I am a Lay Herbalist, which means I take care of my family and home using herbs and plants. I mainly use the kinds of herbs that Herbalists classify as foods, which means they are safe even in large quantites for all kinds of folks including kids and pets, but sometimes I use herbs that are a little more medicinal. And, I sometimes extend herbalism sometimes beyond the traditional boundaries of the field, blurring the lines between natural-living, green-living, herbalism and even folk knowledge. I'm always learning about herbs, and that's part of what this journal is about. I'm also looking to meet other Lay Herbalists and other folks who are interested in learning more about and using more Lay Herbal practices in their life.
