L. Jaye “L.J.” Bell has been a fan of herbs for many years, but a freak accident in 2013 drove that mild interest into an essential, three-year healing process. Now she is a passionate proponent of the benefits of combining traditional herbal preparations and CBD’s or Cannabis to one’s personal medicine pouch. While learning to walk again, the former journalist gave herself an education devouring 1000 pages a day to learn all she could about healing herself. Her once judgmental outlook radically changed when the ancient wisdom of herbal remedies and cannabis helped her get off of deadly prescription nerve pain drugs. The combination not only saved her life and helped her completely heal from the accident, it also enhanced her quality of life and helped her recover her natural sense of vitality and joy. Now she enjoys growing and foraging herbs on her Maine farm, and sells them at Farmer’s Markets and online. It is highly satisfying when a new customer enthusiastically blurts, “Wow! This stuff really works!” Her herbal salves, teas, tinctures and CBD enhanced remedies are available at www.AuroraBotanicalsMaine.com.
