Herbs are often classified into actions—the effect that an herb is believed to have on the human body. A sedative herb, also known as a relaxant, calms and soothes the nervous system, and can help induce sleep. The stress response is likely to present as signs and symptoms such as increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, palpitations, poor digestion, insomnia, and anxiety amongst others. Sedatives are often used to help a person who is unable to sleep because of stress causing these problems. -

Mahonia nervosa- Oregon grape, grows as forest ground cover under Douglas-fir second growth. We have LOTS of this plant gracing us on the west coast of BC. herbally used for its berberine content which is very anti-microbial and healing to mucous membranes
the medicinal content is in the roots or the base of the stem near the roots. It’s the inner layer under the bark that is bright yellow and full of berberine
consider ourselves lucky, here on the west coast we have tons growing and elsewhere it can be very scarce. mahonia aquifolium also abundant in BC but predominantly seen more in the interior
Oregon grape named for blue grape like berries in the summer, edible and delicious in a jelly
go on a hike this weekend and go check some out #plantnerd#myherbalstudies

The Vetiver struggle is real
Today I am sharing my super easy DIY tips for making oil life easier. Are you tired of waiting for you Vetiver to drop out of your bottle? I replaced mine with a glass dropper cap from Amazon Prime - best decision ever Pro tip, these dropper caps, no matter where they are from, just don’t seal as well as the caps that come straight from dōTERRA so avoid letting them lie on their side!
