Chakras, essential oils & Yoga part 4:

The heart chakra is the energy center of the heart and chest and is associated with “the sympathetic and harmonious coexistence of body and spirit.” Essential oils like peppermint & tea tree which are purifying and awakening are good for the heart chakra. Suggested yoga pose is the camel .

An herbal bath is a great way to unwind the stress from the body. Light some candles, pour a glass or cup of the most relaxing beverage and lock that bathroom door.

Here's an herbal bath formula from my favorite Co-op -Frontier.... Relax.

1/4 cup chamomile flowers
1/2 cup lavender flowers
1/4 cup lemon balm
1/4 cup mugwort (optional)
1/2 cup Red rosebuds and petals
4 cups of rapidly boiled water (be careful of steam burns!)

Mix the dried herbs in a large ceramic bowl. Gently pour boiled water over the herbs and cover. Let steep for 20 minutes. Cool and strain. Add the stained liquid to your filled bath. Soak for 15 minutes (or longer!)

If you want to make and save extra liquid, add 1 oz of vodka or 1/2 oz of Vitamin E oil per 16 oz. (No, I don't think this would count as an herbal cocktail!) Store in a bottle for later use.

CBD and Drug Interactions

I am often asked if CBD products can interact with medications. The answer is yes and no.

First, it depends on the type and the amount of medications that you are taking and which biological pathways in the body the prescribed medications are influencing, particularly those involved with cytochrome P450. However, at this time no major interactive events have been noted in the research.

Second, CBD, depending on the dosage, can increase or decrease the effectiveness of the prescribed medications. However, this is generally not the case. CBD tends to be very restorative. Often, medications can be deceased with the addition of CBD. Talk with your prescriber before changing any medications.

Third, if you are considering adding CBD to your treatment. I always recommend that you go slow and low, getting to a therapeutic dose and monitoring how it is affecting your body.

Pesticides on our produce and meat can cause a host of health issues. Endocrine Disrupters found in the pesticides and other environmental toxins play a major role in our lives from infertility to chronic immune disorders.

However, buying all organic and grass fed isn’t always feasible. So if you have to choose what organic produce to buy, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) recommends the following:

Strawberries, spinach, kale, nectarines, apples, grapes, peaches, cherries, pears, tomatoes, celery, potatoes

Taken from EWG’s dirty dozen list for 2020.

Mullein is an herb that is considered a weed and grows along roads and in vacant areas.
Mullein keeps the lungs healthy and clear. Great for lung conditions like asthma and bronchitis. It is also very beneficial to people who smoke. Mullein brings comfort to inflamed lungs and prevents coughing until congestion is broken up. Then mullein acts as an effective expectorant.

Mullein can be smoked in an herbal blend, drank as a tea and taken as a tincture.

Chakras, essential oils and yoga part 3:

Solar plexus chakra is the energy area located midway between the navel and the bottom of the sternum and is concerned with our personal power or will and how we connect with others. Essential oils that promote protection, balance and purification are helpful when working on the solar plexus chakra. Lemon, myrrh*, frankincense and balsam fir needles are the oils of choice.

The bow position, manipura, helps to open up the solar plexus and helps to connect to ourselves and those around us.

CoVid has changed a lot of businesses and how businesses survive.😐 We micro-business owners have had to make choices to continue to thrive. At H&S, we will continue to provide products and services that we can stand behind and stay with our mission statement. After much contemplation, we will no longer be offering CB Distillery products. We still will carry Karma Farma, Clean Remedies and our own Hemp products line. We have lowered the prices on many of our CBD products. Come in and talk with us. WE can help.

CBD SPOTLIGHT:
I get asked frequently if CBD is safe for pregnant women to use to manage morning sickness, muscle cramps, anxiety, etc. Unfortunately for me to give a definitive answer, more formal and extensive research has to be done. There just isn’t a lot of research currently. So, I err on the side of caution and suggest other plants that are safe.

Here’s a few tidbits I did pick up while reading what research there is available if you are considering using CBD to manage during pregnancy.

1) CBD does cross into the placenta and changes can occur, possible low birth weight, hyperactivity, etc.
2) CBD may induce contractions.
3) The CB receptors in the uterus are signaled - research is lacking as to the long term effects on the baby of this interaction.

So, in sum, we just really don’t know enough and when we don’t know enough, we are very very cautious.

Essential oils, chakras & yoga practice go hand in hand. Chakras are energy points or wheels in the body. The root chakra, or muladhara, is located at base of the spine, the pelvic floor and those first three vertebrae. Opening up this energy area in the body helps us to be grounded and feel more connected to the earth.

Yoga Pose: Upward Bow
Essential Oil: Patchouli

Dab a little diluted oil on the sacrum to help focus. Blend 28 drops of patchouli with 28 drops of lavender. Combine with your favorite body oil to make a lovely massage oil.

You can also put patchouli in the diffuser while working on the root chakra.

Herbal shrubs are trending and are a great way to use up soon to be too ripe fruit and your abundant garden herbs. Vinegar based drinks were used to help cool the body before we had refrigeration and ice cubes. There are lots of recipes online. Here's our own recipe for you to try:

1 cup white wine vinegar
2/3 cup raw cane sugar
1 cup strawberries
1/4 cup dried lemon balm (1 cup fresh)

Place all ingredients into a quart jar, cap and shake. If using a metal cap, place parchment paper between the jar and the lid. Place in the refrig and infuse for 5-6 days, shaking daily. Strain the mixture into a jar or bottles, cap tightly and LABEL. Stores in the frig for up to 6 months. Enjoy.

Use an ounce of your shrub with a glass of seltzer, ginger ale or your favorite spirit. Use two tablespoons with 1/2 cup of olive oil for a vinaigrette or as a seasoning for roasting vegetables.

Shrubs also make great gifts!

Our Story

Sometimes a new endeavor begins when a mom, who absolutely loved being a mom and enjoyed her children immensely, has to cope with a huge empty nest. Necessity prompts her that it is time to follow a different path. So, I went back to school – an excellent coping strategy, albeit an expensive one. When I completed my first Master’s degree in Nutrition and Herbal Medicine, Hedgewitch Enterprises (HER) was born in a little office in Abbottstown, PA, during the fall of 2017. However, I very much love the process of learning and though I did learn a great deal with first degree, I wanted to learn much more about plant medicine. So, I continued for another year and completed a second Masters in Therapeutic Herbalism. I found that my heart truly lies with the plants that can heal us and with the people who need them. So, HER expanded a little and opened a small booth, Herbs & Sympathy, at The Markets of Hanover in August 2018 with the intention of helping more people and upholding her mission statement. By February 2019, she had to expanded again into a larger booth at the market and moved the private office to a home office to conserve time and resources. We love the name of our little booth so much that we decided to change our business name to Herbs & Sympathy.

I feel very blessed and grateful to be on this path and am very happy that my youngest and his lady love have decided to join me. Please come and spend some time with us. We would love to share how plants – leaf, petal, root – can move us from here to healthy.

Our Mission is to strive through honest, heartfelt, educated intention and earth conscious endeavors to create and to bring to clients and customers, services and products that support body, soul and mind.

In peace,

Faith
