Meet the Herbalist: Emily Ruff + Conference Giveaway!

We are so excited to share this interview with Emily Ruff, the Executive Director of the Florida School of Holistic Living and a community herbalist who has practiced the art and science of plant healing for over a decade. Her studies have taken her around three continents where she has studied under healers of many traditions. Emily’s dedication to preserving bioregional medicinal plant traditions and ecosystems led her to serve as a Board Member of United Plant Savers. Inspired by a need for greater connection among her regional community, she founded the Florida Herbal Conference event in 2012, an event which continues to sell out annually.

Book Giveaway: The Herbal Kitchen + Red Powder Recipe

Herbal Sprinkles are one of the most simple and satisfying ways to incorporate more herbs into your cookery. The key to using herbal sprinkles is to take them out of the cupboard and keep them next to where you cook and eat. I have several herbal sprinkle combinations right next to my stove and blender and on the kitchen table. If the herbs are readily accessible you get into the habit of using them every day, pretty soon you wonder how you lived without such a pleasing array of herbal food enhancement. I have an entire chapter on herbal sprinkle recipes in The Herbal Kitchen. I have to tell you that by far the most popular sprinkle that people have loved the most is Red Powder. It didn’t start out with the name Red Powder; my family would just say, “Hey, pass the red powder, would ya?” So the name stuck. […]
