What a beautiful day to visit with Grandmother Hawthorn!
The sun is shining and warm but we had shade and a breeze.
The sounds of the bees and birds provided the music.
Now, leaf, flower and twigs (and a couple of thorns!) drying for tea; brandy-based tincture soaking; flower essence coming with the new moon tomorrow....
Hawthorn/craetagus spp: An unparalleled remedy for grief, acute and chronic, at all levels of our being. Gentle yet strong, considered a food, and also quite magical -- the tree of the fairies. Want to know more? Just ask.
Rosemary Gladstar’s Heartease Tea
2 parts hawthorn leaf, flower and berry
1 part green milky oat tops
1 part lemon balm
1 part St John’s Wort
Prepare an infusion of the herbs. Sweeten with honey or stevia if desired. Drink 3-4 cups daily “until joy and hope again fill your heart”.
Come see me if I may assist you with your heart-healing. Grandmother Hawthorn may join us.

With special gratitude to Hawthorn,
and to Reisha,
