One of the most essential tools every herbalist should have is a functioning herbal materia medica. It’s a personalized journal and herbal reference that makes it easy to look up herbs & formulas that you’ve have studied. Essentially, it holds a lot of detailed information in one place. What are materia medica? This type of journal and herbal reference has been used for hundreds of years. Materia medica is a Latin phrase that literally means “healing materials.” Published examples span from ancient times all the way to modern books. Materia medica has an important role in herbalism. The oldest ones give us insight into how plants were used in very different times and cultural settings. Although reading materia medica is a good way to deepen your knowledge, learning is also about being hands-on. That’s why creating a personal materia medica is a useful learning tool that all herbalists can benefit from – beginners straight through advanced! Your materia medica becomes both a study aid and a reference. It takes time to build a good materia medica, but it’s worth it! Ready to start your own? Join the July herbal challenge!
