Elder, Sambucus nigra L., is one of the plant medicines that I always have around. I have the syrup on hand for whenever I feel I'm coming down with something—it's invaluable for immune health and the one I reach for over and over again compared to other immune-supporting herbs. Here's why.
Now, more than ever, we need to holistically support our mind, body, and spirit. In the spirit of collaboration, I reached out to my friend Alexandra to share some of what she's doing to support immune health on a daily basis.
Either way, when things are uncertain it can be quite the opportunity to create from within, to get to know ourselves, and to innovate. There are some practical things we can do to reconnect with the earthy nature of being human. And there are ways we can connect with our higher selves so that we can stay lifted and focused on the present moment.
We are all seeking ways to support our immunity through these times so I wanted to talk about dry body brushing. If you haven't used a dry body brush in your skin and body routines, now is a great time to start!
