Bone Broth to strengthen your immune system

Tis a change in the wind!

As the seasons start to change, daylight gets less and it turns a bit chilly. It is time to focus on the changes about to come. We need to be mindful about the foods we are eating and the herbs we are taking. Tis the season to build our immune system.

Foods, can be our best allies in the fall and winter season. Eating more seasonal produce, such as greens, squashes, pumpkins, onions and garlic, all aid the boosting of the immune system. Soups are a nice way to eat healthy produce, by adding some herbs and spices, this is now a power house of “Super foods”

Today is harvesting Lemon balm

Leave a comment

Today I say good morning to lemon balm, she grows so abundantly in my garden, on hot summer days she makes a nice body cooling ice tea and on cold winter days she brings calm and warmth to my soul.

This lovely  lemony smelling and tasting herb, can infuse both foods and herbal remedies in a delightful way. As an herbal tea maker this is one of my go – to signature herbs, in my tea blends,

I adore using lemon balm in my healing medicines, it works nicely on any lip issues such as fever blisters, herpes blisters or chapped lips. I also use it in my skin healing salves and my gardeners hand cream.

Lemon balm holds calming healing properties for the soul and the body.

This morning I will be harvesting the Lemon Balm in my yard to dry for winter use, stop by the shop to get some!

Today’s herbal tea at the shop will be with Lemon Balm!
