This little green super star is definitely one of my favourites to forage every spring. Not just because it is so soft to the touch and kind of makes me feel very faerie picking it, but also because it was one of my first ‘miracle’ cures, when I first started my journey with wild plants. Read more
As long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a dancer. Whenever I would see someone dancing, whether it was on film or in “real” life, I would cry. I still do. It invokes something so nostalgic and spiritual that when I watch, even for a moment, I become that dance. I quite literally feel as though, I disappear into it. Read more
The sun has been out and about the past couple days and let me tell you, when this happens in England (come spring), I throw on my boots and literally speed walk to my favourite forest. Granted I was still walking in some pretty thick mud, but the sun was shining, so who cares?!! Read more

Spring is here and these beautiful little rays of sunshine are in full bloom everywhere at the moment, so I’ve decided to pluck a few from my garden and preserve their nutritious loveliness! Read more

I hope this finds you healthy and happy! As you can gather, now that the autumn months are upon us, my productivity with respect to foraging has been sadly diminished. I am reduced to the last of Mother Earth’s final offerings, namely rosehips, hawthorn berries, dandelion roots and the last of my home grown marigolds.
Not to worry though, this just means more sleep and fewer cuts and scratches from the fields and forests. I will however, be posting a blurb about the benefits, etc. of rosehips, hawthorn berries, dandelion roots, and marigolds in the near future.
I’m also very excited to share this lovely review of my teas by lifestyle editor Bryony Bowie of the London based publication ‘The Orbital’.
I love nothing more than throwing on a woolly sweater, taking a long crisp walk on the English countryside, breathing in the cool autumn air, and clipping the last of nature’s wild edibles before winter sets in.
Over the past couple of weeks I have been preparing my body for the coming months and would like to share one of my favourite (seasonal) blood cleansing juice recipes. Not only will you feel amazing after drinking this delicious drink, your skin will be thanking you too!
