More Herbal Goodies

I’ve decided to make herbs a priority over the next few months. I’m in the middle of several additional research projects relating to herb use in Mexico. Then, I’m in the process of building my family’s immunity with delicious herbal additions to our daily food and beverage intake. I’m always up for more herbal identification and application skills. When I find something that I’m excited about, I like to share. SO…..

Today, through November 12, you can sign up to enjoy the FREE webinar Three Powerful Herbs to Support Relaxation and Energy sponsored by Ultimate Bundles and presented by Heather from Herbal Academy. Awesome! I’m psyched!

Additionally, Herbal Academy has a new course! Registration opens today for the Emulsifiers and Preservative in Botanical Skin Care Products Intensive from Herbal Academy. This two-part workshop is specially designed for those of you who love making skin care products from natural ingredients. 

Session 1 will help you gain an understanding of why we need emulsifiers and preservatives in order to keep creams, lotions, and other emulsions stable and safe for long-term use. Session 2 will have you creating radiant, nourishing topical skin care recipes using some of our favorite herbal ingredients. 

The workshop is only $27 with an optional Skin Care Preparations Testing Journal upgrade. Since we’ll be homebound mostly this winter, why not use this time to learn some new skills?

Did you get the FREE Herbal ebooks from last week.? The Ultimate Bundles ebook is no longer available, however, you can still download Traditional Mexican Cold and Flu Remedies and Herbal Support for Cold and Flu Season Ebook from Herbal Academy. 

How will you support your wellness with herbs this winter?

Huckleberry Mountain Botanicals

Would you believe I found another awesome herb resource? You already know that I’m a huge fan of the Herbal Academy and have taken several courses online with them. But today, I’d like to introduce you to Huckleberry Mountain Botanicals.

My first course was The Basics of Holistic Herbalism was incredibly comprehensive. Herbalism isn’t just about taking this or that herb to improve your health you know. It’s about looking at the body as a whole and determining where herbs can provide support as part of a regular, herbally enhanced diet.  

This course started with a refresher botany section. Herb identification is vitally important, especially if you have moved to a totally different environment like I have. We wouldn’t want to poison anyone now, would we, especially since I taste the herbal concoctions on myself. After that, there was a section on medicinal properties of types of herbs, very useful.

But we weren’t finished learning yet! Session three covered the skin as an organ and talked about interactions herbs can have on it, followed by the digestive system in session four. When using herbs as medicine, it’s important to note each individual’s reaction to herbs because of his or her skin sensitivity and digestive process. It’s not just a matter of popping herbal capsules and hoping for the best.

The last section in this course discussed stress and pain. Yes, there are some herbs that can help with these conditions, but looking at the causes of stress and pain holistically and developing better coping strategies was emphasized rather than just herbal application.

So what else does Huckleberry Mountain Botanicals offer? Oodles of herb stuff! 

Let’s start with the free stuff, my favorite. Periodically, there are free informative herbal webinars that you can attend! Yippee! The next one is in March, but I don’t see what the topic will be just yet. Then there’s loads of free herbal content. Who doesn’t want to improve their herbal understanding without paying a dime? 

Are you interested in growing your own herbs and making your own concoctions like I am? Then you should check out the Cultivating Herbs Bundle and the Herbal Preparations Bundle

To step things up a bit, there are some courses for the professional herbalist including the Fundamentals of Holistic Herbalism Certificate Program and Nutrition for the Herbalist which begins in November. 

Are your kids interested in herbs? Then you should know that the Children’s Herbal School begins on June 15. What a great way to spend their summer productively!

So there you have it folks! Yet another fabulous herbal resource for those of you interested in herbs!
