Your body will have a lot to say to you if you listen. It's important to remember that you are a unique individual and you need to be aware of who you really are, what makes you tick, how you react to scents, foods, liquids and everything around you including any herbs which you might ingest. Also, don't forget to take into consideration any meds you might be on. Herbs can sometimes strengthen or weaken the effect of other drugs that you are taking. Try taking a pen and pad and writing down what you know about yourself. Yes, I said that!! Introduce yourself to you. You have so much to offer. Who knows you better than you? Make some introductions and pay attention!!
Today I'm still staying down. It's cold and sunny outside and the weather is definitely calling me outdoors but I'm determined to get well first. I need to get out and dig more echinacea and some sassafras but I'm going to try not to get sick again. Being sick is no fun, huh?! I've still got some echinacea in my herb kitchen - I just don't want to deplete my stores. I'm also chomping at the bit to make some more Elderberry Syrup and some Cold and Flu Syrup. There are numerous teas and other blends I need to make too but for now I'm holding my horses.
Speaking of horses. They are certainly enjoying the sun today!!
