Rebecca is a passionate individualist who loves all things creative! Her expertise includes: herbalism, medicine making, visual arts, movement, blogging, photography, cooking, and wellness. She has degrees in both botany and herbal medicine and has studied plant medicine for the last five years.
What’s your basic astrology like?
My main signs fall into the elements of earth, fire and water. I have a Capricorn Sun, Aries Moon, and Pisces Rising.
Do you have a favorite herbal preparation?
Miels are by far my favorite herbal preparation! These honey-based medicines form a wonderful base for all kinds of herbs, especially those that would normally taste unpalatable. Some common herbs that I enjoy in miels are hawthorn, reishi and rose.
What is your favorite thing about working in natural health?
I really love how natural health brings more awareness and empowerment to those who want more out of life. Understanding how much medicinal abundance the earth provides gives us the empowerment to take control of our own health and wellness.
Give us a fun fact about yourself!
I have so many passions that are behind the curtains of my normal everyday life. One thing that most people never guess about me is that I practiced Taekwondo for 8 years before I started to pursue herbalism.
Do you have any fun culture that you’d recommend to our readers and customers?
For everyone looking to learn more about herbs and alternative medicine I strongly recommend looking into local classes and workshops taught in the community. Not only can you support your local herbalists this way, but you can also connect with other beautiful people who are on the plant path!
We’re so thrilled to have Rebecca in as our bulk herbalist! Having been a sub for some time, it’s wonderful to have her at Rainbow on a regular basis. She’ll be writing here regularly starting this month so keep an eye on the blog to get more about her favorite herbs and their preparations!
