I decided this would be a good place to keep a log of herbs I am trying out on myself. That being because I am prone to quirky allergies and it's better to know what makes me sneeze ahead of time before I blend it with a dozen other things and drink it down.
And I'm doing that because Vyviane loaded me down with a bunch of fertility and "women's health" type herbs, because I asked. And that is because I'm both perimenopausal and completely insane.
Anyway, lady's mantle. Drank a pot of it last night, and some more this morning. No immediate ill effects though it MIGHT have something to do with my clogged up nose. Or I might just be catching a cold. This science stuff is hard. It also didn't make my body go "hot damn I want some more!" either.
Verdict: Meh, possibly sneezy.
In other news, I'm feeling a bit stuck. As in, my life is both kind of awesome and kind of irritating, I can see a bunch more awesome things that I could be doing if things were slightly different, and I'm in a bit of a holding pattern. My bills are getting paid but I'm not getting ahead. I'm getting published regularly but still haven't finished the edit of my book. That sort of thing.
I have a suspicion that I know what to do about all that, but my taste for lighting myself on fire has waned of late. Comfort will do that to you. I guess I'm going to have to put on my fire retardant big-girl panties and get to steppin'.
