The Hawthorn Berry Hole is exactly as pictured on their website. Great quality, fast shipping. Happy to drink hawthorn everyday now. 5 Hawthorn berries should be soaked in a large glass of water, (use a spoon when the berries become soft), hot water, longer for better color drink. (I say mixing with water is its advantage). I am confident in six months to lower my bad cholesterol and triglyceride.
B.S. I emailed before ordering and asked where the hawthorn berries were grown. They emailed on time and I am very satisfied. Thanks.

They say the veil is thin this time of year. The trees shed their glorious foliage and the remaining sun casts long shadows on the leafy ground. It’s time to give up. It is a period of extreme cold. It is time we recognize the nature of things, and in doing so we must respect death.
A series of major tragedies and natural disasters, as well as the recent death of a friend, have impressed upon me the sacredness of the seasons and the importance of gathering as a healing act. I often write about the benefits of plants. But what about the figurative heart? I am so grateful to work with Mountain Rose Herbs to bring you a message of healing and hope, even when our days and hearts are dark and sorrowful.
Hawthorn Berry Homemade Cordial
Whether you care about the “old ways” and the remnants of ancient spiritual traditions or not, Fall bears the ambiguous face of death and loss in its waning light. The frosts left a ghostly whiteness on the landscape. Trees shed their leaves. Grasses go dormant. Even berries and fruits that spread on branches and vines eventually turn black and fall off. This is the time when the botanical world descends into deep slumber in search of earth’s comfort. A metaphor for death if ever there was one.
Autumn is a time of gathering and giving. Perhaps modern society is so far removed from activities like harvesting and hunting that our species long for a sense of self-sufficiency and fulfillment. Technology, convenience and commerce are making that instinct obsolete. That’s why I notice crazy behaviors – annoying mothers on the playground (in the mirror), distracted fathers, people who drive too fast, people who hoard too many things. Our basic instincts are ignored. It’s foreign and strange, though we don’t really know anything else.
Hawthorn (Crataegus spp.) has a long history of its association with the physical heart. But beyond that the myth and folklore of the hawthorn tells me a lot about this special, if not sacred, tree and its flowers, leaves and berries – even her thorns. There are hundreds of magical texts on the legendary and venerable Hawthorne – some that resonate deep and deep within me.
The hawthorn, also known as the whitethorn, is associated with the ancient Roman Guardia, goddess of Kiel, overseer and guardian of doors and gates. Autumn is like Mother Nature’s great hinge, the threshold between the season of abundance (summer) and the season of starkness (winter). Cardia’s chosen plant partner is the blessed hawthorn. Boughs of hawthorn were hung over the lintel and over a baby’s cradle to provide protection for those living inside. Etymologically, cardia comes from the word cardo – meaning “hinge” but more broadly it refers to the axis around which an object rotates. What is the heart, but on which our life revolves? Perhaps we should learn from the legend of Guardia and protect our metaphorical axis, our hearts with hawthorn…

The Hawthorne story often refers to a magical sleep. It is said that whoever sleeps under a hawthorn or one of its branches will fall into a magical sleep during which they will not age and see no harm. Here I see winter, grief, and sorrow as a great sleep—the hawthorn offering its constant protection to our metaphorical hearts when we are in our darkness.
We collect. It is human nature. We collect food and supplies to feed and protect. We gather together to celebrate and mourn. Collecting, in all its shapes and forms, is part of being human.
But we don’t meet now. Not really. Not anymore. We share spaces, but we don’t always collect in a meaningful way. At least we are rarely fully engaged in the moment. Social media is scrolled, locations are checked, selfies are taken. Our relationship with each other is as fragile as ever. Family vacations are becoming free meals and photo ops – nothing else.
And then life happens—life-changing events, deaths of loved ones, natural disasters. And it takes our breath away. At that time, we will gather. We gather for comfort and reconstruction. We gather to share stories, hugs and warmth. We gather to commemorate a loss or rebuild someone’s home or to celebrate some happy event like a wedding or a baby. These gatherings are very healing. But, often they are isolated incidents.

If I can encourage one thing, it’s to gather with intention. Priority for no reason. Put down your phones, check social media and get involved. Hug tight, smile wide, tell people you love them and you’re lucky to have them in your life. share food or drink; Savor each bite or sip and take it slow. Taste each other.
With an acknowledgment of the fleeting aspects of nature, the mythical virtues of the hawthorn and the importance of collecting – we now turn our attention to a beloved seasonal drink – mulled apple cider. I’ll try to capture the magic I’ve described to elevate this cider from a seasonal range of hawthorn berries and traditional chai spices. Fall offers a harvest of scarlet hawthorn berries, but dried hawthorn berries are also suitable for this recipe. Cinnamon chips, green cardamom pods, cloves, allspice, and black pepper add soul-warming spiciness to radish juice. This malty cider also benefits from a bright note of citrus – easily achieved with fresh or dried orange flavors. Added to unfiltered, preferably organic, apple cider, the smell alone is enough to soothe one’s brittleness, but it’s when partaking of hawthorn mulled cider that really sets the tone. Before serving, I like to dose each mug of cider with a dropper of whole hawthorn extract.
Serve your cider to your guests and loved ones. Think about loss and how to move gracefully through light and darkness. Together. Healing each other with love and affection. Sharing the facilities of food and drink. Mourning, uplifting, celebrating. Because the seasons of nature and life are always changing. May the hawthorn be your guardian in your darkest days, the keel swings quietly and lightness fills your life again.
