in the thick of it getting smoke damage to their lungs, had read about horehound being really beneficial to lung health, so I decided to make a tea for them, since we have horehound growing wild. I consulted on the mix with @catalystcommunityherbals , and quickly dried the appropriate herbs in the hot dry winds that were fueling the fire. It was the first time I felt like I could do something helpful/useful in those overwhelmingly stressful days/weeks. 😔🌿🍵. The last pic is the resulting tea recipe. I’ll give descriptions of the other pics in comments. Thanks for reading another long post.

Happy solstice y’all (and a class announcement!). Let’s welcome in some serious changes with this new cycle... please... Lordess knows we need them on so many levels. On a personal level, I’m welcoming in a little more teaching into my herbal life. This image is from a sweet workshop I led today at @johnmastersorganics (who were lovely to work with, thank you!). I’m also psyched to say I will be returning to the @cshs.herbschool later this year to teach Gender 101 for Practitioners/Trans Health to their year 2 students, and I will also be co-teaching a Trans Competency for Practitioners class at the Portland Plant Medicine Gathering in the fall with @omgwhatevsss. I hope to see some of you there irl! ☀️🧡💥 #herbalism #queerherbalism #herbclass

Happy Pride! 🌈 If you’ve seen Puddlewitch at markets, you know I get a ton of support from my amazing partner, Aro. This little business is powered by queers and we channeled our best Power Lesbian vibes into these colourful hives, soon to be full of bees! I have complicated feelings about pride celebrations, but I’m always here for queer and trans folks, especially two spirit people and queer and trans people of colour who are doing amazing work and making things better for our whole community. Here’s to trans and queer liberation for all! #pride #pridewinnipeg #introvertqueer #lesbianhomebody #beekeeping #gayhives #queerherbalism

Magic is everywhere. We don’t need books or even ancestors to learn from. It’s in our DNA. We just have to remember. Last night I experienced some heartbreak. I’m grieving and I will be ok. This morning I woke up and a friend sent me a message saying she dreamt I was upset, someone wasn’t acknowledging our connection. These things are not coincidence. They are magic. I’m drinking a cup of motherwort tea for support and sitting with the birds in the morning sun. This beautiful marsh marigold is magic too. It’s edible and medicinal but can be very irritating. It must be cooked well. It’s reminding me this morning that everything requires labour and everything is magic if we have the patience and time and find it. What magic have you experienced recently? #plantmagic #queerherbalism #magicDNA #plantallies #motherwortheart #magiceverywhere

✨🌿Nettle medicine 🌿✨ These fierce plants are some of the first to show up in my gardens in early spring. While most plants are just waking up or still sleeping, Nettle braves the cold + bursts forth at rapid speed. It can be hard to think of a plant as moving fast, but if you consider that they usually reach maturity + reproduce in 1-2 years, I'd say they move much faster than we do as humans. It's all about perspective 🌿 . . Nettle is part of many medicine traditions as it's native to multiple continents. In Irish, Nettle is know as Neantóg + has long been utilized as medicine, relied on as sustenance food + woven into durable clothing. Those badass waterproof capes that the Éireannach//Irish people wore/wear? They're traditionally made of tiny Nettle fibres, gathered + spun by hand in an extremely time consuming labour of love 🌿 . . In Irish tradition we know Nettle as a nourishing, restorative + cleansing medicine when taken as tea or eaten as food. It's taken throughout the spring to "cleanse the blood" which speaks to its virtues of nourishing + strengthening the function of the urinary system, kidneys + liver, organs which support the body's natural self-cleansing process 🌿 . . Nettle is a classic remedy for rheumatoid + osteo arthritis, bcuz with regular use it helps the body to clear out acids that become stuck within the joints, acids which eventually erode bones + connective tissue. Nettle is infamously used as an external remedy to reduce pain + swelling of arthritic joints; to do so, the fresh plant is rubbed (or smacked!) on sore areas which at first causes stinging + redness but soon leads to reduced inflammation + a dramatic reduction in pain that can last up to a week! 🌿 . . Nettle is nutrient dense, high in vitamins A, C + K, high in iron, calcium + protein. Nettle was one of the wild foods that helped folks survive during the great famine, when British colonizers + their military starved out the Irish people causing over a million to die. That's a post for another day, but feels important to honour this plant by mentioning 🌿 . . Today I'm harvesting Nettle to make medicine for my next Herbshare csa. Link in bio if ya wanna join!🌿😘

✨ Dandelion medicine ✨ I've been unearthing dandelion roots + making dandelion medicine for the past cpl weeks since the soil thawed. Root harvesting is a labour of love; Deep, meticulous digging is required to not break the long tap roots, care + attention is needed to help earthworms safely untangle from roots + multiple, thorough washes are needed to prepare the roots for medicine making. I like to think that the medicine of roots works similarly in our bodies, slowly + thoroughly working their magic . . . Dandies grow around the world + as such are part of many medicine traditions. In Gaeilge they're known as Caisearbhán + have long been regarded as a sacred plant of Brigit, as well as a powerfully cleansing medicine. All parts of the plant are usedin traditional Irish medicine, roots + leaves + flowers + sap. Dandies have long been a food source, being eaten especially in the spring + fall when root medicine is at its most potent . . . In my herbalism practice I work with dandy leaf as a nourishing, mineral rich tea to support the overall function of kidneys + urinary systems. I regularly utilize dandy root medicine to support the function of the liver, which is especially important for folks who regularly take pharmaceutical meds. I also work with dandy roots to nourish + energetically cool down all sorts of liver based conditions. Very generally, liver heat/stagnant liver energy can present symptoms like acne, psoriasis, eczema, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, extreme PMS, late/painful bleeding times, explosive anger, to name a few! I consistently see dandy medicine reducing folk's symptoms + with regular use I see symptoms disappear completely . . . A less common way to work with dandy root medicine is to help release deeply rooted trauma that is showing up as intense anger. I've seen some amazing transitions happen with clients in this regard. I first discovered this as a homeless youth, being drawn to eat dandies I saw growing around me + noticing they were helping me release some of my rage. Anger is of course a healthy reaction, but it can start to harm us if stagnant. If this resonates with you, try some dandy roots + see how it feels 🌱✨

I’m sick for the second time this month. Being busy and feeling there isn’t enough time for it all has me stressed and has weakened my immune system. So I bought myself some thyme (ha!). I’m drinking strong thyme tea and made myself some thyme honey. Did you know thyme is one of the broadest spectrum herbs for viruses and bacteria? #thymemagic #herbalwisdom #queerherbalism #hollyhockherbal.com

Grief work can be overwhelming, painful, messy, terrifying, and exhausting...and I believe it can also open us to some of the most powerful experiences of our humanity and connection with all of life. One of my favorite yiddish proverbs translates to, “only that which is broken-hearted is whole.” Please join me this Saturday to go into herbal support for our heart, digestion, lungs, spirit, and nervous system as we navigate our many distinct experiences of loss.

Let’s talk GENDER ✨ One of my hobbies is looking at other herbalists/practitioners intake forms. I’ve seen this on forms for gender: Male, Female, Other. This is problematic. Male and female are not the only genders, and having “other” is straight up othering. It already can be unsafe for trans, gender non conforming, and genders other than cis to go to western doctors. I am putting a call out to all practitioners to learn more about gender and how you can be more inclusive. A better way to ask is...”What is your gender? What are your pronouns?” - Let people decide what their gender is, rather than just assuming they fit into the binary. There are billions of ways to express gender. Let’s embrace the complexity that gender is. #gender #herbalist #herbalism #queer #queerherbalism #rootedinspirit #inclusive #herbalqueers

When you see that another Big White Herbal Conference has yt ladies slated to teach on issues of colonization, cultural appropriation, and diversity. Black and Brown women tirelessly speak out on these topics -- pulling from our own lived experiences -- while yts can only regurgitate what they learned at our expense. For us, speaking our realities is often career-compromising (and sometimes life-threatening), but yts are rewarded for doing nothing but lip-service. Stop capitalizing off Black and Brown oppression by turning your "allyship" into a brand. Instead of accepting positions to speak for us, give US those platforms. Stop forming yt led Social Justice™ organizations, then inviting us on later as tokens. Stop centering yourself and your white savior narratives in movements by and about us. If you were truly invested in decolonization, if you genuinely wanted to see a more diverse herbal community, you would $upport poc reclaiming cultural knowledge suppressed by white supremacy, you would acknowledge what your people have stolen, you would stop trying to lead movements you don't understand. #herbalismsowhite #whitepeoplingwhitepeopling #fakeallies #allyship #performativeallyship #whitesaviorcomplex #colonization #decolonization #diversity #inclusion #culturalappropriation #whitesupremacy #racism

Plant Crush Day 2: Ashwagandha. Harvesting these sweet roots today to make a remedy for exhaustion. Thinking of all the organizers I know who are feeling burnt out these days, of all the students in finals season, of all the teachers who can’t wait for Spring break. I’m grateful to this plant for all the ways this medicine supports people who are overworked and feeling depleted. Native to South Asia, Ashwagandha grows well in Oakland too. Visit the fabulous @spiralgardensofficial plant nursery to meet this plant in person and maybe bring home a plant baby of your own to grow, as a sweet way to learn more about Ashwagandha! * * * * #PlantCrush #herbalism #queerherbalism

🌿GROWTH🌿 Found baby Motherwort growing amongst a deer's skeleton on this full moon morn. I'm grateful for the reminder that life can prevail even where there is death; That new growth can sprout from + be nourished by the deep process of transformation. . . . 🌿Motherwort is always one of the first plants to return after the long winter + can often be found bursting forth through snow. In early spring when the temperature is still below freezing, I find deer tracks in the snow that lead to well nibbled Motherwort patches. The deer in this picture would have found nourishment in early springtimes by eating the tender young Motherwort leaves, while most other plants were still asleep underground. Motherwort is very bitter which means the deer would only eat small amounts as sustenance, when other plants were scarce. Motherwort would provide the deer with not only nourishment but also the digestive stimulating + cleansing qualities that bitter plants offer. . . . 🌿It's been long known by traditional peoples around the world that animals seek out + ingest plant medicines. In modern science, this is well documented + known as zoopharmacognosy. Many cultures carry the knowledge that we originally learned about plant medicines from observing + being in communication with our animal relatives. There's many traditional Éireannach//Irish stories of our ancestors being brought into the realms of different animals + receiving teachings from them around how to locate, harvest, prepare + utilize plant medicines. Some of my favourite of these stories are about the Fia Rua, or Red Deer, who are said to be wise + kind teachers. . . . 🌿So I'm sitting with this baby Motherwort that is growing from the crumbling bones of a deer, being reminded of the power of transformation. Being reminded that although we are living through times of such extreme chaos + death, there is still life + vibrancy that is fiercely sprouting forth. Around us + within us. . . . ✨May this full moon assist in releasing that which is ready to pass. May this full moon illuminate that which is tenderly sprouting within us✨ . . . . #plantsareteachers #fullmoonmedicine #motherwort #queerherbalism

What a glorious day for gardening in Oakland today. Everything is so energized, the soil is all “Oh hi, waking up here! Come to meh! Lez work together!” One of my beds is currently a thick carpet of big-leaf Italian dandelion greens, fennel, collards, and nasturtium clearly there to capture inner water gems. #yayspring #springgarden #herbalism #queerherbalism #plantmagic

SCREAMING WITH JOY 🎉 Happy spring! Blessed Ostara! Welcome Aries season! (also screaming with PMS but hey what's new?!) 🌋 . . . It's spring + the official start of the growing season! As ya probably know by now, my entire life + livelihood revolves around tending plants. I was lucky to grow up in gardens + have been building deep relationships with plants my entire life. I consider them to be generous, wise + helpful friends. Every year when spring comes, I know my plant friends will return from their deep winter sleep. It's a truly emotional time for me, akin to a crew of long lost pals returning after being away for half a year 😂🌿 . . . As a full time grower + herbalist, I make all of my medicines from fresh living plants that I raise up myself. From carefully assisting seeds to sprout in the early spring, all the way to collecting their mature seeds come end of falltime, I'm working with the plants in some way everyday. It's very hard work, to be honest. It's thoroughly exhausting at times, but the rewards are so worth it. The potency of medicine that can be created from fresh plants is unparalleled; I hear this feedback time + time again from my clients. It's truly a gift to be able to support so many badass folks by working with plants. 🌹✨ . . . So happy spring yall! As my amazing pal Brescia of @drawing.with.knives.shadows once said in a song she wrote: "flowers can be good compensation for the turbulence of spring". May we remember that we can look to the plants for support when the inevitable turbulence comes our way. ⚡️🌷💕 . . . . . #communityherbalism #queerherbalism #plantwitch #queerfarmers #traditionalmedicine #queermedicine

My favorite way to spend a Saturday! Prepping new homes/garden beds for baby plants to grow... Garden Tip: if you’re new to gardening, Fennel, the tall cutie on the left in this photo, is super easy to grow from seed, is drought tolerant, hardy, and grows well in containers or anywhere else! The leaves and seeds are good for improving digestion, especially if you are someone who gets bloated after meals. Fennel is also one of the pollinator favorite plants when in bloom, and especially attracts Swallowtail butterflies. One of my favorites to grow in any garden. Helping people start new gardens makes me so happy! 🌿💚🌿💚🌿💚🌿💚🌿💚🌿💚 #containergarden #growyourownmedicine #patiogarden #urbanfarmer #queerherbalism

Any amount over what is needed for the scholarships will be donated to @sogoreatelandtrust in acknowledgement of the Ohlone people and their homeland, where these classes are being hosted.

Harvesting Chickweed with one of my favorite pups! Today I’m teaching about preparing medicinal topical remedies for our clinic at @ancestralapothecary this Fall, and I’m so happy to bring this home-grown medicine to class. Chickweed is one of my favorite herbs for cooling dry, itchy skin. Great for bug bites & rashes, this one grows all over Totoro’s garden as a “weed”, or volunteer. A lovely edible Springtime plant that comes up with the rains! ☔️ #chickweed #growyourownmedicine #queerherbalism

You can take one class or the entire series! To register, please call 510.444.9355 or visit the shop in person to get tickets. —- Heartbreak and Grief are some of our most powerful teachers. Loss takes many forms – or perhaps there are many shapes of absence. The plants you’ll meet in this class are helpful for the loss of a living person, a relationship, a piece of oneself, or a period of time. We all cope with painful learning in different ways, so we’ll discuss several kinds of responses that can come up with these experiences as well as techniques to help ourselves and each other survive them. Students will collaboratively craft and go home with herbal bath salt blends (and foot bath instructions if you don’t have a tub!) along with an internal support potion for yourself or someone you know who is struggling with loss. 🕳💔🌿

🌸Surgery support series🌸 My dear @alizalive is healing up so well! They've been working with herbs daily & the results are remarkable. Generally, bandages stay on for the first cpl weeks post surgery so we're utilizing herbs internally to help heal externally. Here's what we've been focusing on! . . 🌿Easing stress & anxiety 🌿Supporting tissue healing 🌿Supporting detox of meds . . 🌿Most folks will be taking antibiotics & pharma pain meds right after surgery so it's important to choose stress & anxiety easing herbs that won't interact. It's crucial to check with a knowledgeable person abt herb-med interactions, but here's a few anxiety soothing herbs that are usually safe to work with: Milky oats, chamomile, lemonbalm & hawthorn . . 🌿After surgery bodies focus on repairing wounds & herbs can greatly help support. Since bandages are covering wounds for the first cpl weeks, we work with herbs internally to facilitate tissue healing. This is where Vulnerary herbs are super helpful bcuz they help bodies heal & repair damaged tissues, often reducing excess inflammation too. Vulnerary herbs are gentle yet powerful & often have little interaction with pain meds & antibiotics. For tissue healing, Aliza & I have been focusing on: Gotu kola, Calendula & Plantain teas, as well as lots of ground flax seed with meals . . 🌿Heavy duty pain meds & antibiotics are given at the time of surgery & are always part of allopathic post surgery protocol. This can put stress on the liver & kidneys & can damage gut flora. Milk thistle seed can safely be taken alongside meds to protect the liver & help repair damage. Dandelion & burdock root teas support the body's detoxification process & moderate doses are safe to take alongside meds. Eating ferments everyday will strongly protect gut flora while taking antibiotics . . 🌿Working with therapies listed in my last 2 posts will be super helpful after surgery too! Check past posts for more info abt the herbs mentioned here . . ✨I'm creating an in-depth workshop for folks who wanna learn abt specifics that can't fit into these tiny insta posts 😘 . . #queerherbalism #communityherbalism #queercare #surgerysupportseries #queerhealing

Whenever I visit the west coast, I try to bring back some rosemary because it’s one of my faves, grows in abundance out there, and is a powerhouse healer 💚 Rosemary provides relief from stress, headaches, inflammation, improves circulation and memory, is amazing for hair, protection spells, and that’s just skimming the surface!
