I have been into essential oils, natural health, herbs etc. for few years now. Last October I started reading a book "Sacred Plant Initiations: Communicating with Plants for Healing and Higher Consciousness". It is a great book. One concept that gave me an "aha moment" was using herbs based on the wheel of the year. So the concept is to use herb based on the season/festival of the year. For example during Samhain (Nov 1st to December 15) I used Elderberry syrup and tea for six weeks. It was to build my immune system during the flu season. And lo and behold I did not get any flu this year.
Next herb during Imbolc (from Feb 1 to March 18) will be Angelica. I am taking these two weeks to learn as much as I can about Angelica from the book, youtube videos and herbal websites. If you have had any experience using Angelica then please get in touch. Maybe we can share a dialogue.
I believe the concept of using herbs based on the wheel of the year is a great way to keep your body naturally healthy. Also, it is a great way to learn and use 8 herbs in one year. May be we can get together and start a little group/meetup locally and share this wisdom with other people.
