Leslie Williams (also known as Leslita) Is a Registered Professional Herbalist with the American Herbalist Guild. She was raised by farmers, herbalists and woods wanderers, and has been practicing herbalism all her life. She has maintained a clinical practice for more than 30 years including working in a free clinic setting at festivals, teaching at The Florida Herb Conference, Southeast Women's Herbal Conference, The AHG national symposium, etc, and mentoring herbalists through the Guild at all levels of their development. Most of her early teachers were great herbalists, naturopaths, shamans and healers that you have never heard of, but who worked all their lives doing amazing work in their own communities. Leslie is grounded in Rural Southern and Appalachian Herbalism and Traditional Western Herbalism, though she has trained in Ayurveda, Chinese Herbal Basics, and beyond. She wildcrafts and grows as many of her apothecary herbs as possible, and has a special love for the herbal medicine of trees. From the oldest herbal texts and lore available from around the world, to the most contemporary online research: it all matters in this work of healing with plants. Leslie is currently working on a book about herbal formulation.
