I am a novice herb (and vegetable) gardener, to date I have only grown the
few herbs I know how to cook with. My first vegetable garden was not very
successful, my inexperience caused a few problems that I plan to remedy in
this year's garden.
Recently my husband and I (along with several friends and family
members) have begun thinking to the future. We're not conspiracy theorists
by any stretch, nor doomsday type people, but we have begun preparing for
some worst case scenario situations. Since each of us already keeps a fair
size garden (I'm the newest to start this hobby), I started thinking it
would be beneficial to know more about herbs and their respective medicinal
uses, the best ways to dry and preserve, etc.
I found your site and have read several of your articles, but I'd like to
ask if you have (or can direct me to) specific instructions on several
different herbs, and not just their medicinal qualities (I've found a good
amt of info online as to what herbs are good for different things) but HOW
to make tinctures, poultices, and things of that nature. I found your site
by looking up how to make an infusion, but I'd really like more in depth
I know that herbs are what the early Indians used for medicine, as well as
doctors (or wise-women) in early times all over the world and the subject is
something I'd like to learn more about.
Thank you so much...
