@saqaart inspired beginnings. . At our meeting this month, Georgia and Sheryl showed us a few techniques for abstracting. . I spent my #sundayartday playing with their techniques and with a new #fusible web. .

Oak bark was one of the finds on our #herbwalk yesterday with #thepracticalherbalist. . A tree-trimmer was pruning a beautiful red oak just off the trail. We swiped a couple of smaller leafy branches and two chunks of larger limbs for #medicine. . This is the resulting basket of Oak Bark that's now drying in my office. . Oak is highly astringent, making it good for strong diarrhea and similar complaints, but the taste is rather disagreeable. It's easier to use as an external wash for particularly weepy sores and rashes or flaccid tissues like hemorrhoids. . Oak has been a partner on an energetic level and in #naturalmagick for me, but I haven't had call for #oakmedicine as an #herbalremedy yet. This is going to be an interesting year, I warrant! . #plantmagic #plantpower #plantmedicine #kitchenwitch #hedgewitch #herbalmedicine #familyherbalist #familyherbalclinic #creatingabetterme #creatingabetterworld

Herbal #sandart - Vitamix Powder for my #caninefriend. . Dog food day is coming fast this month. I restocked my #herbalblend for him today using #elderberry because the fall is hard on a #canine's immune system just like it is on ours-Elderberry is a traditional remedy backed by scientific study that helps us build stronger cell walls. . Plus, it makes the layers so pretty before I mix them up! .

Wow! That's good tea. . The scent is earthy, a little like a barnyard, with that rolled red autumn leaf smell of a good #blacktea. . The flavor is strong, like a smoked tea, but without the smoke. I may have made it stronger than I should have...I wasn't expecting such a potent steeping. It's astringent and earthy with an unexpected lightness to the finish. @taooftea's got a good one here. Perfect for the coming fall. . #herbalmedicine #tealovers #tealoversunite #foodasmedecine #peacefullifestyle #creatingabetterme #creatingahealthylife #creativelife #tastystuff

Cavaleras time! . As the eclipse waned, I made Cavaleras for this year's #dayofthedead celebration. I focused on helping my ancestors find their way out of the dark and into the light of our lives for this year's celebration as I worked. . I decided to try the dehydrator this year. . I learned that you MUST use the lowest temperature setting possible to avoid causing the sugar to liquify! . Luckily I saw what was happening before it was too late. Two of the three I made this year are a little odd looking, but they'll be okay when I add the decorations to them in late October. . I decided to omit the vanilla extract and add a few anti-ant essential oils this year instead-#lemongrass, #cedarwood, #pennyroyal, and #myrtle. . Get my recipe on my site-search Cavaleras.
