Rosemary's Remedies AND an Incredible Giveaway!

I am so very excited to announce that LearningHerbs.com and Mountain Rose Herbs have just released a new video series with the fairy godmother of Western Herbalism, Rosemary Gladstar. 






I have been privileged to have already watched these beautiful videos and I am so excited that this is finally ready for you all! Be sure to watch the video to learn more about this! 




To support the opening of this video series I am going to be hosting a really fun and generous giveaway on my blog! 

What is being given away? 

For today and tomorrow I am hosting a giveaway for a set of Bee Balm delights! All of these have been made from Bee Balm that I have gathered from my garden. Bee balm is really hard to find in commerce so this is quite a treat! 

This set includes: 

1. Bee Balm tincture (2 oz - value $22)
2. Bee Balm infused honey (4 oz - value $20)
3. A generous amount of freshly dried Bee Balm. (value $15)

In all this giveaway totals $57 worth of bee balm - but since you can't really find Bee Balm in commerce (and because I grew and harvested from my garden with love) they truly are priceless!



You can learn more about the virtues of Bee Balm here. 

How you can enter the giveaway. 

There are SIX ways you can enter this giveaway. You can do all six and increase your chances of winning! Remember to leave separate comments for each thing you do!

1. Visit this link to watch John's fun video about making a cough syrup AND sign in to see Rosemary's wonderful video. Leave a comment on this blog post saying that you watched the videos. 

2. Leave a comment on this blog post about how Rosemary has made an impact in your life. 

3. Sign up for my newsletter and get a free ebook on the Taste of Herbs (Look for the sign up in the upper left column of this blog.) Leave a comment on this blog post to say you did so! If you've already signed up leave a comment about why you like my newsletter (I'll just assume you like it if you are on it!). 

4. "Like" my Methow Valley Herbs page on Facebook and leave a comment on this blog post saying you did. (If you've already liked my page you can leave a comment about what you like about the page.)

5. Share this photo on my FB page and leave a comment on this blog post about it. 

6. Tweet this blog post and leave a comment on this blog post about it.



The giveaway ends at noon on October 11th, 2012! At that time I'll draw the winner's name, announce the winner and start the next giveaway. 

In total there will be three separate herbal gift sets to win! 


Good luck!

Rosemary's book "Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health" was my introduction to practical herbal medicine making. I've had great success with several of her recipes.

Gabriel Kingsley said...

This is such a great give away; and the Hard work from John and especially Rosemary! I have always been inspired by Rosemary and her books. I own and love Her Family Herbal book, and Have her Home study course "The Science and Art of Herbalism"!! She is a great teacher.

Lucia Marie said...

Excited to make some and loved the video.

Vanessa said...

I loved the video and have already made some honey-onion syrup of my own :)

Valkyrie of Odin said...

I'm about to watch the videos now. =)

Rosemary is among a few of the reasons I decided to begin learning more about herbs and remedies.

I will sign up for the newsletter, too, as well as tweet and repost on facebook wall... I liked your page already. I like the little tips and some of the photos.

goddess in the groove said...

Rosemary has always been my "go to"..my Family Herbal is loved & worn :). I already enjoy your newsletter, thank you for all the wisdom you offer :).

Geneviève Côté said...

Watched the video, Had a good laugh as I saw John run off on a plane to meet Rosemary!!

Vanessa said...

Rosemary's book, Herbal Healing for Women, was one of my first herb books - and I still use it all the time!

nancy kelly said...

What a fabulous give a way! I did watch John and Rosemary's videos. And I started the syrup right after!! Rosemary's book "Herbal Healing for Women" was the very first herbal book I very bought. She is one of my favorite herbalists! I already subscribe to your newsletter. It is ALWAYS full of fabulous information. I had already liked your fb page some time ago. I did share your picture and I often share other posts from you fb page! Again, always so full of great information!

Kristen said...

First, Rosemary is wonderful. I've referenced her herbal healing for women book countless times over the years and tried lots of the recipes and remedies with great success. I can't really say enough good stuff about her, she is absolutely wonderful. Rosalee, you too are wonderful, with all the knowledge that you so freely share with us, the experiences, the love of the plants that shines through you. Thanks for encouraging us all to engage in the learning process and herbal community by offering this giveaway. I harvested some wild bee balm about 8 years ago, and I'm just getting to the bottom of the tincture. I love the taste and smell so much that I've used it much like one would use a flower essence, by the drop, not the dropper, for emotional disturbances and grounding. there is nothing quite like it. so special. thanks again.

Geneviève Côté said...

I like your blog because you share awesome ressources and I like that you have a energetic approach to herbs and health.

Plus you love french and I'm french!

Barbara Meza said...

I love bee balm and yes, it is a hard one to find! It was such a pleasure to meet Rosemary last year. Also...this is a dynamic giveaway!!!!!!

Lucia Marie said...

My first herbal book was Rosemary's Herbal Healing for Women. It is so worn now because I use so often. I am an herbalist now because of Rosemary. She is so inspiring and just a wonderful person.

Rosemary's book "Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health" was one of my first books. I use the cream recipe all the time.

Reverend Jeannine Bakriges said...

Thank you so much for having such a wonderful give-away! I have two of Rosemary's wonderful books, "Herbal Healing for Women," and "Family Herbal." Both books contain priceless information and are 'go to books' time and time again. BTW, I LOVE bee balm anything and everything. I especially like watching the bees enjoying bee balm flowers!

Ellen Demotses said...

I love this Rosalee's blog for the wealth of information that is well organized and easy to search. It has also led me to the mentor program!

Herbal Tonya here said...

I first met Rosemary at a conference in 1989 in Ashland outside of Boston and she had just brought Juliette De Baracli Levi over from Greece and the way she spoke about how Juliette had inspired her has always stuck with me....pure authenticity and love! she has done wonders in fostering community!

Sharon Moonbeam said...

Ok, Rosalee, I signed up for your newsletter, got the little recipe book pdf. (thank you!!) and I have already "liked" your new page...and I shared the photo. You are amazing and so knowledgeable and helpful and such interesting posts!!

As for Miss Rosemary, a wonderful Green Goddess as well ; ) So much wisdom I have learned from her books!

Thank you both!!

Marcy Lautanen-Raleigh said...

Loved the video. I do not think I have ever seen anything but a photo of her before.

Marcy Lautanen-Raleigh said...

When I was just starting to grow herbs I had two books I carried everywhere to read in my spare time. The Family Herbal by Rosemary Gladstar was one of those books. I wanted to know which herbs to choose for my gardens and how I would use them. It was a treasure.

Marcy Lautanen-Raleigh said...

I have only been subscribing to the newsletter for about 6 months and I cannot believe all that I have learned in such a short time. You have such a fun writing style that I know I can and should try everything you suggest. You make me not afraid!

Carey said...

I am so thrilled that Rosemary is sharing with us via video! Her Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health helped start me on my quest to learn about herbs. I have just signed up for the newsletter and cannot wait to see what nuggets I gain from it. I have posted and liked her on facebook. Thank you for the video as it made sense of a recipe I knew about but wasn't certain what to do with. Thank you also for sharing your wisdom, knowledge and work! What a great give away!

Cate Harris said...

Amazing video, liked on facebook.

possum59 said...

Loved the videos - John has such a great sense of humor. This is something that anyone can make and have on hand. Thanks to Rosemary for sharing.

Rach said...

Also signed up for the newsletter and have your e-book open in another tab as we speak =). Very good info!! Also dig the various therapeutic angles you show; angles a lot of other info doesn't share....ie, the elements and energetics. I've been a fan of Methow Valley Herbs on facebook for a few months now, and what I like most about it is your pure approach to factual and simple info that you convey in such a personal and passionate way. I feel like you're talking to me as a friend instead of At me. And the fact that you are willing to share what you are currently learning yourself is inspiring. Love your work!!

Jocelyn said...

I enjoy Rosemary's books for their simplicity, good photos, easy recipes to follow.

Rosalee's Newsletters for easy to follow, great step-by-step photos, and very informative even for beginners.

Cory at AquarianBath said...

Nice video. I liked that she has been using so long that she forgot where it came from.

Karyn said...

What a cool (and simple) idea! Thanks!

Karyn said...

I just "liked" your Methow Valley Herbs page of facebook. Looking forward to investigating it!

Jen Schellings said...

Several years ago when I began my journey in learning herbalism, Rosemary made it easy to get started making teas and syrups with her "Family Herbal". Because of being able to make something so quickly and with little fuss and that my son would readily take, I was encouraged to continue learning other easy herbal recipes while learning more about the herbs themselves. She made it simple and not seem like some complicated chemistry!
Thanks to you both :)

Karyn said...

I enjoy your newsletter for the teachings it offers - and the simple recipes!

Crystal said...

Nana B said...

What a great giveaway! I am pretty new to this stuff but am very interested in learning all I can. Video was very informative. What an awesome place she has!

Crystal said...

I also subscribed to you and I just LOVE all your herbal wisdom!!

Wynter said...

I watched the great video and can't wait to try the syrup!

Wynter said...

My first herbal book was Rosemary's Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health and I love it! I have dozens of other books now, but I still refer to this one often.

Lisa said...

So happy to see your use of bee balm. I found a lot of wild bee balm this year and enjoyed spending time sitting with the beautiful blossoms.

Nana B said...

Watched the video and liked On Facebook!

Lynn said...

Hi Rosalee --

Thanks for doing this giveaway! My copy of Herbal Healing for Women is 18 years old and like an old friend. I enjoyed the video and just finished drizzling out the last bit of local honey from my squeezy bear to make the recipe. It's timely, as people at my house are starting to get a bit cough-y.

I have already done some liking and following and subscribing at your various sites in recent weeks and am enjoying getting to know you! Thanks again.

How Rosemary has impacted me - I'm new to herbalism, and Rosemary's book "Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health" was one of my first books, so she's been one of my first teachers in the way of herbs!

Ellie Koch said...

Rosemary has always been my herbal hero. I love her books and just the way she writes speaks to my heart. She is darling and fun. I met her at the first Traditions in
Western Herbalism conference, the same time I met you Rosalee. I love all the knowledge you both impart. It is wonderful. Thanks so much!

Rita said...

Watched the video, will be making the recipe to try.

One of my first herbal books was Rosemary's Gladstars Family Herbal. The book is still one of my favorties and I go to it often. It's actually on my bedside table now. Her famous face cream is my favorite. I have watched that video over and over as well. I am super excited about this new series. Thanks, Rosalee for the opportunity.

Jane said...

A few years ago I bought a copy of her Family Herbal book, and lent it to a young friend (a teen), who loved working with it so much that I let her keep it. I guess I was awed and delighted right then, seeing how Rosemary captivates us all! -cheers, Jane

Thank you for all that you do. Keep up the GREAT work.

Lydia Gray said...

Rosemary put me on the path to herbal healing with her SageMountain herbal training program. I love her books and the way she explains that any reader is capable of healing and natural beauty.

Pat Oliver said...

I share the photo and watch the video. It is amazing what we can do with the food we have in our cupboards!!!

Anonymous said...

I was a moderator for a class Rosemary did at the SE Women's Herbal Conference a year or two ago and it was fantastic. It was the largest class and the most fun. She even signed her book for me! I use it all the time.

Rebecca Belletto said...

My sister gave me a very accessible book on herbs that Rosemary authored that I loved reading, and continue to love using the recipes and remedies at home.

Sadhvi Gantenbein said...

Gosh, I've known about Rosemary for a long time. Like the 70's. I met her once...about 10 years ago when she was in Asheville. Great talk. Her "perfect cream" for the face is one that I still make. It is the best face cream. And really nice to see that she is "coming out" a bit, by doing these videos at her place. Wow. What a treat to see where she lives; the area, etc.
Thanks, and I hope I win your creams!

Marcia said...

Rosemary was one of the "gateway herbalists" that started me on the path I'm now on! I still remember visiting the store she founded many years ago in Northern California. It felt like a pilgrimage to me, even though she had already moved back east by then!

Robb Clifford said...

Second time watching the video since 5pm today! Gonna give it a whirl after my toddler falls asleep seeing as she and the wife both have colds right now!

Robb Clifford said...

I'm brand new to the world of herbs thanks to a program at the Park district I work at. As I always like to learn a little of a subject prior to the program, I asked the presenting herbalist what books I should read before our program. She recommended and she gave me several, but rosemary's herbal recipes for vibrant health seemed like a great book as I browsed its few pages. In the past couple months,I've read it several times and it's really opened my eyes! Since then I've got several extracts, oils and more 'brewing' on the two new kitchen shelves I installed for my herbal supplies!

Robb Clifford said...

Singed up for your emails a couple weeks ago. I love reading the email and blog posts. Just not enough hours in the day.

Wow... well I've already liked, watched, shared, and subscribed so.. only think left is WHY!:

I've always loved the information you've shared on herbs. Very well thought out and beautifully presented. I know I'll likely never get to see some of the herbs described in person, but feel I can "know" them - even if through another's eyes.

Sarah Josey said...

I love Methow Valley Herbs on FaceBook because of all the amazing tips and articles you post. There is always something fun to learn

Rachel Soumokil said...

I watched this video and loved the suggested variations. I used the onion and honey remedy last year and it worked really well. I wish I had an wood burning stove to keep it going all season in. How cool is that!

PATRICIA said...

Rosemary's simple syrup recipe seems like such good food medicine. It would make a nice addition to a hot cup of herbal tea, too.

Okay, you fine people-- I loooovvve bee balm so much. I love it more and more. I made an oxymel this year, but had limited supplies, so it's a wee batch.

1)I watched the video and am going to do it as soon as I find organic onions. Does the syrup need to be refrigerated, I wonder?

2) I am not that familiar with Rosemary Gladstar, but this all has me wanting to get a book of hers. My friend did her correspondence course and showed me the printed materials, and they're impressive, yet accessible. I look forward to learning more from her.

3) I already liked Methow Valley Herbs for a while now-- I'm a Rosalee fan. You give so generously of your knowledge, and it's always so beautifully presented with gorgeous photos, a sense of humor, and good recipes.

4) I shared the photo on my facebook page.

I'm not much of a tweeter, so I'm not doing that.

What a lovely giveaway!!

Thanks! (whether I win or not)

I love Rosemary's books and her recipes are very straight forward for beginners. But yet timeless as well. Her wisdom is just as valuable to me today as it was a decade ago. Very approachable and easy to recommend to others!!

I have no made this particular cough syrup yet but good news, well kind of, all my kids have coughs so I know what I'll make tomorrow to try!

I am soooooo excited that Rosemary is making videos now! She is one of the most inspiring people ever! I love her spirit, and Herbal Healing for Women (along with Back to Eden and the Holistic Herbal) were the first books I ever owned, well, actually my mom owned it and that is how I discovered Rosemary. She has played a huge role in my herbal journey, and though Ive still yet to meet her, so much of how I think has been influenced by her. To me she completely embodies the spirit of herbalism and we are so lucky to have her as a teacher and the plant are lucky to have her as an ally, she expresses their beauty so wonderfully!

Last night, I woke up in the middle of the night with a sore throat, so I got up and made myself some syrup to nip it in the bud, and then when I couldnt go back to sleep, I got online only to discover this new video from Rosemary and the synchronicity did not surprise me one bit! Thanks so much for making these, I enjoyed watching every bit and I will be waiting patiently for each and every one, will be a nice way to take a load off after a long day of class and studying!

Finamoon said...

I watched the videos I am gonna now try and make some. (commented on the video as websurfergirl19) Wow! That is simple! I love honey and garlic for coughs, but never thought of combining them with onion for a syrup. Very nice!

Finamoon said...

Rosemary is a inspiration to me. She sure is a big help in helping me learn herbs and remedies. Such a great teacher and a wonderful mentor.

Rosemary secured a place in my herbal heart many years ago when we met at a conference. I am overjoyed that she is making videos and am thrilled to get a glimpse of Sage Mountain. The cough syrup is simple and easy to make; I can't wait to show my students! Thank you Rosalee for participating in Rosemary's video launch.

Isn't John just the cutest thing...I love the way he starts out at home and "travels" to Rosemary's!

I "liked" and love your facebook page. Your photos always make it seem "live"! I can almost smell the fragrances of the herbs.

I had already posted Rosemary's video link on my blog and both my facebook pages (personal and Rocky Creek Valley Farm) so instead I shared your entry about the Bee Balm. Which, by the way, I am lusting after! (The Bee Balm, not the entry). Have a monumental day. :) e PS I don't tweet. :)

Rosemary's books are full of timeless wisdom and still as valuable to me today as 10 or 15 years ago. Her recipes are easily approachable for beginners and easily adaptable for the more experienced. She has definitely been a role model on my path as an herbalist! Love her!!!

I also am fond of your work just as much Rosalee!! Thanks for the chance to win some of your goodies! :)

I love everything about Rosemary Gladstar, who she is, (a trail-blazer for the herbal movement for many years, and still going strong) her many recipes, including the onion syrup recipe video, which I watched yesterday, her timeless herbal correspondence course, but mostly, her inner beauty, which shines and sparkles through everything and everyone that she touches, (directly and indirectly). Thank you for doing much of the same, on the West coast, Rosalee! -Cyra

How has Rosemary impacted my life? I've learned to trust my intuition and tune into nature. She was a strong influence when it came to the realization that herbalism doesn't have to be complicated...that "less is more".

I have been interested in herbs and plants since childhood, but it was through apprenticeships with Rosemary Gladstar that I felt welcomed into this tradition and empowered to actually use herbal medicine. During hard times in my life, I remember the herbs, and I also remember Rosemary to connect to that authentic place and remember that I am on the right path.
