Is it Winter Thyme or Is it Spring Thyme???

Green nettles under a patch of spring snow

Dreary, dreary, dreary!  If it’s not snowing somewhere in the northeast, it’s raining somewhere in the northeast!  It’s hard not to get to feeling like warm weather will never come…

But, harken!  Even though we’ve had surprise springtime snowstorms, some of the plants are nevertheless pushing their little green heads bravely up through the snow.  They KNOW that it’s THYME for their yearly “come-uppance” and come UP they will, regardless of the snow!

Here at Mystical Rose Herbals, we are itching to get out into our medicinal and cooking herb gardens and rake off last year’s dead leaves, to smell that aroma of wet springtime soil that’s just been released to the sunshine and to watch our gardens grow.

Join us on Instagram — type in “Mystical Rose Herbals – Watch My Gardens Grow” to see the latest beautiful surprises that happen in our gardens and in the wild meadows, brook sides and forests of the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.  Each post also goes to Mystical Rose Herbals’ Facebook page, so join us there, too.  Please let your friends know about it so they can join us in the virtual gardening tours!

Cheer up your day with a visit to our Berkshire medicinal herb gardens — even if you can’t join us physically, you can join us “virtually” via today’s social media.  Let’s use it for more than a personal photo op — let’s use it to take a walk outside when we are not able to actually be there!

I’m inviting you to join me in our gardens and in the nearby field & woods – leave a note to let me know you’ve been there!

Stay healthy,

Jean Pollock, Holistic Health Practitioner

Digestive Aid

Vitamin, Mineral and Antioxidant Herbal Supplement 

 

 

On this week’s episode of our show, Mike, Lisa and I continue our discussion of the  very necessary departure from dependence on factory & processed foods to homemade creations made with ingredients that are in most everyone’s kitchen. The first part of our discussion is about digestion, and how it is at the core of good health.  What foods aid in digestion?  Did you know that homemade stocks are simple to prepare yet are key to a healthy diet?  Homemade bone and fish stocks supply vitamins and minerals in super-abundance!  “Jewish Penicillin” — i.e. homemade chicken stock — didn’t acquire its nomenclature for nothing!

Eating foods prepared naturally and in our own kitchens is not only do-able, but it’s actually quite simple and can be accomplished by anyone — even the most untrained cooks!  On Saturday’s show, Lisa and I give you our own recipes for easy, homemade and super-healthy stocks.

Set your computer clock to automatically join us every Saturday!  The show is aired on your computer at 7:30 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 4:30 and 6:00 pm.  http://www.magnificatmedia.com  Mystical Rose Herbals LISTEN LIVE!

FREE SHIPPING ON Your Springtime Liver Cleanse!

 

Haven’t done your yearly liver cleanse yet?  No problem — it’s not too late and a liver cleanse is simple.  Mystical Rose Herbals has formulated a combination of herbs designed to help cleanse and strengthen the liver in its very important job of removing toxins from the body.  To simplify the explanation of how these herbs work to cleanse the liver, think of the original computer game known as “Pac-Man”.   Similar to Pac-Man eating up the enemy, the herbs in our formula work synergistically to attract and eliminate exhausted liver cells & they also help the liver dispel toxins.  Other herbs in the formula help your liver as it re-generates new, healthy cells.

There is no need to do anything stringent while doing the cleanse.  No staying home to be near the bathroom or denying yourself foods.  Simply take our herbal formula as directed and try to cut down on the consumption of alcohol, dairy products and sugars.  The formula will still help your liver if you don’t modify your diet, but the less stress you are adding to the liver’s already-heavy load, especially while it’s cleansing, the better your results will be.

Since Spring is upon us, Mystical Rose Herbals is offering FREE SHIPPING on any purchase of TWO OR MORE 4 oz. bottles of Liver Cleanse Formula.  http://www.mysticalroseherbals.com/herbal-extractions/liver-cleanse-support/

Since this is a special offer, you’ll have to e-mail growingtheglow@gmail.com and list the items you’d like.  I’ll e-mail you in return and we will connect by phone for your order to be placed.

Hurry!  This offer will only last for the first week of springtime!  It begins today, March 19 and ends at midnight, March 23.

 

 

Keep on Keepin’ On!

Time to think about your garden!

Yes, for sure, it’s still very much winter!  Snow is up to the windowsills; ice is on the windshield.  All true…BUT!  Seed catalogs are coming in the mailbox soon to those lucky gardeners who happen to be on the mailing list of Johnny’s Seeds of Maine or American Meadows…

Take out a paper and pencil and listen tomorrow; begin to think about your gardens!  Now is the time to begin “planning the planting!”

I look forward to sharing with you the joy of planning your EASY-TO-DO herb gardens tomorrow on magnificatmedia.com/mysticalroseherbals.com at 7:30 a.m.; 2:00 p.m.; 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. EST.

Join us!

Looking FORWARD to spring … we are halfway there!

Happy gardening!

Wishing You All A Very Merry Christmas!

~ With blessings and the peace that come from Heavenly love!
“For God so loved the world that He sent His only-begotten Son”
From the Canticle of Zechariah:
In the tender compassion of our Lord
The dawn from on high shall break upon us,
to shine on those who dwell in darkness
And the shadow of death,
And to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Wishing you the Merriest of Christmases and a happy and healthy New Year,

Got a Cold? Here’s Why To Use Plant Medicine

Hello Friends,

The first winter colds of the season are underway with a vengeance!  Coughs, sore throats, fevers … what to do?  

You want your child, spouse or yourself to feel better as soon as possible!  You want to alleviate suffering!  What’s the best way?

Should you trust the laboratories who produce OTC cold relief?  After all, they must know what they are doing, right?

Think twice!  

OTC medicines are synthetically-produced from chemicals that are formulated in a lab.  Virtually all synthetically-produced medications cause the liver to be over-worked.  Anything that is ingested into the body that is not the same chemical makeup as the human body causes the liver to have to filter out what it doesn’t recognize.  It considers these toxic,  thereby causing stress to a liver that is already working overtime to rid your body of the illness that you are dealing with.

Using plant-based medicines (herbal extractions), that give relief naturally,  and that help your body to actually heal instead of temporarily covering up the symptoms is a better choice of attack!

Would you like to learn more?  Join us tomorrow and I’ll explain it in more detail.  Tune in to  www.magnificatmedia.com/RADIO   LISTEN LIVE at 7:30 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. EST to catch the show.  Be sure to adjust the time accordingly as you move away from the Eastern Standard Time zone.

Our herbal face & beauty products keep your skin soft and supple during the dry winter months.  Check out our selection at http://www.mysticalroseherbals.com/store/lemon-lift-dead-sea-salt-exfoliating-scrub/

I look forward to sharing with you tomorrow!

In good health and wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year!!

An Herb Book for Kids!!

You might have received an e-mail a few days ago announcing the publication of my new book, “The Magic of Plants – An Herbal Study Guide for Kids”.  

On tomorrow’s radio show  I’ll tell you what’s in this terrific book (I admit, I’m a little excited about it!).  It’s designed to easily introduce your child into the wonderful world of using plants for healing.  “The Magic of Plants” is chock-full of bright, colorful pictures and is printed on high-quality paper that is designed to last  (yearbook-quality, heavy-duty paper).

This book makes takes you on a step-by-step journey.  Your child goes from knowing nothing about the healing properties of herbs to feeling confident enough to identify some basic and safe medicinal herbs that grow in his or her own backyard and by the end of the book will be using these herbs to make teas, a healing salve and more!

Take a look at the Table of Contents: 

This new book can be used by “kids” from 8 to 80!!
