Not wanting to be huddled indoors with this dreary cold spell, I bundled and braced myself up for a woodland walk in a new neck of the woods around East Woodlands. Wow, the cacophony of birdsong filled my senses and the beauty of Celendines, Violets and Bluebells all around, not to mention the carpet of Ramsons (wild garlic).
As well as being a Herbalist, I am also a Flower Essence Practitioner and it’s lovely to share in knowledge of these beauties with you as essences work on a more subtle level.
Celendine: Shines light into the Dark Night of the Soul.
Violet: Helps to remove damage to the aura and gives psychic protection.
Bluebell: Helps one to speak their truth clearly and can be used as a tincture for spiritual rebirth. (Do not eat any part of this flower. Essences are made by ‘pulling’ out a plant’s energy into water.)

Rosehip seed oil is perhaps the mother of all oils and is believed to be a ‘super oil’ when it comes to anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation. It is jammed packed with so many natural goodies that help with:
UV damage from overexposure to the sun
Scars from surgery, burns, and acne
Wrinkles and premature skin ageing
Burns, including those from radiation and sunburns
Dry and damaged hair
Excellent for dry, scaly fissured skin, dull skin
My family and I spent this morning throwing snowballs at each other and what better way to warm up after than take a dip in a Body Butter bath. Scoop a little Shea and Cocoa out of the jar and pop it in the tub, keeping your skin re-hydrated, protected and super soft.
