  1. Hi Kalyn: Very much enjoyed your teaching of medicinal herbs,today at the 8Th.Fire
    I remembered the sting neetles,tumeric,yet I forgot the other root?
    Also,I tried to google ‘Rose Mountain”and ended up with Mountain Rose from Oregon,US.
    Is it the same?
    I’m very interested in”the root”the relaxing,happy one.
    Could you please advise me about obtaining some.
    Also,anything else that you can think of that would be relavent.
    Thank you.
    Looking forward to your response.
    Mark Brown.

    1. Hi Mark,

      The root in question is Kava (Piper methysticum in latin). Mountain Rose Herbs is a good source to order from. If you e-mail me at kalyn@kodiakherbal.com I will
      send you the notes version of the presentation from the Fire Gathering. Thanks for commenting on my website!
