Study tips for herbalists

starcrystal-healing:

A lot of people ask me about how to start learning about herbs and which courses are good, so I decided to put this together for you guys!

Resources

Tips

  • Check out local plant societies to see what activities they have planned. Some of them offer free plant walks that will help you to get to know your local plants
  • Start experimenting with your (safe) local weeds first. For many of you, this means sorrel, dandelion, plantain, violet leaf, and ground ivy.
  • Get your warnings and safety information from reputable books and herbalists, not social media (tumblr). There are many rumors on this site about what is and isn’t poisonous, please don’t believe everything you read!
  • Keep a few materia medica books on hand to check for contraindications and safety instead. My go-to books for checking whether an herb is okay with me are located in the recommended books post above
  • Pick 1 herb a month to really focus on. Keep in mind that you can do a lot with a few herbs, some of them have dozens of uses
  • Learn about your herbs by tasting and using them, not just reading! Personal experience is more important than book knowledge (except when it comes to safety)

Equipment

  • JARS (check the thrift store for cheap finds)
  • Alcohol – I usually use 80 proof vodka for tinctures but you can also use brandy depending on what you’re making
  • Oils- I like grapeseed oil and coconut oil
  • Funnels
  • Cheese cloth for straining herbs
  • Kitchen scale
  • French press (easy way to make loose leaf tea)

Idea of what to start making with herbs

  • Bruise/injury salves
  • Bug sprays
  • Calming tinctures/teas
  • Digestive tinctures/teas
  • Pain tinctures
  • Fomentations
  • Poultices

I probably forgot a lot of stuff so Ill be adding more in the future!

Herbal Colic Remedies

A good herbal colic remedy will be gentle in its action and works by improving digestion, relieving spasm, restoring balance to the digestive tract and by stimulating peristalsis.

Colic is a common ailment that affects most people at some point but it can be painful and in infants, it can lead to sleepless nights for all the family.

The best way to take herbs for colic relief is either as a tea or as an herbal remedy known as ‘colic water’.

While it is just as effective to use fluid extracts, it may be easier to simply make up an herbal tea with a slice of fresh ginger to ease mild colic.
