Giveaway Monday – Wild Rose and Wild Sumach Elixir from Kiva Rose

Wild Rose & Wild Sumach Elixir

This week we have a special elixir made by Kiva Rose of Ringtail Rose Folklorica and a beautiful children’s book written by her partner, Jesse Wolf Hardin, “I’m A Medicine Woman, Too!“. You may know Kiva as the creator of The Traditions in Western Herbalism ConferencePlant Healer Magazine,  The Anima Center or her lovely blog that I often refer to, The Medicine Woman’s Roots.

Rose and Sumach are a wonderful match in many formulas, and taste great together as well! This sweet and tart elixir is cooling and astringent, and makes a perfect quick remedy for a sore throat, heat headache, anxiety attack with feeling of overheatedness and rapid heartbeat, and even as a quick application to a small, itchy rash. It can also be helpful in cases of excessive urination with no known organic cause, especially if the excess urination is accompanied by dry skin, dizziness, and mild low blood pressure.

This lovely duet was wildcrafted by Kiva and lovingly made in a small batch from her medicine cabin at her home in the Gila Mountains of New Mexico.

Herbalist, wildcrafter, artist, and storyteller, Kiva Rose lives in a canyon botanical sanctuary within the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico. She is also the co-director of the Traditions In Western Herbalism Conference, held each September in the mountain Southwest, coeditor of Plant Healer Magazine, and publisher of the just released historical novel, The Medicine Bear by Jesse Wolf Hardin, and maintains an herbal blog, The Medicine Woman’s Roots.

The author’s delightful daughter Rhiannon was the inspiration and model for this tale of realization and growth, as she first resists believing she could ever be a Medicine Woman like the herbalists and healers she’s met, but then realizes the ways in which she is already the woman of power she hopes to be! Includes a “Name the Herb” game.

Jesse Wolf Hardin is the author of 7 books and over 500 published articles, a teacher of Animá nature-inspired practice and cofounder of the Animá Medicine Woman tradition. He and his partners offer empowering online courses, as well as counsel and healing consultations, retreats and Summer events at their botanical sanctuary in the enchanted wildlands of Southwest New Mexico. His work has been praised by luminaries from Gary Snyder, Paul Winter, Edward Abbey and Joanna Macy to Terry Tempest Williams

    I will be grateful at the opportunity to taste and heal with this amazing and powerful wild crafted elixir.
    My whole family will benefit from the elixir and the inspirational knowledge from the book. ( specially my 5 year old son who strongly believes and only wants herbal medicine or flower teas as he calls it)!
    I am very curious to try and find out more about Sumach, as I never heard of it before. the properties of this special combination of Rose and Sumach is definitely something to be talked about! so i`ll be sharing this offer immediately!
