Oak: This Issue's Signature Remedy

another sacred species of oak tree

Notice as you enter our sacred oak grove that there are oak leaves on the background of every page in this edition. We believe strongly that Oak is the most powerful remedy for anyone who's struggling with seniorhood or who wants to get even more out of these blessed years of being an elder. That's why we've named it the signature remedy for this issue. The articles linked below will give you an in-depth picture of Oak's properties and why it has been a sacred tree to Indo-European cultures for hundreds of years. Come take a stroll through the sacred grove with us.
