The book I'm holding, Botanical Medicine for Women's Health, is THE textbook for anyone who's interested in learning about herbs for women. 🌸🍃 It was the starting point for my research paper and Balanced Cycles online course, and is what I turn to whenever I'm coaching someone through anything related to the reproductive system. I can't recommend it enough! Aviva Romm, the author, is ✨ / photo by @meganleighbarnard
My garden is awash with sunny, uplifting lemon balm. I picked a bunch this morning and am making a sun tea with a big handful. The jar is out on the patio warming up in the sun for a lunchtime treat.
Is it possible that the hormone shift after pregnancy makes bug bites seem itchier? Gah! Using this stuff nonstop.

So many weddings! I've been packaging self care gifts for bridesmaids and brides this week and have two weddings this weekend. Last night the bride sent everyone home with succulents... and I may have asked a few people who were flying back home what their plans for the plants were😬

I'm in the middle of teaching an intro to herbalism class all day today! ☕️ The tasting of teas is one of my favorite things to do with a group. It's so much easier to remember how to use an herb when you're tasting and smelling while learning.
One of my favorites. Rose is a heart-opening nervines, helpful when recovering from heartbreak. 💔 It also contains gerianol, an antiseptic oil. There are a number of other therapeutic uses for rose and @lauriegrangerayurvedawellness discusses a few others in her feed. Join the two of us later this month for a seasonal workshop where we'll discuss herbal and ayurvedic ways to promote health this summer🌿
