May 2010 - Sevi 2 years old, 8 months pregnant with Sage - at Boyce Thompson Arboretum

I am an armchair herbalist. Though I feel confident in my abilities through my own self-education, I have no formal training. When I became pregnant for the first time, I had an urge to learn more about natural health remedies. And I quickly found my lost soul mates. Simply put, I.  love. these. plants. I believe the use of herbs has become a lost art in the home. More than just a seasoning, they provide immeasurable amounts of healing and entertain all of our senses. I believe strongly in plant-based medicine for heart and soul and body.
