The Herbal How To Guide is dedicated to sharing knowledge of how to work with plants and natural products. I don't tell you 'what' to take (that's for your Medical Professional to decide) I teach you HOW to prepare it, the base knowledge of herbalism. From herb garden plans and wildcrafting, to simples and herb bluk tea, to preparing alternative medicine, to playing with herbal crafts (such as making herbal soaps, creams and lotions).
My dedication extends to the love of our natural world, living a beautiful, comfortable life, and learning how to work with Nature. It's about beautiful gardens, both created and wild, and heavenly smells on a nature walk (no matter where you live). It's about relieving the stress of life and learning how to stop and smell the roses.
Plants have a rich and beautiful history and, as each of us learns and tries something new, we add to that history with our own discoveries. Many of our medicines today began with a knowledge of herbs. Cooking includes the art of understanding what spices will enhance a meal (or bring comfort to our loved ones). And we should be asking, "Was it magic, or was there truth behind some of the old wives-tales?"
And then there's the unparalleled beauty of our Natural World!
Over 35 years of wild harvesting and photographing herbs, and the locations I've been in, has given me some spectacular pictures.
Here at Herbal How To Guide, I look forward to sharing the knowledge of herbalism, gardening information and herb garden plans, basic preparations with both herbs and natural products, teaching ways to live in an Eco Friendly home, and much more. Part of my goal is to present the information in an 'easy to understand' format.

When Everything Changes - Change Everything!
As many of you may be aware the area I live in is in it's 3rd year of drought. For many years I have supplied wildcrafted herbs. This is just not ethically possible at this time. I see the plants struggling and I cannot bring myself to harvest. I also know that the 'quality' isn't the best and I will not sell an inferior product. Please visit Mountain Rose Herbs (see the picture link to the left) for all your herbal product, they are the only supplier I personally trust.
Herbal How To Guide will be moving to a sharing site completely. What do you do with your herbs once you have them? Come here to learn and get ideas.
