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.

Did you get BURNED?! Herbs to the rescue!!

Here in the Berkshires everything is brown and dreary-looking.  The gardens are all cut back and ready for winter — and it’s getting cooooold!!  But anticipation is building as the turkey takes up too much room in the fridge, while it awaits its Thursday debut as the Central Feature on the table to feed family and friends.  I’m getting out my grandmother’s recipe for homemade cranberry-nut bread.  Let’s hope that, with all this cooking and baking that nobody gets burned! 

If they do – God forbid! – Mystical Rose Herbals’ Burn Ointment can come to the rescue!!

Did you see the pictures posted by Mystical Rose Herbals on Instagram and Facebook last week?  The whole week was spent creating new batches of some of the supremely effective salves and creams that are unique to Mystical Rose Herbals and I let you in “behind the scenes” so you could feel the excitement as herbs are transformed into healing mediums using only ingredients found naturally in God’s earth.

On today’s radio show I will give you the background of our fabulous BURN OINTMENT – how it was inspired by a horrific burn that one of our daughters got while working with a Cappuccino machine some years ago.  The combination of herbs worked like magic and I turned the recipe into our “Burn Ointment” that is now available on our website.  You can order it here: http://www.mysticalroseherbals.com/medicinal-salves-balms/ (Scroll down for the Burn Ointment)

Towards the end of the show you’ll also hear about how much fun and how easy it is to make grape jelly — but you might already have had a sneak preview of that since I’ve been posting the pictures here all week!

Tune in this afternoon to http://www.magnificatmedia.com/broadcast/

1) Pig fat awaiting trimming
2) Trimmed fat rendering
Freshly-rendered lard from The Farm New Marlborough.com

Making Homemade Grape Jelly from Wild Grapes … cont’d.

Hello again!  So here we are on Day #2 of making your own grape jelly.  It’s actually kind of too late in the season here in the Berkshires to pick wild grapes because we’ve had too many killing frosts and the grapes look more like raisins on the vine.  But these were picked in time and it’s fun to see that it can be done — and easily!  You might be able to go to your local farmers’ market, if they are still operating, and buy some Concord Grapes.  They have the most flavor and, other than wild, I have never used any other kind to make grape jelly.  OR … believe it or not … you can simply buy frozen grape juice concentrate from the frozen food section of your grocery store and that’s the easiest.  Keep in mind that you don’t need grapes to make jelly or jam — you can always use another fruit or berry.  Try peaches, apples (for apple butter!), plums, cherries, etc.  

Wild grapes ready for the transformation into jelly
