We harvested, washed, and dried ashwagandha roots.
–Ashwagandha is an adaptogen that helps reduce stress and balance thyroid hormones.
We made infused oils of calendula, plantain, and lavender. We ground up the herbs, added olive oil, and left them in the dehydrator at 100*F over the weekend to gently warm the oils.
–Calendula is anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory. It also helps to stimulate skin regeneration. Plantain soothes mucus membranes and draws out infections, so it’s great for bug bites. Lavendar is also anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory. It is good for sunburns. It is also a relaxant and can help with stress and headaches.
We also harvested some chickweed and violet for Noelle’s sister.
