Look mama! We’re in our first U.S. physical store front 🥳! If you’re in Austin, Texas stop by Fresh Plus Hometown on West Anderson Lane where you can now find our Golden Shea Butter, Goddess Glow Butter and Cocoa Butter Dream. Not in Austin? No worries, you can shop our online store and we’ll ship directly to you. www.flowersandmoondust.com

What many of you don’t know is that Flowers & Moondust is a one woman operation. I (Toni) have the support of my amazing family + friends but the day-to-day operational work and creative firepower is all me. Each day I work to fulfill customer and wholesale orders, answer emails, create informational newsletters, maintain a robust social media presence, liaise with our amazing local makers in Ghana, package products, etc.

Back in June, we celebrated our one year anniversary and although I wanted to make noise about it on socials, truth is, I was exhausted so I celebrated with unrestricted deep, do-not-disturb mode sleep. It was great and I regret nothing. Haha.

Seeing Flowers & Moondust in our first U.S. store today brought me such joy as the needle is being pushed in the right direction even if it’s only a little bit. Meaningful work takes time to establish and I’m in this for the long haul. I hope to one day have Flowers & Moondust be able to sustain me full time and the local artisans I represent and allow me to hire a phenomenal team dedicated to celebrating African holistic wellness.

You can continue to support me and Flowers & Moondust by making a purchase or donating directly via PayPal.

I’d like to say thank you to Susie, Parker and Averey (who work at Fresh Plus at the Anderson branch) for giving me an opportunity to be featured in stores.

Lastly, I know y’all want to see my face more here and interact with me. I hear you and it’s coming. Just please continue to be patient with me and understand I’m doing my best to show up fully. Thank you.

All my love,
Toni

Superfood spotlight! Today we’re taking a closer look at tigernuts! 🕵🏾‍♀️🧐⠀

What are they? Despite its name, tigernuts are not a nut but a tuber (think sweet potatoes), making them suitable for people with nut allergies. ⠀

Tigernuts can be eaten raw and have a naturally sweet flavor profile. It’s high in resistant starch which helps you stay full longer and regulates your digestive system. Tigernuts acts as a prebiotic and is a great source of plant-based protein, potassium, magnesium, and vitamins! ⠀

Our Tigernut Powder is sourced from a local organic farmer in Ghana, West Africa! It’s finely ground and it’s perfect for smoothies, juices, oatmeal, pancakes/waffles, baked goods and more. ⠀

Our community member, Emefa Kugblenu, wrote this poignant article on supporting vulnerable members of our community during this pandemic. Her article specifically speaks to the impact of the coronavirus safety measures on the women who operate market stands (essential workers) at the Nakasero Market in Kampala, Uganda. ⠀

As countries begin to strategize responses to the economic fallout it is important to protect and support people at all levels so we recover faster and stronger. ⠀

With all that's happening right now, it is important to lean into community and self-care. I will speak more about our social climate and what we are doing to create spaces of recovery/healing but today I want to highlight this phenomenal woman, Jacent Wamala. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Amongst many things, Jacent is a marriage and family therapist who focuses her efforts on helping Black women step into their full light. Jacent herself has overcome her own struggles. At 29, she paid off $90k in debt and gained a better understanding of how financial literacy and freedom can impact our well-being. Her dedication to her work and to helping others deserves a spotlight. ⁠⠀

Jacent where she discusses her self-care routine, finances, and traveling back to her ancestral homeland, Uganda. Make sure to follow and support her work.

In this stressful time, I am leaning into my health and well-being with an emphasis on nutrition (the kitchen and I have become best friends!). I am eating more greens, sipping on herbal teas, and experimenting with our African superfoods so that I can share more delicious (and accessible) recipes with you.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I'd like to offer one of the first books I read on holistic healing that served as a gateway for me to ask questions about holistic health and access to quality health services, specifically for black women. I appreciate how engaging this book is and that it requires focus and to be in the moment. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It is important for me to balance all of the anxiety-inducing news with grounding and healing activities and reading this text full of useful ancient wisdom does that for me. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What activities are you engaging in to stay calm and grounded? How are you taking care of your overall well-being, mind, body, and spirit? Comment below.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Also, I will be sharing more books, affirmations, recipes, and healing/grounding activities via our newsletters so be sure to sign up if this type of knowledge is of interest to you. 🌍❤️🌿

Try this herbal tonic for respiratory health and an immune booster. It's an antioxidant + anti-inflammatory powerhouse! ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Ingredients: ⁠⠀
🌿Turmeric ⁠⠀
🌿Ginger ⁠⠀
🌿Thyme ⁠⠀
🌿Lemon juice⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Bring the tea to a simmer, turn off the heat and let it steep for about 10-15mins. Pro tip: If you would like a stronger ginger flavor, blitz the ginger in a small amount of water in your blender and add to the tea. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You can also add a bit of honey or stevia to sweeten if you'd like. Don't forget to close your eyes and breathe while you enjoy your herbal tea blend.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you want more herbal tea recipes, I'm creating an herbal tea guide that will go out to our newsletter subscribers on Sunday. It will include more herbs, superfoods, and recipes to keep your immune system in top shape. Stay safe! ⁠⠀
