Spirit keeps telling me to take Lavender, these past few days, bringing it into my life and to my attention in various sneaky ways. First it arrived via my current obsession with edible flower petals, and I found myself prickling it over my food. Now It’s the card I keep pulling from my home-made herbal deck. I have Lavender tincture preserved in pears, which is lovely and soft compared to the alcohol version.
I can’t say this is an issue for me at the moment but it is for many people I am energetically supporting. I love herbs that calm anxiety while also treating depression, because the two so often go hand in hand. Lavender treats dizziness and insomnia, and stops us from from getting caught up in obsessive thoughts.

I made this cake to test whether I could create a purple colour, using blueberries, and a purple taste, by adding specific herbs from my naturopathic dispensary. I created two layers. The first layer I made was the yellow looking layer you can see poking out of the middle of the cake. Prior to freezing, this layer was actually looking like a grey, overcast purple sky, … Continue reading Crown Chakra Cake
If you’ve been reading my most recent blogs, you will know I’ve been making food-as-medicine chakra-cakes.
On the weekend I made a decision-making cake, using the colours we find in the aura of excellent decision-makers: yellow and orange.
Yellow gives us clarity, vision and inspiration. Orange helps with goal setting, motivation and enthusiasm. Another way of thinking about this is that yellow provides and stimulates a really good idea, like a light-bulb flashing on….. while orange provides the inner-child vitality energy needed to pursue the idea into reality, with all the inner child’s marvellous ability to playfully side-step obstacles and turn lemons into lemonade. Orange makes us adaptable and resilient, flexible and creative.
So this is a belly chakra, solar plexus cake!

I’m making a potion for a client, an energy remedy with a herbal component.
The herbal carrier, or core remedy, is Nettles. Nettles is incredible on a spirit medicine level, working in very powerful ways to clear anger and resentment out of the aura. It’s particularly effective for cleansing, balancing and stabilising the solar plexus chakra, but in this instance, Nettles in going to be used to cleanse the heart chakra. Another way of saying this is that by clearing old anger out of the solar plexus, the heart chakra will become more stable, open, powerful…. because it’s being supported by a peaceful and empowered sense of self!
On a physical level, Nettles is a blood cleansing and building remedy. What does this mean? It means Nettles cleanses rubbish out of the tissues as well as enriching the red blood cells, making them more robust. There is definitely a sense of red-base-chakra energy about nettles, alongside it’s yellow sunlight-cutting-through-the-crap medicine! I always see yellow shafts or sword-like light when I work with nettles…. it makes me think of archangel Michael with his tie-cutting sword, or the silver energy of lightening bolts cutting through the darkness and waking us up with a bang.

I’ve just made my first love potion cake. This is a trial run for a cake I’m going to create for a friend. During this ‘draft’ of the cake, I was mostly wanting to experiment with appearance, texture and flavour. I really like the circular tower effect I have here because it will lend itself beautifully to the range of ‘chakra cakes’ I want to make.
This particular cake grounds the heart chakra whilst also raising its frequency. The earthy brown colours at the base function as a grounding mechanism, while the white upper layer lifts the heart into heaven! This cake not only blesses us with the heaven (haven) of a blissful and stable relationship and the heavenly high frequencies of a delicious raw vegan cake, it helps us invite spirit into our heart chakras, so that we may be guided to find our highest love frequency.

I’m making up lots of remedies for people… beautiful blends of herbs with gem elixers, flower essences and my aura colour essences.
Spirit is teaching me how to use herbs in a different way… a way that fits who I am and how I work. For example, here is some information on the use of Raspberry Leaf, from my spiritual herbal teachers/guides:
“Raspberry Leaf repairs the psychic womb. This is a power centre for women; a place where they store some of their deepest feelings, a place from which they access their deepest wisdom and their ‘women’s intuition’.

Over the past few months, I let everyone know I was letting go of my dispensing practice and I sold half my stock at cost price to local practitioners. Since then, I have come full circle, but I’m not the person I was when I first began this journey.
