Kitchen Medicine: Culinary Herbs to Support Your Health

-K  I  T  C  H  E  N    M  E  D  I  C  I  N  E-
While prepping for my webinar last week, I remember standing in my kitchen looking at my cupboard and feeling such genuine awe and gratitude that so much healing energy was available just in that one space.
As I stood in my kitchen taking a visual inventory, I was flooded with inspiration and memories of dozens of recipes and formulas of tonics and elixirs that we can make with our own two hands to support our health and vitality. 
🌿Make a respiratory inhalation steam with parsley, thyme, and sage..
🌿Make an immune tonic with ginger, lemon, honey, and cayenne pepper…
🌿Make a fire cider with garlic, onion, cloves, ginger, and vinegar…
🌿Make a skin exfoliant with olive oil and brown sugar…
🌿Make a mental clarity tonic with rosemary and mint…
🌿Make a warming digestive tincture with cinnamon, star anise, and ginger…
🌿Make a calming tea with chamomile and lavender…
🌿Make a throat gargle with warm water, oregano, and salt…
I mean I could just keep going and going, truly.
There is THAT much abundance.

To think—it’s possible to create systems & structures in your day to day life, in your own home, that can support your health and well-being. Sounds about right! Whether in your kitchen, your garden, your bathroom, understand that you have tremendous power to incorporate the healing power of nature in your life every single day.

The herbs in this pic just barely scratch the surface of kitchen medicine. While taking this picture, I just kept thinking about how many other plants could be included on here, and how they would vary by culture, geography, cuisine, etc. which is really cool and beautiful.

Moral of the story: have fun exploring and creating with the healing tools that are in your own home!
