Amazing Herbal Blog Roll
It has taken me a while to get to this post which I meant to do just days after I discovered the Herbal Blog Roll, but my home life intruded and I did not have time to construct the blog the way I wanted to so I waited.
Recently on one of my Yahoo groups on herbs, someone mentioned that there was a list of herbal blogs that someone had carefully put together. Since finding good blogs to read on herbs is something I enjoy, but the act of putting together a list seemed so much work I was pleased to know someone had done the leg (or is that finger) work. Then I visited it and found out it was done by none other than Rosalee de la Foret.
I have been reading the materials of Rosalee for some time because she has a passion for the healing powers of nutrient dense foods and medicinal herbs. I know I’ve mentioned before my research work on ‘eating to health’ which includes using herbs and foods to improve health and avoid chronic illness. As someone who experienced chronic disease, Rosalee de la Forȇt now shares her knowledge so others can address the root causes of health problems.
She is a graduate of the East West School of Herbology, and a practicing clinical herbalist, using both Traditional Chinese Medicine and western herbalism she conducts herbalism training, authors books and articles on herbal healing, and works with LearningHerbs.com and HerbMentor.com with video presentations, blogs articles and webinars.
I respect her opinions and her background in herbs and love that she took the time to put together an Herbal Blogroll (of which I can say we are a proud member) that includes blogs that have information to share, not just something to sell. I have found several blogs worthy of visiting often. Here are two picks of mine:
This blog has everything from gardening tips to health solutions using herbs. The posts are short and concise and easy to read. I love the variety of items discussed.
I often get caught up in the practical side of herbs, how to grow them, what to do with them, etc. and I forget sometimes to just appreciate and enjoy them and muse on them as a special part of my life. Robin Rose Bennet takes time to do that and share it. She has poems as well as practical advice about herbs. A wonderful place to pause and contemplate.
