Today I would like to share with you some of the
wild harvesting I've been doing.
Above, there is yarrow..
I like to dry it for hot tea,
but it is really good just steeped in water overnight
with other herbs.
Below are a bunch of rose petals.
They smell so amazing!
I've dried them for tea and
also in hopes of adding some to
some handmade soap.
Then there is one of my favourites.
Red Raspberry Leaves
I dry these to add to tea all through the winter.
It's great a balancing hormones and is very soothing.
I gathered a bunch of chive blossoms from our old home's yard.
I put it in some vinegar and it's steeping nicely.
It's so nice on summer salad.
Then lastly I have some fresh arnica flowers steeping
in some olive oil.
I will use this infused oil
in salve for the winter.
It's wonderful for aches and pains.
We are slowly getting settled into our new place.
It seems that there are so many things that need attending to.
Doing a little bit of wild harvesting
brings a smile to my heart.
Praying you have a lovely day!
