Herbalism Resources

My affinity for herbalism is connected to culinary, medicinal and magickal uses. Ayurveda has been my foundation for my culinary and medicinal theoretical practice. I’m building on that with Western herbalism. It makes since because I currently live in the United States. For magick, I include herbs in my ceremonies for the eight pagan sabbats.

Much of the information in the herbalism resources below is for curative care, but there is information for nutritive and preventative care. As a home herbalist, my approach to herbalism is for nutritive and preventative care.

My acupuncturist shared this simple bath salt recipe with me years ago because I needed to relax more. It worked.

Relaxing Bath Salts
1 Cup Epson salt
1 Cup baking soda
16 drops lavender essential oil

Run bath water and add bath salts. Sit in bath for fifteen to twenty minutes. Repeat often when necessary.
