Lammas, or Lughnasadh is the pagan sabbat that celebrates planting season and is one of the 3 festivals of the harvest. There are many traditions in a variety of cultures that create with corn husks during this time of year to honor the harvest season. In some northern cultures it was believed that corn husks carried the spirit of the corn and offerings of such would increase the fertility of the land. Corn husks were fashioned into various shapes and dolls were representative of everything from mother earth to the matriarch of the family. Corn husk dolls were created and adorned to be gifted or placed in a sacred space in ones home. Traditionally, the corn husk doll was kept until the following year; when it was burned to release the spirit of the previous year's harvest.
Corn husk dolls are a perfect way to introduce children to the sabbats and to help them understand natures cycles and the wheel of the year.

Sore Throat Spray by Cattail Apothecary
Regular price$ 17.00
Save $ -17.00
A combination of spilanthes, horehound, echinacea and peppermint to help ease sore throat pain and suppress coughing.
Spilanthes is also known as the “toothache plant”, “buzz buttons”, “tingflowers” and “electric daisies” and these names are found to be quite apt upon chewing on one of these strange looking flowers as they excite the nerves and create a very distinct tingling feeling! This buzzing and numbing feeling does translate into tincture form and when sprayed into the mouth it can help ease the pain and itch of a sore throat. Spilanthes also stimulates the salivary glands causing the mouth to water noticeably. This keeps the throat lubricated to cut down on coughing that can further irritate an already sore throat. Added to the mix is horehound, which can help break up phlegm, echinacea, for its antibacterial and antiviral properties and peppermint, for it cooling effect and delicious flavor.
DIRECTIONS: Spray directly into the back of the mouth, toward the throat, as needed.
Packaged in a 2 oz amber glass bottle with spray mister top.
