Grounded Goodwives Series #3

By popular demand, Ehris Urban & Velya Jancz-Urban, the mother/daughter duo known as the Grounded Goodwives, return to Atwater Memorial Library! (Virtually!)

Fa-la-la-la… yikes! 

Victorians may have been strict with their morals, but they also had a pretty wicked sense of humor. Children boiled in teapots, dead robins, and a mouse riding a lobster aren’t images we see today on Christmas cards. And just wait until you hear about the parlor game, Snapdragon! In Victorian times, this – and more – was all far for the course… 

Harvest the needles, twigs, and bark from your balsam fir and use it all year long to soothe and heal a variety of ailments – including relieving chest congestion, soothing sore throats, reducing anxiety, and inducing sleep. If you’re like Ehris and Velya and don’t put up a Christmas tree, you can still reap the medicinal benefits by wildcrafting or buying some balsam fir!

*Be sure you know the source of your tree prior to using its needles, twigs and bark. Many tree farms use pesticides.*
