I Tapped Into My Señora Era By Taking An Herbalism Class

Herbal Academy Classes

Getting in touch with our señora eras also means we can step into the ancient wisdom and healing power of herbs, because that’s what our ancestral señoras used.

We have modern medicine and science to help support our health, but many generations ago, herbs was all señoras had! So when my tia told me that my great grandmother’s grandmother was an herbalist and she had jars of hierbas in her kitchen, I literally jumped at the chance of learning more about what was in my own ancestral line. Like how did I now know this!

I have been taking online classes over at Herbal Academy (our new partner), a virtual haven for new and modern señoras who want to deepen their understanding of herbalism, especially those whose abuelas or bisabuelas were expert herbalists themselves.

It’s been nothing but fun for me. I have been learning about natural skincare, concoctions, tinctures, growing herbs, foraging, and more. I’m learning things I didn’t even know were possible. And what I love is that as a toddler mom, it lets me study at my own pace – even in bed last at night after the toddler goes to sleep, and wake up fresh with new ideas for projects.

Also, how gorgeous are Herbal Academy’s’ photos? Just looking at their book or visuals online are super motivating for me, especially if I am having a low energy day.

What can you expect when you sign up for the class?
