• Materia Medica: Vitex

    Vitex or Chaste Tree, latin name Vitex agnus-castus, is a gentle yet powerful balancing herb for the endocrine system – aka your hormones. As one of the herbs we meet and discuss in our Roots of Herbalism course, and our Home Study version of that program, as well as an herb that grows well in Florida’s climate, we are delighted to share this herb with you today. How have YOU used Vitex? Leave us your experiences in the comments below.

  • Making Your Own Herbal Tinctures

    From our Roots of Herbalism Home Study video, we explore Tinctures today – how to make your own concentrated, liquid herbal extracts using alcohol like brandy or vodka, vegetable glycerine, or apple cider vinegar. In today’s video, we explore making tinctures using the Simpler’s method. If you enjoy this video, you can learn more about tinctures in our Roots of Herbalism class. The next live session will be held November 14 & 15 in Orlando, and we also offer the course as a home study curriculum.
