Ayurvedic Herbs

If you are new to herbs, experienced with herbs, this episode will have so many aha moments, or insights into Ayurvedic herbs. I had 3 pages of notes myself and have studied these herbs in the past. It was a great refresher, Tamara also spoke to common myths about many of the herbs that I've heard through the years. She spoke about 5 common Ayurvedic herbs who they are for, what there qualities are, and what to consider when taking herbs.
