Are you new to the topic of using herbs for heath?

I have practiced herbal medicine for most of my life. I am pursuing a Bachelors in Biology, and I have studied several books over the years, learned from various family members and mentors, and have attended every class and workshop I have been able to afford.

Why are you interested in herbs?

As a child I learned from my family's matriarchs about herbal remedies for colds, stomach aches, rashes, pain relief, and quick fixes for minor burns and scrapes -- some animal friendly ones as well. I have had bouts with different illnesses and always try to go for the non-pharmaceutical alternative.

Have you used herbs for your own health?

Yes! I prepare daily infusions for myself and my husband. I have used various tinctures and floral essences in everyday life. I make natural and organic oils, vinegars, soaps, tea and smoking blends. I have also been using herbal remedies on my pets for years. I work with a rescue and have helped several dogs, cats, birds, small animals and reptiles with natural antiseptics and salves for several skin conditions.

Introduction

I am a writer, lecturer, herbalist, Flower Essence Therapist, and Aromatherapist! I look forward to sharing as much as I can with you! I have also started a Facebook page for such a purpose: www.facebook.com/Her­bsandHealth
