I recently wrote an article for the Herbal Academy blog all about a lesser-known but quite useful herb, Queen Anne’s lace.
In the article, I share how to properly identify Queen Anne’s lace from her, sometimes deadly, look-a-likes, some fun folklore surrounding the herb, how it can be used for wellness purposes, and some sample recipes you can make to put this herb to use in your life.
As soon as that post publishes on the Herbal Academy blog, I’ll link it up right here. I just know you’re going to love it!
In the meantime, though, I wanted to share a bit of Queen Anne’s lace wildcrafting education with you.
As you might know by now, I’m a big fan of bioregional herbalism. Bioregional herbalism is getting to know and use local plant allies where you live.
It’s not that I would never use an herb outside of my area, it’s just that if I have an herb at my fingertips, why would I not learn how to use it?
Since writing my article on Queen Anne’s lace, I decided to walk through my property and harvest some of this herb for my home apothecary. I would like to get to know this plant a bit better, and now that I’ve done a good bit of research on it, the next step is to actually use it.
Today, I’d like to take you along with me and show you how to positively identify and use Queen Anne’s lace in my latest herbal YouTube video.
If Queen Anne’s lace is local to you then let me encourage you to head out and positively identify it (Please read my article before doing so. There are some deadly look-a-likes to know first!) and harvest some plant parts right away. Collect enough to use some fresh as soon as you get home as well as prep some for storage for later use!
