Foundations of Home Herbalism
“What else do you think we should stir into the pot on this conversation about Foundations of Home Herbalism?”
Recently I got this question:
“Kami, what is home herbalism? Is it kind of something like you use garlic and lemon for colds instead of a decongestant, or what exactly does home herbalism mean?”
Hmmmmm, good question. What does this term that I use all the time actually mean? You won’t find it in Wikipedia…. (I looked….).
So, I shot a video about this amazing home herbalism journey we are on and talk about what I think goes into the mix as you grow your home herbalist skills.
Of course, these aren’t the only things that you need to have in place, but after looking back on my personal experience of having gone from not ever even having heard the word holistic until I was about 23 years old……AND watching thousands of my students and how they have successfully become comfortable with their home herbalist skills, here is what I came up with….
Of course, this isn’t the end-all list and ultimately what I want to do is get the wheels turning on this conversation…
I love this living, breathing craft of creating with the plants and the beautiful healing art of home herbalism.
Scroll down and leave me a comment. Let me know what you think about these 5 foundations of home herbalism and what else do you think we should stir into the pot in this conversation about Foundations of Home Herbalism?
Hello I’m Kami, Welcome to Living Awareness!
I believe every family needs to have someone on board with a working knowledge of natural remedies if you want to take care of your family’s health for real.
When I was growing up, natural remedies was not a mainstream concept like it is now, in fact, you are going to be surprised that I never even heard the word natural remedy until I moved out of the house!
In my early 20’s I met someone by chance that told me about holistic health and herbal medicine. I wondered why nobody had talked to me about it before and had a voracious appetite to learn everything I could.
Now, 30 years later I've helped thousands of people demystify the world of herbal medicine and become empowered in using herbal self-care in their home to prevent illness, take care of common ailments and protect their health naturally.
For 20 years I've had a clinical herbal practice connecting people with plants and their wellness. I've developed and taught herbal curriculum for UCSF School of Nursing and the Integral Health Master’s Degree Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies.
Stick with me! You’ll learn awesome herbal self-care, get inspired to be more self-sufficient in your health care and nourish a deep love for the herbs and how to use them, knowing you are doing the very best you can to care for your wellness.
