Modern Herbalists to Know & Tips on Preserving Herbs

I haven't posted in a while; I know, I know... mainly because the next couple of posts require more intensive research, and I've been in the lab in more ways than one. These days I'm taking a four season herbal intensive course with Jim McDonald and recently completed studying with Wildflower School of Botanical Medicine taught by Nicole Telkes. These are two spectacularly AWESOME herbalists and instructors. 

Btw, if you're looking to deepen your knowledge of Western herbalism, check out either Nicole or Jim; both of them have a gift for teaching the historical and modern uses of bio-regional plants. They each have a knack for demystifying modern herbalism, and making the information practical. In general, they're two all around amazing people to know.

So, while I'm off studying, running through the woods and vending around town; I'll end the radio silence on this blog. 
As stated in previous posts, the best beauty regimens begin inside. When we prepare food ourselves, we're ensuring quality and freshness, so here's a link to a post about how best to Preserve Herbs by Drying, Freezing, Pasting, Salting and Extracting.

Preserving herbs is easy and way cheaper than buying herbs and spices already preserved. Herbs can be preserved by drying or freezing them, putting them in salt and making extracts.
