Perhaps you’re new to the healing power of herbs, or perhaps, like me, you’ve dabbled in using herbs for health and well-being, but would love to have a one-stop place for information, resources, and connection.
Introducing The Herbarium.
The Herbarium is the new membership site of the Herbal Academy of New England (HANE). In case you haven’t yet checked out HANE’s blog, it is a real treasure – full of recipes, articles and information. So I was really excited when I got the opportunity to preview The Herbarium.
A friend of mine said that this website reminded her of the book, The Secret Garden, and I have to agree: The site is as beautiful as it is packed with information.
Do you want to learn more about a specific herb? Simply explore the Monographs and search by name or by properties such as ways to use, actions, taste, or energy. Each herb is then described in thoughtful detail, and with gorgeous illustrations and photographs.
What most intrigued me are the forums. I find that I hold back on using herbs as much as I would like to because I don’t feel fully confident about how to use them. I love that a community of herb-lovers and herb-learners can come together on The Herbarium site and share their knowledge and questions.
The Herbarium will be growing each month with new content, videos, podcasts, media, and ebooks. It’s sort of like a magazine subscription – an ongoing herbal educational resource.
Right now, the Herbal Academy of New England is offering a discount for a full year membership pass to the website for only $39 using the coupon code GIVETHANKS. If you’re excited about adding to your herbal knowledge, I think you’ll really enjoy The Herbarium.
