INSPIRED BY NATURE: REBECCA DESNOS

Rebecca Desnos explains why she is inspired by Nature, what she loves about botanical dyeing, and why her work encourages her to slow down. Read more on Geoffrey & Grace...

I’m really excited to share the next instalment of the ‘Inspired By Nature’ series with you today. I first came across this lady on Instagram and just loved the creativity and colours in her feed. She is a natural dyer, who loves to forage for plants. Last year she wrote and self published her first print book. When she’s not dying scarves, fabric and wooden beads, she is experimenting with plants and kitchen waste such as avocado skins, pomegranate skins and tea bags to make dye. She also has an E-book available, which I can throughly recommend. It’s a brilliant guide if you want to try your hand at natural dyeing but don’t know where to start.

Please welcome Rebecca Desnos

INSPIRED BY NATURE: NURTURING KITCHEN

Jo from Nurturing Kitchen tells me why connecting to nature inspires her to slow down and improves her well being

It’s time for the next instalment of the Inspired By Nature series. I am so happy to have this wonderful mama on the blog today. She is a cook inspiring others to nourish themselves and their loved ones through real, plant-based nurturing foods and activities. The food she makes and bakes is beautiful to look at, and instantly makes my mouth water. She manages to get so much colour into her food, and her Instagram feed has me drooling over my phone. I would sure like an invite to dinner.

Please welcome Jo Balfe from Nurturing Kitchen

I am really excited to introduce you to my next guest in the ‘Inspired By Nature’ series. This lady is a traditional apothecary, a distiller, plantswoman and a therapist. She has had a really fascinating life and I have loved hearing more about why she does what she does. Having just opened a ‘bricks and mortar’ shop and therapy room in Lewes, East Sussex, I wanted to find out what led her to this point in her life.

I hope you enjoy reading her story. She has some wonderful insights into how nature can support and provide, in terms of self care. If you would like to live more in tune with the rhythm of the seasons but aren’t sure where to begin, then read on, she offers some brilliant advice.

Please welcome Amanda from A.S Apothecary….
