I am a Sagittarius sun, Libra rising and aquarius moon! I think that’s a pretty cute chart.
What’s your favorite part about working in natural health?
My favorite thing about working in the natural health field is that I get to be around herbs! Herbs are a form of resistance- they are accessible, affordable, and they allow us to reclaim our health outside the constructs of harmful systems.
What’s your favorite herbal preparation?
The herbs I take change with the season, day, my mood- but my go to herb mix this week is making an infusion of oat buds, oat straw, rose petals, and a ton of lemon balm! The change of season calls for a nice mood uplifter!
What’s your kryptonite?
