Do you love sitting down with a nice book and a cup of coffee? Do you hate having to read a PDF on the computer or an e-reader? Do you want to learn all about one herb a month on a deep and profound level WITHOUT having to print a PDF for your self?

As you may or may not know I own both this site and a monthly herbal e-magazine and herb box subscription called Natural Herbal Living. This is my brain child. My way to bring a new way of learning about herbs to the people, because herbs are the peoples medicine. Outside of the latest health fads, herbs lie, and wait for us to come back to our healing roots.

This is kind of where Natural Herbal Living came from. I was told by doctors I was infertile (PCOS and Endometriosis), fat, and obviously lying to them because if I was doing what they said I would be losing weight. This really made me mad and was just the push I needed to start to researching and focus on healing my self. I discovered real food and stopped eating that processed diet junk, got off of the hormone and weight loss pills, finally started losing weight and GOT PREGNANT.

Now that that fire was lit I started reading more and more about herbs. Taking classes here and there. Working with a local herbalist and I discovered a passion awakened. I always had wanted to be a healer. Growing up I wanted to be a vet, but after working in a vets office decided it wasn’t the right job for me. I was pre-med in college and worked in a hospital as a CNA and Telemetry Tech – until I hurt my back and patient care was a fantasy of the past. My newest passion of herbalism helps me to help people heal them selves.

As a mother of two toddlers, I don’t have much time to see clients but I DO have time to help you educate your self in the use of natures medicines, the medicines humans have been using since humans have been around! The knowledge and the power that has been taken away from us by our current medical system. Mothers used to be able to treat common complaints like a scratched knee, headache, tooth ache, ear ache, tummy aches and other common aches and pains of child hood from their garden and basic knowledge of plant medicine. That knowledge has been lost over the last hundred years, and I am to bring it back!

We focus on getting to know one herb a month on a deep and meaningful level. These herbs are common, generally safe herbs that people have used for ages. We discuss many different ways to use each herb, and are sure to cover any contraindications – either with drugs, pregnancy, breastfeeding, the works. We do our best to cover the bases. You can tell since our issues average 60 pages long!

Now, currently they are published as a PDF file and mailed out to our subscribers on the first of the month, or when they subscribe, but we have had a huge number of requests to publish the  issues in book format. As a paper book you can hold in your hands, flip through with a nice hot cup of herbal coffee, and enjoy without the glow of a computer screen.

You can download our Nettles issue here for FREE to see what I am talking about (because everyone should know about nettles) Nettles – Natural Herbal Living Magazine February 2014.

    I hope you are able to find the print copies, what a great idea. I love all of the great information that you provide and the boxes make it easy. I’d love to see more (just a few, not the focus) ideas to integrate and teach kids about each herb. Thanks for such a great product!

    • Amanda says:

      We have talked about how to teach kids about herbs in several issues. Two of the biggest kid articles we have are in the Dandelion and Chamomile issues, the Rose issue has some fun kid activities as well! Thanks for your support.

  2. Heather says:

    I think this is an amazing resource and I love the idea of print copies to have as references for years (and maybe generations) to come! I’m not sure what I’d love to see more of…maybe more herbs used together? It might be cool to have a combined issue for putting two particular herbs together that you’ve already spotlighted, or a “pairing” issue, where you discuss synergies between herbs.

  3. Amanda says:

    I like the recipes and the information. I just found your blog so I’m not sure what I would want to see more of.

  4. Lisa says:

    i love all the recipes and information. i would love to see more recipes, i have just started and am hoping it will help with my illness.

  5. Stephanie McDowell says:

    I love the 60+ pages of info! I would like to see more ways to use them for replacing modern medicine 🙂 I never had one but thats what id look forward to seeing

  6. Danielle Keffer says:

    I have been studying herbalism and other natural means to heal the body. i am always open to new info.

  7. Rozlind says:

    I love the idea of one issue per herb and since I love natural medicine I love all of it.

  8. Lynda Hardy says:

    Good luck on being able to offer print editions! I really like that each month focuses on a single herb in depth.

  9. Kelly Irving says:

    I love your newsletter, blog and have been so tempted to sign up for your herb boxes! At this time $ is tight so I’ll keep on being tempted! Keep up the great work! I started following you when this was still a dream!

  10. Terressa Ferguson Zook says:

    I appreciate all the useful information. Keep up the good work. This is a nice prize. Thank you for the chance to win.

  11. Any says:

    I love that your website is user friendly, informative & easy to follow. I’d like to see more tidbits about less common herbs & how other cultures have used for years but are relatively unheard of in the U.S.
    Thanks!

  12. Kathy says:

    I’m trying to learn to do and be more holistic and natural, so everything interests me.

  13. Jennifer Perry says:

    What an awesome giveaway! I don’t know what I’d like better the hard copy issues with all the wonderful information it comes with that I could access with out a computer or the awesome herb boxes. I’m on a fixed income and it would be a great blessing. I’m learning about so much from your wonderful website and thanks again for such a wonderful give away.

  14. Michelle Proper says:

    I love learning about different herbs and their many healing properties. I would love more recipes and info on Candida in the future. Keep up the wonderful work 🙂

  15. Wendy says:

    I love using herbs for health i would like to see more on foraging for herbals; identification and uses

  16. Jodi says:

    This sounds like such a great idea

  17. Sandra says:

    I use herbs to cook with all the time. I have raised my own herbs for years. I also have comfrey that is over 100 yrs old that belonged to my grandmother. Love the herbs. hope I win.

  18. Kryste Herring says:

    This is a great idea!

  19. Ghada says:

    I follow your blog for a while now and learning lots from it and it’s such a good source, but I haven’t tried the E magazine (cause I’m old fashion and prefer papers over kindle or pad).So I’m looking forward to the print copy of it!

  20. Mickey Louth says:

    I am just beginning to look to foraging for our medicinal needs; trying to find what we have in our area that would be useful in case ‘it’ happens. The printed copy will be invaluable when I can’t access a computer anymore. I learned what I needed to from you about hawthorn actually. Just found a tree on our property this past year.

  21. Kelsey says:

    I absolutely love that you are doing this. Knowledge is power and this is forgotten knowledge.

  22. Rebecca says:

    I love the wide variety of posts (from raising chicken, to medicinal tea, to recipes). I would just love to see more of how herbs were used historically and more specific recipes of syrups, tinctures, medicinal brews, etc

  23. Abigail says:

    I like that it is all natural!

  24. jo n says:

    I was taught a little bit by my Polish grandmother. Unfortunately, I retained only a small amount and never gave it a thought that using herbs and such was uncommon knowledge….boy was I wrong. As I became older and a mom, I started searching for natural information – that was not an easy task. Now that I have found a whole community of people like me, I am in good company. So much good advise and some you take with a grain of salt and want to investigate more first. I guess I enjoy the fact that I can grow a lot of herbs and such myself. I have been growing my own herbs for culinary and some teas for the past 25+ years. Nothing more satisfying than being able to go out in the morning and picking your own. I think the best is that you know there are no additional chemical additives and such – it’s the way nature intended.

  25. Dolores says:

    I have been dabbling into natural healing and learning as I go. This magazine sounds wonderful!

  26. janea says:

    Ive been learning so much since finding your blog. Thankful for your presence in the natural online community.

  27. I love all of the info on natural living that you offer! We are just getting into it and it’s a slow process, so it’s nice when someone breaks it down for you 🙂

  28. Tena Rockatansky says:

    I am new to the herbal world. I have only just begun recovery from breast cancer and had learned a lot about how my diet can affect my risk of cancer. This led me from eating healthier to wanting to learn more about natural remedies which led me here. I LOVE these issues and look forward to getting my first herb box in August (very sad I missed the Calendula box). I feel I have learned so much already and look forward to much more! I would very much like to be able to get the issues in print. I am a hands on, need to have a portable learning tool to write on, kind of person 🙂 Thank You!!

  29. I haven’t had a chance to try the monthly herbal boxes from Natural Herbal Living as I am on an extremely limited income, while saving for a second, out of state brain surgery for an immensely painful, chronic nerve disorder. From what I’ve read, though, I know I would like the focus each month on a specific herb. I know more about aromatherapy than I do medicinal herbs, so it would be great to learn from people like yourselves who have so much experience with them. Once I heal from this upcoming surgery, fingers crossed, if my fundraiser raises enough to get my husband and I halfway across the country and pay for a hotel for him to sleep at while I’m in the hospital, then I definitely plan on signing up for the print or digital herb boxes. Thank you!

  30. pat says:

    I like the idea of studying ne common herb in-depth. I also like the pictures and recipes. How do i download the free nettles issue? Thank you so much for your work on educating so many about the wonders of God’s plants!

  31. Mary says:

    I love your site and your magazine and herb boxes. I wish I had found out about them earlier, my favorite herbs were in Jan-April. My oldest granddaughter got so excited when I sent her mom the link to your site, she wants a subscription for her birthday. Thank you for all the work you have put into making these publications so educational and enjoyable!

  32. Mindy says:

    just ordered your Box set… for the 1st time can’t wait to get!

  33. Shellie says:

    I am so excited about a printed magazine!

  34. Izzy says:

    Love the magazine, excited to see it in print. I wish I could afford the herb boxes. Keep up the great work. Maybe you could start selling mini kits, I’d love to try certain tinctures, remedies or salves on a small scale before I commit to buying alot of any herb that might not be what I need, just a thought. Thank you for the giveaway!
