#30: Herbal Medicine with Spiritus Vitae Botanicals

Apr 8, 2020 | Health, Nutrition, Podcast, Sustainability

The start of April brings with it the anticipation of Earth Day towards the end of the month and encourages us to begin to shift our focus toward our own environmental impact and how we use what has been given to us from the planet.

For Nicole Saville herbs are far more than just for cooking; as the owner of Spiritus Vitae Botanicals, herbs are for both medicine and giving back to the land.  They are in essence the “Spirit of Life.”  By taking care of the land through chemical-free farming practices, the land can take care of us through its bounty.

Herbal medicine is where herbs used as food cross over and begin to heal the body.  It’s all about the intention in how the herbs are being used.  Find out how to begin integrating more herbs into your lifestyle and some of the most beneficial herbs for stress, anxiety and immunity.
