The herbal knowledge hiding in your kitchen

You already know that it’s important to eat healthy, nutrient dense foods.

There are also tonic herbs hiding in plain sight at your local market’s produce aisle. Cooking regularly with these well-documented herbs and roots will lead to better overall health… which means more energy and better sleep.

Ancient herbal wisdom meets modern science

Karta Purkh Singh Khalsa bridges the gap between ancient herbal wisdom and modern scientific proof. He is an herbalist, practitioner, scientist, educator, cook and parent.

K.P. Khalsa has over 40 years of experience practicing Western, Chinese and Ayurvedic herbalism. He is the world ambassador and former president of the American Herbalist Guild, was chief formulator for the Yogi Tea company, and is on the senior editorial board of the Harvard Natural Standard. K.P. is a professor at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Bastyr University. He is author of many books, including The Way of Ayurvedic Herbs.

For those busy people looking for a PROVEN PATH to improving their health with herbs, there is no better way to go about it than by following the ancient advice from Hippocrates…

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

Blending traditional herbal wisdom and modern scientific studies, K.P. Khalsa helps us turn back the clocks, so we can look at medicine the way we used to… as food.

What people are saying…

Culinary Herbalism gave me a whole new perspective on using food as medicine. I never gave food enough credit for what it can actually do for me and how to use it with a dual purpose. Now I plan my meals with a different eye. I try to use all of the potential in food and as a target for specific ills or issues. K.P. is very smooth in his presentation and covers a ton of territory giving examples and ideas.

D. Hummel • New Cumberland, PA

I was somewhat “on the fence” about taking this class as I know how to cook and use herbs in our food. I am so glad I did! Learning the thought process behind incorporating culinary herbs into cooking was profound for me. I have been trying the recipes and have found myself thinking more and more of how to make our food even better for my family. Everyone should take this course, I was so happy I did!

Martha Barnard • Petersburg, OH

Before taking this course, I thought I had to order all of these specialty herbs or have an amazing botany background to properly identify and harvest plants in the wild. Now I understand that there are some powerful foods waiting for me in the kitchen or a few miles down the road at my local grocery store. Mind blown and empowered.

L. McDermott • Washington

I really enjoy K.P. Khalsa’s teaching style. He breaks everything down so that you can easily understand and utilize the information. Culinary Herbalism is beautiful and well put together. The recipes are fabulous and I can’t wait to make them all. I truly believe that food is medicine and very much appreciate his perspective on this and his way of teaching us how to use it that way. This is an amazing value for the money.

Carrie Andrews • Meridian, ID

K.P. Khalsa has a down-to-earth style of teaching. For someone so experienced and knowledgable, he delivers the info in layman terms. Very encouraging! The fact that it’s not intimidating makes me what to try the recipes.

June • Langley, B.C.

Culinary Herbalism changed the way I think about the foods and herbs I’m feed my family. I was enlightened and intrigued by many foods used in other cultures and plan to expand my use of international foods.

More reviews of Herb Fairies...

“The Herb Fairies is very heartfelt. It brings a lot of joy. It's totally awesome. The drawings are wonderful. The energy is wonderful. And it is a beautiful season of stories. Thank you for making them.”
J. Bevington’s daughter
“The stories are really well written. There is a pattern that keeps my daughter engaged knowing the flow to expect in the stories but it doesn't get boring or old ever. She could listen to the audio of the books over and over again. She is able to find all of the herbs out in the wilderness here where we live. The only thing that we wish is that it wouldn't end!”
J. Bevington
“These colorful, exciting books almost come to life. They are amazing one-of-a-kind tales of herbal enchantment that draw you into the stories while teaching herbs and their uses.”
J. Mosorjak
“My kids and I didn't know anything about herbs when we started Herb Fairies. We have been completely changing over to a healthier lifestyle...We could all understand about herbs because all different learning styles were used.”.
K. Knapp
“This series is for everyone—I was afraid it would be too young for my 11 year old, but it wasn't. It was also not too young for Mom! It is chock-full of fantastic, easy to understand information.”
A. Martin
“I have been using herbs for over 40 years and have had many books on herbs. The way Herb Fairies is presented is logical, easy to use AND easy to understand. And the recipes are fun!”
T. Allen
“I got this for my grand kids, but I learned more than I could imagine. Now when they come over, we have that special "herb" time with Grams. ...You are never too old to learn.”
S. Decker
“As a homeschooling family with all age ranges, we couldn't have had a better, more fun program for learning the herbs we love!”
L. Tousignant
“I love that the plants described in Herb Fairies grow wild, or as easily available culinary herbs here in Australia. The plant keeper's journal and Herbal Roots Zine make plant identification easy, too. If Herb Fairies had been available when I was a child I'd have retained my childhood love of plants and studied herbalism many decades before I did. What a wonderful, fun series!”
C. Hooper
“My son loved the characters, he talks as if he knows them! It has helped all of my children with their plant identification skills. They love harvesting herbs to make goodies. The fact that they gathered herbs and made things with the herbs is so impressive to their relatives. They have requests from family members to make them herbal products. Thanks a bunch, Herb Fairies!!!”
T. Robbins
“There's just something about watching my children wander through an open field "listening" for the plants. Oh, who am I kidding? I do it, too! Thank you, Herb Fairies, for opening our ears and eyes to the amazing world of plants!”
C. Connors
“Our girls walk around spewing information about herbs growing around our house. They make poultices and decoctions and are so excited about learning more about the herbs that grow in our everyday life and how we can use them. It's so rewarding to see them so excited about what others call 'weeds'!”
L. Grim
North Carolina
“My daughter is 6, and she absolutely loves the Herb Fairies series... Whenever someone gets hurt or is feeling sick, she goes straight to the Herb Fairies to find the best remedy. She has learned so much from this series, and it has greatly deepened her understanding and appreciation of nature's goodness.”
E. Wolfe
“Herb Fairies is a phenomenal way to teach children about plants how they heal and nourish us. It is also very important in creating a consciousness in us and our children that we must take care of Mother Earth. It pays the idea forward for children to become stewards of our planet.”
