August 2011

August is a month of many transitions. The air, while still hot, often has a note of change as the days grow mildly shorter. Those who attend school are preparing to go back, while those who school at home often start back in their formal schooling.

There’s still plenty of time to play outside however and with that comes cuts, scratches, sunburns and more, all great candidates for learning about the healing magic of Bergamot. This beautiful showy plant feeds hummingbirds and other pollinators in the garden while providing lots of medicine for us.

You’ll learn to make medicine that is easy to use as medicine or as food, including a recipe for Spicy Cucumber Salad which is cooling on these last hot days of summer, create a fun craft project using some fabric, a few Bergamot flowers (M. didyma works best) and a hammer and lots more!
