Just made some healing chamomile salve from the chamomile infused sunflower oil I put together under the Gemini new moon back in late May. For what its worth the oil was also infused with two rose quartz stones that I plopped in there. for the 5 weeks it sat warming in the sun. I dont know, all around this chamomile oil feels really special to me. I put a lot of love and intention into it and the feelings I get from it are very much heart healing and warming. All the sweet things in this Lil bby. And the chamomile was all harvested locally- growing wild :) (pineapple weed) Chamomile salve is helpful for diaper rash, sunburns, eczema, scrapes, minor cuts, razor burn, chapped lips etc - a cure all rly. Gonna see how the salve sets and will eventually get a couple in the shop. For now I shall get lost in these warm colors and the sweet & subtle fragrance 🙃 #infusedoil#solarmethod#chamomile#herbs#gemini#herbalhealing#salves#healingsalves#chamomilesalves
I've been busy this week getting ready for two days of workshops on Herbal Cold and Flu Care in Aamjiwnaang, and I get to cap of the week with a Friday afternoon medicine walk at a private residence. Woohoo! Can't wait for that!
Part of the preparations for this and regular fall work involves straining things.... lots of herb oils and glycerin tinctures made from medicines fresh harvested over the summer.
These are some of the things we will learn about and get hand on practice with during next summer's herbal intensive!
Pictured here are some sticky poplar buds that have been soaking in oil since they were gathered last spring!

Wild Roots and Fall Forage - An Herb Walk
September 21st, 2017
Ann Arbor, MI
Autumn is the season of harvest, and the last opportunity to gather wild herbs before they are buried under winter snow. Herbalist jim mcdonald will be leading participants around the fields and woods surrounding the EAC in Oxford to explore the medicinal virtues, identification, folklore and preparation of many of the common "weeds" we pass by every day. The information presented will be both specific and practical, based on Jim's twenty years experience in gathering, preparing, and using herbal remedies, and provide a basis for participants to incorporate what they have learned into usable skills with which to maintain and restore health. Some of the plants to be covered include Burdock, Yellow Dock, Solomon's Seal, & Wild Yam.
jim mcdonald has been practicing the art of herbcraft for over 22 years, and offers a knowledge of herbalism that blends western folk and indigenous views of healing with the Vitalist traditions of 19th century western herbalism. He has taught classes and workshops throughout Great Lakes bioregion and the US, hosts the website www.herbcraft.org and is currently writing (alternately) "A Great Lakes Herbal" and "Foundational Herbcraft". Jim is a community herbalist, a manic wildcrafter and medicine maker, an occasional email mangler, and has been an ardent student of the most learned teachers of herbcraft... the plants themselves.
Calendula Oil Infusion 🌻🌾
Here is the first step to my homemade calendula oil infusion. The second step will be posted in 4-6 weeks, when the flowers have infused all their goodness into the oil. I will use this to make healing ointment and salves. I'm excited to show you all the outcome and what I will be making with this beauty 😊
Calendula calendula officinalis- antiseptic and antimicrobial. Applied topically, it can be used to treat a number of skin issues. The constituents in calendula allow it to be anti-inflammatory. This makes it perfect to help treat eczema, psoriasis, acne, wounds, scrapes/burns, and so much more! It is also a class A1 herb, which means it is categorized as one of the safest herbs to use! Gentle enough for babies and children!
