Autumn on the wind …

Although the cooling winds of autumn have yet to hit South Florida (it’s steaming hot, I’d love to be sitting in my beloved mountain stream right now) I find that by exfoliating and polishing my skin, tones and brighten both my skin and spirit.

Although it’s hotter than hell right now, I do love tropical environments; […]

The Glory Days of Summer

Summer has always felt like freedom to me ~ going barefoot, soft cotton dresses, screen doors, fire-flies, cold mountain creeks, bar-b-q and Sweet Corn (and I trust that those living in cold winter climates summer also brings “yes Lord, I made it through”).  Well done lassies!  Now it’s time for soft, hydrated skin and sashays […]

When I mentioned that I would no longer be offering articles there was a bit of a hoo-ha from friends and customers who enjoy my “late night ramblings” and although I enjoy writing, at times I’m at a loss to understand what my readership would like to read and so I put forth the request […]

Yes, as promised I will continue making your favorite formulas and keep the website live; however, as noted in my previous email I will be downsizing the amount of formulas that I craft so I’m able to focus on other aspects of Plant Spirit and Plant Medicine.

Change is coming …

After formulating pure botanical skincare for over 25/years I’ve decided that it’s time to “semi-retire” Mountain Spirit Botanicals so I may focus on other aspects of Plant spirit and Plant medicine, endeavors that I look forward to.

Creating natural skincare has been an enormous joy, one that has drawn me close to the natural world and […]

If you’d like to spend a few minutes creating a clean, tight and “oh so lovely” complexion, this DIY facial mask is one I love and apply a few times per week.  But first, as always, there’s a back story …

As we gear up to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day please be forewarned, I’m a fool for love.  In all its glory.  When I was young my mom often said “you’re just in love with love” and unquestionably, I am.  I’m known to swoon (and at times weep) if I see elders holding hands.

Kindness, love and […]

Organic Plant Oils for Thick, Healthy Hair

By |December 6th, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments

My mom always said “persistence pays off” and without question, it does.

Although this remedy is straightforward and easy to apply, one must be consistent to reap its benefits. Keep in mind that the condition you may want to remedy (thinning or dry, lifeless hair) did not happen overnight nor will the results happen overnight. What […]
