Healing and Nurturing Herbs and Weeds

Our principal interest in herbs is their extraordinary healing properties due to our extensive use of them in our clinic. There are thousands of plants that can be used to treat many ailments, as well as trees from all over the world which provide medicine and food.

Flowers can be made into essences which can help you balance your emotions. Some plants are used for decoration only, yet help cleanse our air.

I believe all we need for our medicine and wellbeing is around us.

On our property I use several different plants which are classified as "weeds".




Vervain - verbena officinalis

 

I use these "weeds" in salads, stir frys, teas, make herbal tinctures for medicine and dry the herbs for medicinal use.

Plants detox the air we breathe and it is great to have indoor plants inside your living space to help clean the air and give your home a wonderful feel.

I believe they have a life and world of their own and the life force within each plant is a special gift that we are blessed to experience whilst watching them grow and respond to love and kindness.

Like us: feed them right, give them water and love, place them in the right environment and they respond wonderfully.
