The air has a slight chill to it, and the sun is hitting the earth at a slightly different angle. The spiders are spinning their webs and the winter squashes are ripening. All of these are reminders that we are leaving the warmth of Summer and moving into the time of longer nights and a change in the weather. The air is crisp and the veils between the worlds grow thinner, it's a great time to focus on some preventative health measures to ensure that you are fortified and ready to face the oncoming Winter. We give careful consideration to the physical and emotional demands of the season both in curating and making your Autumn Shares.
CSH Shares are available for preorder and will ship out or be available for local pick around the Autumn Equinox. The following remedies are included in your full Autumn CSH Share:
>>Elderberry Elixir: A combination of elderberries, rosehips, asian pear, brandy, cinnamon and honey. This Elixir single handedly kept us from getting sick last Autumn and Winter. The immune support that you get from elderberries is unparalleled. Extra Vitamin C is provided from the Rosehips and Asian Pear soothes any cough that might pop up. Cinnamon gets it all circulating and helps warm the body. 4oz amber round.
>>>Fire Cider: A fiery immune and circulatory system support! Start the day off right with a boost of energy from this combination of apple cider vinegar, ginger, onions, garlic, horseradish and a blend of other spicy herbs. We bury the jars of fire cider in the earth for about a month before straining and bottling so they are extra potent! 4oz amber round

>>>Elecampane Honey: This is such a special honey, ask anyone who signed up for last Autumn's Share! The deep earthy taste of elecampane root mixed with local Willamette Valley honey is amazingly delicious. It's also extremely effective at warding off respiratory and bronchial ailments, especially those that are productive. And, it comes in a cute reusable Weck jar.

This flower essence will help ground you into the earth to enable you to open up into the further reaches of your psyche.

>>>Mountain Soap: Juniper//Rosemary//Fennel: Long used for its protective & detoxifying qualities, wildcrafted juniper is blended with rosemary and fennel in this handsome soap. Activated charcoal and crushed walnut husks are added to further purge the body of impurities and wash away dirt and oils, while toning the skin. All of our soaps are made in the traditional cold process method using olive, coconut and palm oil as the base. High quality essential oils are added to provide aromatherapeutic properties to each blend. The soap is hand cut and air cured for at least 4 weeks. Keep soap dry between each use to help it last as long as possible.
>>>Astragalus Bundles: Muslin bags of Astragalus Root. Astragalus Root is a superb tonic for your immune system, and an easy way to get it into your diet is to throw a few sticks into your soups, stocks, rice water, etc when you are beginning to cook your warming foods for Autumn.
