MINT Mentha piperita infused in sunflower oil.

Fresh, mentally cleansing and helps elevate boredom. I find a fresh mint tea is very refreshing yet calming at the same time. It has a dual purpose: mentally helping to gain clarity and focus and at the same time calming the stomach. I love working with all the different species of mint especially when working abroad. Recently I was working at the Jane Goodall chimpaneze institute in South Africa and I was heartened to find wild mint, which I made into a macerated oil. Some of the chimps I was priveleged to work with self selected mint oil.

I love to cook with the mint infused oil: especially drizzled over new potatoes and added to salads.

NETTLE Urtica dioicainfused in sunflower oil.

Nettle contains a multitude of trace minerals and vitamins: Vitamins A,C, D & B, Iron, sodium, chlorophyll, protein and dietary fibre. Nettles stimulate the circulation and is an excellent blood tonic. In Russia and the Ukraine wilted nettles are a staple fodder crop for horses and cows. My horses love to munch on wilted, almost dried nettles that I harvest from the fields. Lily and Morris not only love the macerated nettle oil they also love my homemade recipe for nettle biscuits.

I cook nettles in a little butter and add them to omelettes. I make pesto sauce from the leaves and add to pasta. Nettles are also a delicious side dish to accompany a main course.

ROSEHIP Rosa caninainfused in sunflower oil.

The hips are a rich source of vitamin C, A, K, thiamine, niacin, riboflavin. Rosehips are excellent for use as a general tonic and serve as a tasty and nutritious treat for animals. During the autumn months my horses and dogs, Lily and Morris love to self select the ruby red hips from the bushes.

During the Second World War the British government encouraged members of the public to forage for rosehips in the countryside and eat them as part of a balanced diet. The country was starved of any fresh fruit due to rationing and rosehips, rich in vitamin C were turned into delicious jams, syrups and when ripe eaten naturally as berries.

In the Autumn I make rosehip syrup to help boost my immune system for the long winter months ahead. Rosehips help support the immune system and animals who are listless and suffering from anaemia.

Parts used: Aerial parts: fresh or dried hips

Actions: Nutritive: digestive system, skin
