Women around the world have been using herbs to achieve & maintain reproductive health for thousands of years.


We used to spend time in nature.


We used to be close to the earth and familiar with the names and properties of the plants growing around us.


We used to be able to confidently create medicines and remedies from plants to heal ourselves, our children, our husbands, and our communities.


Somehow, we've lost this primal connection to our womb-wisdom.


Our ancient ways and wisdom have become suppressed by patriarchy, by individualism, colonialism, by globalisation.


We can return, once again, to plant-based living- to plant-based healing- to using plants to assist with becoming whole physically, emotionally, and spiritually.


After all, medical technology has its roots in herbal medicine.
