The Herbal Apprentice: Plant Medicine and The Human Being

If you ever wondered if there is more to plant medicine than knowing a plant effects the kidney or has anti-inflammatory actions you will love this book.

The Herbal Apprentice is not just about plants, their chemistry and actions; it’s about learning to think like a herbalist.

  • Discover how to see the body/mind as a landscape where the elements, earth, water, fire, air and space mingle creating health or disease.

  • Learn to interpret a plant’s medicine through your senses, their chemistry and your dreams.

  • Explore how traditional healers used plant medicine, caring hearts and a focused mind to help other find wellness and balance.

  • Develop confidence in your abilities to help others using plant medicine while unearthing your unique gifts as a healer.

The Herbal Apprentice leads you into the complex, elegant dance between plant medicine and human being.

It is available for purchase through Amazon.

I normally devour books, but this one is the kind that you read slowly, savour and reflect on. Thank you Abrah Arneson for sharing your spirit, soul, and your wonderful teachings in this amazing book.

Chris Chabot – Student of Plant Medicine

The Herbal Apprentice is unique and special. It introduces herbalism on a deeply personal, heart-felt level; and uses metaphors of nature to explain complicated physiology to a lay person or budding herbalist. Well done!

Abrah has an amazing mind that explores the elements of plant and person in an incredibly thorough and exciting way. She is a gifted story teller and teacher….if you are considering exploring herbs this is where you should start:)

Dani Pyper – Herbal Apprentice

Reading Abrah’s book is akin to having a long conversation with her over a cup of tea. It is endlessly interesting, open, informed and brimming with her signature brand of loving kindness. There is much of value there for a range of natural medicine aficionados, students and practitioners from neophytes to professionals.
