FINALLY-I perfected 100% fresh ground spelt grain artisan bread- only took a few years😆
These got a tad too dark but were SOOO delicious!
I grind fresh spelt grain for the flour and used my Electrolux bread bowl and mixer for the beginning.
2 tbs fine sea salt
2 tsp yeast
3 tbs raw honey
2 cups of room temp water
4-5 cups spelt flour
In the mixer, stir together the flour, salt and yeast.
In a cup mix together the water and honey until combined.
My mixer has a dough hook and I knead it in the mixer for approximately 4 to 5 minutes until everything comes together and is a slightly sticky dough after adding the water and honey.
Use more flour as needed......
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit in a warm room for 6 hours or so.
When the first rise is done, put two cast iron pots or pans in the oven at 500 degrees F.

1. Relieving stiff joints and joint pain from arthritis
Copper jewelry is helpful in reducing the symptoms of arthritis. You can easily get bracelets and other jewelry used to cure the condition. When wearing a bracelet, tiny amounts of copper rub off and on to the skin where it is absorbed and can help to rebuild cartilage and ease inflammation. While some believe this is simply a placebo effect, research is ongoing.
2. Helpful in wound healing
Copper is one crucial mineral that plays a vital role in the healing process, to make sure wounds heal better and faster. It is a cofactor in the enzymatic reactions that cause endothelial growth, an important factor in the healing of tissue. Wearing copper jewelry supports the circulatory system and the immune system, helping the body to move white blood cells to the site of infections and promote healing.
3. Essential in the production of collagen
This essential nutrient plays a considerable role in collagen synthesis, as well as myelin, hemoglobin, and melanin synthesis. Copper also protects the myelin sheath that surrounds the nerves, and is actively involved in the elastin production processes. Elastin is the connective tissue element that maintains the flexibility of the skin. Many people who wear copper jewelry report that their skin feels firmer, tighter and more youthful.
4. Proper growth of various body tissue and organs
Copper is important for healthy and normal growth of the human body. It is quite helpful in the protection of the nervous, cardiovascular, and skeletal tissue and organs. Copper deficiencies have been associated with growth defects in children. Investing in a copper anklet for your child is a safe way to increase the levels of copper within the body and potentially provide the valuable growth benefits associated with this essential element.
5. Boosting the immune system
The mineral is a great immunity builder, which assists in the absorption of iron and in turn helps prevent anemia. This will also allow the body to defend itself much better, and heal itself faster. Wearing a copper ring, bracelet or necklace helps your body to fight off free radicals and remain healthy even during troublesome cold and flu seasons.
6. Helpful in energy production
Copper helps in the synthesis of the energy storehouse of our bodies – adenosine triphosphate. Adequate copper supply in our bodies will ensure that we have enough fully accessible and functional energy, to let us get through the day without feeling tired or lethargic. Simply wearing a copper bracelet or anklet can boost energy levels without the need to consume caffeine or other stimulants.
Copper also prevents premature aging and pigmentation of eyes and hair. It stimulates the brain and reduces cholesterol levels in the body. Investing in a collection of copper jewelry can help you to enjoy all these benefits while looking stylish and sophisticated for any occasion.

Did you know?
Linen has a frequency of 5,000.
Wool has a frequency of 5,000.
According to this study, the human body has a signature frequency of 100, and organic cotton is the same – 100. The study showed that if the number is lower than 100, it puts a strain on the body. A diseased, nearly dead person has a frequency of about 15, and that is where polyester, rayon, and silk register.”

The health benefits of spelt may include its ability to help regulate metabolism, aid in the creation of sex hormones, increase circulation, build strong bones, improve the immune system, boost the digestive function, and lower blood sugar and you get all the nutrients when you grind it fresh.
Spelt is a good source of calcium, fiber,magnesium, selenium, zinc, iron, and manganese. It has vitamin E and B-complex vitamins (especially niacin).
Choose Matte or slightly glistening baked formula with jojoba oil, rosemary, lavender, thyme and green tea and adds gorgeous luminosity while it warms your skin tone.
The Mattes are not as glistening.
They are on the lighter/ softer side and are great for winter warmth or summer sun kissed. Soft swirl tones can be blended and stay true to color and look like a natural sun-kissed or rosy skin. Baked formulas leave moisture in the product making it look bright and not pasty.
Most last over a year!

What is this serum?
It’s like giving yourself a mini peel at home🙌
Its applied directly to the skin, and the sugar cane acid slowly breaks up the “glue” holding the top layer of dead skin cells together, allowing them to be removed and revealing the newer, smooth skin underneath. Because they also penetrate deeper into the skin, they can result in firmer skin by thickening it. It may also boost collagen production, which leads to the appearance of plumper, more youthful skin.
Lastly it’s smooths scars and helps with breakouts.

Let’s talk collagen- how to increase it and what to use to improve your skin-
Horsetail is one of the oldest plants on the planet. The hollow stems and shoots of horsetail are a rich source of naturally occurring calcium, magnesium, potassium and other valuable nutrients (including silica crystals). Many of the medicinal properties of horsetail can be attributed to its high silica content, which is easily absorbed by the human body.
Silica is an essential trace mineral that plays an important role in the development, strengthening and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. Silica also restores weak connective tissues in blood vessels, cartilage, tendons and in collagen — the body glue that helps hold our skin and muscle tissues together.
Gynostemma contains over 80 different saponins (gypenosides) compared to the 28 found in ginseng. As well as these saponins, gynostemma is a natural antioxidant and a rich source of healthy vitamins and minerals. Many people suggest that gynostemma is one of the best adaptogens found in nature, also referred to as biological response modifiers.
Nettles contain a high amount of calcium, silica and sulfur, making it an excellent source to help boost collagen receptors.
Not only does nettle leaf help in controlling hair loss, but it may help in hair growth. Nettle leaves are rich in vitamins A, B1, B5, C, D and E. It also contains flavonoids, essential aids and proteins, nourishing the scalp and helping promote healthy and shiny hair.
Calendula has been used since ancient times for its phenomenal abilities to restore skin, assist in wound healing and activate collagen receptors to increase the glow. Calendula flowers have long been employed in folk therapy, and more than 35 properties have been attributed to decoctions and tinctures from the flowers. (Cherry Picks Sugar cane Serum)
A super-food for the skin and body, Ashwagandha is effective and promotes a healthy skin and lifestyle. Ashwagandha is rich in bio-active principles such as withanolides, saponins and alkaloids which deeply cleanse, moisturize and calm the skin.
Another way to help your body produce collagen is through vitamin C:
Oranges, red peppers, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and strawberries are all rich in vitamin C.
Other foods that help produce collagen are:
Homemade bone broth: find my recipe here:
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, found in the bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. It is the substance that holds the body together. Collagen forms a scaffold to provide strength and structure. Endogenous collagen is natural collagen, synthesized by the body.
