GRATEFUL for the bountiful harvest of herbs in the summer.
GRATEFUL for the time during the cold spell to turn herbs into medicine.
GRATEFUL for the knowledge to create medicines from the gifts of nature.
GRATEFUL for enjoying time with my grand daughter who helped in the creation of five different salves.
GRATEFUL for the opportunity to watch her learn valuable life skills through osmosis.

Green Blessings,

Rosehips High in Vitamin C

Rosehips are from the Wild Rose (Rosa canina). They are especially high in vitamin C but also contain vitamin A, B1 and B2 in the pulp. Vitamin C was first discovered in Rosehips. Long before the discovery of vitamin C Rosehip tea was used for the common cold and locally for inflamed and bleeding gums.

Most animals are able to manufacture their own vitamin C but because of a lack of a major enzyme in the human liver, the human body is unable to manufacture its own vitamin C. This is why we need to ensure adequate vitamin C intake through our diet or supplements. Rosehips also help to maintain healthy collagen, the substance that holds trillions of cells together in our body.


Following are two of my favourite ways of preparing Rosehip tea:

1. My preference is to make a cold infusion and let it sit over night or at least a few hours before straining it. Cold infusions have the advantage of preserving the mineral content provided by the herbs.

2. Make a cold infusion and then slowly bring the infusion with the rosehips to simmer to make a decoction.

For instructions of the different water extractions such as cold infusions and decoctions I suggest you refer to disc 1 of the DVD “Herbal Pharmacy for Everyone”.



HAPPY HALLOWEEN – Remembering Halloween or better said, “El Dia de los Muertos” (The Day of the Dead) a few years back in one of my favorite places, a small village in Mexico.

El Dia de los Muertos honors the deceased, a tradition that has developed out of a combination of indigenous and Catholic rituals.

Have fun with the kids, make it a special time but remember that sugar suppresses the immune system instantly which lasts for hours (depending on the amount consumed). Keeping our immune system at top functioning level is of utmost importance these days.
