A Week of Spring Tonics

I'm definitely feeling like spring has sprung here in Southern Vermont! Despite the snow flurries and cold snap we are having right now we've been having an unusually warm spring and almost no snow this winter. It's been a weird year for sure!

I'd really love to take the coming week to look at different spring tonics. So every day this upcoming week (Mon-Friday) I'll be posting about different plants, foods, simples & herbal tonics that can be used in cleansing and nourishing yourself. I will be including lots of links and recipes as well as some historical folklore, so you won't want to miss it!

In the meantime check this video I found about ground ivy. I have a lot of this springing up & growing in my gardens and on the property we live on right now. I'm betting you too also have some growing nearby!

I'm not sure if I mentioned it before, but I've decided to un-monetize this blog. It just feels weird to be sharing info. on herbs and then getting paid for clicks. In fact I feel more inspired to blog when there is no money involved. Not to mention the point of my blog is not to make money, but to share info and keep a scrapbook of my personal herbal adventures. It's as simple as that! So there you go, why I UN-monetize!

I reserve the right to share links to shops or folks I feel are reputable but I won't be hosting affiliate links and such.
