I received an e-mail invitation to a great herbal livestream, and am passing it on to you. The following is from John at LearningHerbs:
This is what happened when I chose the wrong herb…
I didn’t hurt myself.
It’s more like the herb I used just didn’t work.
Here’s the story…
I was getting over a cold, and had a bad cough at the end, which is a pretty common thing that happens.
I started using garlic, which is an herb I had used many times before for coughs.
I mean, just about every herbal book says use garlic for coughs. When you look up “herbs for a cough,” garlic is on every list.
However, why wasn’t garlic working for me?
Turns out not all coughs are the same.
If you look at that same list of “herbs for cough,” you might also see an herb called marshmallow listed.
Now, if I’m at the START of a cold, garlic might be the perfect herb. But I was at the END of the cold, when that hacking cough simply needed soothing.
Garlic doesn’t soothe.
But guess what? Marshmallow does.
If we look at those herbal lists, and see dozens of herbs under a particular health condition, just how the heck are we supposed to know which one to use?
The answer is that we have to move away from this “List-Based Herbalism” and move towards “Sense-Based Herbalism.” By learning to use your senses with herbs, as humans have been doing for tens of thousands of years, you can begin to really TRUST the herbs you choose.
To help you learn this, Rosalee put together a 3-part livestream called…

These days, I know how to check in with my body and figure out how I can match the perfect herb to what I need it for. You can do this too, as it’s a skill you already use every day.
We have a wonderful printable PDF that contains the Taste of Herbs Flavor Wheel, as well as a quiz for figuring out your “herbal type.”
