October 2011 http://www.crystalcandle-shop.com
Greetings! Autumn has come upon us here rather quickly. The leaves are turning and there is a chill nip in the air. It is at this time that our bodies and spirits start slowing down and become reflective of all we did and learned through the fast paced days of summer. It is this time of reflection the sets the stage for incorporating new teachings and skills into our lives and during winter those new things can become wisdom to pass to the next generation. It is also a time for working on projects such as crafts, sewing, beadwork or what ever craft you do. We look forward to this time of peaceful reflection and rest and hope that each of you finds pleasure in the season also. Blessings!

Helpful Remedies for Cold and Flu Season
By Shelley Lincoln
Here we are again entering the cold and flu season. Keeping ourselves healthy during this season is very important and I’ve found that natural herbal remedies are excellent preventatives as well as gentle treatment for colds and flu. Natural remedies also avoid the negative side effects of pharmaceuticals. I hope the following recipes are helpful for you and your family.
