Grandmother Cedar, also known as Western Red Cedar, is an unparalleled medicine. Not only can anyone easily, ethically harvest as much as they could possibly need, but it has so many uses that it really excels at. We’ll specifically talk about its us in respiratory illnesses and skin conditions, but we’ll briefly cover it’s many other uses, too.
This is a daunting one for me, because the importance of the cedar tree to the Salish peoples of this region is impossible to overstate. I am so inspired by and grateful to those people, and humbled to live on their homeland.
We talk about herbalism and spiritual health, and how to integrate the various faiths and traditions we carry with our work as herbalists and healers. No matter your spiritual beliefs, this work can be a prayer, for you and anyone you care for.
