Spiced Elderberry & Honey
Traditionally elderberries have been used in farmhouse kitchens for general wellness.
Elderberry has a well documented history of use in folk remedies. In the Middle Ages elderberry was considered a Holy Tree, capable of restoring good health, keeping good health, and as an aid to longevity. Hippocrates referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest”. All parts of the elderberry plant are considered a valuable healing plant in many folk and native medicine
Elderflowers contain flavenoids and rutin, which are known to improve immune function, particularly in combination with vitamin “C.” The flowers also contain tannins, which account for its traditional use to reduce bleeding, diarrhea, and congestion.
Elderberry was used to treat the flu epidemic in Panama in 1995 and the German Commission E (German FDA) approved elderberry for treatment of coughs, bronchitis, fevers, and colds. Though it has been known for centuries as a remedy to help treat some illnesses and boost the immune system, only recently has there been studies to show us the possibilities of the elderberry in modern day medicine.
About Rebecca Ahern, owner of Axiom Lux
Axiom Lux, formally Rebecca Ahern: Apothecary & Healing, evolved from humble home remedies and Reiki that I was using for my family’s wellbeing, to a thriving holistic business. All because of deep love and a need from the community. Friends and family were requesting my goods and services, demanding to pay me and recommending me to others. Slowly, over 7 years, with pure wonder and amazement from myself, I have grown to have many wonderful and supportive clients. I am a self proclaimed crazy, crunchy, healing hippy, in love with life’s journey and this amazing Earth that we all share.
I love to laugh really hard, and when not working on my business, I spend most of my time barefoot, cooking, singing and dancing, being a mama to my busy boys Xavier and Pax and wife to my very patient husband, Dan.
I am a practicing Reiki Master Teacher and Intuitive Healer. My motivation to stay the path of Enlightenment are my family and all of those still wandering in darkness. To further my mission, I have partnered with three women owned businesses: Mrs. Moonstone, Ordinary Pioneer and Life; No Filter. Together we are Healing Practitioners at The Gathering Place and stand to support you, allowing a safe space to release your burdens and step forward on your journey.
I aim to be a Beacon of Light with the goal to help you find your way back. Back to who you were before you felt you had to wear a façade to feel adequate. You are already whole. Please check out my services to see a full list of upcoming classes and events.
