Hello sweet friends!
This is the time of year when the suns rays shine directly on the equator...the Northern hemisphere begins to tilt away from the sun; we have the Autumn equinox on September 22nd which officially marks the end of summer and the beginning of our earth Mama's preparation for winter's rejuvenating intermission. It's a time to refill the well, rest and germinate plans for the next season of growth!....If you have followed my artist journey, I am currently germinating some change myself, taking a deep dive into ceramics. My dream is to work on a larger scale than jewelry offers in the future; still creating soul-infused, talismanic work but on a larger scale. I don't know where this next leg of the journey will take me, but I have always seen growth in this life to be the spark that keeps things interesting!
On the note of preparing for winter, I am not yet ready to offer you my ceramic works ( coming very soon!) but am thrilled to offer you a recipe to make your very own elderberry tincture! So easy, but so expensive in stores....I hope you will give it a try! Easy peasy, and so great for immunity!
1/2 cup dried organic elderberries ( easily found online if you dont have a source!)
1 cinnamon stick, 5 cloves, 1T grated ginger
2 cups water + 1 cup honey
combine all ingredients except honey, band bring to a boil.
reduce heat to a simmer, and cook down till liquid is down to 1 cup
strain, pulling out elderberries and spices ....add honey
bottle and keep in refridgerator
here's to your health!
be well, and please keep in touch I would love to hear from you!
sending so much love,
