With its special affinity for women, motherwort means “herb for the mother” while its botanical name LEONURUS CARDIACA can be translated to “heart of the lion”. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
Motherwort is an excellent tonic for the uterus, heart, and entire nervous system. It restores emotional ease when tension has been lingering...soothing the nervous system while strengthening it. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
Energetically, Motherwort is an herb of protection. She brings gifts of inner growth, trust in the self, and strength to be who you are. Encourages strong emotional health. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
With her bitter bitter taste, Motherwort can be tough to drink as an infusion or take as a tincture (though both methods are incredibly effective). While I sip on my tea/infusion, I’m also eating an herbal snack (swipe right) that contains Motherwort, dates, nuts, bee pollen, & roses. This is an excellent way to administer herbs when the taste isn’t super palatable.
RECIPE🌸In a food processor: handful of nuts, handful of dried fruit, cup of nut butter, cup of dried or powdered herbs, & a little honey. Blend well, roll into balls, and top with bee pollen, roses, etc! 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
Speaking of heart of the lion, do yaselves a favor and follow @lionhearted_herbals ! Taylor posts some awesome recipes, inspiring plant content, and great educational info.🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿

Yes. This is a real plant! Banksias are evergreen shrubs that grow in tropical forests. The leaves absolutely blow my mind...it looks like someone cut them with zigzag scrapbooking scissors or something. And the flower has over 1,000 individual flowers growing from the big bulb!✨
As a flower essence, Banksia is an excellent ally for brushing away the debris of painful past experiences. It’s therapeutic actions help us to let go of past hurt and to find a new future filled with trust. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
On a physical level, it helps soothe localized pain and keeps the body relaxed...especially when we tense up in an attempt to protect ourselves. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
By releasing this stale tension that keeps the body and mind from moving forward, Banksia gives us courage to move toward our future feeling free. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
While there are many ways to free our bodies from tension and to allow our minds to feel free (ie yoga, dancing, singing, being around great people, playing outside, etc) flower essences come in handy when it feels as though we’ve tried everything on our own, and we just need a little help. They are quite literally the key to open the channels in our bodies that need unlocked. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
What are your experiences with flower essences? What plants speak to you/blow your mind? 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿

Thank you to @oldforestfarm for the special gift💓
Just found an application letter I wrote when I first started Flō! All of these goals still stand true today💓💓💓 Now I realize that when working with essential oils I was just tapping into a high vibration of concentrated plant medicine. A lot has changed since the beginning, but the spirit of Flō is exactly the same✨🌿💓
WHY SHOP SMALL?
While it might seem like I do 👆this👆all day, the reality is a little different... Owning your own business means you’re the website creator and update-er🖥, the communications person (email/phone/social media/etc)📱, the accountant🗓, the educator🍎, the product inventor and maker🧬, the marketing specialist💻, the supply chain director⚖️, the wholesale provider📦, the label designer🖌, the delivery driver🚛, the head of HR🗂, the schedule manager📆, the workshop writer & presenter📝, the tax manager📈, and the CEO💃. I wouldn’t want it any other way. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
When you support a small business, you’re not just paying for the materials that went into the product you’re buying. You’re directly supporting the labor, the love, and the deep passion that’s poured into the product or service you receive. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿 I know my fellow female business owners feel me on this...tag your favorite small-business and take a moment to support one today, whether it’s by acknowledging all that they do, giving them a shoutout, or voting for them with your dollar! We’re in this together y’all 💓
It would only let me tag 20 so keep the tags rollin in!

“Disease is in essence the result of conflict between soul and mind.”
Take a moment to remember what your soul is actually like. Not what your mind tells it to be, not what anyone expects it to be...what words come to mind when you really tap into the shiniest part of ✨your soul✨?

Guess what’s back y’all! The Slumberland Tincture✨ Newly updated with California Poppy!
California poppy encourages us to sink into the lush blackness of the night. While promoting ease, she allows us to fall deeply into our deepest sleep, often encouraging our dreams to slow down. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
Hops have long been used as a mild sedative, encouraging the nervous system to relax and soften. Rich in phytoestrogens, hops promote a state of balance within the pineal gland, which regulates our circadian rhythms.
Valerian is a powerful nervine, alleviating pain and promoting deep relaxing sleep. Also widely used as a sedative/tranquilizer, and does not cause morning grogginess. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
After about 3-4 weeks worth of daily use (may be less for some) , these herbs will allow the body to assimilate into its own sustainable sleeping rhythm. Plants are in complete biochemical harmony with our bodies, allowing our cellular structure to be restored by their healing properties. They don’t just mask the symptoms, they treat the root of the imbalance.
What do you do to slip into your deepest slumber? 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
