The Kosmic Kitchen was born out of a friendship. Sarah and Summer met when sewing the seeds for a community garden. It was there that they discovered herbalism, and the plants’ incredible capacity to heal. Their goal is to make kitchen herbalism accessible to all, so that everyone can have a connection to the plants.
In our conversation, Summer and Sarah talk about their own healing journeys from chronic illness to health by trusting their intuition and the healing power of plants. They remind us how sacred each meal can be and why making your food beautiful is part of the medicine. They share tips on spiking everyday foods with herbs and why a daily practice of healthy meals can do more than any pill or potion.
“We have Mother Earth to provide us with these plants that are their own beings and they have their own stories and things that they want to share with us. And if we really listen to that and can be part of that experience, it can be such a rich experience and also a deeper healing,” says Sarah Kate.
