The Herbal Homestead Journal
Herbal Homestead Journal
Herbs and self-care practices shift with the seasons and therefore offer a tremendous opportunity to learn from nature. Our bodies go through the same cycles as the earth, daily, monthly, and yearly. The herbal homestead is a place to practice this art of living that we have become so disconnected from and to consequently reconnect with the cycles around and within us.
Filled with beautiful illustrations, this book brings you through each season of the year offering herbal wisdom, recipes, and advice to help you live a life of health, connected to the natural world around you.
Organized by month, each chapter offers articles related to health, nutrition, medicinal herb application, medicine making, seasonal self-care, and cooking.
You can embrace this worldview one day or month at a time, plant by plant, one act of self-care to the next. You can create your herbal homestead from your urban apartment, you can learn about nature’s processes and the life cycle of plants from the weeds growing through the cracks in the sidewalk —all of these cycles are created equally.
