SUMMER RECAP / PERSONAL UPDATE

Jeez, it's been awhile since our last blog post! So much growth, transformation, and healing has occurred since then - both personally, and in the Apothecary. As many of you know, my partner and I moved in to my grandmother's house in May, to take care of her as dementia took over her mind.

MIDWINTER CHECK-IN & TIPS FOR IMMUNITY

How's your Winter been going? This time brings stillness. Darkness. Death. Rebirth. Renewal. We just celebrated Imbolc. Imbolc is a Pagan holiday on Feb. 1st which honors this very mid-point between Winter Solstice & Spring Equinox ~ We take this time to celebrate the shedding of Winter's decay, and awaiting the return of the Sun. The Crone Goddess represents the Earth in this stage - the old wise woman who has persevered, fearlessly staring death in the face, for she's lived it a thousand times before. She awaits her magnificent rebirth. Cleanse away what is left of last season, and prepare to...
