Wild medicine can come in the form of a properly harvested plant remedy, a story that brightens the mood, or a feather found on a breezy afternoon walk. Wild-crafting medicine is about seeing opportunity where others see darkness.
Medicinal herbs that grow wild, tended by the hand of Mother Earth are potent, abundant, and wise. Each plant has it's own essence and personality that shines through, sending vibrant healing throughout the body, heart, and mind. This is the language of wild medicine and it is the medicine of the people, transmitted to us through the ages.
The graceful harvesting of these plants is known as 'wild-crafting' and it is the legacy of our Ancestors. Growing all around us is our heritage, our history, and our birth right. You, yourself have plants that live just outside your door that are potent wild medicine- nurturing agents of vital change.
