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!

Being Spiritually Healthy

What does it mean to be spiritually Healthy? Why is it so important?

When we think of spirituality we think of spirituality, we often think of religion or believing in some form of higher power. We sometimes resist all things that are associated with this form of spirituality; however, spirituality doesn’t have to mean religion, it doesn’t have to mean being controlled by someone or something. Having spiritual health is all about understanding that your being within yourself is in a safe place. It is all about protecting and nourishing your spirit. There are many ways to nourish the spirit and be spiritually healthy without including religion in the mix. Her are a few ways to do this:

1. Meditate

Meditation gives you time to sort through the things that plague your spirit. Allow yourself to work through your problems and free yourself from the inner workings of the ego. Sometimes the ego hides our true selves with the selves shape by a broken world.

2. Practice Mindfulness

Be present in your situation.Sometimes we go through life hiding from truths and hard times. Instead of facing rejection and moving on, we avoid difficult situation only to let it cloud our days, causing anxiety and nervousness. Don’t fear knowing the answer, be present in your life, know that what ever comes next you will want to be present for.

3. Get to know your true self

I know personally, I have created many personas for myself in order to fit in with the people around me. I changed the things I liked, I changed my way of thinking, I became someone that is just like everyone else. I got to a point I changed so much, I didn’t really know who I was. I had to peel back the layer and get to know myself again. What did I actually like? What do I actually care about? Was I like this because I wanted to seem interesting?

Sometimes the environment that changes us, isn’t for the better; so get to know the real you and love that you with all your heart.

I hope this help anyone who is looking to be spiritually healthy. Namaste.
