Wild woman,
Rise.
You are worthy of dancing your true dance,
and deserving to receive yourself here.
Go ahead and grow and do what you need to to.. and I’ll always be here,
dancing for you.

All these old adobe buildings feel very grounding to me, since they’re hard and made of Earth. There’s so much beauty and old magick in this place. I feel it and admire it. 🌶✨🌵| #santafe #santafemagic #desertmagic #desertmedicine #adobe #grounding #centering #clay

In order to raise money for @global.response I will be running 1km in body armour out here in Mogadishu for ever £5 donated via my Facebook fundraiser. If you want to donate either do so via my FB fundraiser or simply visit Global Response Management and donate direct to them. They really are an amazing organisation trying to bring world class trauma care to civilians injured on the frontline. Help us get to Yemen to continue making a difference. #conflict #medicine #war #nurse #trauma #yemen #extrememedicine #frontline #fitfam #getoutside #adventure #battleworn #run #fundraiser #nopainnogain #desertmedicine #run #trailrunning #pushyourself #fitness #training

Thankyou @exilemedics and all of the team that were involved in organising such a brilliant weekend.
My first introduction to managing patients in remote, extreme environments with limited resources; and the start of my wilderness medicine journey.

04/31 Creosote
The minimalist Halloween costume--a floral crown with tiny yellow flowers and tiny green leaves.
Caution to anyone who would actually attempt this: creosote is quite sticky and it's probably not the best choice for a floral crown. But this native desert plant is one of my favorites. I have harvested it a few times to use medicinally (topically) and it smells so fresh!

Spent the last few days getting some desert medicine with @klipcollective in Arizona 🌵Still in awe of the majestic landscapes and native flora (aka some of my favorite plants in this universe). Grateful for the experience and time spent away from my gloomy trash city to listen, think, and process within 🏜 #sedona #desertmedicine #redrock

Larrea tridentata.

Also known as Greasewood, Creosote Bush, Chaparral.

Ancient medicine; living plants of this species have been determined to be over 11,000 years old.
The warm, strong and sweet scent is analogous with the comforting smell of Desert rain.
To me: the best part of living in a Desert where this being makes its home -- the Mojave, Chihuahua and Sonoran.

Where Gobernadora -- the governess -- grows, I am safe, protected by her strong and ever-loving arms.
With a myriad of beneficial attributes, she is a great warder of illness, infection, and pain, and a builder of immunity, blood and fortitude.

When we first met, I was taught to offer my deepest respects and gratitude to this Nurse plant who shelters and nourishes so many. When her leaves are waxy, lush and deep green, and the Moon is full, I gather a small amount of leaves from different plants, singing songs of healing and thanksgiving, asking for her guidance, grace and fortitude.

Bless the desert rains ~ the promise of life ✨ Even when great tropical storms might destroy, their is always a silver lining as the cottonwoods & saguaros drink deeply. #fullspiral #desertmedicine

The Earth teaches us how to be in our bodies.
___

It awakens our senses. The cold fresh water, the rocks warmed by the sun. The sound bath of the cicadas buzzing. The faint taste of sacred red earth on the wind. Our bodies naturally relax when we connect with the Earth because our bodies are made from the Earth, this spinning blue green planet hurtling through space. To be open to the natural beauty all around us is to be at home in our bodies. To bring home here.

If you can’t bear to talk anymore. If you feel no one in your life can hold space for your rage and grief. The Earth can hold it. Find a forest, a lake, a desert, a mountain. Run down the path until you’re out of breath and have to lie down in her arms. Throw heavy rocks. Smash sticks. Scream like the wounded animal you are. And feel how she holds you no matter how hard you push, how she can take all you need to give. It will be composted, and changed. It will be fuel and fertilizer. Love you.

Because sometimes when nothing else makes sense, we just need to gather a handful of kindred spirits, escape to the ranch, throw up our arms, and submit all our woes & worries to the wind. #jenkstars #damnitfeelsgoodtobeajenkstar #desertmedicine #utah

This remarkable gift of medicine was waiting for me when I arrived home last night. So incredibly grateful for such thoughtful powerful medicine from @noddingthistleandrosemilk !!! These are Incrdible formulations just for me, and the Inclusion of an Aphrodite elixir with Damiana just about floored me because damiana is an old friend and this is a very similar formula that I used to make, and it’s been a while since I have made it or hung with damiana so I can definitely use their energy in my life. Super grateful for pain linament and salve as well as I can’t tell you how much of that I go through! And this tincture with essences formulated just for me is absolutely perfect, as are the saguaro cactus fruit! Really loving all this desert medicine, I miss the desert plants in Texas and looking forward to reconnecting with some of that energy. Super grateful for my herbal community and feeling loved! 💜💜💜💜 #herbalgifts #herbalmedicine #desertmedicine #saguaro #saguaromedicine #grateful #herbalist #herbalistsarethebest
