Today is Herbalist Day

Herbalist Day
On Herbalist Day we celebrate herbs and the wonderful people who study them.

Herbalists have studied the medicinal, healing, and nutritional value of plants throughout the ages. The field of study has developed greatly over the last couple of decades. Herbalists can now prepare herbs in such a wide variety of ways, and they are sold in pharmacies or online.

Humans, across cultures, have cherished the secrets of plants. Herbalism dates back to 4000 B.C. Sadly, many plants with health benefits have gone extinct over the centuries. For example, the silphium plant, which was used in Ancient Rome for cooking, contraception, and perfumes, is now extinct. What a loss for humanity!

While not all these characters can be classified as herbalists in the strictest sense, today we bring you three sapphic books with characters who garden.

Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?

Make sure to check back each day for your daily calendar trivia, along with more great book recommendations! Any day spent reading sapphic books is a day to be celebrated!

Do you enjoy all the features I Heart SapphFic brings you each week? Elevating sapphic literature is our passion, but it takes a lot of resources to keep this site running. Please consider supporting our efforts via Buy Us A Coffee!
