The wind was chilly, at least to me, a Florida girl through and through. 70 degrees warranted long yoga pants, a jacket, and tennis shoes- no barefoot gardening for me today! I hugged my arms in, criss-crossing my jacket as I shuffled to my “spot”. It is what I get to wake up to every morning, where I see the sun reflect its early morning glow to its late afternoon haze. It is the bank of the river but best of all, my “spot” is hidden by a hundred year old Podocarpus tree. The old tree provides shade to my forrest medicinals and a back rest for me when I sit in my spot. The grass was illuminated by the reflection off the water, while I regrouped. The morning was spent getting JW off to school and my mother off to work (she wakes up ridiculously early but is still always late getting out the door). The stress of running two lives is forming knots up my neck.
Although I would like to have a target date for when the website is finalized and my store is ready for the world, I simply cannot give one. I am a one woman operation; what started as a passionate hobby has now turned into a business, so I can share with you my knowledge and remedies. My son will always come first on my priorities, but my healing garden is a close second. The house always gets neglected and the laundry is piling up. I have to keep my shelves stocked at OwlButterfly, what I will always use as my brick and mortar.
This means healing remedies are always in the works and as my business grows (eek!), so does the demand for more products. I am working through the night to ensure my message is spread. We are in a time of health crisis; facing antibiotic resistant illnesses and allergy rates are at an all time high. The answer is not, of course, to continue to rely on the same companies who got us into this mess. If we learn to respect and responsibly use Florida’s vast plant community, we can optimize our health naturally.
If you would ever like any additional information on Florida’s herbs or my products, please email me or visit The OwlButterfly. I frequently update both my Facebook and my Instagram!
I do this because I love it. I share it because it works.
