The Herbal Goddess Guide

Master herbalist Amy Jirsa offers recipes and ideas for exploring and embracing the distinctive qualities of 12 powerful healing herbs — chamomile, rose, dandelion, holy basil, nettle, calendula, lavender, turmeric, echinacea, elder, cinnamon, and ginger. Jirsa shows you how to get to know each one just as an herbalist does — by immersing yourself in every aspect of the herb and naturally coming to understand its innate properties. Through delicious teas and foods, luxurious salves, skin and hair care treatments, complementary yoga poses, meditations, and more, you’ll deepen your appreciation of these herbs and learn how best to use them for radiant health and wellness.

We’re dedicated to sharing the good life beyond the choir, and to all those who didn’t yet know they give a care about living a good, fun life that’s good for others, and our planet. The mindful life is about yoga, organics, sustainability, conscious consumerism, enlightened education, the contemplative arts, adventure, bicycling, family…everything. But mostly it’s about this present moment, right here, right now, and how we can best be of benefit, and have a good time doing so.
