Follow me outside and let me show you the secrets of the plants!

Nature offers us many possibilities to take care of our health.
I want to inspire you to discover the healing properties of medicinal plants.

My aspiration is to inspire people through my work, to try medicinal plants as a complement to pharmaceuticals. Plants can of course never substitute ordinary health care but they do offer some interesting possibilities where pharmaceuticals may not be enough.


Going out into nature to gather your own medicine provides a double-acting therapeutic effect. The walk, being surrounded by plants and trees, the search for the proper plant, choosing and picking the individuals you want and finally going home to prepare the remedy – all this sends strong signals to the body about healing.



I developed my interest for medicinal plant as a child. I was born in Sweden where we traditionally spend a lot of time roaming forests and fields. From a very young age I spent a lot of time outdoors and had people around me who knew a great deal about nature. At age seven it dawned on me that nature is full of wild edible and medicinal plants and that's when I decided to learn all I could about this subject. I've stuck to that path. Years 2000-2002 I took a herbal therapist education at Eklöf's Herbalist School in Stockholm and have made a living out of it ever since, giving lectures and courses and leading excursions.

I have always enjoyed storytelling and to me, the transfer of knowledge is an important part of the job. With that in mind, I began working with radio in 2005, having my own weekly radio programme on medicinal plants. The same year I was recruited to the hugely popular lifestyle magazine Strömsö in Finland's Swedish Television.

After four years of working with radio and television I enrolled on a journalist education, after which I worked part time as a news journalist and news anchor. Years 2012 and 2013 I made a television programme on medicinal plants for the Swedish National Television, Herb School, a programme which was entirely my own production and that I am proud to see broadcast over and over again. Year 2014 I presented The Garden at Strömsö. I still work with Strömsö, which is a lovely production with a great team. I also sometimes freelance as a photographer.

During the Covid lockdown 2020 I took the opportunity to finish some pending book projects and published three books later that year, one of which, 'Health from the hive', has been translated into English,


Year 2005 I was recruited to the hugely popular lifestyle magazine Strömsö, nowadays brodcast on the largest tv channel in Finland, YLE1. The programme is also occationally broadcast on Swedish SVT and Norwegian NR. I am one of the experts on the programme, producing pieces on herbs, health, natural skin care, training and exercise, vegetarian food and outdoor life. 


Herb school (Örtskolan)  is my very own production, broadcast on the Swedish National Television, SVT. They are short programmes, each episode presenting one medicinal plant. I describe how to find, recognize and use the plants, as well as explain how active substances of the plants work to give it its medicinal properties.
The programme was recorded in 2012-2013 and has been broadcast repeatedly since then.
