EP26: Herbalism with attitude

It’s round two with the Seed Sistas. Britain’s most irreverent herbalists.

For the past few years, they have been making waves in the plant community.

Overthrowing the colonialism that has turned herbalism from something we all used to do, into a profession where you’d think you need a PhD just to touch a plant!

Colourful, fun and full of vim (No, not the cleaning product), they discuss:

  • why plant medicine is for the people.
  • how they got threatened with jail time for selling a herbal balm.
  • why educating people in self-care and herbal rebellion is a revolutionary act.

Always a laugh, never tame and with firecracker energy that makes the Y2K firework display look positively drab.

The Seed Sistas are a joy to listen to and an inspiration for anyone who wants to wrestle control of their health back from Big Pharma, and government control.

Hold on to your knickers. Here we go…

About The Seed Sistas

Sensory Solutions Herbal Evolution is an arts and health-education, Community Interest Company run by the Seed SistAs, Fiona, Karen and Belle. We promote empowerment, autonomy, freedom, health, and diversity through teaching about plant medicine. All our courses, publications, talks and tours promote the aims of the CIC: to educate about and promote the growing and use of herbal medicine. We combine medical training and years of clinical experience with our love of creativity and plants to put herbal medicine back where it belongs: in your hands.

Like so much in this fast-paced materialistic society, it is easy to ignore the connections between a bottle on the shelf in a health food shop and a living, growing plant out in our local surroundings. Many of the herbs contained in bottles in shops come from other continents. We use local plants and aim to demystify complicated medical jargon with something accessible to all.

We believe that a positive shift occurs in each person that is educated about the harvesting and utilisation of herbal medicine. A reconnection with our beautiful plants and planet ensues. That’s how we will be able to build a whole new system of healing relevant to today. A system that takes the pressure off the NHS by empowering people to treat their minor ailments with abundantly growing herbs and a system that builds healthy communities by connecting people to their local plants, to each other, good health and our beautiful Earth.
