While this is a site for jewelry- I see a correlation between it & health. Jewelry enhances one's feeling of beauty. It induces confidence. It can be classified as self care!
I have a background in herbalism & would like to draw the 2 elements closer together.
I just returned from the coast where I was delightfully surprised to find that the rose hips were ready for picking!
They are wonderful preventatives for keeping our vitamin C levels up, & I wanted to share a healthy recipe with you.
I would be remiss to not mention ethical harvesting. This is maintained by holding respect for the plant; not taking plants where they are scarce, but abundant. Harvesting towards the bottoms of hills vs the tops (seeds blow downward).
Even asking permission from the plants themselves. Wildcrafting is a beautiful opportunity to get in touch with plant spirit.
With no further ado- the syzurp...
You did it! You now have a syrup that will aide you & yours through the throat aches & sniffles of winter. This will last about 6 months.
May you enjoy this & please let me know how it went & if it turned out delish!
