Someone was wondering why I wasn’t writing about herbs anymore. I haven’t abandoned herbs, I just haven’t had room for them in a while. This marks the return of herbalism to my blog, and it’s a recommendation (in keeping with this week’s theme). The people below are the 5 most knowledgeable herbalists I know of, and if you’re serious about learning more, you should check them out.
Susun Weed is a well known Wise Woman and Herbalist. Her mission is to wake us up to the gifts of Earth and to entice us to bend over and pick a weed and taste it. As a green witch, her approach to herbal medicine is to see it as a living manifestation of the Goddess. She teaches classes and is a mentor for others through her apprenticeship program. Her tagline for her website at SusunWeed.com is Herbal Medicine and Spirit Healing the Wise Woman Way. She’s written several books, and given lots of lectures.
John is a Community Centered Herbalist. He is also a licensed five element acupuncturist. He’s the founder of Herbmentor.com, a community mentoring site (where I’m a member), and Learningherbs.com, where you can learn about herbs and find remedies and recipes for free.
Rosemary is a pioneer in the herbalism and has been called the ‘godmother of American Herbalism’. She’s the founder of the California School of Herbal Studies, author of The Science and Art of Herbalism home study course, and the organizer of the International Herb Symposium and The New England Women’s Herbal Conference. She is also the author of numerous herb books. Her website is SageMountain.com.
Kiva is a folk, herbalist. In addition to teaching and having a clinical practice, she’s one of the organizers for the Herbal Resurgence Rendezvous, and one of the editors for Plant Healer: A Journal of Traditional Herbalism. I find her work with Herbal Energetics very interesting. Her website is BearMedicineHerbls.com.

Wow..those were all new to me. Will have to read more about these.
I’ve been following them all for quite a while, and I’ve learned a lot 🙂
I am so glad that you have returned to writing about herbs! Herbs are so important and I think that more people should learn more about them. They play a big role in my life. The past couple of years, I have been learning more about the different kinds of herbs and love making my own teas and blends. The blends make great gifts for friends and family too.
Herbs play a big role in my life as well, so not having time to write about herbs wasn’t feeling good. I did spend some of the time putting together my book though. It’s called “Wonderful Weeds – The Forgotten Resource”, and I hope to have it out on Kindle this Autumn. Herbs are what kept me going back when I couldn’t get pain meds. So they’ll always have a big place in my life.
I am very proud of my little herb garden. Thanks for sharing information about these people who I absolutely have to check out.
My pleasure, and thanks for the RT 🙂
Helpful information. Lucky me I found your web site accidentally, and I’m surprised why this twist
of fate did not came about in advance! I bookmarked it.
I’m glad you liked it 🙂
