Wild Woman Way with Susun Weed (EP#23)

Today Tahnee chats to Susun Weed, the grandmother of herbs. Susun is a true wise, wild elder, a wonderful story-teller and exposes women to ideas outside of the mainstream. Susun attended the School of Life, and is passionate about everything to do with women, health and herbs. Tahnee and Susun discuss standing in your power regarding your reproductive rights, feminism versus being female and how there are no guarantees in life - we just have to do the best that we can. The ladies chat about empowering women to get back to their intuitive wisdom, via the ancient botanical system. You guys are going to love this one!

 

You will hear about:

  • The true history of blue for boys, pink for girls (who knew?!)
  • How Susun makes herbal infusions
  • How potent nettle can be for women
  • How all minerals are not created equal

  • How standardisation of herbs is detrimental to the botanicals properties
  • Bio-individuality means herbs can have different effects on us
