Dear Mystical Rose Herbals friends,
 
On tomorrow’s radio show  (Magnificatmedia.com/radio “Your Morning Tradition”) we discuss how to keep your skin healthy, glowing  and vibrant using herbs and elements from “God’s Pharmacy”.  It’s a subject that becomes especially relevant during the dry, winter months.  Hope you’ll tune in!
 
The show airs at least four times on a Saturday; 7:30 a.m.; 2:00 p.m.; 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. EST.

It's a cold and icy day. Have you been given a free day? Can you stay home and enjoy the cozy warmth of your living room today? What a puuurfect day for a de-tox regimen!
Today or whenever you need to take a day off, consider this:
You can get the awesome benefits of soaking in the Dead Sea with Therapeutic Dead Sea Bath Soaks from Mystical Rose Herbals!
We have devised a way to mimic a bath in the Dead Sea ... but we "kick it up a notch" by adding a big bag of selected herbs to upgrade your bath into a "body tea".
Begin to draw a nice, hot bath. Pour the whole container of Dead Sea Salt into the tub as it fills. Infuse the bag of herbs under the hot, running water. Meanwhile, brew yourself a cup of Berkshire Meadows Herbal Health Tea while you prepare your bath ... then, light a candle, put some Mozart on and treat yourself to a delightful and relaxing soak that will pull toxins from your body while restoring your Magnesium and electrolyte levels!
It's important to finish this special "you" time! Put on a warm robe and cozy up with a movie or a good book. Continue to relax for at least an hour; allowing yourself to fall asleep would be the best of all!

It's a bitter cold day here in the Berkshires.  We've had our usual "January Thaw"; it rained for a few days straight and even was up in the 40's, but now we are back to more-normal 12-degree days, only, because it rained, all of the snow is gone and the brownness is exposed.  Just a few inches to "cover the ugly" would be nice!  (I'd even shovel as a trade for wanting the snow!)

I just listened to Magnificatmedia.com/radio pre-recorded broadcast of my Mystical Rose Herbals show.  (It's weird to hear myself on the radio!)  Today we talked about the benefits of Vitamin C and, very importantly, the importance of getting a Vitamin C COMPLEX instead of just one isolated component, such as ascorbic acid.  Get your vitamin C in whole food form.  Berkshire Meadows Herbal Health Tea (http://www.mysticalroseherbals.com/berkshire-meadows-herbal-health-tea/) contains a plethora of food-source vitamins, minerals & anti-oxidants.  It's kid-tested and delicious!  Make a pot and sip it throughout the day.  Your immune system will thank you by keeping illness at bay!  The show will air three more times today: 2:00; 4:30 and 6:00 EST.  I hope you can tune in!

Berkshire Meadows Herbal Health Tea "at the ready" to be bagged.
This tea is made in small batches, so don't wait to order!
Mystical Rose Herbals is a very small company, and all products are made by me,
Jean Pollock, Holistic Health Practitioner.
I don't usually have help, and, although I do my best to keep my products ready for orders, it is best to order before you run out so that in case you have to wait for your order, you won't go without!

This goes for all products, including Mystical Rose Herbals Face Cream, which is called, aptly, 
"MAIDEN'S GLOW'.
I just made a fresh batch this week (it's soooo nice!), so presumably I'll be all set for awhile, but it's still best to order before you are out.  "Maiden's Glow" is a unique formula that works wonders on your skin, literally lifting it from "drab" to giving it a "glow"! Here is what it looks like freshly-made.



Again, order before you run out and if you haven't had the pleasure of using it,
DON'T WAIT ANY LONGER!
You'll love it, I promise.

RADIO INTERVIEW WITH JEAN POLLOCK, HHP

Hello Friends out there in Herbal Land --

I was interviewed by Mike & Lisa on MagnificatMedia Radio in May.  Here's the interview:

http://www.magnificatmedia.com/category/audio-archives/your-morning-tradition/

We had a lot of fun and it seems like it was a nice intro to the use of herbs for natural healing.

Hope you enjoy it!

Dandelions!

 Dandelions are viewed as a noxious weed by most folks today, but did you know that they were brought over to America by the Europeans for their many useful properties?  They are traditionally dug in the springtime, especially by the old Italians (are there any left?!) to put in salads.  The leaves are full of vitamins and minerals, have a bitter taste, which aids digestion by getting juices flowing in your mouth as you chew.  If you want to mitigate the bitter flavor, just mix some dandelion greens in with your other salad greens.

Or you can use  my grandmother's recipe, which is to fry a few pieces of salt pork in a mixture of butter and olive oil, add your dandelion greens and saute' until they're wilted & hot. Sprinkle with salt and freshly-ground pepper, shake on some Balsamic vinegar & serve..  Yum!!

Mom was right

OK, so when is Mom not right?  I AM walking too fast in the video.  I want to share more with you, so I'll post the videos that I have and when I make more, I'll make them a bit longer.  But for now...
