So with cold season fast approaching, I'm getting prepared to make some herbal remedies. My son, years ago, teased me and called my herbs Witches Brew. My Man liked the term and it's tossed around in the house regularly. I'm not sure if I should laugh, pout or make them the most bitter concoction I can and make them drink it!
My friend said that Nettle Leaf Glycerite works well for seasonal allergies. My Man has such a rough time with allergies that I was interested in trying that. I have run out of the amazing, homemade vanilla extract and made up another quart of that. I decided to make a healing, first-aid salve and sell it in small jars to help with our adoption fundraising. I call it Boo Boo Better. It's great for cuts, bruises, bites, stings - all things first-aid. Each jar is $5 and I have only sold half of my stock, so let me know if you want some. It's great to keep in your purse, your kitchen, your bathroom and pass out to friends and family. And last I am making an immune boosting tincture. At the first onset of symptoms, I give it to all the kids. It helps knock out the symptoms and prevent it from spreading to everyone.
