USING LIVING BOTANICAL REMEDIES INVITES US TO HAVE A VERY PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR MEDICINE.
There is nothing more intimate or soul-soothing than planting, growing, tending, watering, harvesting and drying valuable plant medicines right from your garden. Few activities can compare to hiking along and recognizing the abundant varieties of wild medicinal plants with every sweeping glance. Our souls respond when we crush an aromatic leaf between thumb and forefinger and inhale deeply of that green ally’s unique fragrance; it’s a sensation that goes right to the heart.
We are an integrated part of our ecosystem, whether we circulate blood or chlorophyll, we all possess a life force and a love force. It is widely known that plants show emotional responses to external stimuli and modify their behaviors according to environmental perturbations; all living beings are more alike than divergent. Herbs grow to adapt and adjust to their environment, and in the body, herbs are biodynamic and synergistic.
There are gentle herbs that anyone can utilize for a variety of complaints such as insomnia, anxiety, irritability, pain, digestive disorders, common pathogens, immune building and for beauty. There are much more powerful herbs that can treat more chronic ailments and even sophisticated Chinese herbal formulas that can address difficult to treat disorders and create balance in the body when used with wisdom, knowledge, and experience. Become empowered, wise, frugal, and healthier while cultivating an intimate relationship between your deepest self and the rich, intricate tapestry of our natural world.
