The wisdom of using the medicinal herbs of our Earth has always been near and dear to my heart. My focus of herbal study has been Western botanical medicine. Plants make the energy they need for existence directly from the light of the sun (photosynthesis). Thus, they are highly evolved forms of consciousness that have much to offer us on all levels of existence: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Herbs can be prepared for medicinal delivery in many different ways: from tinctures and teas to suppositories and salves.
