The Witch & Walnut

Hi Everyone! I hope you have all been having a great summer so far. Just a really quick post on some wild plants that are blooming like crazy right now and that I’ve picked. There is a lot blooming now, so I will likely do a few posts. However I post regularly on twitter, so you can always check there! I love planning ahead for the colder months and using the whole summer to gather and dry my plants. Anyhow if you want to get out there and start re-stocking, or if you are a beginner……start working on building your supply slowly. Now is the time!

FullSizeRenderYou don’t have to travel far, all these can be found on roadsides, local forests and trails. Once I get them home I tie them up and hang them outside. In this photo I have collected the following:

  • Birdfoot trefoil

Crystals are ubiquitous in New Age circles. And you might have even heard your “conscious” friends tout the benefits of crystals like they work divine miracles.

Let me clear the air first… Crystals are not a miracle healing solution (well, nothing really is). They work in subtle ways. To use nutrition as a metaphor, they’re comparable to dietary supplements. Just as supplements are designed to literally supplement a healthy diet, crystals supplement overall well-being. Why are crystals a supplement? Well, because the most powerful determining factor of your health is what you do on a regular basis (your thought patterns, beliefs, diet, exercise habits…etc.). So don’t expect to exist in unconditional love if the only change in your life was dangling a rose quartz around your neck (it’ll help though).

CRYSTALS ARE LIVING THINGS

Crystals are unique in that they grow, much like living things do. And they grow in specific…
