The Importance of Herbs

It's funny how in researching various herbs in-depth I always see the herb as having ancient Greek, Indian or Chinese origins but almost never African. LOL really?? This is where the importance of oral tradition comes in.

My great grandmother was schooled by both her black and native predecessors on which herbs to take for which condition. She was known for curing my family from any sickness they had just by walking out into the forest and coming back with a handful of freshly picked herbal remedies.

Let's take it back to the old school and reclaim our heritage fam. The drug companies don't have your back in case you didn't notice. But these herbal remedies are the truth! Every household should be equipped with an arsenal of herbs that you've either studied extensively, or have been advised by someone trustworthy to take.

Here's a few of my favorites...

(Everything is clearly labeled in case you're curious except for the little bags which are from left to right: hops, and irish sea moss in whole and powdered form).
