Hello lovely readers. Before we leap into this weeks compilation of herb-tastic posts found under the #naturalmedicine tag, we'd like to bring your ATTENTION to an awesome CONTEST that that YOU my friend, should be entering!

The deadline has been EXTENDED! The prize pool is BIGGER. 20 STEEM in Prizes! We'd love for you to join us in an herbal exploration of three featured herbs: SALVIA DIVINORUM, THYME or VALERIAN.

No matter how much we think we know about plants, there is always something new to discover. This is a challenge for every skill level. Perhaps you've got a sensational recipe, a personal story, or gardening advice? Maybe you feel inspired to write, paint or sing a song? Whether you follow traditional medicinal exploration or a creative one (or a mix of the two) you'll be contributing to expanding everyone's knowledge and understanding of these special herbs. Find the rules and get more details here!

Now that I've reminded you to ENTER THE CONTEST, Go grab a mug of your favorite witchy brew and join me (@walkerland) on this week's natural medicine journey.

What's so special about moringa oil for natural medicine? Well, @artemislives will tell you all about it. She shares her excitement over finding fresh young morninga pods while describing how she'll use them, while also reminding us that sourcing ingredients locally and sustainably matters. Her efforts to provide a viable income stream for vulnerable indigenous mountain people resonates with me deeply. How about you? Check out her post Moringa Pods Are Here! - Natural Medicine for My Body... and My Business. She writes:

DELIGHTED that the moringa oil natural medicine is visibly on its way. The pods need another month or so of serious dry season heat to grow the seeds to maturity. When the first pods are deep dark brown and start to split open, that's the PERFECT time to harvest the ripe pods, bursting with their seeds. Each pod carries upwards of a dozen seeds which grow quite large, and it is these ripe seeds which we will cold-press for our Magic Moringa Oil.



This week natural dental care came up several times in the #naturalmedicine feed. Do you practice natural dentistry? Would you like to delve deeper into it? Do you have a great natural dentistry recipe you'd like to share? Tell us about it in the comments!

@misslasvegas shares her story about healing an abscessed tooth Check out her two post series What you could learn from a toothacheHow I healed my abscessed tooth. She writes:

Garlic, Turmeric, coconut oil, oregano oil and one special ingredient. Those 5 above. MAN! They're absolute saviors that everyone should have in their home at all times.
When any of us have any kind of infection, my first instinct always calls for garlic.
I can't repeat this enough: garlic is one of the best natural antibiotics to have around.

@byronmushrooms shares his intriguing recipe for a medicinal mouthwash using cardamom. Check out their post Natural medicinal mouthwash from cardamom . They write:

Cardamom not only adds a pleasant and fresh breath, but also it provides antioxidant substances, improves digestive system, detoxify our body, and ....maaaaany other beneficial effects. I’m just talking about a total vegetal treasure.

Thank you for sharing your natural medicine love and wisdom. I always learn new and fascinating things from you and sort of wish I lived in your climate so I could be exploring fresh moringa, it is such an exotic tree that a Canadian can only dream about.

Awesome posts. I caught most but didn't see the @mtnwomanmedicine one... off to read now! Loved this curation.. thanks so much for putting it together! Xxx

Thank you for trusting me with the task!

Another wonderful curation, full of such beautiful wisdom and natural healing. Thanks so much for the mention xx

being mindful and learning skills that help us find balance is a HUGE part of a #naturalmedicine journey. I've been repeating these two words that you wrote all week like a mantra.

With balance, comes wholeness.

Also, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY beautiful! I am so sorry I didn't comment that earlier, I thought I had but I might not have posted it as I've been bouncing back and forth from NM to my own and I am terrible at it.
