How To Start Using Herbs

Not only are they created by God for us to use to keep our bodies healthy, but they also help our bodies heal when sickness comes our way.

    Hi Meagan, I’m fresh and new to this herb business and I just really want to dive in for general use like relaxation and medicine. What are some of the essential herbs I need to grow? And where do I begin? I feel so overwhelmed with all the things I can do with herbs!

    • Meagan says:

      If you’re brand new to using herbs, I would suggest buying herbs that are dried before trying to grow your own. Growing herbs is such a long process, and once they’re ready to harvest you have to learn how to prepare and store them. I wouldn’t go there at this point. I’d start with buying them and having them ready to use right away. That’s much easier. So what I did was I chose something basic and healthy that I could use daily at first. I think I got herbs for a relaxing tea at night as well as herbs to use as a daily tonic… just something really good and healthy for my body. I would suggest getting 3 of the herbs from this post on making a relaxing tea and trying those out to see how they work for you. You can use that tea at night or during stressful times in life. I’d also suggest getting the herbs for this multi-vitamin infusion as you can drink that add during the day or you can make it into a glycerite and take it a few times each day if you don’t want to drink a tea. I hope that gives you a great starting place!
