This earth and its living beings are in need of great healing, and all healing starts with the self. Affecting change in the world can be extremely depleting when we are not taking proper care of ourselves. Many of us are “burning the candle at both ends”, resulting in anxiety, depression, and chronic sickness. Real change, both individually and globally, cannot occur without self-care and self-love. This is where plant medicine can be our greatest ally. Incorporating healing herbs into our lives is a daily reminder of the ancient bond with our first mother: Nature. When we treat ourselves with care, we cause less harm to others. This is liberation.
