Date When Celebrated : This holiday event is always held on April 17
Herbalism is an important study and profession. Herbalist Day, sometimes referred to as "Thank a Herbalist Day", is a celebration and awareness of the importance of herbs and herbalists in our lives. According to the Herbal Academy, this day is a "celebration of the many teachers, peers and herbs that have guided us through our journey as a herbalist thus far".
Herbs unquestioningly play a very important part in our lives. There are many, many different herbs, providing medicinal, culinary, cosmetic, and aromatic uses. We use herbs to flavor countless foods. When you think about it, food would be pretty bland without herbs. Medicinally, herbs are used extensively, to treat a wide range of ailments. They are often infused in tea, or used in baths and topical solutions. Some herbs also offer an aromatic benefit. Lavender readily comes to mind. Herbs are an ingredient in many cosmetics and beauty products. Ornamental herbs are commonly used in fresh or dried arrangements. Many herbs serve more than one of these uses.
Herbs are natural remedies for many ailments. Herbalists believe they are better for you, than chemical medicines. Are herbs in actuality better or healthier for you? That is often the subject of much debate. Herbalists use their extensive knowledge of all the various herbs, to put them to good use for good health.
We encourage you to do two things today: First, if you know a herbalist, thank them for all that they do. Secondly, spend some time learning more about herbs, and how they can be used to make your life a better one. You may find yourself becoming a herbalist.
Happy Herbalist Day!
