As some of you know, I am the owner and grand herb box stuffer at Natural Herbal Living Magazine and Herb Box. It is a fairly new venture that has gotten so much positive feed back in just the 3 months we have been open!

What is Natural Herbal Living? It is an ezine dedicated to getting to know one herb a month on a deep and intrinsic level. Today people who study herbs get a quick glance at what this herb really can do. Rosemary for hair, Ginger for stomach issues, Rose for skin, but people don’t get the opportunity to learn the true power of each herb. Every month we help readers to build a lasting relationship with one herb. Each magazine issue averages over 40 pages packed full of useful information on how you can incorporate these herbs into your every day life.

In order to help you learn more about each herb, we also offer an herb box. Each herb box will have in it the things you need to make some of the recipes in the magazine. These herb boxes help you get to know the herb on not only an intellectual level, but also a physical one, learning how it works with you and your body. Learning how each herb works with you will help you learn if it is the right herb to use in a specific situation. “Should I use peppermint or ginger for this stomach issue?” You will know, because you have used both, and know which works best for your body.

Since I am the owner I can’t really do a review of the box and zine because, well, I own the business. What do I know? Here are some reviews from other bloggers and subscribers.

Delicious Obsessions says:

“I think one of the things that sets this magazine apart (in addition to the awesome info), is the herb box subscription that you can sign up for. Since each month’s issue of the magazine will focus on one specific herb, you can sign up to receive an herb box that will give you the opportunity to really develop a relationship with and understanding of this herb. This hands-on experience is how many people learn best, so I find this to be an invaluable tool…” Read More

Natural-Herbal-Living-Herb-Box-Review1-1024x1012Homemade For Elle Says

“My Herb Box contained:

Ginger Root

I received a nice-sized ginger rhizome, along with a recipe to make my own Ginger Tea.  Ginger tea is easy to make, has wonderful flavor and aids in digestion, as well as eases nausea.

Wild Ginger Flower Essence

Handcrafted using water, brandy and Wild Ginger Asarum canadense, Wild Ginger Flower Essence was included in this month’s herb box, and can be taken internally four times a day.  Ginger Flower Essence can be used to attract healthy relationships.

Ginger Essential Oil

Ginger essential oil has powerful therapeutic properties that can aid in circulatory, musculatory, respiratory and digestive ailments.  Included in the guide is a convenient dilution chart for essential oils… Read More

Heather The Hippy Gardener Says

“I thought I had been pretty familiar with rosemary.  I cook with it regularly.  I’ve grown it.  I’ve used the essential oil quite regularly.  But, WOW!!  This really went into much greater details than I’ve ever learned about this wonderful and versatile herb.

Each issue covers every detail possible.  For example, did you know that rosemary is an anti-depressant herb?

Also covered is how to use each herb in all its forms: dried, fresh, essential oil, flower essence, etc… Including several recipes for you to try out.  I learned about rosemary tea and how to use rosemary for hair care.  There’s a yummy recipe for Rosemary Hot Chocolate that I can’t wait to try out when the weather gets colder!!” Read More

Marlys at This and That Says

“I found this magazine easy to read and very informational, with wonderful pictures.” Read More

My Blessings Homeschool Says

“At first I wasn’t sure how interested I’d be or how much could possibly be written about one herb. I was quickly shown that my doubts were quite off. Natural Herbal Living magazine offers a wealth of information! The magazine included everything from scientific information to practical uses to historic and cultural information about the showcased herb.” Read More

Hybrid Rasta Mama Says

“The Magazine is certainly geared towards the adult audience in terms of reading level and some comprehension level but the great thing is that the information is presented in a way that both the novice and the experienced herb user will benefit. It is also written in such a way that parents can easily explore the content with their children.” Read More

Please take the time to read the reviews. I think you will see my self and our amazing authors put our hearts into this project to make it a truly amazing experience.

The November herb of the month is Rose. This flower is not only beautiful and an ancient beauty remedy, it also has many wonderful medicinal benefits as well.
