Introduction to Herbs

Herbs have been the "green medicines" of the Earth since time began. Their gentle ways are easy for us to absorb into our body, mind, and spirit. When we take herbs internally, they nourish us deep inside.

When we become familiar with herbs, a rapport is felt and they become like old friends. As you begin your herbal journey, start with a few herbs and experience the herb's taste, smell, and growing habits. When you invoke all your senses in learning about herbs, they will awaken memories of a time when humankind was in tune with the healing ways of the plant kingdom. Try some herbs you are already familiar with, such as chamomile or rosemary. 

Herbs function in gentle and holistic ways. Herbs can help us by:
  • Providing many nutrients that are easily absorbed such as vitamins, minerals, and proteins
  • Helping the body do the work of healing
  • Not suppressing the symptoms
  • Not accumulating in the body like most petrochemical medicines
  • Healing gently from the inside out leaving the body stronger
Herbs are not a replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. If you are unfamiliar with how to use an herb, ask you herbalist or healthcare professional before using the herb.
