Today I sat among the clouds
In the clear blue of the sky
Today I travel through time and space
Suspended in air
A comfy capsule my ride
Up and up we fly
Among the currents of wind
Into the clear blue space above the Earth I know so well
I like to make this herbal tisane when I feel like I might be coming down with a cold. Dried herbs are best for this blend as they are easy to source and store.
Combine the following:
1 tsp Red Clover Blossom – For immune support and nourishment. Red clover blossom is contains many essential vitamins and minerals that are easily absorbed by the body. Red clover blossom fortifies the body and adds an extra source of nutritional support when the appetite is low.
1 tsp Dandelion Leaf- For cleansing the body. Dandelion is a diuretic, so leave this out if feeling dehydrated or having kidney concerns.
1 tsp Mullein Leaf-For soothing the body. Mullein has anti-inflammatory properties and is especially good for calming irritated sinus and lung tissues.
1 tsp Peppermint Leaf-For clearing sinuses and calming. Peppermint helps the body to relax. Breath in the peppermint aroma while drinking the tea to gently sooth sinuses and relax the body.
Mix together well and use 1 tsp per cup (8 oz) of hot water. Allow the brew to sit covered for 10 minutes before drinking. Sip slowly. 3-4 cups can be enjoyed for immune support throughout the day.
I am interested in many things. Farming, plant medicine, healing, yoga, cooking, deepening mind-body understanding and connection, spirituality, animal behavior, writing, visual arts, noodle soup, gummy foods, really good crusty bread….
I often feel like I am a bumble bee. Bouncing from one interesting topic to another, staying there until I get some really excellent bits of nectar and the moving to the next thing. I rarely stay put with one interest for any length of time. Perhaps it is fear of commitment, perhaps that is just my personality. It is a large part of me that I am just starting to see, understand, accept, and explore. I suppose all this writing is just an exercise in learning to be the authentic me. Rara Land (this website) is an exercise in finding my voice, which maybe can unify all these pieces. Come share this learning with me. Cause it is always better it seems, when we do this thing called life together.
