New Moon Women’s Gathering—This Saturday

The next New Moon is upon us, and I am already feeling the Leo Eclipse energy, not to mention all the retrogrades!

Aside from the powerful astrology and energy that is already  being felt and is affecting us, I want to make note of few changes that have been made for this upcoming New Moon Women’s Gathering.

First, there is a price change. Tickets are now $20 in advance and $25 day of the event. Thank you to all the beautiful and generous women in our circle that encouraged me to raise these prices to better honor the hard work and attention that is put into making this event the magical gathering it has become.

You can buy your tickets at this link here.

I also want to make note that there is a generous scholarship fund that has been created to assist those women who may only be able to pay partial or need full assistance to come to this event. To donate to this event click here. To use this scholarship please contact me here.

Second, we will only have a social soup and tea time for 30 minutes. The event will still begin at 6p, but we will promptly open our ritual circle at 6:30p (instead of the old 7p). This really only affects a few people who come a bit late, knowing that there is time to do so. So, please arrive promptly at 6p to help the event go smoothly and honor everyone’s time.

I hope to see many of you Saturday, to set intentions, create deep connection with other women, and be a part of a ritual that goes back to antiquity.

Making Calendula Balm Class

There is still time to sign up for tomorrow’s Making Calendula Balm Class. Come and learn about this wonderful healing plant, and leave with a lovely and incredibly healing calendula balm that you made yourself!

Here’s a bit more about the class below!

Calendula is a beautiful, edible flower, that has so many amazing medicinal qualities – it is an herb everyone should know a little something about!

In this class we will be making one of the most versatile and healing balms in the herbalist’s medicine chest.

Calendula is known for its amazing ability to promote cell repair and growth – helping it to quickly and effectively heal wounds. It is antiseptic, antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory, making it great to use on burns, bruises, sores, cuts, scrapes, rashes and skin infections. It is particularly effective for slow-healing wounds and skin ulcers.

This herb is not only strong, but it is also gentle. It is an excellent balm for new mom’s as it is very effective and safe as a nipple cream, as well as having a myriad of uses for baby, such as cradle cap and diaper rash.

Calendula balm is truly an herbal remedy no one should be without.

You will leave this class with your own 2oz tin of Calendula Balm, as well as a small jar of calendula infusing in olive oil to make another batch in the future.

Space is limited so sign up HERE today!
