Friday Roundup - May 6, 2016

What I've been reading, writing, thinking about and indulging in this week.

Rowdy Lamb Herb: Denise and I are focusing on SEX all month long on TCMTalk. In doing some research, I was delighted to find this hilarious list of synonyms for yin yang huo (Epimedium), a renowned aphrodisiac: "Epimedium, also known as barrenwort, bishop's hat, fairy wings, horny goat weed, rowdy lamb herb, randy beef grass or yin yang huo, is a genus of flowering plants in the family Berberidaceae." The list is from Wikipedia, read more about yin yang huo here.

Balancing Bath: do you use epsom salts in the bath? I love making different bath salt combinations, and this article has lots of great ideas - including vanilla bean, which I'm making right now! Yum.

Mama's Day for Everyone: Mothers' Day can be a great chance to celebrate the mothers in our lives - but lots of factors can complicate that celebration. is a project of Strong Families, with a series of free e-cards created by artists that celebrate the diversity and strength of all families. I look at them every year.

Have a great weekend!
