Chickweed: A wild spring super *STAR*…

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

Yoga: Stretching Beyond Your Comfort Zone

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

Pine Needle Tea

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

Ode To Vincent

Let love awaken you

Moving and swaying
In rhythm

Garnet red and violet purple
In a palace of air
Among trees. Read more

Wild For You Tea – In the media!

Hello All,

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.
