Herbalism Healing

When I began learning about natural remedies 20 years ago, I was introduced to a world of herbs and healing that was wonderful for my heart and soul.  The most important thing I learned about healing and herbs is that Mother Nature will always be there for support.  Once you learn about wild crafting and how to heal, be well, and survive, herbal natural remedies will always be able to take good care of you.  Wonderful healing herbs like mustard, tomatoes, chamomile, ginger, dandelion, eucalyptus, cinnamon, and garlic are ancient healing herbs that have been growing wild for centuries and will continue to grow wild for many more centuries.

The best way to take good care of yourself and be self-sufficient with your self-care is to put your trust in Mother Nature.  I write about this a lot because I have complete trust in Mother Nature's healing medicine cabinet.  I really do walk my walk.  I say this with humble love, not to brag, but I have not taken any pills in 30 years and I will always be a holistic herbalist.  I won't say how bad allopath medicine is because I express this in all my blogposts.  I will say, however, that for every ailment, there is a wonderful healing herb that can and will help you feel better.  I am not a certified naturopath, though I wish I had gotten certified, but I have more than 30 years worth of knowledge and personal life experience to recommend natural healing herbs for all health needs.   As the desire for wise healing natural medicine increases, as well as the wise understanding of the potential danger of using "slash and burn" practices, people will begin to understand the strength and potency of healing herbs and grassroots holistic medicine and they will use ancient sage wisdom.  It is for this reason alone that developing a strong healthy relationship with Mother Nature and your body and understanding your body is so crucial.

It is much easier to understand and recognize an ingredient like chamomile or peppermint than propylene glycol or PEG (polyethylene glycol).   A very favorite expression among the health and wellness community is "if in doubt, do without".  Please keep it simple and do your health a caring loving favor.  Trust Mother Nature and let her take good loving caring nurturing care of you.

I'd like to share a delicious herbal tea recipe my dear husband and I enjoy that always comforts us and helps us feel better when we feel under the weather.

Mint Ginger Lemon Tea
In a hot cup of water, brew or steep 1 tsp. fresh mint leaves, rinsed, or a caffeine-free organic mint tea bag, add 1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, peel removed, rinsed, and 1 tsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice.  Stir gently for a a couple minutes to allow the herbs and lemon to mix well and create a delicious aromatic flavor.  Depending on how strong you want it, allow it to steep for 10 minutes for extra potent strength or 5 minutes for a little milder and weaker.  I personally enjoy it nice and strong.

Enjoy, feel better, stay well.
Much Love, Peace, Healing Light, Gratitude, Blessings,
