Motherhood: rising from the ashes

Posted by Sarah Stogryn on

Some mothers rise like a Phoenix from the ashes into their fourth trimester and beyond, supported and nurtured and reborn into a new wholeness. More often than not though we claw our way out alone; bloodied and bruised; spitting the ash from our mouth that chokes and silences us. But if mothers are anything we are resilient and resourceful.

Make It Yourself Monday: Herbal Infused Oil

Posted by Sarah Stogryn on

I was preparing goldenrod flowers to infuse this afternoon when my neighbour stopped in.  He asked incredulously "WHAT are you doing with THAT?"  I explained that Goldenrod, although it has an unfair reputation for causing allergies like ragweed, is actually a superherb when it comes to muscle pain.  Just rub a little of the flower-infused oil into sore, cramped, injured, or spasming muscles and the relief is immediate.  He didn't believe me.  Lol.  His reaction isn't unusual actually.  As soon as I mention Goldenrod people turn up their noses and tell me they're allergic.  Which is a sad state of...
