Herbal Recipe, Guide, Ebook, and Course For Kids! (Herbalism)

Yesterday was May Day and today is Herb Day!  Hope everyone is having a wonderful spring so far, filled with many green activities!

Just a quick post to mention a few awesome herbal resources. :)

Dr Aviva Romm recently posted a great recipe for a cold and flu syrup for kids on her facebook page. It's super simple to make: you basically mix a lot of store bought tinctures.  Or if you are already an herbalist: make the tinctures yourself, and then mix them!  

I really respect Dr Aviva Romm.  She is a medical doctor, one of the best known clinical herbalists (she was the president of the American Herbalists Guild for over a decade), and she was also a mid wife, so she looks at herbs from many different perspectives.  I have some of her books and they are jam packed with information.  I like how she bridges the gap between science and herbalism, and how she offers families as well as medical practitioners alternative herbal options!

A few weeks ago I signed up for her newest course, Healthy All Year, and a few days ago it opened. I just started studying and so far it is great--I am learning so much!  This course covers many different topics, and it is very in depth.  It focuses on herbal remedies for kids, but even if you don't have kids, it's a great course to take.  I don't have kids yet, but I have a niece and nephew, so I am taking it to learn even more about herbalism for kids.  Plus it's super on sale now for only a few more days.

Lastly she has a website (  It has a lot of herbal information and there are a couple free guides and ebooks too.  Currently there is a free detox your medicine cabinet guide, and a free ebook on herbal medicine for kids.
