Harvesting Vitex Berries
w Ellen Zimmermann
Learn how to effectively harvest Vitex agnus-castus seeds to make a fresh, beneficial herbal tincture which serves as an excellent female hormonal balancer. Ellen grows 13 Vitex (AKA Chaste tree) on her rural South Austin property. She has been preparing fresh Vitex Tincture for 14 years now and has seen positive results from its use. They don’t call her the Vitex Queen for nothing!!

The Mission of EZ Herbs & The Austin School of Herbal Studies

By "Sharing the Wisdom of the Plants" I encourage others to use safe and effective herbs and products to practice preventative health care.  Learning to use fresh, high quality and organically grown hand-crafted herbs, helps to provide long-term physical and emotional well being. By subscribing to environmentally conscious practices, we assist in preserving our natural resources so they may be enjoyed by all.

What people are saying about Ellen & EZ Herbs..

"Thank you for the wonderful herb walk/talk on Saturday at the American Botanical Council's Herb Day. You have such a gentle spirit and vast knowledge and wisdom. I enjoyed your talk and learned so much. I look forward to taking some of your classes in the future to learn even more. I'm making my herb wish list right now based on your talk and your dynamic dozen."

"Thank you so much for your information on the uses of Cleavers and Chickweed. I did indeed rip these out of my yard, a little scared by their abundance. I did think at the time, "too bad these aren't useful for something" and now I know they truly are!  Knowledge is a wonderful thing-so thank you for yours and for sharing."
Sincerely, Lynn

"Everyone should have the pleasure to meet and catch the Ellen Energy.  How lucky Austin is to have such a treasure as we all learn to create a better life with herbs."  
Bill Swail, People's Pharmacy Owner

Every so often an individual is blessed in their field of expertise to become a leader in their community. Ellen has been blessed in this way and has planted the seeds of healing, physically and emotionally, in all of those individuals lucky enough to have taken her courses."
