Thank you @dumbartonhouse and everyone who attended this morning’s workshop, Historic Healing Herbs. I had so much fun demonstrating the craft of salve making and talking about my favorite subject: PLANTS!

I hope that everyone who learned my secret recipe for herbal salves will put it to good use in their own kitchens.

Fall is about exploring the shadows. Shorter days and cooler weather are ahead. Make it cozy by lighting a candle, reading some poetry, and sinking into a hot bath with Green Fairy bar soap. The magic is in the sweet and relaxing scent of anise and peppermint. If you love the scent of licorice like I do, you will flip for this stripy, seasonal soap. 🖤💚🖤💚

Green Fairy is infused with a native herb called anise hyssop. It’s purple flowers attract many bees and butterflies in my garden. Anise hyssop is wonderful for unwinding, easing the mind, and clearing out unwanted energy.

It’s not too late to plant in the shoulder season in DC. We’ll be eating fresh greens in the weeks ahead, and it only took a minute to seed. 

Wow, plants, just 🥬W🥬😳🥬W🥬.

Join me for a workshop October 9th outside in the garden at Dumbarton House. Each participant will take home a sample of herb-infused balm we make during the demonstration. 

One herb I'll be talking about is called Lady's Mantle. This herb has largely been forgotten, and isn't found in modern herbal reference books. Beyond its evocative name and mystical value, Lady's Mantle has many curative properties. It was a handy herb to early Americans who brought it with them to the New World. Find out more by joining me during the Historic Healing Herbs Demonstration October 9. Get your ticket now at DumbartonHouse.org.

I’ll be making more Aloe Vera soap this week with tons of fresh aloe from the garden. 💚

Aloe Vera grows easily indoors in a container. You can reach for it when you have a sunburn, acne, or any minor skin irritation. Cut open a leaf, and you’ll understand why. It’s filled with super hydrating gooey #plantmagick!

Studies have shown that aloe helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It contains a molecule called sterol that aids your skin in the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. This gives your skin elasticity and helps lock in moisture.

I grow aloe outdoors during the summer months. When the season is over and I’ve harvested everything, I keep some of the “pups” that grow off to the side of the main plant. I pot those up to grow indoors over winter. So I always have aloe growing year-round.

Aloe Vera Soap is available in my shop. It’s scented with organic frankincense and lavandin essential oils. It’s vegan-friendly, too. It’s a celebration of the bounty of summer. Because the harvest this year is so big, I will have Aloe Vera Soap in stock all through the upcoming holiday season.
