I am very blessed to have some new connections in my field. I have recently connected with Lisa Jeanine from alchemillasapotek.blogspot.se, who makes spagyric tinctures. This is the traditional and original way the Alchemists made plant medicine. Each tincture contains the complete parts of the plants: the Body, Soul, and Spirit. Processing involves several steps including distillation and calcination and often takes months to complete.
I am sharing and trading many plants and ideas with her. This last weekend she brought me to a place where we could harvest Acorus Calamus root. This is a very aromatic root with unique and even magical properties. It has been on my list of plants to meet all summer.
A plant for finding your voice.
Also on this day we visited Lisa’s friends and well known establishment urnatur.se.
What a treat for the kids and me! With hectares of handcrafted treehouses fitted with beds, cottages with the best living roofs I have ever seen, kitchens with handcrafted features and much more, the walk around the property was truly like, as they say on their website, a poem. I felt like the forest was hugging me back, speaking of calm and freedom. This place is truly unique, a celebration of nature. I hope to return some day.
