If you are like me, then you might have started to think of plants as those little bottles neatly arranged on a shelf. My lavender is purple, eucalyptus is green, and frankincense is pink. How often do you think of the actual plant though? Do you know what peppermint leaves look like? How about geranium?
If you’re struggling to picture them, then you’re not alone. That’s why I sat down with ethnobotanist Kerry Hughes, to help us learn a little more about the plants outside the bottle.
Kerry gives us a sneak peak into her books as she describes some popular plants and their uses beyond essential oils. She also sheds light on why plant medicine is often not the subject of clinical trials despite hundreds of years of use by indigenous peoples.
This episode is power packed and will leave you rethinking your garden for next year. Give it a little now!
Find her books, articles, videos, and more on her website at ethnopharm.com.
