A healthy alternative.
According to the internet, herbalism is the proactive usage of plants and herbs for medicinal purposes.
Many herbalists will say that it is a way of living a naturally healthy lifestyle without the added chemicals.
Why is it a topic today?
It is a topic that I have wanted to explore more in depth. I recently interviewed an herbalist who has practiced and implemented herbs as apart of her daily routine and for home remedies. The interview will be posted in a few days.
Using an herbal remedy on my own…
I purchased “Eden Salve” which is antibacterial salve designed to heal and soothe wounds, itches and/or bites. It is made with all natural ingredients and works like a charm. I have used it for the many paper cuts I obtained from my job and as… well, just being a student. One week, I got three! I was amazed.
Before I entered college in 2012, I had never experienced one before. The first day at my first job, I got a paper cut trying to pull files out of a tight cabinet that just would not budge. Determined to get those files out, I pulled until they came out which took about a good hour. Looking back, I laugh at my ambition, but I still admire more than ever what that ambition and determination allowed me to do. It has definitely contributed to my growth and allowed me to be who I am now.
Back to the topic…
After placing the salve on my wounds, I felt a cooling sensation and it instantly soothed my wounds. It took three days to heal and did not hurt one bit.
