Herbs have so many gifts! Most of us start out from a framework of, “What herb is good for ‘x’ symptom or disease?” While that’s natural, there’s so much more that we can explore.

Burdock is no exception!

Listen in as Selima Harleston Lust shares how the deep roots of burdock became a friend and ally as she traversed her healing journey from trauma. You’ll also receive Selima’s fabulous recipe for Liver Love Hot Chocolate!

Although everyone’s path will look a bit different, I hope you’ll draw some inspiration from what Selima shares about how a relationship with a plant can look and function.

In Selima’s words, “I want people to explore and to see what invitation the plant is going to extend because, yes – we have all the constituents and the herbal actions and all of the science – yet none of that is going to speak to what you’re going to learn about yourself through your relationship with a plant.”

I loved spending time with Selima and I’m excited to share our conversation with you!
