Welcome to Our Healing Roots, a blog exploring natural medicine that returns us to the roots of health and wellbeing. Our Healing Roots, LLC, is a private natural healthcare practice and experiential learning center that advocates the safe use of integrated, natural medicine. Many healing ways have gone by the wayside with the advent of conventional medicine. While it is important to receive professional medical advice for serious conditions, there are many things we can do at home to prevent disease and maintain our health. The Latin word for doctor is docere, which means to be a teacher. Our Healing Roots wholehearted embraces the importance of teaching in healthcare, so that people feel empowered about their health and wellbeing.

Holiday Giftmaking Class Last Night

Our 2013 class season is slowly winding down. We had our Holiday Giftmaking Class last night. (Our final 2013 hands-on class will be a Sourdough bread class in November.)
We enjoyed great holiday treats...
Pictured above is a melon brain, little fruit salad goblins, and a stack of bread bones.
We crafted trays of lavender-bergamot-oat soap. This is a great soap for irritated skin conditions!
We adapted Rosemary Gladstar's luscious recipe for warming bath salts (cinnamon, roses, ginger and cardamom). Oh my!  The original recipe can be found in her latest book Rosemary Gladstar's Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner's Guide.
Finally, we made a great salve to help support healthy skin healing.  These tins are cooling off.
It was a great night!  Thank you to all who participated. Keep an eye out for our upcoming 2014 class list so you can join us for the fun next year.

  1. Looks like a very fun day. Is the recipe complicated to make the salve?
