Vegan and organic body products!

Hai. So I just opened an etsy shop called beesimpleorganics that is slowly being stocked with tons of vegan and vegetarian skin, hair, and body care products. All of the ingredients are local, organic, and (mostly) grown or made by me from my farm. You should check it out! And keep an eye out for more and more listings. {:

For checking me out on tumblr, use code ORGANIC15 for 15% off!

I am covered in hives.

This shit is not okay.

I took an oatmeal bath an slathered myself in aloe and comfrey oil as well as a nice wipe down of comfrey and lavender salve.
AND I STILL FUCKING ITCH.

I am going to do nothing but drink chamomile tea tomorrow, I fucking swear.
I really don’t know where this shit came from. Any advice or methods to get rid of this shit?

is it absolute lunacy {lady bit things}

that I enjoy menstruating?

I really do. While I hate the general negatives (cramps etc.) I embrace them.

My body is renewing itself and there is power in that. A dark sort of power, but power all the same. Not dark in the negative sense, but dark in the other side of the moon, the last phase of the goddess, the night, sort of dark. There is power in one’s blood. I feel very connected to the cyclic nature of the world. After all, “we are all born out of darkness and water, brought into this world through blood and through pain” an I am certainly feeling all of these elements at the moment.

Plus, heyhey, I’m not puuuurgnant. Go uterus!

{Way of topic, but are there any thoughts in the ways of herbal birth control?}

New altar to the Summer God which is channeling the element of Fire.
Fire represents destruction/reconstruction, sexual energy, cleansing, and forceful natures. 
On my “offering plate” (my candle tile) there are:
Basil Leaves— love, wealth, exorcism, and protection.
Valerian Leaves— love, sleep, and purification.
Snap-Dragon flowers— protection
Dried Roses— protection, divination, healing, and love.
Cedar wood— healing, purification, and wealth. 
I always build my altar with things from my garden that I feel I need to go there, then I research their meanings. Apparently, I needed elements of love, healing, wealth, and protection when channeling masculine energy. {:

The theme for this altar for the Goddess is (and always seems to be) water.
Water represents purity, healing, soothing natures, love, and flowering.
As an offering I have:
Magnolia— Fidelity
Sage— immortality, purification, and protection.
Valerian Leaves— love, sleep, purification.
My favorite elements are the vertebrae of some dead animal my herbalist found in the woods near her home.

Had to burn some sage around the apothecary at work today

It was a realllllly heavy and dark energy that was lurking around. Yickyickyick.

First time really burning sage to banish something like that, so that’s a step.

I’ve done cleansing rituals and all that, but uuugggh. Did not like the way I felt at the apothecary. :C

In other news, I made my first herbal air-freshener with lavender, lemon, and tangerine essential oils. {:

Tales of an herbal apprentice {two of many}

I’m heading out to a field early in the A.M. with some hot chai to feel out the energy of some plants my mentor told me to work with. I have to make an offering to them, sit in a field for thirty minutes and just absorb what I can learn from the earth without being obtrusive on its natural state.

Pretty psyched. :D

Tales of an herbal apprentice {one of many}

Soooo today I got to work with the herbal lady today and she told me to garble some goldenrod and to just feel its energy. So, while I was doing it I got a really nice bubbly feeling that matured into confidence as time went on, and the Goldenrod even began to get easier to handle.

At the end of my garbling chore she asked me what it was for and I told her the respiratory system. She didn’t tell me about it, I didn’t know about it before hand, but I felt a pleasnt, warm sensation in my chest the whole time I was working with the stuff. :D JE, the herbal lady, was all kinds o’ happy about that.

I feel accomplished. wot wot.

I’m now drinking Goldenrod tea which is actually pretty tasty. numnumnum.
