Candace and Patrick talked about Wildcrafting this week. Patrick shared his disappointment at the shattering of his romantic idea of how Anna Rosa does it…and considered the reasons why his fantasy and her reality aren’t quilt the same. Candace answered an Herbal 101 question on herbs for neuropathy.
“I have worked as a herbalist in Iceland for the past three decades. After all this time, I can honestly say that I love what I do. I love tending to my patients and seeing them getting better. I love handpicking my plants in the pure wilderness of Iceland and making medicine with them. I also really love formulating and making all my products by hand. I am so very grateful for having discovered my passion so young and to have managed to make a living out of it too.”
