Un nome evocativo e pieno di fascino:
Àgave s. f. [lat. scient. Agave, dal greco ἀγαυός «splendido, meraviglioso»].
Nella cultura meridionale, l'Agave prende il nome di zammàra o zabbàra, dall'arabo sabbara:
secondo le vecchie credenze popolari porta fortuna e tiene lontano l'invidia

For me Dahlias equal total joy. Growing in every colour of the rainbow from cactus to peony varieties I truly believe there is a Dahlia out there for everyone! 🌸
One of my current favourites (it changes every season) is Daisy Duke with its bright coral petals and deep raspberry centre. It’s a diva of a flower and looks incredible. So that’s mine! What’s your favourite Dahlia?
I think I’m going to let my hair do the talking for this little blue bottle. If you are wondering, yes it totally works. Why? Because it’s clinically proven. I will never put anything else on my hair. Been using this exclusively for 3 years. I’m a Lifer! 💜
If you need help, let me offer some suggestions that will match your Hair Goals.
Lowlander 0.00% Beer: “Packed with flavour, and true to a Belgian-style wheat beer, it’s fruity, but without being sweet. There’s a zesty aroma, and the balance of lemon and orange makes this beer refreshing too. What impresses most is this beer’s body. Whereas many zero-alcohol beers can feel a little thin, this pours and has the consistency of the real deal,” says @clairendodd#triedandtested@lovefooddotcom .

Oxymels - from the Latin oxymeli meaning “acid and honey”⠀
Oxymels are preparations using both vinegar and honey. These mixtures have a long history of use in herbalism, dating as far back as the ancient Greeks.⠀
Vinegar extracts (also known as “aceta”) are weaker than alcohol based tinctures, so the required dose is higher. And, while vinegar won’t draw out all the same phytochemicals that alcohol will, it does excel at drawing minerals and vitamins from a plant.⠀
Make as you would a tincture but strain after 2 weeks maximum.⠀
• take a jar, fill it loosely with whatever fresh herb you’re using ⠀
• pour the honey over your herbs into your jar.⠀
• make sure the honey settles and all of the air bubbles come to the top. ⠀
• add more honey as needed.⠀
• cap your honey, and once or twice a day, ⠀
• turn the bottle on its head to “stir” the mixture.⠀
• Strain after 2 weeks⠀
Hippocrates spoke highly of oxymels for coughs but cautions against its use for people with a cold and dry constitution (these people are commonly always the coldest in the room, wearing sweaters when others have on t-shirts, and may have dry skin, dry eyes, etc.). He⠀
also suggested heating these mixtures gently when they are being consumed during cold weather.⠀
William Cook, a Physiomedicalist of the 1800s preferred vinegar as a menstruum for issues of the respiratory system. He felt that it concentrated the herb’s actions to the respiratory system.⠀

Which one of the elephant gin is your favorite?
Distilled on 14 botanicals including some fascinating African botanicals like Baobab, Buchu, devil's claw and African wormwood. A treat neat or in a gin and tonic.
Cheers to my man @hammer_photography for, yet another, awesome shot.

Every herbalist has their own “way” of practicing herbalism, this is what makes the herbalism field so vast and diverse! This can also make it challenging to navigate, especially for new herbalists. Typically, you can consider “community” and “clinical” the two major paths as a practicing herbalist. There is certainly overlap between the two and it can be very beneficial to incorporate both ways of working! 🌿
Community herbalism is largely focused around traditional folk preparations and historical uses of herbs, but of course is also informed by modern uses and research. This path gives a lot of freedom to an individual on how they wish to investigate herbalism and grow their interests. Although self-study is an integral part, practicing as a community herbalist does require other means of hands-on experience and/or formalized study with an herbal mentor. 🍃
Clinical herbalism is a more specialized practice of herbalism which requires professional education with specific clinical application and training. Research and in-depth symptom pattern analysis lie at the core of practicing as a clinical herbalist. This path is strongly suited for one-on-one work, and certain clients with chronic or complex health issues may prefer a clinical herbalist. 🌱
It certainly takes time to build up your unique way of working, and it’s important to reaffirm your goals and intentions frequently as you go. For more tips on these two paths, read “Community Vs. Clinical Herbalism: Striking A Balance In Your Herbal Practice” now on the blog! ✨
Community. This is something that has been on my mind a lot lately and I'd like to hear your thoughts on a few things.
When I'm honest with myself and others, I have to admit I tend more towards isolation. I'm quiet. I'm introverted. I'd rather read a book than go to a party or conference. I'm completely comfortable with and enjoy meaningful interactions with people I love, but going out of my way to talk to someone I don't already know doesn't come naturally to (and is very difficult for) me.
But I need humans. I need community. We all do. I want to be the kind of person who steps outside my comfort zone when I need to to help nurture community - in my neighborhood, amongst my friends, within my family, and in my work and through my businesses.
So I want to know how I can show up better for you. How can I be here for you? How can I encourage you more? How can I interact with you in genuine ways that will help us build meaningful friendships through our little screens?
I really want to know because I want to be better at this. How can I be a good friend to you even though we have never met? I ask you questions here often because I genuinely want to hear from and interact with you but I think I can do more than that.
I would love to hear your thoughts and insight on this. How do you think we can better build community here? How can I help you feel like you are heard and included?

Angelica is as lovely as the name suggests! Appreciated in both culinary and medicinal worlds, angelica has a long history of use addressing digestive disorders, sluggish metabolism, and delivering nutrition to all parts of the body through stimulating circulation. The root, seeds, leaves, and stem can all be used for preparations and are well suited for a range of culinary uses as well – angelica is particularly popular for use in gin and vermouth! ☁️ Its name stems from the Greek arkhangelos, meaning archangel. A European myth tells that the archangel Gabriel or Michael appeared one night in a monk’s dream, advising its use as a medicine to help prevent the spread of the bubonic plague during the 17th century. It’s said that those who kept a piece of angelica root in their mouth were spared from illness. ✨
Who knew the herbs in your garden would be as good in the bathtub as they are in a mug? Bath teas are a perfect way to take some time off from social summer activities and give your mind and body a rest. Breathe in the aromatherapy, soak in the calming herbal benefits, and allow your body to relax as the herbs and warm water soothe your muscles. 🌼
Enjoy this blend of five soothing herbs for your next summer bath tea! Simply mix the herbs together in a small, air-tight jar and save them in a cool, dark place. 🌿
To prepare your bath tea, fill a small, reusable, natural muslin or linen drawstring bag with up to 2 tablespoons of your summer garden bath tea mix. Hang the bath tea bag from the faucet while the bathtub is filling with water. Let the water filter through the tea first, or tightly close the bag and steep in warm bath water, allowing it to float in the water beside you. 🌸
