Getting started with herbs will empower you in many different ways. Herbs can be our food, they can also be the healing remedies that we rely on for our everyday health care needs.
3 Keys to Getting Started with Herbs
Oftentimes, the more you learn about plants, the more you realize there is to know. There are three simple keys to getting started with herbs:
(1) The first key is to learn little by little, you can avoid overwhelming that can easily overtake an otherwise enthusiastic herbal student.
(2) The second key is to back up your herbal knowledge with experience. Learning purposefully and intentionally means you’ll be rooted in knowledge and experiences that you can be confident about.
For example, that may mean learning a bit about chamomile and then making chamomile tea to experience it yourself, or perhaps for you, it’s growing chamomile and then harvesting it, and learning from that experience.
(3) The third key is learning within a community to successfully learn about herbs is having a community to learn with.
Doing all these three things will ensure that you truly learn herbalism and fully integrate herbs into your life.
Herbalism was traditionally passed down from person to person, and while you can certainly learn a lot on your own, when you have a community alongside you, you’ll be able to truly accelerate your learning.
Within a community, you can share your success stories, and you can be inspired by your own herbal studies and experiments. You can also lean on your community for support when learning new things.
Having a community where you can ask your specific questions can ensure that you are totally getting the new concepts and using herbs safely.

Our Community is uniquely designed to help you learn little by little to support your learning experiences and to give you community support.
We all learn joyfully, using herbs for culinary and healing remedies in our everyday lives. It’s about nourishment, it’s about deep-rooted health. We recognize that this is a lifelong process that continually builds our sense of empowerment as both our knowledge and apothecary grow. Our community is not about fad remedies. It’s not about swallowing lots of pills and supplements, and it’s not about silver bullet cures.

Studying herbalism often entails learning lots of new skills. You’ll be learning new vocabulary, new remedy preparations, and even entirely new concepts about health and healing. When treading in all these new waters, it’s easy to feel uncertain or confused about concepts. It’s also really common to have concerns about safety.
It’s about powering yourself with real and simple solutions to address you and your family’s everyday health and wellness needs. We also want to help you create that incredible bond that happens within our families and friendships when we create our own home apothecaries when everyone in the home is connected with the remedies created season after season and year after year.
In our community, we all are interested in that powerful transformation that happens when we use plants in our everyday lives when we can rely on the medicines we make from plants growing around us and the joy we get from regularly interacting with nature.
3 Steps to Getting Started with Herbs
In addition to this introduction, getting started with herbs has just three steps. It also includes some worksheets and exercises.
Our first step is beginning to explore an herb.
The next step is to learn how to both identify and find an herb. This is important whether you are foraging your plants or ordering from an apothecary.
Finally, we put together what we explored in the first two parts so that we can then make a remedy with the herb.
In addition, you’ll learn the tips and techniques for a particular herb.
Getting started with herbs is designed to fit into busy lives.
To get the most out of this, all you need to do is to follow my 3 series post of following posts and do the short action guides:
Part 1: Beginning to Explore an Herb
Part 2: How to Identify an Herb
Part 3: Making an Herbal Remedy
When you’re finished, you’ll have the tools you need to study any herb you want.
Action Steps to Getting Started with Herbs
Your first action is to choose an herb that you would like to study.
This can be an herb that grows near you. Maybe an herb that you’ve used before and you want to know more about it or any herb that you’re curious about. We also have some suggestions for herbs to choose from.
If you want an herb that’s easy to find near you, consider herbs that are commonly sold at grocery stores, like rosemary, garlic or ginger or parsley.
If you have a garden, choose a culinary herb that you grow. Perhaps mint, rosemary, thyme, or basil. If you’re ready to start identifying and forging herbs that grow naturally near you, consider a common plant like nettle, chickweed, or burdock.
This post is using dandelion as an example. Dandelion could also be a good choice for your herb.
Getting started with herbs is designed to be used over and over again with as many herbs as you’d like. So for now, choose an herb that you can get started with herb right away, and if you aren’t sure what herb to choose, join our community and ask your question inside the community, then you can decide what herb you’d like to start with.
Last but not least, getting started with herbs continues with Part 1, beginning to explore an herb.
