For thousands of years and still today, herbs have played an important role in the lives of people all over the world. From the mountains of China to North America, people have utilized plants for their aromatic and medicinal properties.
Making your own herbal remedies is a cost effective, enjoyable, and empowering way to take control of your health. By creating a healthy relationship with wild and/or cultivated plants outside your home, you can begin to understand their potent properties and become more confident along your health journey.
We want to educate and empower you to understand how to incorporate herbs into your daily lifestyle and culinary creations.
For us, the home, and the kitchen especially, is the core of our health care system. Over the years, we have become more empowered to use plants to treat a variety of ailments and to incorporate many plants into the food we eat. By learning to best utilize an array of plants, we have improved the flavor of our meals, created better relationships with the natural world, and improved our families health.
Just like our ancestors, we have implemented various means of creating herbal tonics, tinctures, and home remedies. This means having a variety of herbs and plant material on hand at all times, to better assist any injuries or ailments that come our way. What has started off as our healing journey, has now spread throughout our house and home. From skin care to house cleaners, we have replaced chemical laden products with pure ingredients from the plant kingdom.
