Scenes from Sundays

image12.jpg

Sundays have been so beautiful, I had to share. Starting the day with Rx deliveries - on the bike - and recently to a new boutique in Greenpoint - Mind Over Matter. It opened this month, taking over the old One Well location, and among the housewares and holistic health and beauty products, you'll find most of my line there.

One of the products I'll stock there is new-ish for me, which I teased a while ago (on Instagram) and have been tweaking the recipe for, but is definitely there now: Remineralizing Whitening Toothpowder. An all natural dry "toothpaste" that will actually help repair your teeth, rather than stripping them of their natural strength (minerals). It's on the shelves at m|m and in my shop.

See some Rx herbal teas (also newly available online), our Mugwort tincture and the trusty Elderberry Extract making new friends:

After a stop at Botica & Co. for a shot of their exceptional mushroom extract (including eight different varieties) it was off to errands in the city.

Not pictured: my biker's shoulders tan.

While the sun was out, I recharged my quartz. In the remaining calendula-Epsom salt mix from the batch made for products, just because it looked good:  Juiced some beautiful, brrright orange turmeric from Dual Specialty in the east village. They're consistently the best source for fresh turmeric and I don't know where they get it but this stuff was Jurassic sized.

Realized that it matched my necklace. Which was about all I was wearing. Which is another reason I love summer. Let's call this my "hut practice" look: Which wasn't dinner appropriate so we clean up, but keep the chain as there's an orange theme going at this point.

New Season, New Rx's: Spring Syrup

img_5844.jpg

  

Though New York's weather doesn't agree, it is Spring.

In tune with it, we have some new products in the works. The first of which is a Spring Syrup - a sweet, herbal elixir of plants, flowers and delicate sugar, inspired by a friend who I see in the colors of this season, and this syrup: dusty yellow, new green, the light brown of stems.

Add a teaspoon or two to warm water, tea, or evening imbibe meant of choice for calm, a subtle smile, and dreams.

Limited batch available for purchase soon.

  

Sometimes I wonder if I just do it for the sun flares.

Contains: A decoction of Linden, St. John's Wort and Wormwood. Preserved with sucanat. And a taste of in-house vanilla extract.
