A day’s work: that full moon in Gemini gave me three sleepless nights and a jello brain that couldn’t do any work other than make medicine.
Powdering cedar (Thuja plicata) for an infused oil that’s destined for salve-making. Ditto for comfrey (Symphytum officinale) and fireweed (Epilobium/Chamenaerion angustifolium). Family photo featuring comfrey, cedar, and burdock (Arctium lappa) infused oils.
Sourcing notes: cedar harvested from deadfall on Nlaka’pamuk and Okanagan territory (y’all know I don’t wildcraft live plants but when I come across this beautiful medicine after it’s been blown down by weather or cut by trail maintenance, you can be sure I don’t let it go to waste); fireweed, comfrey and burdock from two of my gardens, on Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe and Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh territories, respectively.
