This year has been a whirlwind of herbal learning!!! I was in an herbal class earlier this spring taught by one of my favorite herbalists, Patricia Howell, and learned sooooo much.

Since the class was February or March, now I can’t quite remember, I did not pay much attention to finding Mimosa since it was not going to bloom until June. But I did go out and buy the extract – Albizia Calm. Notice on the label, it supports mental calmness, yeah I’ll take some of that thank you!
