“How you learn about herbal medicine
& not feel overwhelmed...”

Maya wanted to learn how to make herbal remedies to help keep her family healthy. She bought books, subscribed to YouTube channels, and joined a few social media groups.

The more information she found, the more overwhelmed and confused she felt. She wasn’t sure what content she could trust or what she should do first.

After three decades of training folks like Maya in herbal and nature skills, I discovered that in order to learn herbal medicine, you need these 3 ingredients…

HerbMentor blends all 3 ingredients with the secret spice that makes learning fun… adventure!

Since 2007, HerbMentor has successfully helped tens of thousands of people like you lead more meaningful and healthier lives.

All you need to get started is a little curiosity…

More reviews of Wild Remedies...

“I've been studying wild edible and medicinal plants for decades, and I learned a lot reading this book, so if you want to use some of our best medicinal wild plants, this book is a great choice.”
"Wildman" Steve Brill
Author of Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants in Wild (and Not So Wild) Places
“Rosalee and Emily’s seasonal, carefully thought out, and practical approach to common backyard wild medicinals will inspire budding and established herbalists alike. It approaches backyard herbalism to a depth rarely covered in herbals. I can’t wait to share this book with students as required reading in my herb courses.”
Maria Noël Groves
Clinical Herbalist at Wintergreen Botanicals and Author of Body into Balance and Grow Your Own Herbal Remedies
“In this must-have herbal resource, you’ll find in-depth medicinal uses of 25 plants, little-known plant harvesting gems, insightful plant identification and gardening tips, as well as refreshingly creative remedies and nutrition packed recipes. Wild Remedies reads like a joyous love poem to the earth and gives us the compass for a much-needed, regenerative model of harvesting and working with medicinal plants.”
Kami McBride
Author of The Herbal Kitchen
“Masterfully designed and presented, Wild Remedies is an excellent resource for anyone interested in connecting more deeply with plants, the natural world, and the wonderful gifts that plants bring to our lives. The book builds a foundation of connection to the natural world and offers wonderful principles and examples that model how the human community can benefit from connection nature and other people. Ethics for harvesting and values of tending the wild are clear, well-informed and beneficial for the regenerative principles shared. Rosalee and Emily are obviously experienced and knowledgeable on the subjects of herbalism, botany, and the nourishing and healing powers of plants and the natural world. Their approach reveals their deep experience and wisdom as mentors and facilitators of other people on this experiential learning journey. The book itself is beautifully presented with wonderful photographs and detailed illustrations to help with identification. Wild Remedies is a truly holistic and comprehensive map for the journey of nature connection, people connection and ultimately our selves.”
Jon Young
Author and Founder of 8 Shields Institute
“Wild Remedies couldn’t come at a more important time, as humanity’s connection to nature is essential not only for the health of the planet, but for ourselves. This book is a calling for us to re-forge our relationship to the living healing intelligence of the Earth through medicinal plants. Rosalee and Emily have gone beyond simplistic laundry lists of what herbs are ‘good for,’ but paint a holistic picture for how the wholeness of the plant heals the whole person.”
Sajah Popham
Author of Evolutionary Herbalism: Science, Spirituality and Medicine from the Heart of Nature
“Wild Remedies is a delightful blend of wildcrafting wisdom and social tutorial. Few books address foraging with this holistic — or creative — sensitivity. Tips about journaling and how to explore your immediate landscape and understand your relationship with it are thoughtful and thought-provoking. Site assessment, soil biology, and neighborhood health: Does this sound like foraging to you? It is, and in the pages of Wild Remedies the authors show you how to start seeing, and what to do once you recognize what you have seen. Nothing could be a greater gift.”
Marie Viljoen
Author of Forage, Harvest, Feast and 66 Square Feet
“There is solid, foundational know-how in the pages of the book you are holding. There are recipes, stories, and medicines to discover as you seek them, outdoors, over the arc of the seasons. But what stands out for me is how Rosalee and Emily have taken the time, for each herb they introduce, to explore its connections to the surrounding ecology. In so doing, they’ve expanded our attention beyond the human sphere: what a gift! Mindful wildcrafting is a restorative practice in many ways: ecological, medical, spiritual, and deeply personal. Wild Remedies gently guides you through them all.”
Guido Masé
Author of The Wild Medicine Solution
“Connecting with nature is one of the things we need most right now, and Wild Remedies gives us a road map to follow, whether we are just beginning to see the plant world around us or if we are already madly in love with the possibilities wild medicines hold.”
Bevin Clare
President of the American Herbalists Guild and author of Spice Apothecary: Blending and Using Spices for Everyday Health
“This book is an absolute joy to read, full of easy journal prompts and moments for self-reflection all designed to connect you to the world around you. Complex concepts are presented in modern, everyday language making them fully accessible without years of study and multiple degrees. And both people and plants are looked at holistically, creating relationship on multiple levels. Bottom line: I can’t wait to recommend this book!”
Maia Toll
Author of The Illustrated Herbiary and The Illustrated Bestiary
“Imagine a world where people seeking wellness and healing venture outside into their wild spaces as a first choice of treatment. While on this journey, they meet healing allies in the form of plants that they develop mutually beneficial relationships with. The adventure builds as they harvest plant medicine and use these gifts to create their own healing remedies and recipes. This isn't fantasy, this is an easily accessible reality and Wild Remedies is the ultimate interactive guidebook for self-empowerment through herbalism.”
Jeff Carpenter
Author of The Organic Medicinal Herb Farmer
“This is a beautiful, important, and timely book. Emily and Rosalee remind us that the most powerful healing begins with the sense of wonder and gratitude that deepening our relationship with plants and the earth engenders.”
Ann Armbrecht, PhD
