Welcome to my new blog!! I’m Rainie Dae, herbalist, humanist, healer, avid researcher, spiritual alchemist, free thinker, science nerd and practitioner of natural magick. I’m the founder and owner of Love of Lotus Apothecary. I’ve spent years studying, getting healthy, healing and curing myself and now I’m helping others do the same. I’ve been guided into this amazing career, I truly believe it’s what I’m put on this plant to do, my divine purpose.
Being an avid researcher and science nerd, I spend a huge amount of time researching. I don’t just want to know that a herb can heal an ailment, I want to know HOW it works. I want to know the science behind it. I want to know the chemical properties, how they heal the body, the side effects, the history, the folklore, the magickal properties, who shouldn’t take them, the plant spirits, other herbs and pharma drugs they react with, I want to know EVERYTHING!! Knowledge applied is wisdom. Knowledge is a personal responsibility. You never know everything about anything which is one thing that makes learning fun and exciting for me. I also love to share knowledge which is the reason for this blog.
When I write a post, I want to give you a well rounded perspective. I’ll touch on the science, ancient wisdom, medical uses, folklore, spiritual and magickal uses and will cite my sources. Take the information that resonates with you and leave the rest. Just like there’s no one pant size, food, vitamin requirement or career that fits every human, information is the same way. Take what makes sense to you. We’re all walking different path so different information will resonate with different people.
This is a place or respect for all humans no matter who they are or where they are in life. If someone made it to this blog, they are seeking and growing. We don’t do separation here, we do unity. Any comments that are disrespectful to myself or anyone else who has commented will be ignored. Time and energy are precious and are not to be wasted on haters. No one has to respond to anyone else, it’s all a choice. I am open to new or different info, ideas, thoughts, etc. Sharing in a respectful way and having an open mind is how we all grow wiser. It makes no sense to be mean to someone because their different or don’t fit in your box. Agree to disagree and move on. It’s not important who agrees, what YOU can do with the information that resonates with you is what makes a difference in your life and the planet.
