I'm all interest this year to sart making a couple of simple salves and tinctures and maybe oil infusions. Have only made some elderberry remedies so far! The 'I'll do it' moment came after spending $$ on a burts bees hand salve (desperately needed) and flipping it over to read what was in it - shoot, all those things are mere steps from our front door, including the beeswax from the hives! And so began several months of getting herbal books from the library, finding a few herbal books to buy, reading, and finding herbal oline groups to learn from. Buying seeds and starting them earlier this year - calendula, narrow leaf echinacea, lovage, mint, st johns, camomile all busy growing under lights. The culmination? I'm hosting an herbal group here this saturday. Maybe 5-10 women I've never met yet in person - coming to swap plants and gather wild things from our farm. Please! take my burdock and stinging nettles home with you, please! lol. I know I'm getting some valerian and some arnica. Sweet! Anyway, still not sure what I want to do/make and feeling a need to come up with at least a few 'must dos'. Wondering what do you make? Have any plans for the coming season? Things you can't life without? Products you 'll never spend the time making again? I think I'll make a violet & plaintain salve first. Need to start those infused oils before it rains this weekend!
