Herbalism is a subject area that interests me. It was once the main form of medicine and most families knew where the local medicinal herbs were and how to make medicine from them. People very much took responsibility for their own health in times past and this way of thinking seems to be making a return as evidence by the massive increase in interest in Herbalism over the past decade or two. Some people say Herbalism is witchcraft and magic, and in a way it is – what plants can do to improve our health, to make food taste nicer, to help us look nicer, is nothing short of amazing. I’m not going to go into a lot more detail on Herbalism but I would like to point to some previous posts I have done, as well as some websites that I think are interesting for those researching Herbalism or who would like to know more.
