Begin your own Materia Medica by creating your first herb study at our Open House! Use one of these free templates that will be available at the Herbally Yours Open House. What is a Materia Medica? It’s an important tool to help you learn about the herbs in your home herbal apothecary. You will record general information about the herb such as its botanical and common names, what it looks like, and where it grows. Information on growing, harvesting, and preserving herbs is also included. Important information such as uses, preparations, actions, and safety information are also included. The templates posted below will be provided at the Open House along with reference books so you can see how much you can learn about herbal medicine through journaling and creating your own Materia Medica. Bring your children that are old enough to write. There will be resources and an herbalist available to guide you through creating your first herbal page. You can take a template home so you can make copies and add to your Materia Medica one herb at a time.
Remember – Ask to join the private Facebook page Herbally Yours to learn more about herbs, making herbal remedies, and more!
