I began to delve into the magical realm of natural remedies and herbal medicine. I knew I wanted my products based on organic herbal ingredients, so the first order of business was to begin learning about these fascinating plants. Like a hungry student, I rushed to the local library and checked out armfuls of heavy herbal encyclopedias.
I would sit transfixed by the sheer variety and history of these little weeds and overlooked foliage. Driving became dangerous, my eyes scanning the side of the road looking for plantain, St. John's wort and yarrow. I was completely and utterly fascinated and my brain did cartwheels at the thrill of learning something new. These healing herbs were beginning to heal my life.
I felt my heart expanding.
