- Connie & Susie's Great Harvesting Adventure
I'm visiting my mom and dad at their cabin in Northern Wisconsin. On our way to Mass this morning, I "saw" a patch of red clover! Mom and I decided that after we got home from church, we were going to go back and harvest them. I also noticed patches of common yarrow and was really excited to go harvest. Once we got home and changed, Mom announced that she was not going into the woods because she was not going to get a tick. I agreed and stated that we would only be harvesting from plants on the side of the road and wouldn't be wandering into tall grass into the woods. We grabbed some containers, scissors and gloves and headed out. First off, I have NO IDEA what I thought I saw, but there was no red clover to be found ANYWHERE! But there was a lot of beautiful yarrow. And this is where the fun began. MOM: What's that dinging? ME: I took my seat belt off so I can jump out when we get close. I also put the hazards on so cars can go around us. MOM: When you pull over make sure you pull over onto grass. ME: (Pulling onto grass) MOM: NOT HERE!! This is somebody's lawn!! ME: (Pulling up further next to yarrow) ME: Mom, look at all this yarrow. Can you see the ferned leaves? MOM: I'm not getting out of this car. Do you see all these bees? ME: Mom.. MOM: CLOSE YOUR WINDOW! Don't you see all these bees? ME: Okay, I'll be right back. (I cut a good handfull of yarrow everywhere we stopped so as not to take all so they regrow) ME: (Opening back door): Mom, look how pretty. MOM: DID YOU SHAKE THOSE OUT? I don't want any bugs crawling in this car ME: (Now laughing so hard I can't breathe) Mom, I did. MOM: Get in the car, there are tons of bees over here. MOM: Let's drive down this road and see what's here. What's that dinging? Is your door open? ME: (Laughing so hard I"m crying) MOM!! I don't have my seatbelt on. (LOL) ME: (stopping car) Mom, look that's a Mullein... MOM: YOU CAN"T PARK HERE ON A CURVE! ME: Mom! We are on a side road with no cars in sight, I'm just stopping to take a picture for my plant ID app. I want to make sure it's Mullein. (Get's out of car to take picture) MOM: Do you see all the bees on that?? Hurry up! ME: (Getting back into car and gives mom the phone as we wait for the app to work which it didn't because we couldn't get internet). MOM: What's that dinging? ME: MOM LOL MOM: You're going to need a saw for that. ME: We just need the younger leaves and flowers MOM: (You're going to need a saw) Turn here, TURN HERE! Me: Why?? Mom: Because that's where the cabin is ME: LOL (We are laughing hysterically at this point) We decided we had enough for today and would make another trip out tomorrow. Not only was it wonderful spending the morning together, but I absolutely loved being able to harvest from north woods! I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!! Hoping your Sunday was half as fun as ours! Be Well!
- Super Pain Relief for a True Super Hero
Eli was just 4 years old in 2016 when he was diagnosed with stage 4, high risk Neuroblastoma...a solid tumor childhood cancer. He underwent 16 months of intense treatment, which included chemotherapy, surgery, stem cell transplants, radiation, and immunotherapy. In August 2018, one year after his initial treatment was completed, Eli relapsed. He began more immunotherapy, chemo, radiation, and then a Neuroblastoma vaccine trial. These treatments were done in hospitals both in WI and NYC. Unfortunately, he relapsed again in June 2019, and the journey to healing will now take him to Chicago to begin another trial. Through it all, he has been incredibly brave and has a true zest for life. Eli’s grandma, Bonnie, is my cousin. Our family is incredibly huge so all of my cousins’ children (and their children) are my cousins. With a family this big I don’t have time to sort through 2nd, 3rds, once removed etc. We are all just family. Eli’s mom, Jamie, and I had talked earlier this spring about something to help with Eli’s leg cramps. Because this young sweetheart has been through so much, I did a LOT of research to come up with a gentle salve that was still going to have a powerful effect. I infused dried rosemary, ginger, dandelion and calendula into sweet almond oil and added 350mg CBD Isolate. Plants that all have anti-inflammatory, analgesic properties and enhance the CBD Isolate to work better. There is no scent, so it wouldn’t make him nauseous. I also made sure that none of the products used would break the skin barrier and enter the blood stream since his system is already dealing with lots of other medications. The family had great success with the salve:“Eli experienced frequent and painful leg cramps at night during his treatment. Massaging this salve into his leg helped with the pain immensely and the cramp resolved very quickly. He now asks for the salve if he is having a cramp or any kind of pain. When he had intense pain from his tumor - which ultimately required a few radiation treatments to get under control - we rubbed the salve on his cheek and around his eye where pain was most intense to provide some short-term relief. We have used this salve for other people in the family as well, mainly for headaches or body soreness - the kind of soreness that typically accompanies a misalignment and requires a visit to the chiropractor. The salve has significantly reduced or completely stopped the discomfort in all cases.” Eli is a superhero to so many. His strength and determination are unmatched and I wanted to make sure this pain salve met his expectations. Eli’s Super Pain Salve with 350mg CBD is now available for purchase with 15% of all sales going to “Gold in September (G9)”. I ask that you keep Eli in your prayers. That the Good Lord blesses him with complete healing and he grows to be a wrinkly old man. May God Bless you and your family Super E!
- Desperately Seeking September
People who know me, know that any day that it snows is my favorite day. Don't get me wrong, I love the days that I can be out in my garden or walking in the sunshine or at the lake with a warm summer breeze. But the days when sparkles fall from heaven and blanket the ground in white....[peaceful sigh]...those days are magic for me. So, in order to get to those days, I look forward to September: autumn is coming, cooler days will soon be here, harvests are happening. It's also my birthday month and am I blending up a wonderful celebration for us all!

I'm blending new things just for you that will feature these healing benefits I've learned and help you begin a healing journey. While many people are getting back into a hectic schedule of work and school, September will be a month of self-care for us. Self-care is defined as taking care of one's self without medical or physical consultation.* In health, it includes any intentional actions you take to care for your physical, mental and emotional health. Taking care of yourself helps you do more. Leah Letson shared with us last week how important she feels this connection is, "I can accomplish so much more by staying healthy." She takes care of all aspects of her health in order accomplish more. It starts with self-care. For Self-Care September, each week in September I have a great blog planned that highlights the benefits of different aromatics and how they can be used for self-care. I'm also mixing up special products to help you with that self-care. One week at a time, one step at a time, we will treat ourselves better. We will feel better. We will be able to do more.
