How and Why Herbs Work
Cultivating a Deeper Relationship with Our Herbal Allies
The more we touch, taste, smell, practice with and experience an herb, the more it will unveil it's own particular qualities, it's teachings and it's healing benefits to us.....
Exploring, one herb at a time...
Enjoying that time to deepen your relationship while experiencing what magic unfolds when you invite the herb into your home, your diet and your heart! 🌿
"The proper usage of a plant or herb, during which its true power is released, implies a communion with it. The plant, when we are one with it, will vitalize our nervous system and invigorate our perception. This means giving value to a plant as something sacred, as a means of communion with all nature. Each plant, then, like a mantra, will help to actualize the potential of cosmic life of which it is a representative." from The Yoga of Herbs by Dr. David Frawley and Dr. Vasant Lad
How Herbs Works
Some herbs calm while some stimulate. Some herbs are heating in property while some are naturally cooling. Some herbs move energy outwards stimulating circulation, some move energy upwards stimulating awakening and some move energy downwards supporting elimination. Some herbs have special potency to support the other herbs they are taken with.
