Herbal Folklore: Stories of the Silvani with Guido Masé

Join us in the coming weeks as we explore herbal folklore, stories of the Silvani, with Guido Masé.

As we pass into the seasonal festivities and approach the winter solstice, we are reminded of ritual and tradition. The time honored tradition of storytelling gives gifts of insight, mystery, and allure from a world unknown to us. Since the art and craft of herbalism has strong roots as an oral tradition, we felt it appropriate to share some aural folk tales with you. In the coming weeks we'll release five short videos highlighting a few of Guido Masé’s cherished stories of the Silvani in this mini-series on Herbal Folklore. Guido Masé is a clinical herbalist, storyteller, and author of such books as DIY Bitters.

Herbal tales of Rue, Nettle, Mugwort, Hazel, Alder and more!
