I’m welcoming in Summer by hanging out and feeling groovy with St. John’s Wort. Hypericum Perforatum. Say that three times real fast..Groovy!) 🌼 This dainty yellow flowered medicinal grows wild around my home. It begins to bloom around the Summer Solstice, cheerfully ushering in a new season! 🌱 Like many herbalists I’ll be gathering St. John’s Wort to be infused fresh into oil where it will be transformed into a lovely red hued healing oil that is wonderful for soothing tired and achy muscles, for healing wounds, bruises, sprains and inflammation. 🌿 My favorite way to use St. John’s Wort oil is after a shower where I can take a few moments to give special attention to my shoulders, knees, hands and feet after a long day in the garden. 🌼 St. John’s Wort in tincture or tea form taken internally is an aid for nervous system issues as well as supporting liver health. Just a few of the many benefits of St. John’s Wort. ☀️ Want to dig deeper into St. John’s Wort? Follow herbalist @rosaleedelaforet for in depth research and study of medicinal plants. You’ll love her plant monographs. So perfect for budding and experienced herbalists alike. 🌞 Happy Summer Solstice and a blessed season of fun in the Sun! . . . #summersolstice #funinthesun #stjohnswort #plantallies #herbalhealth #plantmedicine #thepeoplesmedicine
Isn’t this perfect for National Pollinator week?! @thefarwoods created this lovely sticker available in their shop. Cloth screen printed patches and wall hangings too, all dedicated to bringing awareness to the humble servants of our ecosystem. Friends, this week take time to understand the importance of our pollinator friends and learn how we can help by taking the smallest steps to providing a healthier pesticide free environment for pollinators to thrive. One of those small steps could be learning if the plants you purchase are safe for pollinators by following @ncap_team and their website www.pesticide.org for a list of nurseries in Oregon and Washington that retail Neonic (neonicotinoid) Free plants. Ask your nursery to direct you to those plants if they have them and kindly ask them to offer them if they don’t. Happy Pollinator Week and long live the bees! . . . #nationalpollinatorweek #notoneonicotinoids #pesticidefree #thefarwoods #longlivethebees #buzzbuzz
Such a beautiful evening as we approach Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year in just four days! Watching the last rays of sunlight settle over the Coast range. I put out a jar of garden herbs a bit late today for sun tea. So a full moon tea it is! . . . #moontea #fullmoon #myoregon #pnw #herblove
Baby, baby, baby OH! A gallon of cottage garden sun tea. My IG stream is bursting with colorful vibrant sun tea pics as more of us are finding our bodies and thirsts quenched from plants fresh from our gardens, meadows, forests and wild places! And who wants to waste the sun’s lovely ancient energy on a few stale store bought tea bags?! Nada! This jug contains, lemon balm, plantain, borage leaves and blossoms, self heal and Calendula blossoms. Cheers to warm summer days ahead and plenty of nourishing sun tea! #teamaker #suntea #herbaltea #sunsout #plantallies #plantsthatheal
Taking in the last days of spring with this lovely wild rose and listening to the breeze in the forest. Nettles, Self Heal, Dandelion, Violet, Plantain.
