In this section you will find helpful preparations of herbal concoctions to help
you & your family stay healthy throughout the year without the use of over the counter medications.
I will also include what herbs I use in daily used, show you ways I found to kick-start my own medicinal garden, & show you ways to help become more self-sufficient in your daily lives.
Rosemary Gladstar has been a wonderful inspiration of mine, & throughout this blog I will quote her quite frequently! Whenever you see "RG", you'll know where the magic came from!

Are you thinking of trying your hand at growing a few of your own organic herbs & don't know where to go? I found: Strictly Medicinal Herb Seeds! certified organic seeds, open pollinated, untreated, GMO-free, and public domain. They even come guaranteed fertile & are printed on recycled paper with soy-based ink!
There's no better way to learn about herbal medicine than to create your own small apothecary, be it a pantry shelf, a closet, an extra room, or a corner of the basement, fill it with homemade herbal remedies, ideally prepared from the plants you've grown yourself so you can observe them through the seasons. If you think it sounds daunting, remember it's called practice because that's exactly what you'll be doing: practicing how to use herbs to promote vibrant health and radiant well-being. RG
