    Finding Replacements for Endangered Plants

    Finding Replacements for Endangered Plants

    Say there's a remedy that you really want to work with, but you don't have it available, or maybe it's an at-risk plant that has a threatened ecological status. What are the things that you want to look at in order to find an ideal replacement herb? 
    The discussion today is about how goldenseal is used and some ideal replacement remedies for goldenseal, but on a higher, meta level, really looking at a process for what things you want to do when you're looking for replacing a remedy or finding an adjunct remedy to work with.

    Using Comfrey Safely

    Using Comfrey Safely

    Comfrey is an important plant in traditional Western herbalism, as well as in modern herbalism, but there's a stigma around it too. People seem to be a bit scared of comfrey because of some research showing some of the constituents are potentially dangerous. 
     
    But this is an herb that has been used in Western herbalism both topically and, yes—believe it or not—internally as well for a really long time. Few people talk about the possible internal usage of comfrey. 
     
    But if you know more about its uses and characteristics, you can use it with greater confidence and competence.

    Determining Interchangeable Species

    Determining Interchangeable Species

    The Role of Alcohol in Herbalism

    The Role of Alcohol in Herbalism

    As herbalists, we tend to rely pretty heavily on alcohol as one of our main ways for extracting and preserving the medicinal properties of plants. Herbal tinctures are one of the most commonly used forms of herbal medicine. 
    In modern herbalism, we tend to think of alcohol as great for dissolving herbal constituents and preserving things well. They last indefinitely if the percentage is higher than 30 percent. But what about some of the traditional perspectives of alcohol? Specifically, why do we refer to distilled alcohol as “spirits”?
