As an educator, I'm always curious how people learn and retain new concepts. Last year I came across a course that looks at herbal learning from a very unique perspective. For its creator and my today's guest, Erika Galentin, using senses for plant medicine exploration is non-negotiable.

Erika is a clinical herbalist, aromatherapist, distiller, grower, and medicine-maker, consulting from Sovereignty Herbs in Ohio. She is a professional member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (UK) and the American Herbalists Guild (USA).

Some of the major takeaways from our discussion:

  1. What is the difference between autonomy and sovereignty and why herbal healing is so empowering patients and consumers
  2. How to learn more about plants by using senses and truly listening to them
  3. Erika's take on hydrosols and how they can help in a healing journey
