Somewhere I read a quote by Rosemary Gladstar that while every herbalist has a mortar and pestle for decoration nobody really uses it now that we have food processors. But to be honest, I love using mine...

Just sent out this month's newsletter with a $10 discount code and the new workshops I'm teaching in Cleveland and Columbus. (One is going to be about allergies... I've been getting so many questions on that topic lately)
Also, there's only 1 spot left for Intro to Herbal Tea on April 27 if you've been eyeing it.

Maxwell sees us use bitters at every meal (to support digestion) so of course he thinks they're a very special treat that he must have. I didn't expect him to love them so much because (duh) they're so bitter but he always always wants some.
Bitters are so easy to make and are an effective way to help all kinds of digestive problems. And (this is star kind of thing that people who are “skeptical” of herbalism hate) bitters also can support so many other things other than digestion too: hormonal imbalances, allergies of all kinds, a weakened immune system... It's because that bitter flavor stimulates the liver and the liver does so many things for the body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Think about birth control patches and nicotine patches.... we don’t question that those work. We accept that they release chemicals that make it into the bloodstream. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is how the herbal infused oils work as well-- the chemical components that were extracted from the herbs into the oil are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream. In using an herbal oil you get the benefits of the herb even though you aren't consuming it. You also get the lymphatic, immune, and nervous system benefits of massaging your skin too.

If you're interested in learning about how most of the bottles in your spice rack and many of the plants in your garden (including the weeds!) can support your health come to the Intro To Herbal Tea workshop on April 27. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We'll taste and talk about a selection of familiar plants and learn how to use them medicinally. We'll also talk about the difference between making (or buying) a tea for flavor vs a truly potent cup of herbal tea. Everyone will make an herbal tea blend to take home.
Right now there are only 4 spots left for this popular $25 workshop.

This rose vinegar ended up very very very pink. I'll be using this both in my salad dressings and on sun burns this summer. 🥗 🌞

You know to use your body oil before or during a shower for super glow-y skin, right? Not after you've dried off?
It's because the water pressure and the pressure of hands moving across wet skin emulsifies the oil. You almost create a cream that plumps up the skin and seals in way more hydration than using the oil alone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's a super easy way to make yourself feel especially well taken care of. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Have you heard me rave about making loose leaf tea in a french press? No escaped floaty bits, super easy to clean, the steam won't escape, and you can make several cups at a time. 📸: @angelafortinstudio
I've been keeping a low profile for the last couple months, but I'm here... teaching, making products, and building a baby. As the first trimester winds up and the exhaustion and nausea wind down everything is starting to feel more manageable again, including engaging more here. I've missed it. ❤️
I asked and was thrilled that you so were crystal clear in your answer: keep the teas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love formulating and offering teas and smoke blends but haven't felt quite as sure about them since I've fallen head over heels for herbal oils. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After your strong reaction I'll be offering them for at least another year, worry not.

Wild Origins is three years old. I've been reflecting a lot on the changes since I left a FT job to teach my first workshop and release my first products in March of 2016. It was terrifying and utterly liberating to teach my first workshop after years of only dreaming about Wild Origins. And now I’m doing my dream work. .
To celebrate I'm sending the gift of a free body oil with every online order over $30 from now until the end of March. ❤️ Thank you for supporting me these past three years.
"I've been using the Dream Oil every evening and I don't wake up at 2 anymore."
"Somehow the Awakening Oil is all of my favorite scents all in one!"
Please keep the comments about all the new oils coming. Here's mine....I recently got a massage from a friend who used the Awakening Oil on my head and neck. As soon as she started with the oil I split into laughter, unable to stop. It was so strange, like a great block opened up within me and released pure joy.

Hi! I wanted to introduce myself to the new names I see following along. I'm Aniko, the herbalist behind Wild Origins.
In 2014 I moved back to Ohio from NYC for the chance to apprentice with a wickedly smart herbalist/ ethnobotanist/ farmer who studied under Rosemary Gladstar.
Now through Wild Origins I offer carefully formulated herbal products (oils, teas, smoke blends) meant for indulgent self care and I teach workshops to introduce people to the power and pleasure of plants. I'm forever obsessively studying and right now I'm most interested in learning how time in nature and away from modern society changes our brains and how plants can protect our skin from sun damage, revolutionize our digestion, support the female reproductive system, and can help us tap out of anxious and depressive states. Pop in the comments below and introduce yourself. <3 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
