About

 

SAMSUNGHey there, Welcome to the little herbal.  My name is Faith.  I live in Colorado with my sweet hubby and 3 amazing kiddos.  I am a certified clinical herbalist.  I studied herbalism and nutrition at the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism in Boulder, CO.  I teach a variety of classes on medicine making, women’s health and kid’s health.  Check out the classes page for a current class schedule.

The little herbal is a place for all of my herbal remedies, body care creations and other kitchen experiments.  The focus is on pregnancy, birth, babies, kids and family health.

Natural body care is a big passion of mine.  As much as I can I make all of our products at home including, soaps, lotions, salves, wipes and even toothpaste.  I am always amazed by the junk that I find in kid’s products, even those claiming to be “natural”.  How often do you read an ingredient list and realize you cannot pronounce half of the ingredients?  Making your own body care products at home is so empowering and it allows you to know exactly what you are putting on your body.

I created the little herbal with the hope of helping and inspiring other parents to draw on natural remedies when caring for their children and to inspire myself to continue learning and growing as a mom and herbalist.

I hope you enjoy it…

    Hi Faith,

    Love your site. I am an herbalist as well, but on the other side of the country in Massachusetts. I hope you faired well in the horrible weather that you in Colorado have been receiving! My brother-in-law live quite near you. I am also just getting my blog up. Great to see others that live naturally.

      Thanks for reading Cassandra! My family and home are safe, but it has been a really tough time for many around us. I checked out “the suburban reaper” as well, love the name. And i particularly enjoyed “my introduction to herbalism”. What a crazy story! Glad you found herbs
