A handmade healing salve!

Today, I'm working in my kitchen, whipping up a treat for the folks who come to the Green Sprouts Festival this weekend.  I've been infusing fresh organic calendula flowers in olive oil for 2 weeks, and today I'm turning that oil into a salve. salve 1 |sav; säv| noun an ointment used to promote healing of the skin or as protection.

The first 75 visitors to our booth this year will get a free sample of the Family Tree Medicine Calendula Salve!  We use calendula salve for cuts, scrapes, bruises, and other types of boo-boos.

You can also enter your name to win a brand new Moby Wrap.  Dr. Maurer and I both used this wrap for our little ones when they were babies. So, if you or someone you know is having a baby soon, stop on by, say hi, and try your luck at winning.

We look forward to seeing you there, rain or shine!

Green Baby Showers!

I love this article on how to love up a new mama, sustainably.  Babies are the biggest consumer population in the U.S. and there's so much available that's been gently used, or hardly used at all! Dr. Jenny and I will be at the Green Sprouts Portland festival again next month (Sunday, Sept. 26th), so mark your calendars!  We'll be doing a fabulous prize drawing and giving tips for Green Baby Showers & other health care pearls.  Best of all, it's FUN and FREE!  Lots of interesting talks and information---see you there.

Scenes from the Clinic

Here at the clinic things are growing!  Our practices are growing, our vegetables are growing, and our happiness about being Naturopathic Doctors in a city as wonderful as Portland is, of course, always growing! We are already able to harvest lots of greens with beets and tomatoes just around the corner.  Always feel free to stop by and enjoy a bit of salad on us!
