Self-love is vital for a happy & healthy life. Unfortunately, many of us struggle to love ourselves. This can be due to a variety of reasons, including negative self-talk, lack of self-compassion, feelings of unworthiness & low self-esteem.

When you're on your healing journey, you discover so many aspects about yourself that you simply were not aware of before. It can be very overwhelming & emotional at times, but it is also incredibly beautiful. Just like anything else in life, self-love takes work.

One of the best ways to start loving yourself more is by working with herbs that support self-love. Plants have been used for medicinal purposes long before recorded history. And they continue to be used today because of their amazing ability to heal us physically, emotionally & spiritually. As they come from mother earth herself, herbs not only reconnect us to our organic nature but also the divine feminine energy within us all that embodies the very essence of self love.

There are many herbs that can support you on your journey of self-love, but these four are some of my favorites to work with:

Tulsi, also known as Holy Basil, infuses you with its divine energy—body, mind, & soul, making it a perfect herb to work with for self-love.

Chamomile is another wonderful herb for self-love as it is very calming and soothing, helping to ease anxiety and promote relaxation.

Rose is the perfect herb for self-love because of its strong connection to the heart. Rose helps to heal the heart, open the heart, & bring in more love. Rose allows us to be open to new possibilities, yet strong & protected in our self.

Oatstraw is a very nourishing herb that helps to soothe & calm the nervous system. Oatstraw is also helpful in restoring energy levels, making it perfect for when we need a little extra self-love.
Herbs can be used in any number of ways. This includes tinctures, teas, water infusions, salt baths, and oils. They can be used both on and in the body, depending on the concentration and source.

DISCLAIMER: Due to the powerful nature of plant medicine, it is best to speak to your doctor before you begin taking any herbs, even if they are considered safe for most people. This is especially important if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a chronic illness, or are taking any medications.
