While I’ve always felt passionate about natural healing and medicine, I experienced a great deal of frustration and confusion when I first embarked on the plant medicine path.
At the time I had a very limited knowledge of what natural healing involved, however my desire to learn more was strong and felt somewhat like a calling.
This may come as no surprise to you, but I seriously love flower essence medicine. I’m not sure when this love affair began, though I do have fond memories of my time as a young girl digging for quartz crystals and making flower potions in the back yard.
I get the sense that I came into this world destined to work with this particular medicine. It was not something I feel I had to learn for the first time, more something that was already within that I uncovered as I began to play with life.
Plant medicine. You’ve probably heard the term thrown around a lot in recent years. From the sky-rocketing popularity of essential oils, to the shamanic other-worldly experiences of ayahuasca, and everything in between.
One thing’s for sure, the resurgence of natural and plant based medicine is undeniable.
For something that encompasses so many seemingly different things, one might be left wondering… what exactly is plant medicine?
