New herbs!

My herbs came today!

And I immediately had to tear open the box and take a look and smell. Tug my one year old kitten helped me with this process. He also likes the smell of herbs and insists on helping me down in the pharmacy when I make up formulas. His help often ends up with me taking longer to make something but I’m glad he is excited about it and I appreciate the company.

I was able to take an herbal class from Jeremy Ross this past weekend. He has been an herbalist for about thirty years and has a very unique way of working with western herbs in a Chinese way. Since I work manly with Chinese herbs this was very exciting. I feel like I have some new tools to work with in some of the animals I treat. So of course I had to go online to my favorite Western herbal store, Mountain Rose Herbs and once I got started I just couldn’t stop.

Being in an herb store for me is like a kid in a candy store.

“Look at what they have, oh I have to order some of that!”

It’s good to have something to get that excited about!
