Herbal Radio

Oct 14, 2022

Herbal Radio is pleased to release this week’s episode with our good friend, Lucretia VanDyke. This conversation was especially exciting as Lucretia’s first book, African American Herbalism: A Practical Guide to Healing Plants and Folk Traditions, just came out on October 4th! It was amazing to speak with Lucretia about her history, her brand-new book, and learning how to use plants to help us heal from past emotional luggage. Stayed tuned for a special book giveaway the beginning of 2023!

With a journey that began when she was a little girl mixing herbs, mud, and roots on her grandparents’ farm, Lucretia VanDyke has had a lifelong connection to the plants. She has been in the wellness industry for over twenty-five years. Her quest for knowledge and storytelling has led her all over the world to learn about remedies, traditions, and ceremonies from indigenous healers.

One of the foremost experts on Southern folk healing arts, Lucretia integrates rituals, plant spirit meditation, holistic food/herbal medicine, and ancestor reverence into people’s practices.

Lucretia has worked and trained with many internationally known spa and skin care companies. She is a holistic educator, speaker, herbalist, sacred sexologist, ceremonialist, spiritual coach, intuitive energy practitioner, diviner, author, and world traveler. Lucretia brings her vivacious spirit and her message of ancestral connection in herbal practices to inspire others to embrace their unique relationship with the plants. Teaching herbal classes, cooking, storytelling, and foraging in the woods learning native medicine charges her soul.
