Hi! I’ve been working a lot lately on getting the nuts and bolts tightened on this website and scheduling in-person classes (my favorite – yay!) in the Denver area. It’s been a long time coming, but it’s all happening! I’ll be offering classes on Herbs for Beginners, Herbal Immunity, and Infused Oils & Herbal Salves in the next few months, which I’m very excited about.

I was looking back on a post I wrote several months ago about How To Create A Bad-Ass Herbal Scrapbook, and I thought that a few more resources might be handy – so I made you some 🙂

Firstly, I think the vocabulary of herbalism can be a little daunting at first. We use a lot of words to describe herbal actions and dosing patterns that aren’t really part of everyday conversation for most people. Enter: this little infographic to help you sort it all out. Pin it on your Pintrest or print out a copy of the PDF for your Materia Medica book.

Milkweed Herbarium's Guide To Herbal Actions

Secondly, I’d like to give you an idea of some herbs to get to know. Here is a list of my top 10 most essential. For this list, I tried to include a little bit of everything – some immune, some digestive, some first-aid, some nervous system, etc. These are solid basics to have around at all times. Again, feel free to pin it or print the PDF for your notebook 🙂

Milkweed Herbarium's 10 Essential HerbsOne of the projects I have been working on is an eBook about one of my favorite topics, herbal tea blending. I really enjoyed putting this eBook together, and I plan to create a lot more of them in the future – especially for those who don’t live in the Denver area, or whose schedules don’t allow for in-person class time. That being said, if you’d like a free copy of my first eBook, just sign up for the Milkweed Herbarium emailing list.

What fascinates you most  about herbal medicine? What are you most eager to learn?
