After studying dance in Europe, Julie returned to the United States and graduated from Creighton University. With a desire to expand her knowledge of the arts and spirituality, she graduated from St. John’s University in Collegeville with a Masters in Theology and Liturgical Studies. Over the past twenty years, she has taught high school and college courses, and facilitated workshops on the healing arts while occasionally writing for academic periodicals. Her quest to acknowledge world religions and the desire to expose the similarities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal Source of love in all people.

Rosemary Uses

My trimmed pot of rosemary. Some herbs have been brought inside and she is one of them. I like to cut back to the woody part and dry the tops. By mid-winter she will be filled out again and have a crown of lovely purple flowers while I'll have my bit of summer next to me in the house.

As for the herbal properties...rosemary is found to be analgesic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, and a cerebral stimulant. I've found it as an ingredient in all kinds of body care products and natural remedies. Make yourself a brew and use the liquid as a face wash or hair rinse. Used in the morning, it will add that extra lift in energy throughout the day.
