Above: the definition of Tincturitis: a condition I have ‘suffered’ from for quite a while and which continues to increase with no end in sight. (The pictured tincture is with fresh, wildcrafted cleavers).
My Instagram account has a few more posts with these ‘wordifications’.
Wordifications? That’s my term for making up words. This is another affliction I have had for years and something I have only relatively recently come to terms with. Making up words happens a lot while I am working (many botanical ingredients seem to want to chat and some can even be quite vocal about providing input and inspiration).
I have sometimes wondered if this kind of thing is more commonly found in people who speak more than one language. I will sometimes get ‘stuck’ between languages and suddenly a brand new term will present itself out of the blue.
If you are a word-maker-upper too, I’d love to hear what your thoughts are on the matter!
