“Can we go for another walk in the woods?” you ask. Good question.

Let’s see . . . Have we harvested and dried enough comfrey, nettle, and red clover to last until this time next year? Have we tinctured motherwort, yarrow, and St. Joan’s wort? Have we put up infused oils of mullein, plantain, and Hypericum?

We have! We have! We haven’t! We’ll go for a walk in the woods next week, and see may-apples and forget-me-nots, partridge berry and false hellebore. But this week we really must make some infused oils.

Let’s harvest what we need for our oils, and meet some beautiful summer blooms along the way.

Summer solstice is past. It is time to harvest what we have sown. Time to put by medicine against winter’s cold. Time to reweave the healing cloak of the Ancients. Time to restore herbal medicine as people’s medicine.

Time to enjoy green blessings.


P.S. Share the green blessings in person, hands and hearts on, at the Green Witch Intensive (July 12-15, 2012: or the Green Goddess Apprentice Week (August 6-12, 2012:
