COMMUNITY SUPPORTED HERBALISM
Monthly baskets prepared by Amber Friedman
Basket time is here again!
Welcome to the middle of spring basket.
Here you will find some products I made with local herbs I wild crafted.
Nettle Leaf Hair Rinse is a mixture of Apple Cider Vinager infused with Stinging Nettles from this year on Texada, BC. Use it in the shower to bring more life to your hair. Do not use it on children and when you pour it on your hair, try to keep it out of your eyes. Notice your hair jump back to life.
Spring is about Life Force and this month we also have a Bitters that I made with dandelion leaves, cacao beans + yellow dock. Enjoy this by itself before or after meals to aid with digestion, or try some in a with fizzy liquids. I would store this in the fridge and use within 6 months.
Thyme + Ginger is a warming pain reliever that I made with solar infused olive oil and fresh thyme + ginger root. Ginger is an anti-inflammatory herb and thyme can help things move by warming them up. Try this salve on your over worked muscles or before you take a bath.
Energizing Spring Tonic Tea is a blend of herbs that grow in our region and have lots of benefits to our system. It is cleansing while restoring those burned out parts of your body.
Last but not least one of my favorite soaps! This Anti-Fungal Tree Soap is a combination of Canadian extracted essential oils from black spruce + balsam fir. It is toped with douglas fir needles. This would be a great soap to use on your feet to help your feet prepare for the summer season.
Hope you enjoy! Next month will be the last basket of the season. Featuring ROSES! Wonderful local medicine. IF you are interested in registering for the Fall Community supported Herbalism Basket Program please get in touch with me to hold your spot!
