Episode details

Hawthorn is a favourite of many herbalists! Plus so easy to forage and the berries are ripe for picking right now so I wanted to share this with you in case you wanted to have a look for some nearby.

You can of course buy it from a herbal supplier but if you wanted to get more confident with trying to make your own medicines this is a nice one to add in.

It is absolutely fab for anything heart-related so I think given the rate of CVD and trauma, we have a powerful friend here!

I think I covered:

  • Hawthorn- where it grows and identification, philosophy of local plants

  • Hawthorn flowers and uses

  • Hawthorn berries, making medicine and uses

  • Bit of a tangent on curses, Venus and the emotional uses
