Spring to Life Vitality Nectar
A Spring Botanical Oxymel
mineral rich | blood building | detoxifying
Spring to Life Vitality Nectar integrates the medicines and life-giving energies of spring with this botanical oxymel.
An oxymel is simply a mixture of honey and vinegar. Here I used organic apple cider vinegar that I infused with fresh, wildcrafted horsetail, stinging nettle, chickweed and cleaver. I let the plants extract in this vinegar for one full solar revolution. I then strained, and mixed with LOADS of local, raw sweet clover honey.
Symbiiotica is a dynamic ecosystem of devotional offerings that work to honor the threads of planetary interdependence.
All mushroom tinctures are made by Symbiiotica are from wild harvested or locally & organically grown fruiting bodies (aka mushrooms, not mycelium). They are processed using a triple extraction method to bring forth the full spectrum of medicinal constituents from the fungi into the medicine.
These rich, abundant, biodiverse, lands of which I live and have the honor to be in relationship with are a product of thousands of years of Indigenous Land Management, ceremony and intentional tending from the original stewards of this land.
With acknowledgment that I, and so many non-Indigenous folk benefit and profit from the gifts of stolen lands, my prayer is that through my actions, I may contribute to the repair, protection and restoration of the ecological, social and cultural relationships that promote regeneration and inter-species harmony.
10% of Symbiiotica medicine proceeds will go towards helping to support the Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians current efforts to protect sacred sites located in their ancestral territory; lands that are today known as the Jackson State Demonstration Forest. Learn more here.
