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.
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 🙂
One 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.
