For the last 10 years I have been insanely blessed with the opportunity to study under an extremely talented traditional herbalist. She is not just my guru but she is my soul sister and friend. Last month I got to spend a week studying with her. These moments we have together are incredibly special to me. We spend our days out in the gardens gathering herbs, then head inside to turn them into healing tinctures, lotions, slaves, creams, oils, and teas. Everything I know about healing the body through herbs, I have learned ether from her or from her guidance. I believe God blesses us with special souls who help us see our path in life. She has always shown me my path in traditional herbalism. This is a field I not only enjoy, but I am incredibly passionate about it. To me there is nothing like spending my time lost in gardens, surrounded my mother earths precious gifts. Through working with herbs, I have found a piece of myself. The pictures above are some I captured while on my trip. There are very few places as special to me as this place right here. They say home is where your heart is and a big piece of my heart lives right here with the birds and the bees and the herbs!
