From seed to medicine…an herbalist in the making
For more than 13 years, I have informally studied the areas of wellness, skin care, beauty and fitness. My interest in the field grew from tragedy. In early 2016, my husband was instantly killed in a car accident.
To cope with my grief and heal myself, I decided to dig deeper and formally educate myself about physical, mental and emotional wellness.
Beginning July 2016, I began my journey to become a licensed esthetician and herbalist. I decided to enroll in the School of Botanical & Medical Aesthetics and Herbalism Roots, Denver’s only comprehensive herbalism program. During my year-long, intense studies, I gained a great amount of knowledge and I noticed my broken heart beginning to heal…Connecting with mother nature on a deeper level and receiving facial services every weekend will make a girl feel better.
To say the least, the lessons learned changed my life and I have a greater understanding of and appreciation for the environment, plant medicine and the wonderful complexities of the human body. I truly believe my health (emotional and physical) has improved since learning about herbal medicine.
My program included the following areas of study…
- Study of body systems and pathologies
- Formal study of plants and their therapeutic uses
- Gardening, permaculture, and herbal medicine making
