Backyard medicine pt. 2 

Summer is here in Newfoundland and medicine is growing all around us. 

The smell of sweet fragrant Wild Rose dances on the wind & nourishing Red Clover grows at our feet and delights our senses with it’s flashes of purple. Sturdy yarrow springs up among the tall grass with its fluffy leaves and distinct white flowers. Not only are these flowers therapeutic to look at and smell, they are very healing to many of the bodies systems. 

These are some of my all time favorite local Newfoundland healers. Seen here in this basket picked in my backyard to be dried for topical skincare oils. 

Also in the basket is some Calendula from my garden which will also be dried for infused oil. 

These herbs and flowers can all be washed and dried and enjoyed in tea, floral steams or prepared in tincture. If you feel called to these herbs I will be working with all 3 preperations this summer and offering them through my business Wild Flower Co. 

Enjoy this beautiful summer and the blessings it brings, take time to sit with and smell the flowers. Talk to yarrow, just don’t be surprised when she answers. ✨
