I'm going to start off the conversation with a link to a podcast by Amber Magnolia Hill. She absolutely RAVES about this plant, and is a big fan of making the infused oil from wildcrafted/home cultivated plants, which inspired me to make my own. Awesome for nervous tension, muscle aches and pains, self care - it's really sweet and jammy! It's a lovely podcast and she talks a bit about it's energetics as well. Let me know if you listen - and enjoy!
I was talking about this with someone in our Discord last week, as we were talking about depression. I don't know how many times I've been so desperate I've gone to the doctors, and he's prescribed me some kind of prozac. Dumb really - I should just know to take SJW regularly or at least use it as a go to when I'm struggling. It takes a good month or so to kick in, as herbs work like that - slow and gentle, mostly. Then one day, I wake up and realise I've been fine for a while, and that life is brighter again. Stupidly, when I feel good, I stop taking it - but I shouldn't!
