Herbs and seasonal health go together so well, they work for any season.
I started my holistic journey along time ago, before I even realized that I would even get into a life of holistic healing. Growing up in a small southern town, understanding that you look around and work with the resources available to you. With this understanding whispering in your ear as you go through life, you start to see you have everything you need right here.
In the spring and summer you can gather herbs, such as dandelion, mullein, nettle then dry for the winter months. When the fall blows in, we start to prepare syrups, teas and herbal blends to work through the winter months.
Now as we transition through the seasons, it's time to look at and check in with our health routines.Herbs are a great addition to your cold weather routines, as simple as adding a nettle tea to nourish the body, blending a heating chai with root herbs or making a bone broth for strength or during a cold are all great ways to add herbs in.
Their are so many ways to stay healthy during the change of seasons, herbs are just one of the many ways to find that balance. Look around, see what you have in your environment to bring in healing for the long winter.
