Plants aren’t just pretty, or a weed in the yard! They are used both nutritionally and medicinally. Another big passion of mine. I have participated in 2 apprenticeships teaching me how to identify, harvest, and process plants. I grow many on my property, without pesticides. I’ve got weeds (those are medicinal and nutritional too)) everywhere! My husband and I make date days as a wander in the woods to gather plants I don’t grow on my property. I use the plants that I grow and that I harvest in the forest for making medicinal salves, tinctures, lip balms, etc. and add to my smoothies and meals. I love being able to make natural products that help with issues such as cold/flu support, skin salves for burns, eczema, psoriasis and bug bites, along with culinary items such as herbal salts, vinegars, butters and honey’s.
