The versatility of herbs for health

Herbs have been used for thousands and thousands of years by the people of the earth, and are foods that can be applied in tinctures, infusions, topical use, cooking, cleaning, aromatherapy, detox, and much, much more. Here are some great resources for getting started in your herbal journey – all these are available in the bundle sale:

Practical Herbs / Henriette Kress.

We once had a bare garden and a mighty craving for garden greens to add to our soup. “I spy some very green lemon balm” and this herb that grows like a weed substituted in a bean soup for kale. Herbs are food but they tend to have such high levels of antioxidants and other nutrients that research continues to find that herbs do help to relieve specific conditions. If you have ever wondered what herbal remedy to use for a flu or cold, to relieve arthritis pain, or to clear your airways, this collection of products is a one-stop shop. You will even learn how to harvest remedies from trees, taking foraging to a whole new level.

Practical Herbs by herbalist Henriette Kress will help you grow herbs in your own garden, harvest them from the wild, and store them after harvest. You will learn the process for brewing herbal teas, vinegars, syrups, and tinctures and using them to relieve common ailments. Learn how to create a uniformly consistent herbal tincture in your own kitchen and how to use “flopped” herbal vinegars to clean a tough spot in your kitchen or bath. (150 pages; $9.50)
