If you plan to use plant medicine to support your health, we urge you to do some research first. Try published books, clinical trials and studies of the active constituents of plants. The information given in our article "Herbal Apothecary 101" is not meant to prescribe specific remedies, nor to cure disease or injury. All plants are chemically complex.

“There are innumerable great minds and souls who, by their words, deeds, and writings, contributed to the rich body of herbal knowledge that has been passed down to us. Most of the herbalists who were instrumental in creating and recording this collective system of healing will never receive recognition, yet we carry the seeds of their knowledge each time we use plants as medicine.” ~Rosemary Gladstar’s Family Herbal (Storey Books, 2001)
