A (Very) Useful Weed

• Jun 24th, 2010 • Category: health, herbs, magic

We cleared land and built our house. The first year here everything was so bare! But in the un-landscaped rubble rose several beautiful spires of MulleinVerbascum thapsus.  Mullein is generally found in very poor, disturbed and dry soil and can often be found in rock quarries, along railroad tracks or anywhere the soil has been […]



Essential Library

• Jun 17th, 2010 • Category: herbs

From time to time, I’m going to talk about books I think should be on every green witch’s bookshelf. Today’s book is Jude’s Herbal Home Remedies: Natural Health, Beauty & Home-Care Secrets. This is out in its second edition. The one on my bookshelf is the first edition. The pages are yellowed and the glue […]



Ahhh, Lavender

• Jun 14th, 2010 • Category: health, herbs

I’ve been trying to ring my garden with Lavender … it’s one of the plants the local deer and bunnies don’t seem to like. I thought a full ring might keep the critters away from the other goodies and look rather pretty at the same time. Although I don’t have enough plants for a full […]

• Jun 11th, 2010 • Category: herbs

I can finally get “officially” excited. Although I signed the contract about a year ago, my first book, Herbs: Medicinal, Magical, Marvelous! is now available for pre-order on Amazon. This book is meant as a reference for all the green witches out there. The official blurb on the book reads like this: “For millennia, man […]

• Jun 10th, 2010 • Category: health, magic, Musings

You move too fast.”  Simon & Garfunkel had it right in 1966 and it’s still good advice today. (Man, am I dating myself or what?) Although I’ve thought about “slowing down” many a time, like many other folks, there’s too much to do and not enough time to do it in! I’m splitting my time […]

First, thanks for all the compliments on my blog. They may have truly been intended or not, but I’ll take them.  Even though my comment section tells folks the blog is moderated and the comment won’t be approved if it doesn’t pertain to the subject matter, I get all sorts of “comments” from people that […]



Don’t Scratch That Itch!

• Jun 3rd, 2010 • Category: health, herbs

Any stinging/biting insect thinks I’m a gourmet meal and they’ll stop at nothing to get to it. When I was a kid, Mom would spray me with those toxic insect repellents without success. As an adult, I’ve tried every natural insect repellent I can think of and the bugs still make a beeline for the […]
