A Note About Herbal Healing from Jordan.
I have loved plants and natural ways of healing for as long as I can remember. When I was about
10 years old I recall dragging my mom into hole in the wall health food stores so I could check out
everything they had. I was simultaneously enchanted by these bottles, droppers and essences of
plants and also sensed a familiarity and a waking up of a knowing that I already possessed.
I come from a lineage of indigenous women healers with the closest link I know of being my great
To me herbal healing is the people’s medicine.It is an act of reverence to nature and one of rebellion
to our current healthcare system and standards of wellness and beauty. It is also an honoring and
protection of sacred wisdom that deserves to live on through future generations.
It was the first kind of medicine that existed for both people and animals and offers not only physical
healing but a renewed perspective on health and a connection to the earth.
Herbal healing is about reawakening and preserving ancient ways of knowing while empowering
people to tend to their own health and to the health of their families.
It is an amazing feeling walking into the woods or through a local neighborhood and being able to identify healing plants. Through my work as an herbalist I have had the honor of working with hundreds of women and girls (and a few men too), teaching them about the mysteries and magic of plants. Education is a fundamental aspect of how I “practice” herbalism because to me there is no greater gift you can give a person then to teach them how to do something.
By learning about herbs plants become allies and friends that sustain wellness.
That’s the thing about this kind of healing it is not just about using it during times of stress or illness, it is about including plants and natural cycles into how you live your everyday life. It becomes a powerful daily practice.
As a horsewoman and animal lover it made perfect sense to extend my gifts as a healer to animals. It is incredible to watch how animals respond to herbs and very often they will be drawn to what they know they need. I’ve watched horses voraciously drink herbal tea out of a bucket right after their owners claim they are “picky” and won’t take other kinds of medicine. There is a purity in offering herbal healing to animals because they do not doubt if it will work unlike us humans. They can sense the healing available and align their bodies energies with the medicine being offered.
I hope that you will join me in a class, workshop or for a private consultation for you and your 4-legged family member.

My horse Chuck has been on a blend of herbs that Jordan created for about a year. Jordan has been great from the very first phone consultation. She knew just what he needed and got it put together in a timely fashion. Chuck is normally very sensitive when saddling and without the herbs he bites the air and shows discomfort. When he is on his herbal blend he is much happier and quieter while being saddled. He can even be grumpy with his neighbors in his pen but on the herbs he seems much more content. Jordan has done a great job and I appreciate all she has done for Chuck and I.

Before I met Jordan my young mare was having severe cycles every 21 days. She would give herself urine scolding, walk with her head down and a dullness to her demeanor. Thanks to Jordan and her special care and herbal blend my mare now has less side effects of her cycle. No more urine scolding, and she is much more comfortable and happy! Thank you Jordan for your care. Your herbal blend was a savior.
