I’ve dabbled and experimented and now it’s time to REALLY learn about Herbs. I’ve enrolled in the Herbal Academy’s “Introductory Herbal Course”! I thought about skipping and doing the Intermediate Course but decided to begin at the beginning (I remember hearing that phrase in school) and it served me well.
What I would REALLY love is for you to join me. That is, if you’re interested in learning about herbs. Herbs have been and ARE a life-changing experience for me, one that I’m sure will be a part of my life from here on out. And I can’t wait to get to the point of experimenting on my own and knowing EXACTLY what I’m doing! So if you’re ready to begin your herbal journey, go ahead and click on the above link and join me in class!
For today, I’m sharing my experience making herbal Root Beer Tea.
I combined all the herbs that were called for in the recipe:
- burdock root
- cinnamon chips
- sarsaparilla root
- dandelion root
- a pinch of stevia
Once the herbs were simmered for about 30 minutes in water and strained, it was ready to drink warm……or cool. I must say, it was pretty darn good! I could’ve adjusted a couple of the herbs to make it better but it was good just the way it was too. That’s part of the learning experience that I’m looking for at The Herbal Academy so I’ll be comfortable making my own recipes.
This particular recipe came from “Rosemary Gladstar’s Medicinal Herbs…a beginner’s guide” This book is full of recipes and herbal knowledge from Rosemary herself. She has over 35 years experience with herbalism. It’s a great read!
That’s it for today but stay tuned. I’m gathering supplies to make my own soap! MORE FUN TIME!!
Have a Blessed Day,
