Not every medicinal herb has been listed because we are blessed with a countless amount throughout this world. These herbs are what I typically keep on hand because I blend wildcrafting (what I collect from nature in my surroundings) with purchased herbs for my personal herbal collection.

These medicinal herbs are listed in categories with respect to a specific organ because that is the organ that they help support the most. When choosing an herb, most are beneficial for the entire body and may help with all aspects of healing. The recipe Healthy Roots Tea using horseradish, ginger, and lemon can be beneficial for supporting your lymphatic system.

Most herbs are generally regarded as safe. However if you are nursing, pregnant, or taking a prescribed medication please double check for contradictions and speak with your pharmacist or a certified functional medicine practitioner for assistance.


Medicinal Herb Book Suggestions:

The best book that I have read for teaching yourself more about herbs and herbal tea is Rosemary Gladstar’s Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner’s Guide: 33 Healing Herbs to Know, Grow, and Use written by Rosemary Gladstar. It is a comprehensive beginners book to the practice of herbal remedies. She covers common, easy to find herbs that most of us will have growing in our own back yard. One of my favorite lines from the book is “When in doubt, use nettle.” 

Happy Tea Drinking!
