It’s early April and there’s a little snow left here and there, the woodstove is still going, a lot of the birds are back. And hiding under leaves and in the long meadow grass you can already find some young wild greens, just waiting for the sun to come out again. This is the perfect time of year to get out and forage for wild herbs; you may not find too much, but the young greens you do discover are full of medicine.

Join my email list today to get all the updated posts, videos, and notices when I publish a new eBook.
What’s in the book?
I guess the title is pretty self-explanatory. So just to add some information, all ten of these herbs in this book are amazing healers. You can forage all of them and each one targets a specific modern health issue. I’ve used the majority of them personally and have been growing and wildcrafting herbs and making herbal products for over fifteen years.
This book was a work of love, a foraging guide with everything I’d learned so far is in it, from how to make tinctures and poultices, to the best ways to harvest wild roots, to learning the most easily identifiable herbs on the planet.
Here’s what a few Amazon customers had to say about the book:
-Published 3 months ago by Novice herbalist
“Informative little book. I was pleasantly surprised when reading this book. I had thought it was going to be overly simplistic and was happy that it was not. As someone that has used herbs for more then 20 years I can still say….I learned a few things in this book.” –on
Do I sell herbal products?
No, but I provide recipes, videos and blog posts. My intention is to teach others to make their own herbal remedies with foraged herbs. I also sell some of my books from my author page (though I always have at least three free books available on Amazon at any given time).
Thank you again for visiting my blog, and feel free to comment about any health and wellness topics you’d like to see discussed in an upcoming blog post, video or eBook.
Yours in Wellness,
