How to Get Started Using Herbs in Your Daily Life

  • Have you ever discovered the medication you’ve been told to take for years is probably killing your liver?

  • Are you tired of needing an over the counter sleep aid every single night just to be able to sleep…..Then feeling groggy and out of it the next morning?

  • Are you sick and tired of having to over-caffeinate yourself just to stay awake during the day?

  • Do seasonal allergies make your life unbearable?

  • Wouldn’t you just love to know what to do for colds and flu symptoms…naturally?

  • How about the best ways to stay healthy?

  • Do you love plants, and know there’s something to their magic that can help your health….but you don’t know where to start?

  • Are you afraid that you are going to end up on 20 prescription medications as you age…and you’re terrified of this?

You guys! This was me for so many years!

You see, I wasn’t one of those fortunate herbalists who got to grow up learning how to use herbs at my Granny’s knee. Nope. Not at all.

Even though I was obsessed with health and fitness for decades, herbalism was completely beyond my knowledge…until I happened across Rosemary Gladstar’s book, Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner’s Guide.

My WHOLE world changed because of that book.

I became obsessed with learning more about our plant world, natural remedies, natural health, and things I could do for us in our every day lives to keep us healthy and well.

My passion now is to make learning about herbs and natural health accessible to anyone who wants it and needs it. That’s one of the reasons I started this blog, as a matter of fact!

I’ve written a series about How to Get Started Using Herbs that will help you get going on your own herbal journey. I’ve got the links below for you!

And as you learn, I promise, you’ll want to learn even more.

But maybe you’re ready to jump right into the herbal student world right now?

Take a look at my course, The Confident Herbalist: A Guide to Home Herbalism. I created it to give the beginner to herbalism and plant medicine a good foundation while helping you fast-track by making your own remedies…the very same ones I use in my own home!

If you’re not ready for an actual herbal course, that’s ok!

Consider joining The Confident Herbal TRIBE, a community of students who learn these valuable lessons with me each month:

  • everything about a specific herb in a deep and profound way

  • create hands-on projects using that herb, following along with me on video

  • watch Live Q&A sessions every week (replays available)

  • enjoy a complete eBook about the herb with more recipes to try,

  • AND get an additional herbal lesson each month on a general topic to help you grow your herbal knowledge a month at a time.

Best of all? The community of supportive and kind herbal students we’ve created. The culture in this group is just incredible!

You don’t have time, you say?

Honestly, you don’t have time NOT to start learning. I wish I had begun my journey back when I was in my twenties! I could have left an herbal legacy to my children.

But I didn’t know what I didn’t know back then.

YOU don’t have to let this be you.

I’m 55 years old as I write this, and Mr. V. and I have not had to take an Rx or OTC medication in nearly 10 years….because IF we need it, I make it for us.

And that has evolved over years of experimenting, learning, doing, reading, and study with some amazing teachers.

So, join me today! Start your own experimenting, learning, doing, reading, listening, and study today! You won’t be sorry! In fact, it’s addicting and fun!

Learning how to become an herbalist and grow your traditional skills is learning that can be done even in the margins of your life….
