...where we talk about living our best lives

i wish you could smell this

i wish you could smell this

I was going to tell you that Douglas Fir is my favorite, but picking a favorite plant is like picking a favorite child or a favorite song; they're all my favorite, depending on which one I'm with at the time. 💚 But this beauty is an old friend. She stands tall and strong as she sways gently with the wind. She reminds us to stand firm and to hold our ground, but also to be easy, allowing the winds of life to blow through us and around us. She whispers her love gently into the breeze. Her branches have this sweet...

a blessed Samhain

a blessed Samhain

A blessed Samhain to those celebrating tonight. The harvest is finished. Medicines have been gathered. Offerings have been made. The veil is thin. Today marks the end of the harvest, so we celebrate and welcome the darker part of the year. Today is also a day of remembering our ancestors & those who have gone before us. I've got a lovely Autumn meal planned for this evening, along with some herb infused whisky and medicine making. The weather promises to be moody this evening, which is perfect for this day. How do you celebrate Samhain or Halloween?

This is so special...and it's almost gone.

This is so special...and it's almost gone.

This is so special...and it's almost gone. I just strained out the last batch of our breast massage oil until next year. During the spring, I gathered cleavers, dandelions, douglas fir needles, pine resin and red clover, and blended them with calendula, chamomile & rosehips from previous harvests. This batch has been infusing since spring and it is amazing. Many of the things we offer are made in limited quantities because of the nature of what we do. When I go out into the forests & meadows, I take only what I need, careful not to over harvest. Sometimes there's...

fall in montana

fall in montana

Fall in Montana feels a lot like Winter, where I come from. Today actually looks a lot less like this photo. It's still dark at 8:30 am, but I'm not sure there's going to be much light today anyway. There's snow creeping down the mountains and those mountains are awfully close. We know it's coming and it's coming soon. It's not always easy to say goodbye to Summer - feeling the sun's warm rays on your skin, floating down the river, gorgeous flowers, fresh fruit - these things are medicine to us. But they'll come back, like they always do....

these woods are full of medicine

these woods are full of medicine

"These woods are full of medicine" ....I said to her as she peeked into by baskets, while walking by. I rarely run into anyone while I'm on my forest walks. I generally go out of my way to try to go to the most secluded places. I do this for a variety of reasons, not least of which is that I'd rather be alone with nature. But she was coming my way, so I holstered my pruners and sort of sheepishly moved my baskets and my big ol' 2ft pruners off of the path. She peeked in as she was...
