Outlander & Herbal Medicine

Gratuitous photo of Jamie Fraser shirtless care of “Starz” network.

One of my favorite parts of the show is the herbal medicine part. Birch bark as aspirin. Vinegar, garlic, and/or witch hazel as antiseptic. All of that thrills me to no end. More than just an interest, more like a “zone” I get into when reading about it/watching Claire at the apothecary, either in this series or in any given book about herbs. I want to learn more! I want to be a part-time herbalist.
