Yarrow with Guido Masé
2022/06/15
In this chat with Guido Masé, one of my herbal heroes, you’ll hear the many, many gifts of Yarrow. Then, we get a glimpse into what's on Guido’s mind these days. This conversation is a real treat. I love how Guido weaves together many seemingly different pieces of herbalism, whether it's chemical constituents, heart centered healing, or even mythology and folklore. He also perfectly summarizes why I love being an herbalist. You’ll also receive instant access to a FREE recipe card with Guido’s instructions for how to make yarrow powder from the fresh plant. I love this recipe for many reasons. One is that yarrow powder is a truly wondrous healer for cuts and scrapes. This is one remedy you’ll never want to be without! Another is that rather than letting any part of the plant go to waste, Guido also shares how you can process and use the yarrow stalks to cast the I Ching, a traditional Chinese oracular system. For those of you who don't know him already, Guido Masé is an herbalist and garden steward, specializing in therapeutic herbalism and the pharmacology of plants and mushrooms. He spent his childhood in Italy, in the central Alps, in a Renaissance town called Ferrara. After traveling the United States, he settled into Vermont where he has been living since 1996. He is a founder, faculty member, and clinical supervisor at the Vermont Center for Integrative Herbalism, a 501(c)(3), nonprofit herbal medicine clinic and school. He serves as herbalist, principal scientist, and chief formulator at Traditional Medicinals, where he works on herbal teas, supplements, bitters, and tonics. He is a founding member of the Railyard Apothecary in Burlington, Vermont, where he works as part of a collaborative clinical practice. He's the author of the The Wild Medicine Solution: Healing with Aromatic, Bitter, and Tonic Plants, as well as the book DIY Bitters. Listen in for: ► Why yarrow is one of Guido’s most beloved herbal allies ► What makes plants and herbal medicine, in Guido’s words, a chemistry of communion ► How medicinal compounds tell a story (quite literally) Show snippet: “So many incredible things from Yarrow, as well as its shining beauty in the field or in the garden, make this perhaps my most beloved ally.” ---- Get full show notes and more information at: http://herbswithrosaleepodcast.com/ (herbswithrosaleepodcast.com) For more behind-the-scenes of this podcast, follow https://www.instagram.com/rosaleedelaforet/ (@rosaleedelaforet) on Instagram!

Rosehips with Julie James
2022/05/25
Rosehips are famous for their vitamin C content, but as herbalist Julie James will tell you, “[Vitamin C] is the least sexy part of rose hips.” That’s because rosehips are filled with so many benefits that go way beyond vitamin C! For example, we’ll share how one of its most underrated gifts is for modulating inflammation. In this episode, you’ll hear all about rosehips, plus you’ll get Julie’s yummy Rosehip Electuary recipe.

It’s energizing without causing jitters, supportive to the immune system, helpful to modulate the physical effects of stress as you’re making lifestyle changes.

Ben not only shares a lot of information about the efforts that are underway to protect this wonderful herb, but also gives questions you can ask suppliers to make sure the rhodiola (and other endangered herbs) you are buying were harvested sustainably. And as a listener, you’ll also receive instant access to his recipe for Rhodiola Energy Balls. For those of you who aren’t already familiar with Ben, here’s more about him. Sitting quietly atop a Colorado mountain peak, Ben LeVine felt a voice from his favorite herb that would define his future: “You were meant to become an herbalist. Just let the plants guide you.” That path has led him to the farthest corners of the Earth and back, driven to unravel the mysteries of the world’s most powerful plants. Now as Co-Founder and Chief Herbalist of Rasa, he’s using those potent herbal secrets to revolutionize your morning energy ritual with the power of adaptogens. Listen in for: ► Considerations and questions to ask when sourcing rhodiola ► Why rhodiola’s growing conditions make it adaptogenic for humans ► What cautions should you be aware of when working with adaptogenic herbs? Here is one of my favorite takeaways from our conversation: “Are you using adaptogens to build a ladder out of the bucket or are you just using [them] to struggle longer? I'm seeing adaptogens sometimes co-opted this way – like a one-to-one replacement for coffee, with no lifestyle changes, no introspection." It was a delight to speak with Ben and I’m so happy to share our conversation with you today! ---- Get full show notes including a transcript of this episode at: http://herbswithrosaleepodcast.com/ (herbswithrosaleepodcast.com).

Safe Herbs for Dogs and Cats with Swanie Simon
2022/03/30
Are you concerned about safe herbs for dogs and cats, as well as cautions to be aware of when working with herbs for cats and dogs? If so you won’t want to miss this informative and inspiring interview with animal herbalist and naturopath Swanie Simon! I love it when my guests make things practical and Swanie delivers with instant access to two herbal recipes for pets, a paw salve and a carrot soup that can work wonders to relieve diarrhea. Swanie’s love of animals and nature was apparent from a very young age and she has spent her life working with animals and learning everything she could about them. Influenced by Juliette de Bairacli Levy’s books, she went on to become an herbalist, TCVM practitioner and naturopath for animals (Tierheilpraktiker). Juliette de Bairacli Levy went on to become a dear friend and lived at Swanie’s farm in Germany for several years. Swanie is highly specialized in the natural rearing and treatment of dogs and cats and is one of Europe’s most renowned authors, teachers and herbalists. She is credited with making the subject of raw diets for dogs and cats popular in Europe and has written several best-selling books on the subject. Swanie has been teaching herbalism, TCVM and dog and cat nutrition since 2005 and online classes in Germany since 2014.
 She is planning online classes in English starting in 2023. Today Swanie lives on a beautiful farm in the high forest region of Germany with 4 dogs, 5 cats, 2 horses, about 20 goats and a gang of chickens. She splits her time between her farm in Germany and her home in the beautiful Provence region of south France. Listen in for: ► What diet is best for dogs and cats? ► Are essential oils a good idea for flea and tick prevention? ► Are there any maintenance herbs that are safe for pets? Here is one of my favorite takeaways from our conversation: “The first, most important thing is always my patient. I want them to feel good, and not my ideology and my ego, but the patient has to feel good.” I met Swanie years ago and her depth of knowledge was immediately apparent. Because I’m often asked about working with herbs for pets, I leaned into Swanie's expertise to hear her many insights on working safely with herbs for dogs and cats and let the conversation go on longer than usual. I think you’ll agree that was a good choice and I’m thrilled to share our conversation with you today! ---- Get full show notes including a transcript of this episode at: http://herbswithrosaleepodcast.com/ (herbswithrosaleepodcast.com).

Purple Dead Nettle with Colleen Codekas
2022/03/23
Purple dead nettle is an alluring weed that often grabs our attention in the spring. It can spring up in lawns and disturbed places, forming a thick mat of its bee-enticing flowers. Despite all the intrigue surrounding purple dead nettle, there’s so little information about it! I'm so excited to talk with Colleen Codekas about purple dead nettle (Lamium purpureum) because she has lots of experience with this plant as a forager and herbal medicine maker. You’ll also receive access to Colleen’s recipe for herbal honey infused with purple dead nettle, which could serve as a tasty way to get some relief from seasonal allergies! If you don’t already know Colleen, you’re about to find out that she is passionate about healthy living through natural food and herbal medicine! She lives with her family of three in Vermont where living close to nature is easy and a way of life. In her off-time, she likes to go foraging for wild edible and medicinal plants and mushrooms, cook delicious food, make mead, grow a ridiculous amount of edible and medicinal plants, and make herbal medicine. She is the author of the traditionally published book Healing Herbal Infusions, and four ebooks: Wildcrafting Weeds, Healing Kitchen Herbs, Simple Mead Making, and The Backyard Forest Garden. ► ► ► Colleen has also created an online foraging course, gather + root, which you can learn more about at: https://bit.ly/3pVJnIt (https://bit.ly/3pVJnIt) (Disclosure: This is an affiliate link. By using it, you help support this channel. Thanks!) Listen in for: ► Herbs that combine well with purple dead nettle in pesto ► Is fresh or dried purple dead nettle best for infusing herbal honey? ► Are there any purple dead nettle look-alikes to be aware of? Here is one of my favorite takeaways from our conversation: “Things would start growing in our yard that were like weeds, most people would think of as weeds. I was just so interested. Like, what is this plant? What is that plant? Almost every single one was something that was used either for herbalism purposes or for food or both.” Colleen and I have known each other online for a long time and it was really fun to have a face-to-face visit with her and to share our conversation with you! ---- Get full show notes including a transcript of this episode at: http://herbswithrosaleepodcast.com/ (herbswithrosaleepodcast.com).
