January Herbal Blog Party: Warming Herbs

Yael Grauer has hosted the January Herbal Blog Party on warming herbs this month here.

January’s herbal blog party is on warming herbs. Several herbalists helped participate to share what helps get them and their loved ones through the winter.

April Horton wrote not one, but two wonderful posts on warming herbs! 10 Herbs & Spices for the (Winter Time) Herbal Medicine Chest and  Winter Bliss Warming Energetic Massage Oil

Rosalee de la Foret of HerbMentor.com fame wrote a beautiful piece, Finding the Spice of Life: Cinnamon.

Though not specifically a blog post, Herbal Roots Zine has a great (and affordable) issue out on ginger, an awesome warming herb.

In Yael Grauer’s post, Finding Warmth in the Heart of Winter, she wrote about warming cooking spices in the desert winter, cooking with asafoteida and drinking mulled wine in Oxford.

Beth Gehring shared an amazing assortment of herbs, vitamins, vinegars, oils and foods in Green Living 101: Creating Vitality and Enhanced Immunity through Diet, not Drugs!

Susan Hess from the Farm at Coventry focused on mustard in her fascinating piece, Pass the Mustard, Please!

Sarah Head brings us back to Medieval days in her piece about Grains of Paradise, Something Old, Something New.

I wrote a post on the theory of warming herbs as seen in Chinese medicine at Herbs to Warm You Up.

Last but not least, Sean Donahue outlines 4 gently warming herbs in his piece, Stirring the Sluggish Body and Spirit.

A special thanks to all participants and readers, and to Herbwifery.com, where the herbal blog parties were born!
