When you’re reading the “All About” section in each month’s issue of Herbal Roots zine, you may notice I briefly talk about the energetics and tastes of each individual herb but I don’t really go deep into what that’s about. That’s because the taste of herbs is a whole ‘nother level of learning about individual herbs and how they correspond with individual people. A level I cannot possibly cover in a beginner zine such as Herbal Roots zine even though I know how important they are to know about. So, when my friend and fellow herbalist Rosalee de la Foret showed me this awesome Flavor Wheel she whipped up on the taste of herbs, I was really excited! At least, something I can share with all my subscribers that will let them understand what those tastes are all about and why they are so important when learning about herbs!
This chart will not only explain tastes very well but will also help you understand why so many herbs have the same uses but different tastes and energetics. It will also help you if you become confused on which herb you should use for your friends and family when they are needing some herbal love. Best of all, it is a free gift to anyone who is interested in learning about this facet of herbal learning! Simply go to her website to download it. While you’re there, be sure to check out the video she’s posted to briefly tell you how to use it!
