What is Herbalism? 5000 Years of Plant Medicine - Episode 001
In this episode, I dive into the history of herbalism, from the beginning to the forbidden to the resurgence in the 1970s. The healers of the Villages have mostly been women dating back thousands of years until religion interfered and caused mass hysteria. Women were pushed out of the medical field and their own healthcare needs and only in my lifetime have things begun to be restored. Grab your favorite tea and take a walk with me through Witchybee's world. Books mentioned: Witches, Midwives & Nurses - A History of Women Healers by Barbara Ehrenreich & Deirdre English (Apologies, I believe I referred to the authors as Ehrenreich & Deirdre and it should be been Ehrenreich & English.) Malleus Maleficarum by Heinrich Kramer Podcast photograph: Verbena hastata (blue vervain) from my urban garden this summer. I love it for its medicinal properties, but also because it looks like witch's hats. Find me on IG and Facebook @Witchybeeherbs and my website is www.WitchyBeeHerbs.com
