Stay tuned for the new dates for the beginning of 2014. Most likely it will happen at the end of February or the beginning of March.
Email with details to follow shortly so that you can mark your calendar well in advance.
I am just wondering, do we call this season “Fall” because the leaves are falling to the ground? Hopefully all of you get to enjoy this amazing time of the year right now, it has been incredible.
Nature, as it is preparing to rest for the next few months, has been an amazing treat this year: the colours of the leaves, the sky, sunsets and sun rises, the wonder of the ever changing clouds, plants that are starting to bloom as if spring and not snow was around the corner…
It has been hard for me to stay focused on work inside when the outdoors is calling and yes, I am listening: time to go for a quick ride in the bush before attending to clients.
ROSEHIPS: This will probably be the last weekend to pick them for use in the winter. I made the most delicious Rosehip syrup ever!
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”.
Fall indicates the beginning of a cycle when we focus more inward and for many it means battling colds, flues, bronchitis and other ailments.
Therefore it is especially important to pay attention to our lifestyle in order to be able to support our body and keep the immune system strong.
Following are some suggestions.
Specific herbal suggestions for the change in seasons to follow next week. Please let me know if you have any specific questions that I might be able to address via Facebook.
