Blending Herbs: Guidance for Crafting Effective Herbal Formulas

Nature offers a bounty of solutions to improve our health.

Here’s my advice for creating herbal remedies:

1. Follow Herbal Energetics:
Understand the properties of each herb (alterative, diuretic, nervine, etc.) and blend them appropriately. Pair stimulants with relaxing nervines to prevent overstimulation.

2. Include Supporting Herbs:
Some herbs enhance each other’s benefits. For instance, black pepper boosts turmeric absorption, and ginger and turmeric have synergistic anti-inflammatory effects.

3. Get the Dose Right:
Dosage can vary due to plant parts, growing conditions, and preparation methods. Consult resources to determine safe, effective dosage ranges.

4. Aim for Balance:
Create blends that support different body systems needing assistance. For example, a stress formula could include nervines, adaptogens, and herbs for adrenal and thyroid function.

5. Avoid Excessive Ingredients:
Simple, elegant blends allow each plant to shine. Too many herbs may reduce effectiveness or cause adverse interactions.


By understanding the unique properties of each plant and thoughtfully combining them, herbalists can create remedies that work in harmony with the body to support optimal wellness.

As an Herbalist, blending medicinal plants is a truly amazing gift.

Peace and Blessings as you serve as a Herbalist!
