Hello Herb Lovers,
So you are interested in the wonderful health benefits of herbs and want to include them in your health regime. But it is all a bit iffy, scary and maybe it’s only for the more “green extreme” members of society and not for everyday, normal you. I am here to tell you that there is nothing scary about making your own herbal remedies. Actually, herbal remedies have become very mainstream. You dont believe me? Well I can prove it to you!
Here is a recent episode of Better Homes and Gardens – how much more mainstream can you get? – showing you how to make three different herbal remedies at home. All three are great, but I would add to the first one that if you leave your infused oil on the stove for an hour, turn the heat off every now and them because you do not want to FRY the calendula flowers.
I already use the calendula ointment (although I add a few other herbs to mine) and the steambath but I will definitely try the lozenges once the winter colds threaten. Will you give making your own herbal remedies a go? It’s so easy it’s even on mainstream TV 🙂
If you are looking for more ideas there are some great, easy to follow step-by-step instructions right here
