As many of you know, Paul’s original profession was as a goldsmith and jeweler, and he still creates beautiful work in his studio, finding that it connects very well philosophically to his work in the lab.
Over the years, I have made jewelry as well, first helping Paul with his work, and then learning to create [...]

As I get older and my hormonal balance shifts, I’ve been looking for supportive herbs and Spagyrics to make the transition as gracefully as possible. I eat well, exercise and do yoga, and live a relatively stress-free life, so I’m in a good position to help my body find its own balance with just a [...]

Our smoky late summer came to a halt with the coming of the rains, and hopefully with them, some relief from the fires once again plaguing the West. Between the weeks of smoke and the changing of the season, our respiratory systems are a bit off. Plus, we’re thinking about heading into and through the [...]

For a recent custom formula Paul is working on for a friend, we wanted a new Spagyric that would bring in a high, sacred energy relating to the Sun and its golden light of clarity. This formula will also contain some Oil of Gold, and so we thought of our much-beloved Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh [...]

There are many reasons to love Yarrow- its beauty, its tough and easy-to-grow nature, the beneficial insects it attracts, and its medicinal properties and healing versatility. My love for Yarrow is simpler and more sentimental- to me, it is the herb of camping, and the clean smell of its leaves brings me back to many [...]

The fields around our house are full of spring flowers- fruit trees, daffodils, dandelions, and more.

Here in the Northwest, our local forests have many evergreens, which are beautifully green year-round, along with an abundance of Alders. Alder trees are deciduous, green in the summer and leafless in the winter, without much autumn show in between. As they lose their leaves this time of year, though, I can see that they [...]
