The Herbal Health and Healing booklet gives a comprehensive introduction to 32 common herbs around us and how to use them in many ways to make our own medicine for childhood and many other issues.
It includes a symptoms and remedies chart, instructions on how to make infusions, creams, and tinctures, and a garden diary for you to fill in as part of reconnecting with your own local environment along with an A4 Koanga Sun Calendar, which is double sided to enable you to collect your own data and create your own sun calendar.
More about the Sun Calendar
The ancient Celtic people divided the year into 8 festival seasons, created by taking the solstices and equinox’s and then finding the mid points between them, creating 8 seasons. Each season was remembered and known for those things particular to that season, and each season was acknowledged and celebrated. Here at Koanga we have used the basic 8 seasons, and found those things in each season that we would like to celebrate, and drawn those things into our own Calendar. One side of the wall chart is our Koanga Sun Calendar, and the other side is left open for you to create your own calendar out of your own experience and your own environment / ecology.
It’s all about connections and celebration!
