STORIES WORTH TELLING

BIRTH STORIES - MEET MEGAN

Hello pretties,

I am thrilled to be launching the very first Eden House birth story. (YAY!) My hope with this series of posts it to shine light on the very fabric of life, and the wondrous women who facilitate it.

PLANT POWER - ECHINACEA

This is Part I of a sequence of posts I am writing called Plant Power. Hope you Enjoy.

I will tell you up front, I haven't always cared about things like this. Earth. Natural remedies. Clean living. Herbs. Etc. Up until a few years ago, I was as far as "natural" as they come.

The only "herb" that made it into my weekly routine was tea...the Kroger brand...with 2 heaping cups of sugar. I was an all natural southern belle, you could say. And to think that medicine could come from a plant? Yeah, right. I remember the first time I heard about essential oils. Literally thought it was voodoo. Two drops of clary sage and a little bit of peppermint oil for my pms. Ok, mhm. Doubt it. Pass the Midol, please.
