What is Herbalism?

Simply put, herbalism is the practice of using fresh herbs and herbal preparations for better health, well-being, and vitality. Herbalism is an ancient and valuable healing practice. Today, practitioners combine herbalism with other holistic methods to treat physical and emotional ailments.

Diet, work, personal relationships, and physical trauma can cause emotional and physical stress. Herbalism can address the things in life that put us out of balance.

From my teacher Sajah Popham in his book, Evolutionary Herbalism p175, "Most important is that the vital force is never to be suppressed in any way whatsoever, unless it is necessary for the survival of the person,..The subtle art of therapeutics rest in the ability to perceive and follow the body's vital intelligence and to work with it in a way that supports the innate wisdom of the organism to autoregulate and self-heal."

An herbalist consults with clients, and creates a personalized formulation based on the symptoms they observe. Herbalism uses teas, capsules, powdered herbs, oils, ointments, tinctures, syrups, salves, elixirs, cordials even based on what the client need. The online Apothecary will strive to make elementally balance formulations.
