Bevin sits down with Denise Cusack who wears many interesting hats–clinical herbalist and aromatherapist, nonprofit leader, homesteader, educator, wife, and mother of two unschooled teenagers. She sees her roles as interconnected, just like the natural systems in her garden.

Bevin and Denise’s conversation touches on health justice, access to affordable herbal medicine, ancestral knowledge, and juggling a diverse set of responsibilities at work and at home. Midway through the episode, Denise shares a hilariously lucky story of a fermented glass explosion in her kitchen. Learn what’s next for Denise in her pursuit to foster community-based cultural exchanges for herbalists and growers.

    56:05

    This episode of Herbal Radio comes from Mountain Rose Herbs’ Free Herbalism Project recorded November 12, 2021 and presented as a webinar for thousands of herbalism enthusiasts. Join Erika Galentin, MNIMH, RH (AHG), for an exploration of aromatic plants as useful tools for supporting our minds and bodies on our journeys to wellness. We will take a brief tour of the inner workings of our sense of smell, how aromas are perceived, and their influence on our memories and emotions.

She holds a degree in Herbal Medicine from the University of Wales and the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine and is a professional member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (UK) and the American Herbalists Guild (USA).
