today, in our first introduction to botanical medicine, we learned about different plant actions, some of which are classed as: carminatives, bitters, hepatic, emollient, analgesic, and antimicrobial.
for those that face gastrointestinal discomfort, here are 6 herbs that follow under the carminative class and may be worth your time to look into🌱🧡.
YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT
(even drinking Espresso Martini’s at 730am for breakfast )
I’m proud of myself.
Upon realising earlier this year I was an alcoholic in denial,
I’ve drunk twice the last 3 months.
But I felt compelled to order a martini today,
So I did... Because I can.
Perhaps I am not setting a good example for others by drinking alcohol for breakfast.
But I tell you what,
It’s healthier ordering this outlier martini and drinking it with a smile on my face loving myself for it,
Then having a bottle of red wine in secret justifying it because I ‘earnt it’. It’s a hell of a lot healthier then all the strong old fashioned‘s I would down because “I’m a wounded writer who writes well in bars so this drink is fine”. Seriously. I fkn drank in secret for YEARS. It was intertwined with my creativity and expression... so I thought.. And it’s much ‘better’ then ‘going with the flow’ and ordering drinks just because others are doing so... “Another round!” “Ahh.. yeah... sure “
As life goes on , I’m learning from very wise souls that actions do not matter as much as the energy and intention behind it.
My message for you is to be your realest , rawest most messy, abstract self , and love yourself for it.

The concept of manifesting something into fruition has been circulating my Instagram lately and if I’m being completely honest, it r e a I l y bothers me when Christians do this. I’m not here to be judgemental but I think it’s important that we call each other out when we see something like this happening.
I’m sorry to be a downer on the whole concept but since when do we as human beings have the power to think or write the perfect job, house or husband into existence Like when did that actually become a thing
I’m a big believer of dreaming and having goals but at the end of the day we really don’t know what is going to happen in a year, a month, a week, tomorrow or even in an hour — only God does. I love bringing my heart to God in prayer and whatever HE wants to do with my life will be done.
As a Christian stating that I “manifested” my dream life is an insult and absolute slap in the face to God because I can’t do anything without Him. -
James 4:13-15 - Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
P.s I’m not here to start a fight online. Please DM me if you have any thoughts or feelings toward this topic! ✌🏻🥰 #realchats

You can see results in less than 14 days! Type “ MEEEEE!” if you are going to try this.
We are offering our instagram followers $20 by ordering our Activated Charcoal Teeth Whitening Powder Today at this link ⇒ http://bit.ly/CharcoalToothWhitening
Or Click The Link In Bio Now ☝️. What, a black powder that whitens teeth I'm sure you've heard the saying, opposites attract. While that may not always be true, in this case, it is.
A new study revealed that Activated Charcoal Powder is a negatively charged compound. As a result, it binds to the plaque on your tooth's surface, which is positively charged, therefore removing it, leaving teeth white.
How to Use: Slightly wet toothbrush, dip in powder, brush teeth in a small, gentle, circular motion for two minutes, then rinse your mouth thoroughly.
Here are some amazing benefits.
Easy to use.
Prevents plaque buildup or Gingivitis.

The truth about your gut.
You have trillions of organisms inside your gut. Starting with your mouth...you’re jam packed with microscopic organisms that either give you life and help you thrive, or give you death and make you literally sick from the inside out. 😩
You know all those random symptoms you struggle with The tiredness or poor sleep you can’t shake Those emotional ups and downs Those crazy cravings The inflammation or autoimmune issues that seems to have come from out of nowhere The cold you catch every winter or allergies you just can’t shake Hormones all over the place and vitamin levels low Weight that won’t budge
EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. Linked to those tiny microscopic organisms. Listen, if you don’t take care of your gut, it won’t take care of you. And it’s literally your second brain The amount of research on this is extensive, enough to make your brain explode!🤯
It’s so simple, affordable, and effective. I have come to know people with all types of issues..who’ve done all the bone broth, juicing, anti inflammatory diet, elimination diet and every other holistic path that haven’t seen the type of relief they see with this. Those things are great, but this takes it to another level! If you think you’ve tried it all, try this. If you tried it for a short time, try it for real this time! Give your body time to heal and balance! •

Even as things get busy, how will you ensure time for your wellbeing It doesn't have to take up your entire day- even a few moments of filling your own cup can leave you feeling more fulfilled ...and ready to serve others 🙏 COMMENT below the self-care you did today or WILL DO 👇 TAG a a friend who'll support you 👭
Morning Tea Lovers! So I have a slightly different post today. As some of you may have noticed I recently started a different Instagram account called @selfbotanics ~ it’s a place where I directly get to express my love of all things herbalism, naturopathy, self care, skin care, inner health, beauty and wellbeing 🌿. When we started Anvil + Essence my intention was always to go in this direction, while Ben would be sharing his love of handcrafting unique items, the intention was to do this all in the one space 😅. The problem I encountered was that I couldn’t put 100% of my whole heart and soul into what I was sharing and creating and neither could Ben (the lessons you learn in business 😉🤗). So long story short ~ if you are ever interested in learning a bit more about what I do, are interested in natural beauty, health and wellbeing or you just want to watch me create super cool solar infused herbal remedies for healthy skin and hair (what I am creating in the picture), then feel free to have a look @selfbotanics 😊. Otherwise I’ll still be here everyday sharing my love of herbal tea ~ which will always be my first love! ❤️🍃 ~ Nicole
P.S if your interested in checking out more of Ben’s work you can find it at @benjames_studio ☺️. PP.S keep an eye out for the Christmas gift boxes being released soon! X
Pardon my inactivity on social media but rest assured, we're open. I haven't responded to each an every message but I definitely process a handful of orders please check your emails including your spam folder. 🥰🥰🥰🥰
Sad to be missing the @sacredsistercollective retreat this weekend but so excited for the women who will get to experience it. Can't wait to go again!
Chakra balancing helps you to live you best life. It restores mental, physical, emotional and spiritual peace and harmony. It also helps with manifesting social, occupational, financial, environmental and intellectual well-being in life.
Chakra balancing removes negative energies and brings positive energies. The negative emotional states like anger, fear, anxiety, sadness and depressions are removed and replaced with positive mental states like joy, happiness, motivation, inspiration, calmness and peace.
There are many nadis and many chakras throughout your body. However, 72000 nadis and 114 chakras are most prominent. A Chakra Balancing Treatment @bodhi_spa can incorporate the 7 major chakras, 21 minor chakras and some of the 86 micro chakras in human body.
Chakra Balancing Treatments often include Crystal Healing, Sound Healing, Acupuncture, Vibrational Essences and Guided Meditation.
