In our family garden, June is the sweetest month, when each day we marvel at the wonders of this simple paradise full of roses, herbs and flowers in bloom. The bees dart in and out of our hive, and butterflies hover and alight in the butterfly garden I planted with my daughter. Breathe deeply and you’ll catch the scent of Magnolia, Almond Bush, and Ylang-Ylang floating on the breeze.
It all seems so magical! But, as ever, the plants also offer such poignant teachings about the everyday, and seeing the thrilling blooming exuberance of this spot, I’m also reminded of all the loving care these plants have received over many months in order to reach such breathtaking heights.
It is, of course, the same with us. Coming fully into bloom takes all kinds of care and patience, a sustained effort that pays off like nothing else. The nurturing formulations I’ve created—using some favorite medicinal plants of my garden—offer just that kind of precious and powerful natural healing, the kind that can’t be replicated with a quick-fix. Take, for example, our flower waters—replenishing Bulgarian Rose Water, soothing Roman Chamomile Tonic, and energizing Essential C Tonic, containing Lemongrass. For me, these three are pure plant-based healing at its best—refined and deeply healing on so many levels. But I also love the connection that this blooming brings to us all. Take a moment to experience the uplifting rush nature delivers through its flowers—grab a wild bouquet at the farmer’s market or bejewel your salad with edible blossoms. Make it a point of enjoying all this blooming beauty!
After all, bloom-time is also the best time to remember that when we simply are who we are, we bloom, too, becoming a true force of nature. There is nothing like gazing at the perfect rose to remind us of all the potential we embody when we are true to ourselves. This month my wish for us all is to find the time and the space to flower into all that we are.
