Intro to Herbalism


What is herbalism? Herbalism is as ancient as life itself. It predates recorded history, oral history, and even human beings. It is the foundation of all other forms of medicine. It is the respectful use of whole plant materials such as leaves, flowers, fruit, seed, stem, bark, root, moss, lichen, seaweed or fungi to support and maintain health but also to prevent, alleviate, or resolve root causes of some of the most chronic dis-ease. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 75-80% of the world’s population still relies on medicinal plant preparations for their primary healthcare needs.

In this introductory class, we will delve into the benefits of herbs for holistic health. We will unpack the foundation of herbal medicine and snippets of its history. We will discuss basic herbal preparations, and you will learn the benefits of five different herbs you can work with at home. Together, we will taste a few herbs while discussing their actions on the body and identify what makes them work.

Each participant will go home with a tea or tincture sample.
