Re: menopause and sex!

Cocoa butter! Either in a suppository or just on your (or partner's) finger. Warm it up first in a potpourri warmer.

Re: What herbal projects are you working on this Fall?

I have my eye on those dandelion roots too. I want to gather some burdock root as well, but my landlady seems to have had waged war successfully on the burdock "weeds" in our back yard... :cry: at least that's the only reason I can think of that there aren't any this year. I found some lus...

Re: Do you use mushrooms?

When I was growing up my parents used to take us on mushroom hunts in the woods; we'd take the mushrooms home and eat them for dinner that night. The only one I got confident of identifying was chanterelles (the golden kind) - they were so totally yummy, absolutely fresh. I can't even imagine eating...

Re: What's in your garden?

I've put my garden to bed... rather, my two gardens. I live in an apartment so I always have a container garden; this year I had thyme, lavender, rosemary, tansy left over from last year that didn't do well, holy basil, marigold, sweet woodruff, and pansies. This year I had a small plot as well, but...

Re: Toothache

My husband had a canker sore recently and found that rubbing St. John's Wort oil on it helped. I had added a bit of cayenne when I made the oil; don't know if that made any difference. And I know that canker sores are different from toothache, but who knows! Couldn't hurt.

Re: Artemesia

I've been falling in love with Artemisia. I first met mugwort twenty years ago, and since then I've discovered what a wide-ranging genus this is. Did you know that Tarragon is Artemisia dracunculus? I didn't! Recently I started to wonder about absinthe, and I extracted Artemisia absinthium in brandy...

Re: Apple cider

I have always found that cider will turn to hard cider (i.e. alcoholic cider) on its own, if you leave it. As long as it doesn't have preservatives in it and hasn't been pasteurised. Try leaving it in a jug with some headspace, and taste it after a week or so.

Re: Herbal Aphrodisiacs

How about aphrodisiacs for those 10 years past menopause?
