Place petals in a mason jar and cover with olive or sweet almond oil. Let sit in a cool dry place with lid on for 4-6 weeks. Strain petals and store in a dark bottle. You can add vitamin E oil to extend the shelf life. Apply daily to affected area.💜
I am used to using dried calendula in my herbal soaks for homemade salve. So using them on my food is something new! People also use the dried form as substitute for saffron!! Some of the acting ingredients in the flower petals have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial abilities that help heal cuts and burns. When you eat calendula, you'll gain some antioxidants in the form of flavonoids and carotenoids. The leaves also contain lutein and beta-carotene.🌼
📢📢💥 VENDORS SHOUTOUTS 💥📢📢 Days #6 of our Vendors Spotlight Shoutouts. We are happy to present one of our Amazing Vendors that will be at For His Glory Health Fair and Pop Up Shop on Sunday July 30, and Sunday, August, 13 at 457 Grand Avenue, Brooklyn NY. Be Made Whole is a family owned business which seeks to share the benefits of living a (whole)istic lifestyle in the areas of Body, Mind & Soul. The business is broken down into several individuals with different roles. The manager is Monique, her husband Maurice, their children Marquis and Micah and her parents Margaret and Wilson. Their business is based on the scripture found in John 5:6 where Jesus saw a man that had been lying in a sick condition for a long time. It reads: "When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had already been a long time in that condition, He said to him, "Will you be made whole?".
This is the same question that they ask all their customers. They believe it's important that people use natural products on their skin since these products are also absorbed by the body. They use 100% natural ingredients in all of our products. They handcraft our own line of soaps, deodorants, toothpaste, body scrubs, body butters and souffles, herbal salves for pain and lip balms. They have something for the entire family from baby to adults.

I can't count how many times in my life I have reached for German Chamomile... I'm working on chamomile tinctures for the homestead at the moment, sweetened with honey among other tinctures in the works. It's such a fun journey. German chamomile tea and essential oils helped Alexander with growing pains. (Applied topically. I don't recommend having anyone little ingest essential oils because of their concentration levels... it's just not necessary but topically if it means I don't have to use ibuprofen and overload his little liver then I'm all about it) German chamomile helps me mellow out. It's dark blue sapphire color is nothing short of breath taking! It mildly antiviral, helps with menstrual pain. It's an all around wonderful herb for so many reasons. I use it in almost all of my home made salves. I hope you give it a try at some point in your oil journey. If you are ever interested in knowing more about essential oils I'm your hippie! #DaniYLapothecary
It has been a month since our solar infused St. john's Wort workshop @harlowatelier with a wonderful group of wild women. Your solar oil infusions must be magically turning red with all the sun we have had. They can be pressed on the new moon or patiently wait for the next full moon August 7th which will maximize to 6 weeks infusing! Perfect timing to strain it through cheesecloth into your clean clear dropper jars. You can then use it to massage on skin for sunburns, bruises, sciatica, sores and as a pain reliever. It can be made into lip balms with a rosy tint and to prevent / heal cold sores. It is a great anti-viral. Keep some in your first aid kit for burns. Now you are one step away from making a simple salve with a portion or all of your oil. Here is the simple St. Johns Wort Salve recipe: clean amber jar ( the one used for infusing, cleaned works perfect.) You will need 80ml. solar infused St.John's Wort Oil. 20ml. pure beeswax shaved. Basically 1 cup of oil to 1/4 cup of beeswax. So it is 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp. of shaved beeswax. Use a stainless steel bain-marie to heat oil on low and add beeswax. Infuse your oil and beeswax with your healing intentions, incantations, songs for added benefits. When melted dip a Tbsp in the mix and freeze it to see your consistency. If you want it softer or harder is up to you. If you find it is too soft add a bit more beeswax to the melting mix and if too hard add more oil. Once the right consistency for you, remove from heat and pour into a small mason or amber twist top jar. Let it harden and cool then add lid. When properly done they can last for a couple years. With beeswax you get protective, moisturizing, antioxidant properties. Enjoy this healing process and thank your bee friends for the amazing wax. This can be done with many other herbs and oils you can also mix oils together like plantain, Self Heal, Calendula and so on. Enjoy concocting your magical potions.

One of my favorite plants--roman chamomile. (Not to be confused with its German cousin.) Thus one spreads on the ground but has a little more bitter taste than the German one. It comes back ever year and blooms all summer into fall. Do you grow this beauty in your garden?

I grow organically. I infuse #soaps & salves with plant medicines like Comfrey, lemon balm, mint, calendula and more
I make a #deodorant from clays and plant oils that works! AND it even detoxifies your skin, helping to heal and remove the toxins in commercial deodorants like aluminum and parabens. I explain it clearly on the website. There's even a Teeth Paste!
These are the offerings I have currently, as I am growing and harvesting and drying and infusing fresh plant friends for more creations that feed and #heal your #skin , and #nourish your #spirit . 😍🌷🌱🌺🙌
I love plants and animals. I love people. I love resistance. I love DIY and self sufficiency. I love community. 🌎
I love how powerful we are. How capable of real health and healing and fighting and leading we are, despite the oppressions and capitalism and other -isms that most definitely exist in this world. 👊✊ We all deserve and need and are taking back access to wisdom & knowledge and resources that support our whole lives and the vitality of air, water, soil, plants, animals.
We are more than consumers. We are more than we think sometimes.
I hope you'll visit these online places and better even if you come by and snack on some veggies and splash in the brook and take some fresh plants home to make your own makeries!
Weird Bird Apothecary's first muscle soothing salve formula, still warm from the pot. Trying to think of an interesting name for it. This recipe is good for muscle aches and cramps of all sorts. ❤️ I'm going to try them out and see how they work. Then I'll make a bunch more. #weirdbirdapothecary#salves#selfsustainability#herbsheal#DIY
