Everything is Medicine

P1010084Smelling Cowboy’s Deoderant (California Sage)

Today Olivia Chumacero led a workshop in LASHP on native plants. I learned that California Sage can be spread upon your skin to protect you from Poison Oak! When I asked her if poisonous plants always grew near there antidotes she said, “I don’t say the word poisonous, because it promotes fear. There are plants everywhere that balance each others energy.”
Beautiful.
