Why Rebel Herbs?
Revolution is a beautiful thing. The idea that someone, a rebel, has challenged the status quo and offers their interpretation of the world we live in, brings hope to all humanity.
The image of a rebel as angry or disrespectful would be a flawed view; I see nature and herbalism as the purest expression of rebellion. It is a rebellion against the sheep, like following of the intelligence of modern man and the total rejection of ancient herbal wisdom. Rebellion is the triumph of the mind over a passive acceptance of the ideas from those who thought to speak on the subject before us. Rebellion is not evil and it is not anger, it is mankind refusing to accept that it has reached the furthest edge of wisdom and understanding. It is the method through which we grow.
Rebellion is the beautiful process of becoming; no truth is proven until it is challenged. This is not dirty, angry or controlling, it is the basic process of growth that is natural to all people.
