looking for practice clients for herb school

I am looking for a few folks who would like to receive a free health assessment from a budding herbalist. I have been working with medicinal plants since 2007 and am currently in my second year of the School of Traditional Western Herbal Medicine. I just learned a great in-depth way to do a client intake and need to practice it at least twice before June 20th. Are you interest in taking a closer look at your health? Do you have any current illnesses that you would like to get some help with? Would you like learn which herbs and lifestyle changes could best support you in your next step of healing? Do you suffer from chronic aches, pains, allergies or digestive troubles? Wholistic Herbalism looks at the entire person, not just the symptoms that are presenting themselves at the moment.

Business Cards

  I’m totally excited. I just got my new business cards in the mail. These were ordered on a whim late at night after I was inspired in the shower to just make something really simple.

Cottonwood Ghee

what did I do with my pound of Cottonwood buds? I made it into amazing, golden Cottonwood Ghee. Cottonwood, or Balsam Poplar, buds are very resinous. They contain salicytates which are anti- inflammatory similar to aspirin and aromatic resins which act are antimicrobial, increase blood flow to the surface of the skin and promote healing. The oil or salve can be used for sprains, arthritic joints, burns. It is helpful for both hot and cold pains and swelling. “The salve has been used for burns by Native Americans and Europeans for millenia. It lessens pain, keeps the surface antiseptic, and also¬† stimulates skin regeneration” ( Michael More, Medicinal Plants of the Pacific West) Last harvest I made lots of Cottonwood tincture which is amazing for chest colds so this year I aimed for oil and salve. I did two different recipes based on Michael Moore’s instructions. First, I’ll share the one that went well even though I did it second.
