“In my work as an abortion doula, I have become comfortable sitting with death—holding space for those who choose to ‘give death.’ It is often saturated with the heaviness of grief, but not always. I find there is a specific feeling to the space we occupy together in time: it is the feeling of space becoming liminal. I felt this same sensation settle over me in our workshop as we crouched, witnesses to the being’s life coming to a close. Occupying liminal space—the in-between places in time—is very potent, I think. I believe it is during these times we are most able to hear the messages of our ancestors, and of plants. And when queer, magical AF folks gather and occupy & hold this space together, something truly extraordinary happens. I cannot think of another time in my life quite like it. . I observed the way that we all chose to engage or give ourselves space from what was happening: moving forward to use our hands, or easing back to witness. It was a perfect shifting of necessity. . As Tzuria guided us in a bladed dance, tracing lines, helping us separate hide from muscle, fat from fascia, I was struck by something I learned once: our bodies store memory—specifically, trauma is often stored in the fascia (as well as other places). This intelligent sheet of connective tissue keeps us safe, keeps our bodies together, and Remembers. ‘You won’t always be holding this,’ I told my fascia, ‘You won’t hold your trauma like this forever. Someday, it will be gently encouraged out.’ And, I can slowly try to give death to the mechanisms that no longer serve me.” ⚡️Continued in comments⚡️ Bonnie (she/hers) salt_witch . #queernature #nothingstraightaboutnature #queerwildernessproject #weareliminalnotinvisible #outsidewithpride #coloradoqueer #prideoutside #diversifyoutdoors #queersinnature #queersinthewoods #queerherbalist #queerecology #earthskills #deathanddying #queerdoula #natureconnection #earthconnection

Some lilac for our Spring #altar. Though not “medicinal” in the classic sense, fresh flowers offer emotional and spiritual support. 🐝 If you love this aroma, even a few clippings can fill your house with the comforts of these early blooms, (just remember to use a stone or hammer to smash the ends so they will uptake water and survive as cut flowers). My mom used to cultivate lilac - so many memories of seeing them climb to the sky seemingly out of nowhere, with their large flower buds gently knocking against the window in the wind. 🏠 🌸 Nature is so generous and abundant for all of Her creation, why do we interfere so much? 🌳 * * Do you grow #lilac in your garden? Does it bring up childhood memories? 🌞 #flowermedicine #springblooms #queerherbalist #vitalist #intention #createpeace #natureheals #spring #abundance Vase by: @newtohm69 🎨 Painting by: @coyotejohnnie

~**~ black cohosh ~**~ Black Cohosh is a wonderful herb (root), and is especially an ally for those with a uterus or hysterectomy! helpful for endometriosis, menstrual cramps, PMS, and menopausal symptoms. but this herb is not only for balancing the hormonal system/menstrual cycle! black cohosh is also an excellent choice for those with headaches, neuralgia, achy muscles, inflamed joints, and rheumatic pain. It's also been used to help normalize uterine contractions during labor, as well as for after labor pains, but make sure to always work with a certified medical professional before using any herbs during pregnancy/labor. black cohosh relaxes the smooth muscles of the blood vessels, relaxes the uterus and skeletal muscles, and dilates the bronchioles. . . black cohosh has been shown to support the nervous system, which in turn help to reduce nervous irritability and to help those who are struggling with depression.💖 . have you ever used black cohosh before? this herb is such a lovely ally, i'm so glad to be able to share its medicine! . . . ps: hey friends! will you do me a favor and head over to @plantwitchacademy 😊over there is where there are more herbal witchy things being posted and shares information about green witchcraft, herbal medicine, herbal classes/workshops, & moon witchery. lots of fun things are posted there as well as here, and you'll get different pieces of DMB over at PWA :) thank you! . #blackcohosh #blackcohoshflower #plantmedicine #herbalmedicine #fuckdepression #menstrualcramps #menstrualsupport #herbsforrhuematism #herbsfordepression #upliftingherbs #herbalism #clinicalherbalist #darkmoonbotanicals #plantwitchacademy #learnherbalism #materiamedica #plantwitch #greenwitch #learnherbalism #herbalismforbeginners #herbsformenopause #herbsforpms #pmsproblems #menopauseproblems #menopausesymptoms #normalizethemenstrualcycle #periodpositive #queerherbalist #herbalwitch at Asheville, North Carolina

been trucking around LA with these friends (and a couple others). i take Elderberry + Ginger every day to keep my immune system supported. (especially helpful for me post-breathwork training and now on the plane.) Kava Kava + Rose is great for when you have to be social and want to take the edge off a little, or for helping to shift nervous energy when you’re trying to be creative or just be out in the world. i’m forever reaching for plants for support bc they are so smart and i trust them. . the medicine i make comes from the bottom of the well, the belly of the beast. when i’m in the shit, i often make a blend to help guide the way. . it’s trauma medicine. void medicine. grief medicine. joy medicine too. medicine to hold you at the edges and walk you across the threshold. reconnecting to aliveness bc plants are so very alive. . it’s medicine i make because i need it. it’s medicine i offer cause maybe you need it too. . i hope they do their magic (they will. plants are their own bosses, i’m just a connector) and connects you back to yourself where all the wisdom and healing lives. my whole heart goes into making everything and i feel blessed to have the connection with plants that i have. . everything is in my shop on my website. there’s so many fun things! salves, tinctures, alcohol free oxymels, tea, flower essences, single herb tinctures, a smoke blend and more. we can also do a sliding scale consultation (have some openings later this month) and there’s an option for a custom essence as well. all plants and raw honey is organic and from small farms. kava kava comes fresh from a amazing small farm in Hawaii. 🙏🏻

Y'all, it's so validating to finish a project and have folks immediately jump on it and want a copy, thank you so much. Lots of dandelion zines going out in the mail this weekend, along with the Echinacea zine and various other things. 💛💚💜 . . Swipe to see the non-cropped, very real messy as heck shot of what my desk actually looks like, and also who's occupying my chair at the moment. 😸 . . If you're still thinking about these zines, they're in my shop, link in profile. Patreon patrons, your packages (including the dandelion zine)are going out today! I think next month's patreon object is going to be a screenprint, maybe of the cover art for the dandelion zine.. . . And, the next zine in this series is going to be on stinging nettle, another abundant local food and medicine. I'm aiming to have that done in May or maybe June. 🍃 . . #dandelion #Echinacea #stingingnettle #nettle #urticadioica #herbalmedicine #herbalism #zines #learnherbalism #learnherbalmedicine #nonbinaryherbalism #queerherbalism #queerherbalist #nonbinaryherbalist

medicine-making time with my beloved yarrow, aka Achillea millefolium, aka milenrama, aka tlaquequetzal. yesterday I harvested aboveground flowering parts to make a tincture (alcohol extract) in vodka using the simplers' method. I am SO in love with yarrow! the scent alone! 😍this is one of my primary plant allies that I always keep on hand in my medicine cabinet, especially for first aid (yarrow is supremely anti-infective, and can help stop bleeding), immune-boosting, and mxnstrual support. I think of yarrow as a boundary keeper, both physically & psychically, in terms of how she helps our bodies fight infection, and provides energetic support for strong personal boundaries (especially as a flower essence). #queerherbalist #greenwitch #gardentherapy #diy #medicinemaking #flowermedicine #achilleamillefolium

Clear vision. 🖤🔥 Posted @withrepost@queernature “In my work as an abortion doula, I have become comfortable sitting with death—holding space for those who choose to ‘give death.’ It is often saturated with the heaviness of grief, but not always. I find there is a specific feeling to the space we occupy together in time: it is the feeling of space becoming liminal. I felt this same sensation settle over me in our workshop as we crouched, witnesses to the being’s life coming to a close. Occupying liminal space—the in-between places in time—is very potent, I think. I believe it is during these times we are most able to hear the messages of our ancestors, and of plants. And when queer, magical AF folks gather and occupy & hold this space together, something truly extraordinary happens. I cannot think of another time in my life quite like it. . I observed the way that we all chose to engage or give ourselves space from what was happening: moving forward to use our hands, or easing back to witness. It was a perfect shifting of necessity. . As Tzuria guided us in a bladed dance, tracing lines, helping us separate hide from muscle, fat from fascia, I was struck by something I learned once: our bodies store memory—specifically, trauma is often stored in the fascia (as well as other places). This intelligent sheet of connective tissue keeps us safe, keeps our bodies together, and Remembers. ‘You won’t always be holding this,’ I told my fascia, ‘You won’t hold your trauma like this forever. Someday, it will be gently encouraged out.’ And, I can slowly try to give death to the mechanisms that no longer serve me.” ⚡️Continued in comments⚡️ Bonnie (she/hers) @salt_witch . #queernature #nothingstraightaboutnature #queerwildernessproject #weareliminalnotinvisible #outsidewithpride #coloradoqueer #prideoutside #diversifyoutdoors #queersinnature #queersinthewoods #queerherbalist #queerecology #earthskills #deathanddying #queerdoula #natureconnection #earthconnection

Arnica chamissonis, or meadow Arnica, emerging! This species of Arnica has slightly smaller flowers than your classic mountain Arnica, Arnica montana, but grows much better at lower elevations. We started these baby Arnicas from seed last spring. They were fairly delicate the whole season (as I've read they typically are) so I'm pretty elated to see them popping their heads back up! #meadowarnica #greenwitch #queerherbalist #regenerativeagriculture #plantmagik at North Chesterfield, Virginia

Trans day of visibility 🌱✨🌈 As a non-binary trans person, I’m committed to cultivating spaces in the herbal community for our stories and experiences, and to making medicine that uplifts our queerness. This is my partner and co-creator. Their heart is always with the plants, and they are my biggest support in this journey. 💛🐝 . . @queernature (and if you aren’t following them already you should!) is doing incredible work with queering and decolonizing ecology, interspecies relationships and ancestral place-based skills. 🐾🌳 . .[image description: @d3vcat smiling happily amidst green foliage, wearing the queernature t-shirt] #queerherbalism #queerherbalist #tdov #queernature at Smith College Botanic Garden

sometimes my relationship to plants feels so private. being with plants and learning from them in order to create remedies to support us is a place i often go to decompress and reconnect to myself and the land. i’m always happy to hear from others that they feel supported by the remedies that have come through to me in this deep and personal work. that my love and deep reverence and respect for plants comes through to others makes me happy. below is a testimonial from a long term client. if you want to read more, there’s a link in my profile. if you want to share a testimonial please do. there’s a link on the testimonial page. and all these friends in the image are available upnin my shop.🙏🏻❤️ . "I started working with Corpus Ritual tinctures and other blends in mid-2016. During that time I've worked with Sweet Release, Panic Bloom, Ease the Fuzz, and Clear Head, and am most recently working with the Breathe smoke blend. They've all functioned as nervous system and adrenal support and have been companions on this journey when anxiety has manifested in difficulty sleeping, breathing, or getting my mind to calm down enough that I'm able to do what needs to be done. There is such palpable love, respect, and understanding of the plants that goes into every bottle, jar, and bag, and I'm so grateful for Jennye's sharing of this beautiful, necessary work."-Shomriel

💕🎀 Just living my gender fluid fantasy in mauve and a lil bun, making spring potions and loving on plants 💕🌷 . 🐍🏜🦂 After today I’ll be taking a short break to camp in the mojave with cinder cones, wildflower washes and crystal canyons. Time to recharge and go real deep with the land, but I’ll be back to filling orders in a week or so. Our spring sale is still going through Sunday and postage is free—for now. . Also this mullein print shirt from @ritual_union_ is 🌼🌸✨(not pictured: their amazing yarrow hydrosol protecting all this femme energy). . . #queer #nonbinary #genderqueer #femme #enby #they #genderisover #queering #genderfluid #hardfemme #butchqueen #queerherbalist #them

Spring Dandelion roots 😍 I dug these out of my (other) new herb bed at my friend's farm yesterday while I was weeding it. These babies are an awesome liver support & diuretic, among other things. The leaves have gone into vinegar to extract all their awesome minerals. These roots will be chopped today to dry for tincture & tea making later. ☀️🌱💖🔪 #seasonalconnection #herbalmedicine #herbgrowing #dandelion #taraxacum #liver #plantsofinstagram #witchesofinstagram #queerherbalist #transherbalist at Salt Spring Island

Finding my light as a patient-actor. I have a complex set of relationships with the Medical Industrial Complex as a person with invisible disabilities, a holistic health care provider, and an educator who teaches future doctors how to provide patient-centered care. I am an herbalist who relies on pharmaceutical medication to survive, someone who knows what it feels like to be continuously misgendered while “receiving care,” a person with medical trauma, and someone who envisions a future liberated from settler colonialist and capitalist ways of framing health and distributing access to medical resources. In the meanwhile, I just want to reduce the harm that happens in these spaces and help shape doctors into care workers who are truly of service to their patients. Sending love to all the patients out there, especially those who don’t have the luxury to rely solely on herbal medicine for your care needs. #medicalindustrialcomplex #patientcentered #harmreduction #healingtrauma #abledsareweird #queerherbalist #carework (image description: white femme with glasses wearing a patient gown is taking a selfie beside boxes of nitrile gloves) at Stanford Medicine

Tonight we celebrate the Vernal Equinox and the return of the Light, the start of Spring (in the northern hemisphere), and the lengthening of the day. Tonight we celebrate the Full Moon in March; varyingly called the Warming Moon, the Crow Moon, the Planting Moon. This is a time for honoring the arduous journeys that have brought us thus far, and to envision the life that we want to birth for ourselves. Saturday's classes will have this in mind, so come prepared to manifest your supermoon glow-up!
