Foraging remains a popular trend among nature lovers and foodies, and the popularity of medicinal herbs and natural medicine continues to grow. Herbal medicine is a regular topic in popular media outlets like Goop and Refinery29 and the subject of bestselling books from Rosemary Gladstar and JJ Pursell.
