Hello Herbies … so it’s September and most of us are harvesting what’s left of our herbs for winter use. I started making some smudge sticks and am getting carried away with creativity. As a first timer mine are a bit scruffy but I am still excited to use them once they are dry. These three are each made up of 4 herbs. So what do you think for a first timer?!
Sage - negative energy clearing
Tulsi - purification and calming
Rosemary - protection
Thyme - dispels melancholy and hopelessness
There is a lot of to learn about smudge sticks. Use your herbal information and you can get carried away also.
Smudging is done by lighting the end of the stick, dispelling the flame and then use a fan, a feather or your hand to spread the smoke.

A good day to be simmering bone broth!! Besides carrots, celery and onions I like to add medicinal herbs nettle leaf, calendula flowers yarrow, usnea, elecampane, ginger, mushrooms, garlic … to name a few. I simmer it for at least 20 hrs to get all the medicinal benefits from the (chicken) bones
Field Trip to Camrose Hill Flower Farm, lunch at The Lowell Inn and shopping in Stillwater.
Renee, Bonnie, Shirley, and Chip visited with Honorary Member Barbara Dow on Thursday. What a lovely photo!

The MN Herb Society held its annual Garden Tea on Tuesday, July 21. Our hostess was the lovely Carlotta Posz! It was a very warm day but Carlotta’s gardens were beautiful and the company - after Covid restrictions - was wonderful. Thank you, Carlotta, for a fantastic day.
