Mullein Harvest

The mullein on our property is looking lush! So lush that it felt the right time to harvest the leaves to dry for future tea blends. This herb is great for respiratory disorders used to treat asthma, bronchitis, dry coughs, congestion & sore throats. This beautiful leafy plant is also antiseptic, antiviral, good for heart health and your hair! 😉

Mama Natural

If you’re in search of a week by week guide for pregnancy and childbirth, I would highly recommend this book by Mama Natural / Genevieve Howland. I have found this book to be super helpful & insightful along with her witty sense of humor has made this a fun read as well and informative.

A good friend of mine recommended this book for me as well as went ahead and purchased it as a maternity present for me which I am super thankful for and feel spoiled ❤

That being said, this would make a fabulous pregnancy gift for any expecting mama’s out there!
(this is not sponsored in anyway) but it just so happens that the book is actually on sale right now on amazon:
