in Natural Medicine5 days ago (edited)
It's been fantastic to see the 7 day Self LOVE challenge posts entered into the FEBRUARY LOVE CHALLENGE - I feel as if the feed is full of gratitude, self care, nourishment and mindfulness, which is just lovely. @danielapevs has taken the reins for the self-love challenge and the winner will win 20 HIVE and up to 500 LOTUS, so she's judging the best one for that. She's also been submitting the best ones to win a HIVE BUZZ #mentalhealthawareness badge, we'll we will be announcing at the end of the month.

Want to Win More?

We are offering 100 HIVE to the win plus 500 LOTUS, offered by @nateonsteemit who generously donated his LOTUS to Natural Medicine to use in contest winnings. We'll distribute this to the best FIVE POSTS.

We've outlined a few ideas for you below - you can choose one, part of one, change one or make one up yourself!

  • What are some 'self love' rituals and why are they important for our health?
  • Cook a vegan Valentine's feast
  • Make a healthy desert fit for your lover
  • Detail an aphrosdesiac herb and how to prepare it as a tincture, balm or tea
  • Roses are traditionally given as a gift to a beloved. How are they related to our health and how might they nourish/benefit us emotionally, spiritually or physically?
  • What does the act of love do for us energetically, and how might we love better?
  • Is love good for health?
  • What herbs or medicines are good for a broken heart?
  • Discuss knowledge of the heart meridian in TCM
  • How can we improve our cariovascular health?
  • Discuss an aspect of the heart chakra

A Few Tips

  • Although we do support Spanish language through two spanish speaking curators, this challenge must only be in English - no Spanish or dual language posts please. If you have already done so, that's okay - we will still accept your entry.
  • Do not refer to the challenge in the title - think of an interesting title to engage people off Hive that might not know about the challenge
  • Don't forget to reblog the latest contest entry post, such as this one!
  • Please comment on at least 5 other #naturalmedicine posts after you make your entry.

For most of our posts, we select one HIVER to be recieve a beneficiary. This time it's @isabelpenas - we loved your post, and we are sorry we didn't get back to you sooner about buying LOTUS. We made a post just for you - try this LINK.

Hey, just an fyi, The "Love for Health" entry was by @bold-n-italics, not me! :)

Can you just be my PA? Oh wait, you already are...

Yeah it's awesome to see so many entries!

😂 Just trying to help out in the community. We anarchists, we do mutual aid. LOL

Thank you so much @naturalmedicine. I feel so happy for that.

Sounds like a great challenge, I toast with some !wine to that and probably an upcoming entry 🍷

Congratulations, @ravenking13 You Successfully Shared 0.200 WINE With @naturalmedicine.
You Earned 0.200 WINE As Curation Reward.
You Utilized 2/2 Successful Calls.


WINE Current Market Price : 1.300 HIVE

For me it would be a double challenge, I have to talk about love only in English. Well, this will help me to keep practicing my lousy English hahaha.

Why no dual language posts, btw? I purposefully started to try and remember to do that because I saw how many Spanish speaking NMers there are. I always appreciate it when someone puts an English translation in their Spanish post.

Thank you very much for the mention, I am currently working on a publication that will be released today.

But I am concerned to read in this post that it will be until the 20th, what happened with the extension until the end of the month? THANK You @naturalmedicine
