It is all sorts of purple @ MoonMaid!! I have been enjoying Spring more this year then I can imagine. Have some Dandelion Wine brewing, some violet leaf oil infusing and nettle leaf vinegar and tonic stewing as well. So much is blooming, growing, sprouting and ready to use. I'll be harvesting wood nettle leaves this week to dry for nourishing tea. I love a pot of nettle tea at night. I can feel my body say Ahhhh!!
I am ever amazed at what I find growing in my woodland garden paradise. Goldenseal, black and blue cohosh, mayapple, trillium, ginseng, nettles, wild lettuce, violets and the list goes on and on. I am honored to live here. Grateful to have so mush growing around me!!!

Just a dusting of snow last week and then Spring spurng forth.
This week will be full of podcasts, delivering orders and making lots of VitalVulva...which will soon be called Vital V. Seems I need to make a name change. All the women who love it will know what it is, what it does and where it goes. :) No matter the name!!! As herbal products become increasingly popular, we have to adapt to the regulations present in our FDA system. Though I wouldn't say I am happy, I will comply. Listen later today to MoonMaid's Menopause Moment here The show is live @ 6:30 PM Eastern.
I will also be cohosting Big Blend Radio's show with mother and daughter team, Lisa and Nancy @ 7:00 PM Eastern. The topic is Style and Wellness for Women. These gals are great and it will be a good time. Hope you can listen here Until next time, I hope you enjoy these photos. I especially love the water shot......all that you see is a reflection. Beautiful!!! I am blessed to live here in the Great Smoky Mountains. Have a great week!!!!

We have been busy here @ MoonMaid Botanicals. I just returned from the Florida Herbal Conference where I learned a lot from several teachers. I really connected with Phyllis Light, and herbalist from Alabama. She teaches the folk ways of Appalachia. I think I will be learning a lot more from her in the future. When I was down South, I thought I'd warm up a bit but it was in the 30's. Cold for camping at the conference, even for me!!!
When I was visiting family in Lakeland I picked up a few goodies for the garden.
There are also lots of beauties popping up in the garden; daffodils, crocus, chickweed and dandelions coming up everywhere!!
Especially exciting this week, tomorrow in fact, is my BlogTalk Internet Radio Show with Leslie Howard, yoga instructor, who is an expert on the health of the Female Pelvis. It is amazing how many problems women have with the pelvic region. Dryness is the number one complaint I hear of from my customers. There is also an unbelieveable amount of hysterectomies, prolapsed uterus, vulvadynia, vagimismus and much more. Leslie will give us some ideas to increase our awareness as well as providing us with breathing and yoga techniques to help create a happy and healthy pelvis. Listen here or call in with your questions to 646.200.0217. I hope you have a beautiful week as we transition into March and the beginning of Spring!!!

The day for my blog posting. This week has been busy with the "starting" of lots of projects here @ MoonMaid. Been making lots of VitalVulva and getting a stream of calls about dryness, vulvadynia, vaginosis, atrophy, soreness and on and on. I definitely hear far more about this problem then any other. Because I get so many calls about the same things over and over, I decided to start a weekly podcast on one "issue." It's a brief 15 program. You can listen live and call in or listen later.
|VitalVulva Wild Yam Salve|
This weeks topic on Menopause Moment with MoonMaid Botanicals will be vaginal dryness and related issues. You can listen @ 7 PM ET @ this link live or later at your convenience.
|Comfrey in Bloom|
This is the herb that gives VitalVulva the lovely green color
