Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria), also known as queen of the meadow, is a beautiful perennial herb from the Rosaceae family, related to roses and strawberries.

Its lush foliage and delicate clusters of creamy white flowers grace the damp meadows and riverbanks across Europe and Asia.

Its traditional name, 'meadowsweet,' captures the sweet, almond-like fragrance of its flowers, which were historically strewn across floors to freshen up homes.

From soothing stomach aches to relieving pain, meadowsweet has been a cherished medicinal herb for centuries, often referred to as nature's aspirin for its salicylic acid content, a compound that would later inspire the creation of modern-day aspirin.

07/13/2023

Cleavers (Galium aparine), often known as sticky w***y or goosegrass, is a common annual herb found crawling through the hedgerows and woodlands of North America, Europe, and Asia. It's part of the Rubiaceae family, related to coffee and gardenia plants.

The name 'Cleavers' hints at the plant's ability to 'cleave' or stick onto almost anything it comes into contact with, thanks to the tiny hooked hairs that cover its stems and leaves. This humble herb is a traditional spring tonic known for its cleansing properties, particularly for the lymphatic system.

Goldenrod is part of the aster family alongside daisy and sunflower.

Originating from North America, Europe, and parts of Asia, this perennial flourishes in open areas, presenting tall stems adorned with dense clusters of tiny, vibrant yellow flowers.

Solidago, meaning 'to make whole', alludes to its history in folk medicine, where it was sought for wound healing and soothing seasonal allergies.

Nettle is a cousin to plants like h**p and hop. Its scientific name, Urtica dioica, hints at its stinging nature - 'Urtica' meaning 'to burn.' It sprouts in the wilds of Europe, Asia, and North America, identified by serrated leaves on sturdy stalks and clusters of minute, greenish flowers.

Nettle is a medicinal powerhouse used in traditional remedies to treat many ailments. It also brews a tasty tea!

06/21/2023

Yarrow, an herbaceous perennial, is a healing herb from the aster family. It's related to coneflower, tarragon, tansy, and zinnia. They grow wild in North America, Europe, and Asia on lanky stalks that support a crown of tiny, ornamental flowers.

Its scientific name - Achillea millefolium - comes from the legend of the Greek hero Achilles, who was said to use yarrow during battle to soothe his soldier's wounds.

While yarrow is safe for most people, some people can have allergies to flowers from the Aster family. Always do a swatch test on your wrist or sample in small quantities.

Additionally, be aware that the flat-topped “corymb” of the yarrow closely resembles the flower head or “umbel” of two poisonous plants– poisonous hemlock (Conium maculatum) and water hemlock (Cicuta sp.). If you’re planning to forage yarrow, be 100% sure of your identification before you use it.

Well, technically it’s still Spring, but here’s our schedule for the next few months. We’ll be closed this Sunday, 5/14, then every Monday starting 5/15 probably until August. Things slow down here a lot when it gets hot so we decided to cut a day to focus on other (exciting!) projects.

All the other days, we’ll be here from 11-6, now 5 days a week. You can also order online any day & we’ll get it shipped out on the next day that we’re open.

Please look at this list of amazing products and support this business!!
This is so important. It’s seems like the world and especially the US is trying to forget about this illness that is still wrecking havoc on individuals and communities everywhere. I am absolutely convinced that the inflammation caused by long covid is the next big health crisis.

If you need any of the herbs mentioned below, you can get them from an INDIGENOUS OWNED herb shop: Miss Anne's Maypop Herb Shop which is owned and operated by the amazing Sicangu Herbalist Anne White Hat.

Hi friends!

Thank you everyone for all of your prayers and kindnesses. We are doing really well. I am feeling about 100% and my husband is at about 98% … with only a slightly runny nose. We’ve been getting lots of messages asking about what we’ve been doing to stay healthy and how we … a chubby family with underlying lung conditions … have been recovering from this virus so quickly, without any breathing issues.

I tested positive on Tuesday after experiencing a slightly sore throat. On Wednesday I experienced some muscle soreness and a little stuffiness, and on Thursday, I slept most of the day. When I woke up on Friday, I was basically all better. My worst symptom was the sore throat.

My husband tested positive on Thursday evening (after a negative test that very morning!). He has a slight headache that day, and on Friday he slept most of the day, had the chills, and developed a running nose. Today, he is basically all better.

Most of our friends who had breakthrough infections were fully sick for at least three days, with some being sick for three weeks. Some of them are the healthiest people we know, so this virus is completely unpredictable … so the following info is just to tell you all about our experience and what helped us. I also believe that following these protocols is what kept us healthy for so long.

* First of all, we have been praying, laughing, and singing every day. We honored the spiritual advice of friends and elders and people we trust.

* Next, Ahán Heȟáka Sápa and I really feel that our daily regimen of Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Zinc, and NAC powder has really helped us, but we also really believe that our happy gut microbiome and focus on healthy, traditional, Indigenous foods and fermented foods has also played a key factor.

* We have been eating medicine foods every day and avoiding excess refine sugar, refined flour, and dairy.

* We have been taking Andrographis tincture (recommended by Lata Chettri-Kennedy of Flower Power Herbs and Roots, Inc. in NYC) and Artemisia annuua tincture twice a day, and we’ve been using our elderberry elixir and fire cider every day (wopila Anne White Hat Maypop Community Herb Shop!)

* We have been drinking various teas, but lots of grindelia, echinacea, yarrow, elderflower, and lemon balm (and other types of mint). And we’ve been adding some of our infused bear root honey and mushroom honey, and when our throats are sore, we chew on candied bear root (thank you Artemisia_Herbs!).

* We’ve had a constant herbal steam going on the stove … always with cedar, and sometimes with a combination of California bay, lavender, orange peels, beebalm, rosemary, and other fragrant antimicrobial herbs.

* The temperatures here have been subzero, but we have been making sure to run up and down the steps, run in place, lift weights, do squats… everything to get our heart rate up every day.

One important thing we have learned is that this virus is nothing to mess with. We could literally feel it trying to creep in to our lungs. How many of you have experienced this? It starts off as a sort of tingling feeling and then it starts to burn. If this happens to you, make sure to immediately start your herbal steams and your lung support teas and tinctures. Also make sure to consciously practice deep breathing at least twice an hour.

Finally, we want you all to know that we send out love and prayers and strength to all of you. We hope and pray you’ll all stay healthy and if you slip up and bring this virus home … like we did.. then we hope you’ll all be strong and recover quickly.

God is so awesome, y'all, thousands of families have benefitted from these humble little elderberries since 2016. Happy to still be of service 6 years later. Some NOLA area places to shop Laughing Buddha Nursery, Maypop Community Herb Shop, Rosalie Botanicals, Whole Foods Market, Darling Pharmacy, Langenstein's River Ridge. Get well soon 😘
I’ve been helping a friend of mine on her path to recovery from opioid abuse. She was in active addiction for almost 10 years, and even though she has tried so hard to go to treatment and stay clean, it’s been a huge challenge.

Her primary triggers are stress and anxiety. Anytime she felt overwhelmed, she would start using. She tried utilizing all the synthetic opioids and going to both in and outpatient treatment programs, but once she got out, she would almost always start using within a week or so. The longest she stayed clean was about 4 months.

A year ago, I gave my friend a tea blend and asked her to use it consistently every single day. She also started going to ceremonies and praying as part of her daily life. And … she stopped eating refined sugar. She won’t even eat things like bread or spaghetti sauce if they have sugar in them.

She has been clean ever since.

I’ve been giving people some version of this tea ever since my brother first got clean about seven years ago, but I feel like I have since perfected the recipe to be calming, soothing, and detoxifying. I’ve been told that this blend also helps to reduce cravings. I’m not saying that this tea blend is a miracle cure for people experiencing addiction, but I do think it’s another helpful tool… so I wanted to share it with you all.

2 parts passionflower
1 part blue vervain
1 part tulsi
1/2 part linden flower

Mix these herbs together and store in a tightly sealed jar. To make the tea, add 2 teaspoons of the blend to 2 cups of very hot water and allow to infuse for 10 minutes. Drink twice per day, morning and night.

If you have herbs or blends that you use to help our relatives who are trying to find sobriety, please post them in the comments below!

Guys … what’s going on? I have made medicine kits for about 50 people in the past week, but suddenly tonight I got 16 requests for kits in the last TWO HOURS!?

I’m doing what I can and struggling with everyone else. I got a message from Jen Jewett down on Standing Rock and she is seeing a similar spike today. We are overwhelmed but moving forward.

If you have any elderberry elixir, fire cider, vitamins D3, C, and Zinc, bone broth, or raw honey to spare, please, please PM me for an address.

If you want to donate funds, you can PayPal [email protected] or Venmo . (I’ll make sure to pay my maské Anne White Hat with Maypop Community Herb Shop, because I know she is sending medicines and I really want to pay her what I can.)

Thank you for any help! Please share this is you want to!

Well, as you can see, I’ve been posting about medicine all day. It’s absolutely critical that we boost our immune systems and stay healthy. Although many, many of our friends and relatives have died of covid, the actual infection isn’t nearly as scary as the long term impacts on people’s health. “Mild illness” is such a misnomer! (Read Rupa’s post from earlier today.) Covid impacts numerous organs and systems…. I’m treating someone who has developed severe depression since their “recovery” from a bout of covid TWO YEARS AGO!

So here’s something I’ve shared a few times before. It’s long because it includes recipes. If you can’t make these medicines yourself, I’ve included a list of Indigenous producers at the bottom of this post!

Whether you are getting medicine together for friends, family, acquaintances, or strangers ... remember that you don’t have to over-complicate things. Healing is for everyone! Keep it simple. Make sure that prayer is part of everything you get together.

MEDICINE KITS:
If you want to make your own medicine kits, here are a few things you can include (at various levels of difficulty in acquisition). I’ve included recipes and lists of herbs....

❤️ Simple store bought kit:

Vitamin D3
Vitamin C
Zinc
Green Tea
Melatonin
Baby aspirin

❤️ More advanced kit:

***Elderberry elixir (here’s a recipe:)
1c elderberries
3c water
2 star anise
1 cinnamon stick
2 whole cloves
1 3” piece fresh ginger
Bring all of this to a boil and then let it simmer for about 45 min on medium. Once it it nice and dark and strong, pour it through some cheese cloth or any material to strain it, squeezing all the juice out. Add 1 1/2 cups of raw honey ...let the honey melt in to the juice...don’t reheat it or you’ll destroy all the good medicine in the honey. Store in jars in the fridge.

***Fire cider (here’s a recipe):
To a pint jar add:
1TB black peppercorns
1/2 an onion
1/2 bulb of garlic
1 thumb ginger
1 thumb turmeric
1 thumb horseradish
1 fresh jalapeño
2 dried Thai chilies
1/2 fresh lemon with skins on
Pour in enough raw apple cider vinegar to fill the jar, close it up, and let it sit is a cool, dark spot for at least two weeks. (I’ve let it sit for two years). Strain it and add raw honey to taste.

***Anti-inflammatory tea blend (choose from): nettles, willow bark, turmeric, garlic, onion, chilies, ginger, devils claw, rosemary, oregano, thyme, green tea, pine needles, cloves, cinnamon ... mushrooms including reishi, turkey tail, and chaga

***Lung support tea blend: mullein, elecampane, wild cherry bark, narrowleaf plantain, licorice root, goldenseal, mint, bear root (osha), lovage, astragalus, curlycup gumweed (grindelia), or NAC powder

***Immune support tea blend: rose hips, elderberry, elderflower, dandelion, echinacea, burdock root, andrographis, ashwaganda, monarda, tulsi

***Blood vessel builder tea blend: hawthorn, yarrow, bilberry, blueberry, huckleberry, rose hips

***Anti viral tea blend: elderberry, elderflower, lemon balm, catnip, monarda, wormwood/sweet annie, prunella, rhubarb root

***Depression, Anxiety, and insomnia tea blend: blue vervain, valerian, hops, linden, passionflower, skullcap, milky oats, chamomile, tulsi

***Infused honey: mix raw honey with powdered chaga, bear root, reishi, and/or turkey tail

***Chest balm (here’s a recipe):
2 cup olive oil, sunflower oil, or bear grease
1/4 cup cedar
1/4 cup bear root
1/4 cup bitterroot
1/4 juniper berries
Put all of the above in a crock pot on warm setting for 2-4 hours. Turn off heat and let sit over night. In the morning, strain out the herbs. Reheat the oil and add 2 ounces melted beeswax. (You may also add some essential oils such as eucalyptus, mint, camphor, menthol, cedar, and lovage.) Pour in to jars or tins and let set before covering.

***Medicinal Steams: cedar, mint, eucalyptus, grindelia

❤️ Even more advanced kit:

***Medicine soup or medicine soup kit
Fresh or dried meat, beans, dried corn, wild rice, garlic, onion, chilies, ginger, turmeric, celery, carrot, thyme, rosemary, bay leaf, dried cabbage or kale
***Prepared teas in jars (see above recommendations)
***Simple Sauerkraut:
2 medium heads of fresh cabbage (red, green, it doesn’t matter)
1/4 cup kosher sea salt
Glass jars with tight lids
Chop the cabbage as desired. Cover with the salt and mix in, grinding the salt in to the cabbage with your hand. Stuff as tightly as possible into jars and seal. I keep them on the kitchen counter for a few days to speed up the fermentation process. If you like things with more flavor, add a couple tablespoons of caraway seeds, some chopped jalapeño, a couple of friend red chilies, or some whole garlic cloves.

***Easy Napa cabbage and Daikon Kimchi
2 pounds Napa cabbage cut in to bite size pieces
1/2 pound daikon radish (cut as desired, I like half moons)
1/4 cup sea salt
Salt the cabbage and daikon. The key is to let the salt release most of the water from the vegetables...it might take 2-3 hours. Drain well.
Then mix together:
3 TB garlic minced
2 tsp ginger minced
1/2 cup chopped green onion
2 TB salted shrimp or fish sauce (optional, I do not use this bc I don’t like it) sometimes I’ll add a little soy sauce instead.
3-8 TB kimchi pepper powder, depending on how spicy you want it.
Enough water to make a paste (maybe 3-4 TB)
Mix the above ingredients into a thick, but not dry, paste. Mix it in to the salted cabbage/daikon mixture. Stuff as tightly as possible into clean glass jars. Leave them out to ferment.
