I spent the past week planning out my 2019 bookshelf (aka my personal book nook). Every January, I make a list of books and herbal courses I want to take, and it helps keep me on track to actually finish one before starting another. This year my mind and soul have been really drawn to […]

Getting outside is one of my favorite things. In winter, it’s also one of the hardest things (for me, at least). I’m a perpetually cold person, and winter is my toughest season. I have Raynaud’s syndrome, and this definitely impacts how much time I can spend outdoors when it’s cold, and is physically limiting to […]

If 2018 threw you for an emotional loop and shook the foundations of your life, come on in and have a seat. Emotional resilience is something I often talk with my clients about being just as important as the foods they’re eating, the exercise they’re committing to and the supplements or herbs they’re taking.

Intuitive Tea Blending

By Lindsay Kluge

Tea blending is a totally magical process. Fewer things make me feel more in control of my own health and wellness than being able to intuitively blend my own herbal teas. And fewer things make my kitchen space feel more “potions class” than my apothecary nooks. When you start to create your own apothecary at home, […]

This past weekend, I scooped up my foraging gear and loaded the pup in the car and took off on a long autumnal hike in the October Blue Ridge of Virginia. It’s been some months since I’ve gotten myself outside on a slow and unhurried hike by myself. I’ve had a lot on my plate […]

Overnight infusions are my favorite way to brew tea when the days are still on the warm side. The nights are a little brisk and the days are savory warm. It’s the in-between tea season where not too hot and not too cold rule the beverage selections in my house and room temperature seems to […]
