Ever thought about using flower essences? Flower essences support our capacity for emotional resilience, with resilience being the ability to recover or rebound quickly after a setback. 

Since flower essences mainly work on the emotional, mental, and spiritual levels, it makes sense that they could support this strength in us.

Flower essences have been my *secret* to staying sane during a pandemic with a young baby at home and dramatic changes to our day-to-day. 

I've been using these simple, but highly effective, tools for mind-body-health for over 10 yrs. In fact, it was my dadโ€™s medical doctor who introduced me to them. I know, I canโ€™t believe it either ๐Ÿ™ˆ

He probably never expected to inspire such passion or that flower essences would be the key to helping me survive some of the toughest times imaginable during my dadโ€™s heart-breaking battle with early Alzheimerโ€™s Disease.
 
Unfortunately, flower essences are not well known in North America. When I tell people Iโ€™m a Flower Essence Practitioner, they usually give me a puzzled look. 

โ€œA flower what?โ€ 

โ€œAre those the same as essential oils?โ€ 

โ€œWhy doesnโ€™t this smell like flowers?โ€ 

Since I share my love for flower essences at @innerplantwisdom, I thought it would be fun to offer a **FREE** Flower Essences 101 course next week.

Iโ€™ll be answering all your burning questions:

๐ŸŒป What are flower essences?
๐ŸŒบ How do they work?
๐Ÿต How are they made?
๐ŸŒป How do I choose flower essences?
๐ŸŒธ How do I use them? 
๐ŸŒผ Are they safe?
๐ŸŒบ How long do I need to use them?
๐ŸŒฑ And bonus: how to buy & store them

If youโ€™re curious about these tools for mind-body-spirit health, or you just want to know IF flower essences are the same as essential oils, join me at @innerplantwisdom. 

Weโ€™ll start tomorrow!

BOUNTY.

In case you're wondering what a bushel of Thai Basil looks like! ๐Ÿ˜

My Italian mother-in-law asked me if I wanted some basil a week ago. We finally made it to their place... I was expecting a plant or two. So I wasn't equipped with much to bring it home in. From past experience, I should have known it would be a generous offering!

The 12 eggplants she packed in my car should have been my first clue ๐Ÿคช

In the middle of heavy rain, with thunder and lightning... I'm in rubber boots with a rain jacket (that I keep in my car for emergencies) and a borrowed umbrella. My almost 80-year-old MIL is in the same.

We make it out to the field where the basil is. She says she already harvested what she needed, so take what I like. I harvested about 4 feet of the row and figured that was enough.

She says she already harvested what she needed, so take what I like. I harvested about 4 feet of the row and figured that was enough. "What? You don't want any more??" I've learned that that's her version of "mangia mangia"... and you can't really say no to that. So we kept picking basil... and picking and picking... while the rain fell and thunder filled the sky. And so we filled the entire bushel basket AND a reusable bag. And that's how I came to have enough Thai Basil to last me the rest of the century ๐Ÿคฃ Here's what I did with it... Washed, dried and then: ๐ŸŒฑ chopped enough basil in the food processor to fill a few ice cube trays and then topped with water ๐ŸŒฑ chopped enough basil in the food processor to fill a few ice cube trays and then topped with olive oil ๐ŸŒฑ packed full leaves of basil into 4 medium freezer bags, labelled & removed the air ๐ŸŒฑ wrapped 7 large bouquets of Thai Basil, hung them on the laundry rack outside until the rain washed the soil off and now they're drying in my shed. In a week or two, they'll be dry and crumbly and ready for soups, marinades, stews, and all the winter comfort foods. Do you have a favourite basil recipe for me??? Here's one of mine... https://www.ashleighgrange.com/basil-chocolate-chip-ice-cream-dairy-free/
Did you know that we have more bacteria than cells in our bodies? On average, we have about 100 trillion bacteria compared to about 50 to 100 trillion cells! Most of these bacteria are also beneficial (or at least neutral) and help support digestive function and a well functioning immune system. And fermented foods are a great way to get more of them!

A year ago, this is what I was having for #lunch. I was in Arizona for a Flower Essences Practitioner training and eating in my hotel room (truthfully trading the 40+ degree heat for AC!). But even at almost 6 months pregnant, I was still nauseous much of the time and craving ALLLL the sour things. So, fermented veggies to the rescue!
.
.
I pulled this together from @traderjoes and kept the leftovers in my hotel fridge. Lactofermented beets, sauerkraut, guac (best in the southwest!), baked salmon, cucumber, and boiled eggs.
.
.
On top of successfully fulfilling pregnancy cravings, fermented foods seemed to help my morning (all-day) sickness, so I was eating my fair share.
.
.
Even though many of us are stuck/safe at home these days, this is just an example of how we can still eat well at home, at work, or on the go, with minimal effort. And fermented foods are a great way to boost flavour and health at the same time!
