Using herbs to heal the body is an ancient practice, but in the 21st century, herbal medicine is also a worldwide industry - in 2019, consumers spent more than nine billion dollars on herbal supplements.
In The Business of Botanicals, Ann Armbrecht describes her journeys to herb collection sites, farms, and factories in North America, Europe, and India to tell the stories of the people and places behind the bottles of herbal products on grocery store shelves.
The Business of Botanicals is the first resource of its kind for listeners who wish to take the extra step in curating ethically sourced products. The author also calls on listeners to acknowledge that such conscious capitalism is only a beginning step along the challenging journey of addressing the social and ecological consequences of our ways of living.
