First off, I hope you all are well. We are hanging in there. Virtual school definitely should come with training wheels and instant internet but we are managing.
Second, how in the heck is it already October??? I feel like the last 6 months have disappeared in the blink of an eye and lasted forever at the same time. Time is not playing fair and the analogy that we are all living in Groundhog Day still holds up.
This post is to reach out and let you all know about some things I’ve been working on, a few reminders and some things to look forward to in the next few months.
So it looks like I will continuing to keep all consults as phone or Facetime for the indefinite future. I miss seeing people and more importantly hugging my clients and talking over tea but it doesn’t fit into the world right now. For this reason, I’ve let the office space I moved into back in March go. Even though I never saw a client there, since the pandemic hit the week of moving, I miss it already. I miss the dreams I created as I moved into the space and I miss the person who was to be my roomie. I do have faith that there will lots more beginnings to come. Hopefully you will be along for the adventure!
Orders are still available to pick up from the Apothecary in Powell or to ship. I’ve always done free shipping on orders over 100.00 but I’m not sure if all of you know that because I don’t know how to make that show up on the website! SO now you know!!
I’ve spent the last few months taking various online courses ranging from the power of Mushrooms to ethnobotany and of course more than I can count on COVID. Some days I feel like I’m overloading but I firmly believe in the power of knowledge, sooooo I will also be taking another herbal conference but this one is packed with classes so I won’t be filling orders from October 13th through October 22nd. Please have orders in by Oct 9th so they can be mailed out on the 12th. I’m very excited about this conference and will be taking courses on SIBO, the power of Plagues, menopause and Hashimoto’s just to name a few. I’ll either be gushing or my brain will be mush on the 23rd so please go easy on me.
Finally some really fun things, I’ve been creating are teas! Since the kids are home, they’ve been helping me as taste testers so I’ve had a quicker turn around.I’ve introduced “Some Fig N Mint Tea”, “Jardin” , “Vit C Fruit Punch” and “Witches Brew” and I’m working on 2 more. Teas are such an easy way to get more herbs into your life and I try very hard to make are that they are all tasty. I’m always posting the newbies on the FB page so please follow it if interested and here is a link to check them out on the website. http://www.theempiricalherbalist.com/herbal-teas.html
Also, letting you know that I have some great gift packages coming on the website in November. I’ll be making tea boxes, some smudging kits and few more ideas keep popping mi my head. I’m hoping to help make the Holy Days full of herbal goodness.
Wife, Mom, herbalist and friend. Feel free to change the order of the description to fit your needs, I do several times a day.
