Welcome to the Herbal Hive!

in The Herbal Hivelast month (edited)


Welcome to The Herbal Hive!

We aim to support and encourage writing about herbalism. If you're using plants for healing of body, mind and spirit, then you're a herbalist, and we'd love to hear from you! We'll be running challenges and curating your awesome content, and we're super excited to be in a position to support you where we can!

We believe that an understanding of herbs and plants and how they can support us are essential to an abundant and well nourished life. Connection with the natural world can help us heal and be resilient, independent and conscious beings who walk lightly on the earth with love. As anyone who's worked with herbs will attest, herbs are incredible ways to connect with spirit, nourish our families, feel supported in life, and be at peace.

We welcome all your stories!


We Are Supported by the LOTUS token - a token for alternative health on HIVE

What kind of content can I write on The Herbal HIVE?

We're glad you asked! Here's a heap of suggested topics, but as long as it's to do with plant healing of any kind, then we welcome what you have to say!

  • Your most love herb, and how you use it
  • How to make a salve, balm or infused oil
  • Making incense or smudge sticks from herbs
  • How to dehydrate or process herbs for home use
  • The cultural use of herbs and our relationship with them, ethnobotany
  • Wildcrafting
  • Using mushrooms for anxiety
  • Herbs that nourish us
  • Personal stories about herbs and how they have benefitted us
  • Growing herbs in our backyards
  • Your spiritual relationship with plants
  • Plants and astrology
Rules for Posting in Our Community
  • We prefer single language posts, preferably English. This is both for aesthetic reasons (we like people outside HIVE to read our posts, and dual language can be confusing) and because we have English speaking curators! Saying that, if you are dual language blogger, please make sure you put English first and have an English only title.)
  • Be kind
  • Please post original content - if your content is easily found on the internet, we reserve the right to mute it.
  • Please no blurry images or poor content - we hold you to high standards and will mute both plagiarism and poor content without warning and reserve the right to do so!

Other Tags We Support

We also welcome the secondary use of the tags #fungilovers, #holoslotus, #hivegardens, #gardenjournal, #abundancetribe and others that are related to the broad theme of herbalism.

Use of Images

We welcome you to use our yarrow page divider and our footer below. If you'd like a personalised herbal footer with an image of your choice, please send a small HIVE amount in a memo to @thehiveherbal with your request and we'll get in touch with a beautiful footer for you!

cool! I've got tons I could share....

We hope you do!

Firstly, I love the cover design of the image with the hexagons and the yellow that blends so well with the greens. The smudges on the image to highlight the text. So exciting. Looking forward to reading all these upcoming, amazing posts and all this valuable knowledge that will be shared. This effort is highly appreciated. PS: Gotta love that horizontal line with the herbs!

All the best people show up for the good content. 😘

Msg me sometime?? Wanting to talk herbs and Christmas markets etc.

And yes, you're right - it looks NICE. All things herbal make me happy most every day. 😍

All things herbal make me happy most every day.

Us too! Including your wonderful plant focussed content, which is always second to none.

Thankyou, @yangyanje. We're glad to provide a place that focussed on all things botanical healing and nourishment!

Beautiful project 😍, I love that there is a healing space within Hive just for this. Success and blessings ✨

I think it's a fabulous idea... We have a lot to say about medicinal herbs. Much success and may the community grow.

Really cool idea! Hope to contribute soon

I looked to see if Natural medicine is closing shop and the last post from them alludes to that, but nothing official. This is something I never saw coming and I used to curate for them.

Kudos for keeping it going. Are you going to make use of the in-house chat, rather than Discord? I refuse to use them and think I saw a post from you where you deleted them too.

People are welcome to use either the inhouse chat, Discord, or none at all - it's always better to chat on HIVE, we agree, but Discord is the best we have currently from an organisational perspective.

Wow cool idea.

This is an amazing community! Excited to share this with my friend who really loves green. 💖

Very interesting!! I love herbal... ^_^
