A little bit dress up, a little bit of green magic…

Wild crafter at heart.

I have been working with herbs ever since I found a thumb eared copy of my  mothers’ Book of Herbs by Dorothy Hall. It made  me curious! Since then I have been pottering with herbs, wild-crafting, planting, tasting and learning about their roles in people’s lives.

I  studied a four year Diploma of Medical Herbalism with The National College of Traditional Medicine. I decided not to complete my final 100 clinical hours, as people treated the herbs as a form of allopathic medicine, to make illness go away, rather than using herbs to support a gentle and wise recovery.

I spent a number of years in reflective practice, listening to what herbs could teach me. I planted herb gardens (including a group project), used herbs to treat myself and those around me and remain fascinated in the power of plants to support recovery.

I now have a practice in Central Victoria focusing on the use of herbs in daily ritual, recovery of a non clinical nature and celebration.

I have also established a herb/veggie plot at a local community garden. I can often be found there communing with the earthworms! It is a work in progress, as are all gardens.

I work with herbs daily, many different ones, but have a special relationship with 13 particular herbs.

For these herbs and their teachings I am truly grateful.

Green Blessings.
