In this episode, we’re speaking with Rosalee de la Forêt, author and Registered Herbalist passionate about helping people discover the world of herbalism and natural health. Rosalee is a wonderful storyteller with colorful tales that draw you into the experience. She does this beautifully with her teachings and books, and today we’re going to dive into her latest book co-written with Emily Han, called Wild Remedies: How to Forage Healing Foods and Craft Your Own Herbal Medicine.
In this interview, you’ll hear about Rosalee’s healing story and plant path - how she overcame a rare diagnosed terminal autoimmune disease within six months of taking herbs and changing her diet - free from her debilitating symptoms. She shares how a chance meeting with Tori Amos and magical synchronicities led Rosalee to write Wild Remedies.
If humans interact with the wild, is it still wild? This is a question we explore in this interview and why Rosalee’s life’s work is deprogramming the belief that we are disconnected from nature. Rosalee shares her belief on what is wildness and wild land and our role in relationship with the natural world and plants. She offers helpful questions to ask ourselves about how to support the resilience and livelihood of wild places and how to harvest with awareness and know when it is time to NOT forage.
Rosalee’s goal is to bring wild remedies into all areas of our lives, and I find her book Wild Remedies to be a lovely experiential exploration that awakens the senses and enlivens the connection to nature within.
While we didn’t go deep into specific recipes, Rosalee has been so gracious to offer listeners and Patreon supports a special gift! Click the link below to access a free herbal jumpstart course and access her Sweet Celebrations ebook full of delicious herbal recipes.
