Winter Therapy ❄️🌹🍃🙏💫

Today has been spent making herbal remedies for these cold Winter months. Iโ€™ve been to a great workshop, learning about oils, herbs, potions and lotions that can really make a difference to someone like myself, who suffers with low energy and colds during Winter.

I embrace every season, and try my best to flow with the gifts of nature, no matter the time of year. Winter, for me, is a time to retreat, go within, sit in the darkness, rest, heal and try and learn from the lessons that the season has to offer. Itโ€™s not always pleasant, though, and my immune system really takes a knock during this time, so self care is crucial.

The pictures show:

* Potion to boost mood and tantric energy with Damiana and Passion flower (mix with brandy to really bring out those herbal properties!)

Great in a cocktail or hot drink, to warm you up! 🔥

* Potion of Rose and Vodka to lift the spirits, boost loving energy and seretonin levels 😍

*Rosehip Syrup to help the immune system and soothe those coughs and colds.

*Body Rub made with natural beeswax, thyme, eucalyptus and peppermint, to help calm your mood, clear chests and fight off colds.

*Handmade Christmas Wreath (made by myself!), made with willow, moss, pine, eucalyptus, rosemary, holly, cinnamon sticks and clear quartz.

Looking forward to hanging this baby on my front door! 🙌 🙏😍

Thank you to Etta’s Botanica for running such a wonderful workshop! Etta has taught me a lot over the years – much of which gets stronger and better with integration and time, which I feel is a sign of a true guide and teacher. 🙏🔥💫🔮
