Hi I’m Becky! I’m a natural living expert, herbalist, gardener and mum living on our ethical farm in Northern Ireland. I came across natural remedies, slow living, foraging, when I was diagnosed with hashimotos hypothyroidism and realised I needed to reconnect back to nature and learn how to nourish myself from within. Since then I have studied herbalism and natural skincare from Chestnut Herbs, The Herbal Academy and Rosemary Gladstar as well as extensive self study (aka hello book addiction!) This blog is all about sharing the joy of living a slow and natural life, with recipes, seasonal living guides and of course links to the Nature and Nourish Podcast as well as my regular gardening tips from BBC Radio 2!I hope that you also enjoy reading and joining in on the conversation! There are new blog posts, podcasts, slow living vlog every week, and a monthly newsletter too. x
