natural-herbal-livingI have always been into herbal remedies, but I know that my knowledge is very limited. So when I heard my fellow Green Moms Network member had introduced the Natural Herbal Living Magazine and Herb Box, I was ecstatic to have a chance to review the Rosemary box!

I love when a subscription box service comes out that has a whole new concept. Instead of just providing you with information about a different herb each month, Natural Herbal Living Magazine takes it a step further and provides you with the tools necessary to truly understand how to use that herb.

I have always loved the flavor of Rosemary, but never knew much about how to use it beyond roasting chicken and potatoes. I love all of the recipes and tips that came with the Herb Box!

I had my very first Rosemary Infusion (basically a tea made with rosemary). It tasted nice and even Kaylee liked it. I think it would be very soothing when you’re sick (I love the smell of rosemary essential oil when I’m sick).

We also tried the Rosemary Hot Cocoa recipe. Somehow I missed the blender part of the instructions and made it with the chia seeds still whole. The flavor was good, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the texture. Next time I’ll read the directions better :-)

I haven’t made the herbal hair rinse yet, but I have everything set aside to do it when I’m ready to take the plunge with No Poo again.

I love that the herb boxes are always free of Gluten, Dairy, Nuts, Eggs and Soy (the packaging cannot be guaranteed soy free, but no ingredients will contain soy). With so many people suffering from food allergies these days, it’s nice to have a safe option.

The monthly herb box is $30 per month plus $10 shipping and has a retail value of $40-50. If you subscribe to the box monthly, you’ll get a 10% discount!

The magazine itself is very in-depth as well – the Rosemary issue was 37 pages long! I guess there’s a lot to say about Rosemary, and for good reason. It’s an amazing herb!

If you’ve every wanted to hone your herbalist skills, check out Natural Herbal Living Magazine and Herb Box!

    I learned that tis is a subscription service and you get a magazine which discusses one herb a month and also a herb box, sounds very interesting

    I love the herb of the month section and other informative parts of their website. Very easy to learn about new herbs! :)

  3. chelsea says

    I learned that The herb box is created to help you not only have an intellectual relationship with the herb of the month, but also a physical relationship with it.

  4. Kathleen says

    I learned that there is a booklet included that is full of useful information and recipes for the herb of the month. I think that’s a GREAT idea!

  5. Amanda Alvarado says

    I learned that not only do you get the herb of the month but also other complimentary ingredients to make the featured recipes in the booklet

  6. Dianne says

    I love the herb of the month approach. I have thought about doing this exact approach on my own, but it never seems to happen.

  7. Holly Storm-Burge says

    I learned that owner and author of Natural Herbal Living Magazine has been blogging about natural living, herbs and parenting for three years.

  8. Helen May says

    Interesting that they have a herb of the month. A lot of people are finding out that the “folk remedies” and ” old wives tales” are true! Or at least a lot of them are based on helpful advice. Thanks~

  9. Toyia H. says

    I love how they focus on a single herb in many different preparations each month! It’s the best way to really get to know a plant….

  10. Desiree Dunbar says

    I learned that they share articles about how to naturally heal your body inside and out with herbs, which I am in need of!

  11. Megan Parsons says

    I learned that you will learn all about one herb a month, and how it is used by several different experienced herbalists!

  12. Nicole Sender says

    I learned that Natural Herbal Living magazine is available to anyone with internet access and will be available soon (November 2013) as a newsstand app.

  13. Kelly Amos says

    I learned that the authors believe in teaching the public about herbs one at a time by featuring a different herb each month.

  14. Sarah L says

    Here at Natural Herbal Living, we have decided to take a different approach to a self guided herbal education. Instead of just relying on the recipes provided to us by books, we encourage budding herbalists to take the time to really get to know one herb a month.
    Thanks for the contest.
