Today I have tried to remain calm and sip my wonderful herbal tea that I got when the store is open. I find keeping myself calm in stressful situations, is the most nourishing thing I can do for myself.

I am taking a lesson from this question, and will be brewing some tea. I will take a few minutes to be calm after my stressful morning!

I took a few minutes before the kids got up to take a shower in the peace and quiet with some lemon eo diffusing in the bathroom. Mommy needed her 15 minutes of alone time! =)

Me nourish myself? I drink a cup of calming tea every evening and focus on what I could have done better as a mother

Fantastic! And you’ve taught me the term “herbalista.” I just blogged about purslane, including a recipe. Enjoy the abundance!
July 26, 2014 at 2:03 pm
I’ll have to try that recipe! Thanks!
July 25, 2014 at 3:03 pm
Wow. I grew up weeding and composting tons of purslane. We NEVER thought to eat it! Here’s a good technique to dry your lovely herbs.
July 26, 2014 at 2:04 pm
Interesting. I don’t actually own a microwave, though! What I do, is place my herbs on an old window screen in the trunk space of my station wagon on a sunny day. Dries them right out!

It’s funny you post this today! Today I have eaten the worst of all this pregnancy (donuts, cough cough). I was beating myself up for it and decided to grab my big ole glass of water and plan for a healthy dinner. I’ve been diagnosed with gestational diabetes (by 1 point) and was surprised by the low meter number when I tested. It was higher than normal but almost within range. I have gained 12 pounds the entire pregnancy and really hoping to keep it steady in these last 7 weeks.

Good information. Lucky me I discovered your website by accident (stumbleupon).
I have book-marked it for later!

Thank you for being positive about one of the most healing herbs around! I get so irritated with the negative press that causes people to shy away from it’s amazing healing properties. I have used comfrey tea internally to overcome the damage done to my female organs from doing chemo years ago and also have used it as a poultice to heal a broken rib in record time (days!) I hope to never be without it! I have been so blessed by it. I don’t even think the wild variety would be dangerous unless one downed a few gallons or so a day, although it is higher in the alkaloids that can build up over time with very heavy use.

You are so welcome! I am a huge proponent of comfrey and have seen it work wonders!
