Transform, Heal, and Remember with the Power of Plants and Ancestral Medicine

The Art & Practice of Spiritual Herbalism

Category: Spiritual Book

Master Herbalist Karen Rose is a first-generation immigrant from Guyana with ancestors from Ghana, the Congo, China, and India who continues her grandmother’s legacy as a healer and herbalist. In The Art & Practice of Spiritual Herbalism, she shares her wisdom on how to partner plants and rituals to guide the process of self-healing. As you alleviate physical symptoms and heal emotional and spiritual imbalances, you will see how plants can help you stand in your power, strengthen your intuition, and provide protection.

This guide to harnessing the power of plants is a practical tool for working through the symptoms of body disease and the underlying emotional and spiritual issues. Organized by major body systems—circulatory, respiratory, digestive, liver, sexual, skin, nervous systems, and immune health—The Art & Practice of Spiritual Herbalism gives a brief overview of the physical mechanisms of the system, the spiritual correspondences associated with that system, and the plants, remedies, and rituals that can be used to bring oneself back to healing and balance.

Accompanied by beautiful color illustrations of the plants, the organs they affect, and their related spirits, or orishas, each plant profile includes:

  • Botanical and pharmacological information

  • Planetary correspondences

  • Ethnobotanical and historical use

  • Healing properties and indications

  • Methods of preparation and dosage

Applying this herbal wisdom, the recipes include:

  • 4th Chakra Heart Oil for healing a broken heart, also helpful for healing generational trauma

  • Inspired Sleep and Dreams Tea to inspire dreams

  • Breathe Easy Steam to improve respiratory health

  • Immunity Chai Tea to fight off cold and flu viruses

  • Laying Hands Stomach and Womb Oil for indigestion and menstrual discomfort

  • A Castor Oil Pack for Liver Health to remove pain and swelling from sprains and bruises

Karen M. RoseTrained in Eastern and Western Herbal Medicine, Master Herbalist, Karen M. Rose created an outlet for her teachings and healing modalities with the opening of Brooklyn-based Sacred Vibes Healing and Sacred Vibes Apothecary in 2002.  Her inspiration for this work began as a child in her native home of Guyana, where she was exposed to how African, Caribbean and Latin American traditions profoundly influenced plant medicine and community healing. The legacy of these lands is the foundation of Karen’s spiritual and healing practice.

 Karen and her work have been featured in a variety of media outlets, including on The FEED, featuring culinary celebrity Marcus Samuelsson, the New York Times, Black Enterprise Magazine, Organic Life, and the New York Daily News. Aside from her dedication to healing, Karen is also a devoted mother of three, who she proudly believes are her best apprentices.
