Starting a Sourdough Starter

Combining sourdough and einkorn flour makes for the most easily digested wheat bread available, even for some who are gluten intolerant. (Not celiacs though of course.) Here’s the beginnings of my sourdough starter at home and how you can make your own: https://botanicalalchemyandapothecary.com/sourdough-starter

Good Mood Food and Supps

Is your mood taking a dip now that summer is ending? Of course stress and anxiety can take a toll at any time of the year, and prevention could be as simple as what’s on your dinner plate. Natural supplements come in handy too, especially when moods threaten to turn into states of being, such as depression or chronic anxiety. Click the link below for some for foods and supplements that might help you get through your next bout of blues, intense stress, or anxiety. https://botanicalalchemyandapothecary.com/good-food-for-your-mood

New Blog Address

Hello everyone! I’ve been quiet here lately b/c I’ve been working on a new blog site which I can’t wait to share with you. I started Spice of Life Blog right after finishing grad school when I just wanted a place to write again in a way that wasn’t in the grad school genre and reclaim my personal voice. Now I’m ready to start putting more time into a blog and although I thought about just reworking this space a bit, it quickly became clear I needed a new look, new categories, new everything, and so instead of a remodel, I guess I’m moving houses. I so hope you’ll join me!

Much like this one, my new blog will be about herbs, food intolerances (both managing and healing them), essential oils, natural foods/products, and green beauty. In the future I hope to have links to other herbalists and wellness practitioners around the world as a kind of virtual healing center resource. I also intend to offer herbal classes and tutorials there as well, and perhaps even some products. This is just the beginning and I hope to see you there at my new site, Botanical Alchemy & Apothecary. Please subscribe and let me know what you think about the new look. I’m still in the setting up phase and welcome suggestions.

XOXO, Kristen

PS~ If you know anyone else who is interested in herbs, essential oils, food intolerances, natural foods and products, and green beauty, please share the address: www.botanicalalchemyandapothecary.com with them. I can’t wait to have a community of like-minded people sharing ideas and growing and learning together.

Happy October everyone!
