The power of herbs is one not to be underestimated. Everything we need was given to us by Mother Earth. Even the pharmaceutical pills are derived from plants! I know it is overwhelming to newbies maybe but start small and learn about one herb at a time, try a tincture or salve or whatever to get to know the plant, maybe even find what grows naturally in your area and go pick some. The more you learn the more confidence you will have to stay health with herbal wisdom.
