The Healing Power of Herbs – with Rachel Hornby
Herbal teas provide support in maintaining or regaining physical health. Herbal teas work on a gentle subtle level to encourage the natural healing process. When we honour ourselves to consume what Mother Nature has provided, we begin the process of healing. Drinking Herbal teas was one of the first ways herbs where used. The history of Herbal Medicine goes back many centuries and is the foundation of many drugs today.
When we drink Herbal tea it is about enjoying the tea ritual, the therapeutic and energetic healing qualities of the herbs, and the graceful gathering and sharing of stories, a time to celebrate and enjoy every sip.
Rachel provides easy step by step process to learning all you need to know about blending your own herbal teas at home with confidence.
