Herb of the Month - Rose



Wild Rose (Rosa spp.) Reminder- to stop and smell the roses. Herbs to relax the heart. What is Wild Rose? A shrub that may grow to about 5ft. Smooth stem, this beauty is tough and hearty with sharp thorns and serrated leaves with 2-3 pairs of leaflets, plus pink, red, or sometimes slightly white flowers and scarlet hips. Rose happens to grow quick abundantly throughout the Treasure Valley especially throughout the foothills and along the Greenbelt. Note: where you find the rose petals in the early summer, you will find rosehips in the fall/ winter. Parts of Rose used: flowers, buds Rose Benefits Rose petals are an uplifting addition to herbal teas and may reduce stress and help heal heartache. Even just inhaling or looking at parts of roses may impart their healing properties. Rose brings joy and opens the heart. Rose is a gentle astringent for other body systems, helping tone and tighten an inflamed GI mucosa, and may also support the nervous system and reproductive systems as well. With its astringent and nourishing properties, you may notice rose is often featured in skin care remedies (and rightfully so!) Interested in hearing more about Rose? Tune in for this podcast with Herbs with Rosalee w/ Damiana Calvario Ready for more Rose? You can find Rose in these incredible blends at The Vervain Collective, as well as in Bulk Herb and Powder.

Dr. Pierce's Healthy Belly Jump Start class and a freebie for you!



Perhaps you've heard it said that "all disease starts in the gut.” We prefer to think of it as “The road to health is paved with good intestines!” (thank you to Sherry A. Rogers for that gem:) 2023 is the year of the happy, healthy belly in Dr. Pierce's practice. She's been busy working on several resources and courses focusing on digestive health (which is inextricably linked to all facets of health!) To start the new year out right, Dr. Pierce is offering you free access to one of these resources: the Healthy Belly Habit Journal!

For those of you who are local, please join us for the ongoing in-person installments of the Healthy Belly Jump Start class (see below) and watch your inbox and our IG/FB pages for more info about upcoming group classes and programs in the Roots/Vervain classroom. As always, you can click here to schedule a one-on-one in her onsite private practice. Don't let bloating, gas, pain, heartburn, and malabsorption get you down in 2023; join Dr. Pierce for relief!
