I have been drawn to herbs for many years. Way back  20+ years ago when I was newly married and we had little babies, we lived in an 800 square foot townhouse. I had only a few square feet to plant anything next to the steps, but I remember going to the farmers’ market and picking out flowers and herbs. I didn’t know how to use herbs at all back then, except for a few culinary herbs like thyme and oregano, but I liked having them around me. Back then I didn’t have the internet to look them up, but I bought the book, Growing Herbs. That was it. I dreamed of one day have an herb garden and maybe even selling plants as the book suggested. I’ve never gotten much past the basics of herb growing until this year. More on that another time.

About two years ago I decided to learn more about herbs and their uses for health and healing. Herbs are so amazing in their abilities to help the body heal itself. I never realized how much there is to learn, though! So I began watching videos, listening to podcasts, and reading everything I could about herbs. There is so much we can learn on the internet for free these days and that is how I began my education. I have compiled a list for you of great mentors for learning about medicinal herbs. There are online herb courses that are great, too, if you’re ready to begin investing in your herbal education. Many of the Herbal Schools and Herbal Websites with paid courses also offer free info on their sites. Also, sites that sell herbal products also have free information.

Here is a super cool resource with so many medicinal plants and herbal remedies in it. It’s like a super guide to herbal education in one volume. Follow the link to watch the author explain the book. (This is an affiliate link.)
