I have recently been taking a number of courses through Homesteading Family and am learning about the uses and benefits of many great herbs. The Herbal Medicine Cabinet: Colds and Flus class has been very informative and well done and would highly recommend it. I purchased my herbal supplies from Farmhouse Teas to complete the course and stock my apothecary. The products and service were exceptional.

In this section I will share what I am using and the information I have gathered in hopes that it will be of some benefit to you. I hope that it will also encourage you to explore the resources that you have around you to help in your healthy lifestyle journey.
Note that I am not a medical professional or a licensed herbologist. I am simply sharing the information and experience I have gathered as a developing herbalist who is traveling the vast world of herbal medicine.
