July 16 Herbal Calendar

Have you made an infusion of St. John’s wort yet? You don’t need to be ailing to try it out. As an herbalist, you should always be trying out new infusions to see what they taste like and how they affect you, even when you don’t need them. That’s how you learn all about the herb! Be sure to write down your discoveries on the journal pages! Describe how it made you feel when you drank it, what it smelled like, what it tasted like, what color it was, if you noticed any sensations in your body (tingling in the mouth, opening in the chest, relaxation in the shoulders, etc) and so on. And, while you are at it, take a picture and post it on the Flickr! page and you could win a St. John’s wort dye kit!
