Each beautifully curated box will have a monthly theme based on a medicinal herb that is designed to give you a deep understanding of herbalism. This is done through 3 phases… LEARN, GROW, HEAL. We will walk you through growing thriving plants, education on the medicinal properties of each herb, and hands on learning of creating medicinal remedies.
Our January box will feature the medicinal herb Valerian. This amazing medicinal herb has been used for over 2000 years and we will be focusing on its proven potential to promote restful sleep. With an estimated 50-70 million people in America reporting sleep-related problems, there is a good chance that valerian may turn out to be just what you need. Each box will have everything you need to grow valerian, learn its potential uses and create an amazing medicinal remedy.
