For this edition of Weed Love, I’m looking a bit outside our own property for inspiration- but what inspiration I found in our area as Spring finally arrives!
These beautiful flowers are Red Root, also known as California Lilac, or botanically, Ceanothus. They come in many forms, from ground-hugging shrubs to graceful small trees, and for [...]

Weed Love : Calendula

As always, this edition of weed love was inspired by the plant itself- specifically, a lovely, fiery orange bright spot in my otherwise sleeping garden.
In my research about Calendula, I found that its name is taken from the word “calendar”, since the flowers bloom year-round in all months. So, perhaps the little bit of welcome [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Weed Love : Yarrow

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. Our cultivated flower garden is a more summer-season one, so there’s not much to look at right now, with the grand exception of the huge Rosemary that sits in the middle of our herb bed. It has been flowering [...]
