The Sun is Shining!!!

We have been in deep rain here in the South.  No sun, windy rainy days.  It was getting a little bit depressing!!  Now it is very sunny, you can see the lovely fall colors.......and it gets me in the mood for Halloween lights, hats.....and a bit of candy.  I don't eat much chocolate as a general rule, but as I have entered #menopause, I find it far more enticing then I use to!

My Ebook - The Art of Simpling - is flying out the door.  This is the last month I will be giving it away.  It is a great little tutorial on how to make herbal goodies of all kinds....from powders to creams.  Check it out and send me an email if you would like to have one.

Last month I began offering Herbal Consultations for my customers who need a bit more then just a phone call for their menopause symptoms.  This is a 45 - 60 minute consultation that includes the remedies I suggest.  The regular fee is $90.00.  Through the rest of 2014 I am offering it @ 50% off.  That's right!!  A consultation and remedies for $45.00  Check it out here

I have been doing some incredible podcasts too!!!  Just did one with Dr. Serena McKenzie of the Institute for Healthy Sexuality.  Last month I interviewed Dr. Tirso del Junco about hysterectomies.  Coming up in a couple of weeks, Shea Vaughn, an expert on keeping ones body and mind healthy as we age.  Check out these shows and get information about upcoming shows here.  

Until next time, I wish you herbal blessings from MoonMaid Botanicals.

October Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Breast Health Awareness Month around here.  My friend and peer Daya Fisch, of the Breast Health Project taught me to think that way.  She and I did a great broadcast on just that topic.  She is incredible.  Here are links to her on YouTube and a link to the Women of A Certain Age and.......BreastHealth.

We are giving free BreastBalms with your orders in October to.  Put "BB" in the "COMMENT" box at checkout.

BreastBalm's main ingredient is Poke Root.  It is a valuable herb with incredibly potent lymphatic cleansing abilities.  It helps to break up congestion in the body and will move it out.  It can be very toxic when consumed so please consult your favorite herbalist when using this herb.  As a salve, it is also effective in relieving swelling and cystic areas.  A great emollient for breast massage.  You are doing that.....right?  Daya talks about it here.   Watch and learn to love your breasts!!!
