This episode of Herbal Radio is a rerelease from December 2021 and comes from Mountain Rose Herbs’ Free Herbalism Project recorded November 12, 2021 and presented as a webinar for thousands of herbalism enthusiasts.
Join Erika Galentin, MNIMH, RH (AHG), for an exploration of aromatic plants as useful tools for supporting our minds and bodies on our journeys to wellness. We will take a brief tour of the inner workings of our sense of smell, how aromas are perceived, and their influence on our memories and emotions. This will be followed by a discussion on how emotions such as grief and shame can have significant impacts on how our bodies function. We will also explore how we can use aroma from plants to create new emotions and memories through the power of the myths, metaphors, and stories they can carry to the psyche.
