Herbalism is the study or practice of the medicinal and therapeutic use of plants. The medicinal benefits of herbs have been known for centuries. We have always been dependent on plants for medicine, food and healing. The healing properties of herbs have not changed through the years – what was a healing herb a few hundred years ago is still a healing herb today. It is important to follow the recommendations made by an experienced herbalist. When used properly herbs are safe, gentle and effective.
Joanna Helms, Registered Herbalist and Professional member of the American Herbalists Guild (AHG), shares her passion for traditional herbalism at Mama Jo’s Sunshine Herbals. All visitors are welcome to stop by, browse the herbal products and other specialty gifts, while enjoying a delightful cup of herbal tea.
What sets Mama Jo’s apart is the onsite Herbal Apothecary. “All herbal products are handmade on the premise to allow for the highest integrity,” explains Helms. Mama Jo’s offers a wide variety of bulk herbs, handmade herbal products (culinary, teas, tinctures, lotions, salves, and soaps), custom formulations, essential oils, and herbal supplies. When questions arise, Mama Jo’s herbal trained staff willingly shares their knowledge. To determine a specific herbal plan, Helms offers private consultations. The in-depth consultation provides a personal herbal protocol to achieve well-being.
In response to great demand, Helms authored a customized herbal course “Fundamentals of Herbalism.” The course delivers a deeper understanding of the art and science of medicinal herbs, as well as their applications. Helms presents herbal workshops and presentations throughout Florida.
