How to Create Herbal Pairs and Formulas
Herbs are initially introduced as individual plants.
While this is necessary, it doesn’t provide the whole picture of their therapeutic potential.
This class addresses guidelines for how to combine individual plants into herbal pairs and then turning these pairs into formulas.
This is one of the most effective ways to increase the healing powers of herbal medicine.
You will have the opportunity to ask about specific plants you are already using and we’ll turn these into herbal pairs.
