Herbs


I have been interested in herbs for many years. I've read alot about them and use some regularly. I buy mine at the GNC store. But a couple of weeks ago I decided that I would like to learn more and do an apprenticeship with a herbalist.
I've been making some herbal vinegars this week. I'm using local wild herbs to make these vinegars. I've made plantain , dandelion and red clover. All of these herbs can be used as a calcium supplement , 2 to 4 tbsps daily can reverse and counter osteoporosis. My youngest daughter will be taking the dandelion vinegar , it is good for liver problems. When she was pregnant with Jake , she had a condition called ICP. The liver doesn't function properly and bile starts building up and causes intense itching. We're hoping and praying this will not happen this time , but there is a 50% chance it will. I hope the dandelion will keep the liver cleansed and working properly.

Well , it's about time for Curious Jake to wakeup from his nap. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
