Oils, Herbs, and Me…and You.
I grew up in Brazil, in a middle-class family and I remember being treated with herbs, for minor illnesses, by my mother and grandmother. My grandmother knew a lot about herbs, and how to use them to treat stomach aches, colds, diarrhea, urinary issues, headaches, and other stress-related ailments.
I remember being fascinated by all of those herbs, clay pots, and wooden spoons. However, what really caught my attention was the love and care that my grandmother put into her work! She did mostly infusions and syrups and everything was homemade.
When I became an adult I remembered these things I had seen years ago and began reading about herbs and how to use them to cure or treat simple pains or discomforts.
When I became a mother I applied the same herbal medicine when caring for my two daughters.
In 1982, I made major lifestyle changes including becoming a vegetarian, getting involved with nutrition, and taking workshops and seminars on herbs and healing.
Most recently, in 2019, I took my first training in New York on herbs: ”Green Medicine – Herbalism.”
Come here for information about herbs and oils that you can use for minor issues. I will also sell oils and herbs for anxiety, depression, eczema, digestive issues, constipation, diarrhea, and other immune system issues.
As with all medical conditions, my advice and recommendations should not replace the advice of a medical professional. Therefore, please continue to be in communication with your doctor.
