The Herbal Homestead Journal by Brittany Wood Nickerson
Filled with beautiful illustrations, this soft cover book brings you through each season of the year offering herbal wisdom, recipes, and advice to help you live a life of health, connected to the natural world around you.
Organized by month, each chapter offers articles related to health, nutrition, medicinal herb application, medicine making, seasonal self-care, and cooking.
"Herbal homesteading is a call to connect with ourselves, with our own healthcare, and with nature and plants. This connection can make us feel at home— at home within ourselves, at home in nature, and at home in the spaces where we make medicine, heal, and connect with others. You can create an herbal homestead to any extent and be successful, you do not have to have land, a garden, a plethora of herbs, an education in herbal medicine. You can embrace this worldview one day or month at a time, plant by plant, one act of self-care to the next. You can create your herbal homestead from your urban apartment, you can learn about nature’s processes and the life cycle of plants from the weeds growing through the cracks in the sidewalk —all of these cycles are created equally."
