Herbal Musings

I learned about Solomon's Seal as one of my first herbs through my teacher,Matt Wood an eclectic herbalist and general genius on Western herbalism.  I knew this plant closely as a gardener, it’s interwoven notched rhizomes twisted around each other creating knots and a puzzle work that speaks to it’s doctrine of signatures of helping ease the pain of tightness and constriction.

This is hands down my favorite musculoskeletal herbs for supporting and strengthen the entire system by soothing inflamed tissues, moistening the respiratory tract, nourishing during menopause and for my creaky back, it promotes flexibility and I LOVE it for repetitive motion injuries (ex: tendentious) as an oil and tincture.  We have Solomon's Seal in our aptly namedJoint Juice.

Our little adventure on early spring weeds.

Has it ever occurred to you that maybe the reason why certain "weeds" grow abundantly is because we can benefit greatly from using them just as abundantly as they grow? Plantain is one of these abundantly available and abundantly useful herbs!

This recipe came from a good friend, who piles up crepes almost every Sunday for her kiddos and mine when he is there to gobble up. The full spread includes yogurt, various cream cheeses, fresh fruit, and jams. My heart is always simple with this one: "Lemon with powdered sugar, and put my berries on the side, please!"
