Natural Living Monday #14 ~ A Gift Of Health

The perfect gift of knowledge and beauty for anyone interested in herbal knowledge and healthy living!

Have you heard of Rosemary Gladstar?  Read any of her books?  She is an absolutely amazing herbalist, simply inspiring in a nourishing love filled kinda way.  Her books are infused with a plethora of knowledge that is easy to understand and relate too.  Her beautiful book, Family Herbal, A Guide to Living Life With Energy, Health and Vitality is no exception.  Filled with lovely pictures, stories and herbal tips this book is a great introduction to the world of herbs while also being a valuable resource for those more experienced with plant medicine.  Broken down into chapters for every member of the family this book has wonderful ideas for addressing everyone’s needs.  There are also sections brimming with ideas for healthy eating, help with stress, body care recipes and remedies for times when we need a bit of herbal help such as during a cold or flu.

Rosemary also includes a materia medica section complete with many favorite and useful plants as well as a section on making herbal medicines.  Through out the book you will find beloved wonderful recipes from Rosemary to try in your own home like:

  • Rosemary’s Perfect Cream
  • Longevity Tonic and Chai
  • Chamomile Tisane
  • Energy Balls

Her recipes are easy to follow and produce wonderful medicines.  She often provides the reader with special little tips for medicine making success.

This is truly one of my favorite books.  Full of inspiration and wisdom, it is a delight to read and use.

And now….

Welcome to Natural Living Monday here we share all our natural living tips, tricks, and fun ideas.

Congratulations on being featured! These amazing posts (and a few others) will be tweeted, shared on my Facebook page and pinned on my Pintrest boards! From this week forward the list is in random order! I am hoping this will get the late linkers more views! Here are the rules: Your blog article must fit these categories: sustainable living, homesteading, DIY, herbs, home-made body and skin care, real food (no processed ingredients, Weston A. Price Foundation guidelines are a good place to start to define “real food”), and all things “natural“. Link back to this week’s blog hop post so that everyone can see the other amazing posts. It is just basic common courtesy. Show some love! Go check out and see what others have posted. Share the hop and the posts you love! Not required but I would love it if you would grab the button and share share share!
