Show 115: Herb Lab – Pumpkin Spice – Hot, New Level for a Seasonal Favorite
Pumpkin Spice may be delicious but it is also very healing. Each of the traditional spices in this blend can stand on its own as herbal medicine with a long history of healing around the globe. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove and allspice warm and tonify in their unique way. There is a good reason why this tropical spice blend is such a good match for the cold winter months. Join Sue and Candace as they give the herbalist’s view of these kitchen herbs and why they need to be a part of the herbalist’s first aid kit.
