In between all the “R”-ing and as a part of it, I really enjoy the moments we spend in the garden: to touch the earth, to smell the ground, to organize the planting, to sow new herbs and flowers, vegetables and fruits and to collect nature’s little helpers for a green spring cure: Galium, Taraxacum, Malva, Salvia, Plantago,…
Subhanallah, what a gift Allah gave us right in front of the door: those little plants that appear everywhere just like this, that often are banished from gardens or not even recognized at roadsides or on the pathways in big cities, always growing out of nothing, sometimes even in the middle of tarred streets.
I am sure now that these little weeds find their way to those who need them. I am sure that they have the divine order to grow right beside the people who need their special energy. Alhamdulillah!
So we try to identify them now, we collect them, we learn now about their specific healing effects, we use them freshly as teas, lotions and washes and we dry them for the colder seasons, inchaallah.
Books that help us on that learning path:
Maria Treben: “Health from God’s Garden” – “Gesundheit aus der Apotheke Gottes”
Ursel Bühring: “Heilpflanzenjahr”
Susanne Fischer-Rizzi: “Medicine of the earth” – “Medizin der Erde”
Maria Thun: “The biodynamic year” – “Gärtnern mit dem Mond”
“Guide Delachaux des plantes”
“das Ulmer Garten Buch”
