Have you ever wondered how to make your own herb-infused oils, homemade bug repellent or thyme-infused honey? What about the best herbs to use for a good night’s sleep? Those answers and more can be found in some of the many works published by Thyme Herbal with illustrations by Chelsea Iris Granger.

Based out of Massachusetts, Brittany Wood Nickerson founded Thyme Herbal as a teaching platform to instruct courses in herbal cooking and homesteading, to publish supportive and informative works, and to share her knowledge and experiences of herbs and healthy living. The Thyme Herbal website includes a blog in which Nickerson posts healthy recipes and observations.

Granger and Nickerson jointly created the Everyday Living Series that includes booklets and posters designed to educate and share daily tools that can inspire and help cultivate a healthy lifestyle.

The Everyday Living Series includes a kitchen medicine poster, a moon calendar, a spring cleaning pamphlet, and two zines: Cooking for Winter Health Wellness, and Sacred and Mysterious: Healing Wisdom and Herbal Lore for Those Who Menstruate.

These works, Nickerson says, are supposed to serve as supportive guides for individuals to interpret and use as resource for building their own healthy lifestyles. In many of these publications, she writes to the reader about her experiences with these topics and encourages them to create their own experiences with these same topics.
