My Four Favorite Weeds--Demand Thriving, Share your Medicine
My favorite weeds are Lady's Thumb, Blackberry, Hawthorn and Wild Rose (not exactly thought of as a weed but, it grows with such vigor and thorniness maybe it should have that honor). These herbs are wonderful for enjoying life even through hardship. Weeds are amazing examples of undiscovered medicine and robust life. If you have been treated like a weed you might want to share your hard earned medicine and give yourself some recognition for thriving in spite of it all.   Find on the Site:  Wildcrafted Lady's Thumb tincture Blackberry in Sexy Smokes Rose in Sexy Smokes, Take it Easy organic herbal smoking blend, Tulsi and Rose tea (no longer available in 2024), Blood and Boundaries bath, wild rose in Color Wheel flower and gem essence, and Hawthorn in Humanity tea.

This video has herbal information/strategies for vaginal yeast infections, candida, thrush, and diaper rash. I discuss four herbs for yeast: Ladies mantle, monarda fistulosa (bee balm; I don't like to use monarda didyma), calendula, yarrow. I also discuss ways to use marshmallow root for easing acute pain from yeast and healing sores. If you find that you have chronic yeast that is only going away temporarily I advise you work with a healthcare provider to get to the bottom of the imbalance. I am available for for one on one herbal consultations. If you are interested please contact me directly. -Arati
