Plant Medicine VII: The Nervines

Learn all about the nervines! These are some of the most important plants in modern herbalism because there is such great need to help heal our nervous systems. In this course we will cover a systematic review of the Nervine plant medicines, from Skullcap, Blue Vervain, Wild Oat, Betony and Linden to Parrots Beak, Mimosa, Passionflower and Anemone… 


We will compare the relative energetics and properties of 30+ nervine herbs, with detailed training in how and when to use each one. Each plant will be discussed in detail with visual aids to help with botanical identification, cultivation, ethical wildcrafting, medicine making and therapeutic uses. Each plant will be recognized for its chemistry and its spirit, with an emphasis on forming healing relationships between people and plants.
