(and adrenals, ha). also, pictured here is jojoba glow face oil which i’ve been using from @ogee (excited to try their other products - see my stories!) which has been so hydrating for my dry, winter skin. ❄️💦 and how cute is this pillow case from @dreamy_moons that came in this months box from @goddessprovisions ⁉️😍 . . . . #wearerasa #rasakoffee #adaptogens #herbalelixir #myherbalstudies #dreamymoons #goddessprovisions #moodbeli #herbalallies #coffeereplacement #gloworganic #glow #selfcare

            It’s Leo SZN baby! 🦁 •
•
What better aid for this solar powered sign than a solar powered herbal oil?! •
•
🌞SURYA OIL 🌞 (oil of the SUN) is organic sunflower oil infused with St. John’s Wort... coloring the oil blood red, the flowers the color of the solar plexus chakra, the heat of the abdomen, the fire that sparks the livelihood of us all. Paired with full spectrum hemp oil from organic, sun grown hemp... our systems are super charged 💥
•
•
An effective herbal ally for toning our nervous system & in my experience, facilitates healing in high criticism of self and of others and in fear of creative self expression, which undoubtedly is the most POTENT medicine of all (hear that, those with Chiron in Leo?! No ego-wounded healers here!!) Used topically, Surya oil will help with eczema & psoriasis and will seep into deep tissues (kapha issues) alleviating stagnation and pain.
•
•
Whether you have Leo in your chart or not, it’s time to honor the lions roar within us all, and I firmly believe that Surya Oil is a great tool to have with you in this time of year ⚡️

            Mugwort has been a go-to green muse since her discovery in my life. I love burning mugwort, I love drinking mugwort, I love sleeping with mugwort near the cerebral circuit creating lucid dreams in my head.
....
Mugwort has tenacity in the garden and outside, abundant and prolific if not tended too, showing up in many ways, simply asking to be utilized. Even in the act of weeding, mugwort is like a guardian angel, showing up to promote connection and groundedness to the earth.
....
I feel mugwort energy as warm and stimulating - calming the nerves and energizing the sacral chakra. Her wisdom shows in sobering strength, bringing desirable clarity to a hazy mind, almost instantaneously. Her moonlight pungency aids in dreamwork, as we rest and download the complex visions that stream in from the ethers with simplicity and presence. .
.....
Dry her leaves in bundles to burn negativity away, take them fresh in tea to promote proactive actions, toss a few in your pillowcase to tap deeper into subconscious.
....
PS - I return to @herbstalk this weekend, the first place I learned about mugwort five years ago, to teach a class called “DAILY DOSHIC CARE & HOME HERBALISM” on Sunday June 2 around noon. I hope to see you there 🙏🏽

wowowow... there’s way more St. John’s Wort sharing the sweet homeland with me this year! Certainly one of the best “welcome home - it’s summer” gifts that I ever could have asked for is this wild friend seeding and blooming here - a great invitation to hang out and root down and open up myself! . . St. John’s Wort is an herb that is well known for its benefits in lightening depression because it increases levels of dopamine and serotonin in the brain 💛 However it’s more than just an awesome mind + nervous system friend. These bright yellow flowers also have great benefit in treating skin issues like eczema and healing any wounds or cuts as St. John’s is antimicrobial. Additionally, these flowers can help alleviate pain - aching muscles or joints and a gentle aid for PMS cramping and moving stagnation. This herbaceous homie is thought to alleviate those with much Pitta or Kapha energy. Find St. John’s in the ✨SURYA Oil and Salve✨ . . Yarrow is another beautiful ally I will share about - she is found in the Sacred Venus Oil & Salve, and I will have more of that ready soon... . . #stjohnswort #hypericin #Medicina #wildflowers #wildmedicine #wildfriends #herbalallies #plantremedies #gooutsideandplay #summersolstice #surya #pitta #kapha #yarrow #serotonin #dopaminergic #avraveda

            Herb Facts 🎉

Mullein is a hugely medicinal herb that can be drank as tea or smoked. 
By turning it into an infusion through steeping it in hot water for 4 hours, straining the mixture through cheesecloth, then drinking it, you’ll get one of the best medicines available for people with respiratory problems. It helps with asthma, cough, sore throats, ear infections, and other respiratory issues. 
Mullein is one of the only herbs in folk medicine that is believed to repair your lung while smoking it. Mullein can be smoked alone, with other supporting herbs for a calming effect, with tobacco to taper off your tobacco use, or with cannabis for a unique experience. It is known for helping clear out the lungs and repair damage which is why using it when you are quitting tobacco, and using it when smoking any other herb including cannabis, is very essential. 
Harvesting it sometimes causes the skin to become itchy if you are especially sensitive but otherwise mullein has no known side effects.

“to be native to a place we must learn to speak its language” . does it need to be said? so many herbaceous babes in california... starting with the poppies that are poppppin’. wild rosemary and fennel, thistles and eucalyptus (not photo’d here... many invasive with strict laws but the plants have certainly established their homes) . edible and medicinal flowers with native california usages that i would 10/10 live in if I were a tiny fairy. blueblossom, periwinkles and irises... plus an honorable mention to the yarrow and forget-me-nots and geranium sweetening the atmosphere. . a magical place that is filled with a different type of light. I understand the sungrown cannabis from here so much more... . back in the northeast, headed home to the southcoast farmcoast and feeling motivated by the colors I’ve seen so far this spring. there are many languages I’d like to learn, but becoming fluent at home helps better understand the rest of the world. . . #locals #plantguides #easttowest #CaliforniaPoppies #rosemary #herbalallies #coasttocoast #southcoastma #avraveda

            Did you know from just the taste of an herb, you can often gauge the way it affects your bodily tissues? 👅🌿
.
The POST-DIGESTIVE effect of the herb (called vipaka in Sanskrit) is important  because it reflects the LONG-TERM effect of the herb on the body, after initial effects.
.
And it begins with it’s taste. Its simple.
.
If an herb has a sweet or salty taste, it likely has a sweet, or NOURISHING/BUILDING long term effect on the tissues.
.
If an herb (or food) has a sour taste, it likely has a sour, or HEATING, long term effect on the tissues.
.
If an herb has a bitter, astringent or pungent taste, it likely has a pungent, or DRYING, long term effect on the tissues.
.
If using herbs for prolonged periods of time or in strong doses, it’s important to consider an herb’s vipak. With this information, you can pair herbs properly, to make sure they don’t accidentally overheat you, dry you out or over saturate you.
.
I’ll be sharing more about the tastes and post digestive effects of many New England native herbs (like this soft velvet mullein!) in the near future.
.
In the meantime, make sure to get a TONGUE SCRAPER so your taste buds are sharp and ready to figure things out on their own!!! 😝🌱✨

            As someone who has been graced with (it’s taken decades to be grateful for this) the challenges of depression, addiction, insomnia, food sensitivities, joint pain and grief I have always sought traditional, natural remedies. My Pitta/Vata constitution also creates both sensitivity and intensity which can lead to major burn out on many levels. Honoring my needs for self care and making them a priority has been the foundation for recovery from surgeries last year. It’s not something I share too much about as I’m a pretty private person. But recently I’ve had some experiences with gluten/grain sensitivity and mental health that have reminded me how deeply intertwined food and mood are. And there are so so many people out there that are struggling and lost. You may try one thing and not have much change but as whole beings we must take a whole being approach to health. 
I’ve seen incredible improvement personally and with clients by incorporating these Mental Health Rituals on the daily. And for me that also means a traditional ancestral diet  most of the time. 
It’s true when you are going through hell to keep going but sometimes a change in diet, routine and direction is the key finding peace within ✌🏽 If you’ve struggled with mental health, like most modern humans, I’d love to hear what’s been most effective for you? ☀️

Body and Age Positive

Two of my favorite things: lavender and introspection. I love her caption. Reposted from @ingarbelight A friend asked me if I found what I was looking for in Provence. I was hoping to find some answers in the lavender fields. Something new perhaps; alongside some inspiration I just couldn’t refuse. Instead, I found something old that unearthed tattered memories, expectations not met, and a feeling of lightness fragmented by thoughts from another lifetime, in this one and, perhaps, several before. Instead I found what plant medicine + flower archetypes do. They reveal deeper layers of their kingdom and wisdom in unexpected moments of your personal timeline, sometimes touching your past, then present and future.

Sεnsε Cαrε ✨ . «Vision is food for the eyes. Sound is food for the ears. Touch is food for the skin. Taste is food for the tongue» Dr. Vasant Lad. . We’ve all heard “you are what you eat” - but have you considered that includes what you ingest through *all* your senses, not only your mouth? The sensory input that you take in everyday is what connects the external world with your internal one, and leaves imprints on your physical and subtle bodies, ultimately affecting who you are in the world, how you operate, and who you become. . This is such a sweet realization, literally everything is food... engage with your senses! Next time you find yourself gazing at a piece of art or watching the news; listening to chill downtempo music or exchanging heated words with a “toxic person”; massaging oil onto a friends shoulders or mindlessly picking at your skin; taking tincture under your tongue or making food choices simply out of convenience... ask yourself... how is this “food” feeding me? . Is it nurturing your mind body + soul or is it total junk?! Feed yourself right ✌🏾 . . . #sensecare #selfcare #ayurveda #herbalmedicine #herbalallies #organicskincare #healingjourney #naturalremedies #cannabidiol #treatyourselfright #feedyourselfright #avraveda

            Calendula: 
If you apply calendula oil or salve to cuts, scrapes, bruises, and insect bites, you can quickly speed the healing process--This occurs due to the glycosides, saponins, and other powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds.  This along with antibacterial properties help fight off infections so wounds heal more rapidly.  Calendula also boosts the appearance of the skin by affecting the blood flow to skin cells, providing antioxidant protection that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and age spots, and even the visibility of scars.  The powerful anti-inflammatories in calendula also helps gout, arthritis, and other joint-based pains.

V I O L E T S . . A way I connect to our cyclical nature is to work with plants seasonally. As spring is slowly starting to burst through the sweet smell of these tiny flowers is giving me life. Working with violets in particular helped me really connect with myself. ( I have a violet flower essence post a few back of you want to read about it. ) . . Each time violets take flight - I am consistently reminded about how far I have come with my personal deep healing. I have the honour and blessing of working with violets again this year. The sweet heavenly smell is indescribable. . . . Violet blossoms are edible. The leaves make wonderful tea . . Enjoy blossoms and leaves in salads, pesto and wraps. . . Violet leaves contain a fair amount of mucilage or soluble fibre. Leaves are also high in cut A, C and rutin. . . Violet is cooling and moistening and can be used internally as a blood cleanser and lymphatic stimulant. . . Thanks to the high mucilage quality it is great for dry coughs. Excellent with marshmallow & licorice roots. . . Violet can be used topically as a poultice, compress, infused oil and slave. Works well as a remedy for dry or chaffed skin. As well as for varicose veins and hemorrhoids. It is cooling, soothing and anti- inflammatory. . . Violets are part of my moon salve as well as breast oil formulas. Flower essence is also in stock now . link in bio. . . . . . . . . . . . . #herbalism #herbalist #herbal #ayurveda #wild #foodismedicine #foraging #wild-harvest #violets #bhakti #ahimsa #yoga #seasonal #love #lovejustlove #chakras #gratitude #herbalallies #spiritplants #shakti #spring #gardener #earthsteward

            Burdock AKA Artcium Lappa FOR WEIGHTLOSS.  Used in folk medicine and as a vegetable in Asian countries, constituents of the root significantly reduced body weight (in rats) and lowered blood lipid levels. It seems the root may modulate genetic expression, possibly because of its positive impact on the microbiome. Study: Effects of aqueous extract of Arctium lappa L. roots on serum lipid metabolism.

            Elder - Sambucus nigra L.  Leaf can be harvested at any time during the growth cycle and used fresh, flowers harvest in early flowering stage and used fresh or dry, berries harvested at the peak of ripeness.  Elderflowers make a cooling infusion for cold symptoms, flu-like colds, and mild feverish states by easing symptoms as well as countering infection. Ripe elderberries contain high levels of vitamin C, and contain strong antioxidants. Elderberry syrup and extract are used to counter infections and speed recovery. Clinical trials have shown that those who used elderberry extract shorten recovery time from influenza, elderberry extracts are even being sold in CVS (though I bet my Elderberry Syrup is a million times better!). Elderflower can dry and tone mucous membranes lining the nose and throat, reducing sneezing, itchiness, and runny nose in conditions such as rhinitis and hay fever. Elderflower is also used in chronic catarrhal problems affecting the sinuses and middle ear. In combination with other remedies, the flowers can also be useful in treating chest infections such as bronchitis and pleurisy.
