MoonMaid Botanicals Blog, News, Specials and General Goings On!!

It is a beautiful snowy morning here @ MoonMaid Botanicals Plant Sanctuary.  It was a peaceful snowy evening, soft lovely flakes falling all night.  I awoke to a magical white paradise.  I am always amazed at how the snow lays on the trees, the garden ornaments, and the bones of the plants of last years garden.  

Went for a long walk in the woods with Nissan, my young dog.  He loves the snow and all of the sticks that fall from the trees.  There is no stick to large for this little guy.  He is a hoot and always makes my walks a bit more enjoyable then they already are!!  There is never a shortage of mischief for him to get in to.  Delilah the old gal - she sleeps and waits, in any convenient spot.

As it is cold and I don't want to get one - I keep up with my infusions.  This morning it was a conbination of nettles and oats.  Extremely nourishing, full of minerals and calcium.  Good for a healthy strong body, bones and mind!!!   Until next time - I wish you good health - Cynthia @

How do you make your infusions? And why did you choose oats & nettle for keeping a cold away?

I use these herbs as they are full of minerals and calcium - critical for good health. To make an infusion, place a cup or so of herb in the jar, cover with hot water, let steep for at least 20 minutes. I will work up a pictorial about this and post tomorrow on my Facebook page.

Interesting, sounds almost like a tea. I look forward to reading more tomorrow.
