I'm not good at teaching regular herb classes. You know the ones that you arrive and sit for a few hours of facts and figures about various plants. Don't get me wrong - those are *valuable* spaces and thank Goddess we have teachers like that. My first herb classes were in spaces like that and it got me started on my path as a practicing herbalist. However, whenever I tried to be *that* kind of teacher I struggled. I finally had to admit to myself that the way I taught and wha...t I was inspired by was saturated in the magickal and folkloric, the indigenous and radical, . So now I teach my classes celebrating the full spectrum of what traditional western herbalism has to offer - from it's magickal roots to its modern breakthroughs - and I have a brand new class series starting in May at the @deltamindbodycenter! So if you're a bit wild, witch-hearted, magickally-minded, curious about the esoteric, and the joy of mystery, there's space for you. ↑ Find out more via the profile link. ↑

Friends, every once in a while a really creative and talented person reaches out to send me magickal mail. When I feel like their art would resonate with my community it's easy to say yes and help support the work of heart-centered creators. Caroline of @burntthistleceramics creates "magickal, mystical, and metaphysical" ceramics including tarot-inspired jugs (seriously check them out) and dishes large and small with enchanted animals on them. I've actually been looking for a... rabbit dish for my altar for a few years and when I saw this beautiful blue one with their sun, moon, and crystals tattoos my heart did a little jump of joy. Make sure to check out her account for more of her art and offerings. 🌟

Caroline also enclosed a stick of Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) wood in her package and I realize that I've been gifted this sacred wood multiple times over the years. Which then got me thinking about herbs that show up again and again in our lives in the form of gifts. Any herbs like that for you? Let me know in the comments.

The first time Palo Santo was gifted to me was during a time of particularly rough transition and the new scent filling my home was what I needed to move on from old pain into new joy. And this gift of the wood showed up again at a time of transition, reminding me that joy lies ahead.

🛁󾁃󾁁 Healing herbal baths are so simple to make and use. They have also become my go-to remedy to send to community causes and political action camps. I'll be sharing to recipes that I created this summer as well as tips for making your own custom herbal bath. . . . #wortsandcunning #findyourremedy #workyourmagick #herbalism #herbology #herbalist #plantmedicine #herbalmedicine #Sacramento #SacramentoHerbalist #qpocherbalism #queerherbalism #nothingisordinary #prettylittlethings #witchesofinstagram #liveauthentically #lifestyleblog #lifestyleblogger #magickculture

Some sunset vibes from our camping adventures. I got to see part of the sunrise this morning as I was up early to pick up my brother and his love from the airport. Basil and my parent's puppies nearly passed out from the excitement of having them home for a visit. Feeling lucky and happy myself. ☆ How has the spirit of the sunrise or the sunset been coursing through your life these days? Sunset energies, for example, might be endings and closures, whereas sunrise brings new possibilities. Tell me your story if you like... #sunset #camping #wortsandcunning
