Winter offers us this gift of rest and renewal, a time where we can begin new passions, practices and daily rituals. It is our hope, that you too, take this special time of year to embrace your dearest dreams and celebrate the beauty within.

Gentle snows and sweet bird song. We love how these sweet moments in the winter garden remind us to take deep breaths, slow down, and allow ourselves the spaciousness to be present in the moment. Taking it in with every sense of our being. The feeling of the crisp air on our cheeks, the smell of sweet snow, the sound of a settled winter garden ~ the sweet moments the garden offers us this morning.
The world of flowers with its extraordinary repertoire of vibrant color, beautiful intricate patterns, and alluring scent brings more than a touch of paradise to our earthly lives. It also brings the possibility of healing on both physical and non-physical levels of existence. ~ Anne McIntyre
Recently, as with much of New England, we’ve been waking up to bitter cold temperatures. On these crisp mornings, we light the wood stove and start a pot of our comforting Ashwagandha Golden Milk. The warming spices of ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, and turmeric in this comforting cup help ignite our Angi, our digestive fire, warming us from the inside out and supporting healthy digestion. The addition of adaptogenic ashwagandha helps support healthy immune function; perfect for the ups and downs of the winter season. ❄️ What are you some of your favorite warming herbal beverages? ❄️🌿❄️ Recipe link in Bio. #herbalbeverage #ashwagandha #goldenmilk
Our Elderflower Creme is made in small batches to ensure freshness and quality. Our luxurious and elegant face and body crèmes are delightfully reminiscent of our gardens. They are some of the purest cremes on the market as they are free of any harsh chemicals or preservatives.
Love by the way you walk. the way you sit, the way you eat. This world very much needs love. ~Thich Nhat Hanh
In Avena's garden, we create flower essences by placing the flower in a small glass bowl filled with spring water. I prefer to collect the flowers early in the morning when flowers feel most alive. We place the bowl in a protected place in the garden for a few hours and let the sun's light infuse the flowers' healing qualities into the water. Many of the flower essences we create are blended into our products. 🌸 Flower essences act as catalysts to reawaken the natural life force within us. They support one's ability to transform limiting emotions and attitudes into more life-affirming ways of being. 🌼 Around the world, herbalists and flower essence practitioners make #floweressences. 🌿 I wish to encourage you to directly connect with flowers, wherever you live and observe, listen, and feel what the flower is communicating with you. Trust your intuition. Your own direct experience with flowers will be your greatest guide. ~Deb
