Good News to Share

I am so excited to share that two of my articles were published in the March-April 2024 issue of The Essential Herbal! This is so meaningful to me and I wanted to share. If you have little bitty hamsters or gerbils, I wrote about foraging herbs that are safe for them. I also wrote a Spring Revival Herbal Tisane recipe that I think you will enjoy.

The Essential Herbal Magazine used to be in print (I have saved all of my issues) and as a digital magazine, it still retains that luscious, inviting feel in its pages. I still can’t believe something I wrote is in there. It’s so validating.

Here is a direct link to the website. In every issue, you feel as if herbalism is just a part of living your best life, as it should be.

On another note, I am recovering from this silly cold. My herbals kept me from getting as sick as the rest of the family (who refuse to use mom’s protocol anymore) and as I don’t get sick very often, I was keen to keep notes on what I did and how it affected me. Sort of an illness experiment? It sounds odd to write it down, but I have an ever growing notebook of how I use herbal remedies and how they worked.

One of my takeaways from this event is that I was able to try my Mullein glycerite. I feel that it may be a little more palatable for people sensitive to earthy flavors, as so many of us are, but I also think it was more effective than my tincture! It’s going to the top of the herbal cupboard for the next time. If you haven’t had the chance to try Mullein as a glycerite, you may want to consider it.

I used it at the stage in the cold where I felt my chest hurt, unproductive cough that was painful contributed to my head hurting. I used a dropperful, three times a day, and will continue until I no longer have a coughing spell. Are you interested in what I used throughout this illness and why? Let me know and I would be happy to share!

So, my writing hasn’t been as “crisp”, as they say… but I am still pushing myself to update the blog every day, despite whatever real life throws at me. Thanks for following along. ~Amy
