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 🙂
