tootie frolickin amongst calendula, yarrow and dill
eternal resting place
making apple chips and using the scraps to make apple cider vinegar! already have a jar in the process but i keep finding more uses for acv so i’ll keep makin more!
i reaaally wanna make my special apple butter recipe but i dont have appropriate sized jars atm
hurray for creating long lasting, healthy yums, from foof that was free!
whenever i have any pain or discomfort anywhere on my body i soak a cloth in water w/ lavender essential oil and place that on the area of discomfort. … i actually keep a container of water w/ lavender in it in the fridge.. useful for pain, itches, bug bites, sunburns, headaches etc etc .. i use cold water in the summer and warm water in the winter.. use whatever is comfortable for you!
lavender oil can be added to any carrier oils you have at home (olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil etc) and you can give your self an abdominal massage with the oil. you can massage your abdomen without oils though, and it will still help the pain! i find that to be one of the most comforting things for menstrual pain, indigestion etc
(*try chamomile, lemon balm, or marjoram if you don’t have lavender oil)
drink tea w/ chamomile, lemon balm and lavender! they are my three favorite herbs for good reason. don’t add too much lavender as the flavour can be overwhelming and can make you very sleepy! i generally use 1 part chamomile, 1 part lemon balm, and 1/2 part lavender.
valerian capsules or drops are great for more persistent cramps.
try doing stretches, yoga, and simple work outs. blood flow to the pelvic area is very important in relieving cramps. sex/masturbation is great for cramps!!
if the pains are severe, consult a doctor. we have been taught that intense menstrual pain is normal and it is not. if you’re doctor tells you its normal, find a new doctor. severe menstrual pains are caused by other factors and needs to be dealt with by a professional. natural health care professionals are way more understanding with those issues.
good luck, good vibes! xoxoxo

IQALUIT, Nunavut — A head of cabbage for $20. Fifteen bucks for a small bag of apples.
A case of ginger ale: $82.
Fed up and frustrated by sky-high food prices and concerned over widespread hunger in their communities, thousands of Inuit have spent weeks posting pictures and price tags from their local grocery stores to a Facebook site called Feed My Family.
WHAT IN THE FUCK? This shit is not okay.
ughhslfkajsdlf gross gross gross
Reblogging for the extra articles.
Also… I might show up to this protest and support them.
Pay attention to this stuff, please, followers who haven’t heard about this! This kind of thing is completely erased in news media.
This is really fucking important.
This is why I don’t respect anyone who blindly supports the anti-sealing protestors. Because for a lot of people, it’s the only affordable option.
It’s not just Iqaluit. In Nain, Labrador this problem has been going on for ages and nobody does anything about it. $47 for a ham and $17 for a block of cheese. In Rigolet, Labrador, a loaf of bread costs $7. Here’s another picture of an Iqaluit food price changing before your very eyes.
The NNCP is starving people, reducing their food choices, and keeping people on EI poor. This is so, so wrong.
How can we help? I joined the group and checked out the website, but I didn’t see anything that can be actively done (other than raising awareness, which, of course, is great).
Excellent question! If you read through the group (which is here, for anyone who missed it), there are people talking about some ways to help.
- Look at the latest news on the Feeding My Family website to see what the priorities are and how you might be able to help.
- If you’re Canadian, call your local MP and ask to discuss this issue and express your concern.
- Look up ways to support putting pressure onto airlines to charge fair rates (a $1000 plane ticket should be from one coast to the other, not a few hundred miles).
- Research and learn what you can about food sustainability. For a start, how about learning square foot/metre (French intensive) gardening or container gardening and starting to practice it yourself? Share these techniques with friends and family. Get good at it so you can teach them to others who have poor food security in your own area.
- For the love of God, stop signing “anti-sealing”/”anti-hunting” petitions and supporting Greenpeace’s actions without understanding the complicated, nuanced situation in the North.
- Watch the FB group, because people there mention direct donations and ways to help the organizations actually on the ground there.
- For example, one person is starting up a donation project/fundraiser.
- Look at what organizations like FoodShare are doing and support them.
There is so much to be done. Sharing news articles and stories, lists of resources, donation and fundraising pages, and knowledge about food security is critical, but there’s a lot more work of all sorts.

"On Periods: Let’s put this shit to bed right now: Women don’t lose their minds when they have period-related irritability. It doesn’t lower their ability to reason; it lowers their patience and, hence, tolerance for bullshit. If an issue comes up a lot during “that time of the month,” that doesn’t mean she only cares about it once a month; it means she’s bothered by it all the time and lacks the capacity, once a month, to shove it down and bury it beneath six gulps of willful silence."
i love when people are loving <3
dehydrating a crazy amount of citrus, listening to neil young, trying to simplify my thoughts and figure out what i really want for myself.
i have a few buddies at work that i’ve started to have really deep life talks with and it’s nice to be able to bounce ideas off of people that arent invested in me as deeply as friends/family are. it’s one of those “i can’t wait to go to work” mornings.
always trying to figure out if i’m not leading the life i want to or if i just don’t know how to be content.
trying to simplify my passions so they are universal to wherever i am, whoever i’m with. strength is finding happiness and peace in any circumstance.
