It took me a while to choose my plant ally. I thought about an elder tree or rose bush because they would be very easy to visit in my local park. Then I got very in love with herb robert but I could find it only in park frankendael or noordpark and both would be very unpractical (too far to compromise) to me.
I ended up investigating and get very interested in motherwort due to being an aid with anxiety and lowering blood pressure. On a fine foraging walk, one was brought home, grown really tall and lives happily ever since in my kitchen planter. I’ve decided that would be perfect for frequent interaction and mutual care. I have a tincture that it’s almost ready to use made from it, hope it will help! Communicating with the plant (thoughts, words, breathing, taking care of it) brings me inner peace, hope and connection with nature.
