How to hang dry herbs!
Tumblr media
Start your at home Apothecary now!
Herbs should be picked on season of course so do your research on whwn your herbs are ready! Or do as I do and just watch them.
Now you can do this before or after the flowers develop depending on the flavor you want from your herbs.
They should be harvested on warm, dry mornings after the dew has completely evaporated but it's always best to still dab them down just in case!
 you’ll need to discard any damaged leaves or stems.
Check for bugs and dirt!
 hang drying herbs is super easy!
tie sprigs or branches into small bunches! We do small because large, dense bunches can develop mold and discolored leaves!
Hang the bunches up to dry, leaves downward, wrapped loosely in muslin or thin paper bags to keep out dust and to catch falling leaves or seeds.
Avoid using plastic bags because of mold development from the moisture!
Allow seven to ten days to dry, depending on the size of the branches and humidity.
If the leaves sound like crisp cornflakes when crushed, they’re good to go!

Saffron sourdough with a hunt of turmeric and a cornmeal-sunflower seed crust. Still not getting the lift I want from my wild yeasts but it's a learning process 🍞🥖 the saffron flavor came through beautifully though

I'm not being paid to promote this haha, but I have to share my adoration of Sam Guay's Blood Moon Tarot! It consists of a full set of 78 standard-sized tarot cards, with original watercolor art on each one. The minor arcana consists of Dreams, Songs, Skins, and Honey!
You can learn more about it here:
It's currently available to order from a few independent shops in MA!

What I Burn When I Need Help
Burning herbs can be more than just cleansing. It can help banish, invoke, encourage, invite, and much more. A lot of times, when I feel like I'm struggling with a specific issue (with myself or with what is around me), I find myself drawn to burning single herbs to help me get back into the headspace I need to be.
Cinnamon: When I feel like I'm falling behind in my shadow work, I burn a bit of a stick of cinnamon to help encourage healing and mindfulness.
Dried Apple Peel: Apples are symbols of friendship and love. When I feel particularly down on myself or lonely, burning apple peels can help invoke an increased sense of patience towards myself.
Pine Needles: Burning pine needles welcomes new beginnings and fresh starts. Super helpful for things like breakups, graduation, and repelling negativity.
Rice: A bit tricky to burn! I tend to hold two or three in tweezers ad just roast the ends for a moment or two and waft that little bit of smoke around my space. Burnt rice invites financial gain, and protects you from negative energies.
Rose Petals: Rose petals invoke soft, genuine feelings of love and appreciation.
Rose Thorns: On the other hand, burning rose thorns protects you from people who have terms for their love, and protects you from people who lie about their affections for you.
Rosemary: This herb encourages good health, and is helpful in strengthening memory when burnt. It's also effective as a shower/bath additive!
Tangerine Peel: I use tangerine peels because that's what I have, but orange peels work the same! Burning these citrus peels invites more energy into your space, and can be great for sleepy mornings and early morning college classes.
As always, practice in a cleansed environment and do your research! There are many, many things that can be burnt for great effects. Blessed Be! <3
