How I dry the nettle tea after thoroughly washing it. I just hang it up to dry up on the wall and cut free leaves when I want a tea. At the end of the week, anything I've not used goes into the compost heap and I cut a fresh batch. #nettle#nettletea#naturalteas#holistic#health

i'm toying with the idea of switching over my website to a new hosting platform in the new year. i'm on a multi-year contract with the current one, so i'm not totally sold on the idea yet, but i plan on testing out an alternative for a new project and will probably make my decision from there. in the meantime, i did update my web store with the remaining #cochineal kits a couple of days ago. i think this kit dyed with stinging nettles is my favourite of what's left - the linen/silk blend on the bottom took the dye in such a rich way while the wool/silk blend is so muted! i think they'd make a really pretty marled-looking shawl 🌿
you can grab the kits from the first link in my profile. they come with a free download code for the shawl, and if they're ordered over the weekend we should still have delivery in canada or the states in time for xmas. in case you're still looking for a gift for that knitter in your life... 🎁
speaking of gifts, i need to get some work done on my to-make list today. what's your plan for saturday?
It's been a tough year for me. I tend to forget all the lessons learned -maybe because of my endless optimism. This harsh beauty will remind me about few simple things which I couldn't understand without that specific experience. Thanks to my dear husband @kaskoma for the present 🖤🌿#tattoo#tattooart#nettle
snow dusted train ride ~ mountains to city rooftops & lake geneva ~ magical ❄️✨✨✨
But aside from the magic, I sure noticed a lot of folks coughing during 24 hours of trains, planes and airports..guess it’s that time of year..mostly sounded like Vata type coughs, typically dry and scratchier, brought on by dry air and cold conditions. On the mental level, excess movement of the mind ie anxiety😬will also contribute to this type of condition. As the season progresses into winter, water and earth based Kapha dosha will become more prominent, bringing heaviness and more moisture. Unresolved coughs can turn more phlegmy and infectious potentially becoming tougher to treat..best to avoid that!👍🏼Enjoy the cool fresh air, but stay warm and hydrated during this season..protect the neck from cold with scarfs and big hoodies, sip warm water throughout the day in place of cold or ice water, and drink hot teas with ginger, nettle, or echinacea to boost the immune system...and getting deeper into the holiday season, try to keep goals and expectations realistic and fun and keep anxiety to a minimum..right..it’s not the best for the immune system..but up the belly laughs with good friends and loved ones, because that is!!🌟😍
