At Crown Body Life, our goal is to be an authentic resource for anyone who is interested in alternative, natural, herbal remedies and healing. This blog will be our space to explore thoughts, tips, tricks and provide updates on various aspects of Health and Wellness.
Traditional herbal medicine has been used to treat ailments of the mind, body, and spirit for centuries. Mother Nature holds an indefinite amount of plants. We’d like to kick things off with a look at how medicinal herbs CAN be used and consumed.
Herbs can be:
Combined with boiling water and consumed as tea
Infused, chilled, and sipped throughout the day
Used in a salve
Used in a bath or steam bath (to treat the body, skin, or for spiritual cleansing)
Burned or smoked
Powdered and mixed into a beverage
Powdered and encapsulated
Extracted for essential oils
We are sure that there are probably many more ways and we’d love to hear them from you. What are some of the ways that you’ve consumed your herbs? Are there any herbal practices that are unique to your culture? Please feel free to comment below.
