Vivienne Campbell BSc (Hons) MNIMH qualified as a medical herbalist in 2003 and has worked as an herbalist since then, initially setting up and running her herbal medicine clinic. In this episode, Vivienne talks about her dedication and reasons for re-igniting the trend toward foraging and wild harvesting plants and her passion for educating others in herbal uses for medicine and skincare. Back in 2004, she started to teach classes for the public at an organic garden and heritage seed bank, and over the years, these have expanded in all sorts of unforeseen ways. Vivienne loves to help people learn how to use herbs simply, effectively, sustainably, and joyfully. She is equally happy showing a beginner how to make their own cough syrup at home or training a group of experienced professionals on how to legally & professionally incorporate herbs into their products. She teaches herbal medicine, wild food foraging, and natural cosmetic-making in Ireland, Portugal & the UK, and worldwide via her online courses.
Vivienne appeared on Irish television many times. She is a popular guest speaker and has given lectures and talks. Herb walks at various events, including the Botanica conferences, Aromatica Australia, Formula Botanica, The American Herbalist Guild, health shows, heritage events, organic gardens, etc. She was interviewed for the upcoming aromatherapy documentary 'Uncommon Scents: The Movie.'
Whichever level of experience people have, Vivienne loves to help them discover and work with local herbs. She believes it is everyone's birthright to know how to use common local plants as nutritious wild foods and health-enhancing natural remedies. She loves to empower people to take more control of their health (and improve the health of our environment, too) by sharing this knowledge and teaching these skills. She is currently writing her first book.
