Lately I’ve become quite interested in herbal medicine.
Don’t get worried-I’m not likely to eschew hospitals, antibiotics, vaccinations and regular check ups any time soon-but I do like knowing about alternative options and how they might work together with a modern lifestyle.
I can grow or wildcraft a lot of the materials myself-so that can makes herbal treatments a very inexpensive option. And who knows, if I was every in a situation where I couldn’t get traditional medications, it’s nice to know a few alternatives!
In my online browsing for information I came across a nice blog called Common Sense Home. She had a lovely series called “Wildcrafting Weekly” where she covers common weeds that have either medicinal or food value.
