Today we are going to cover Making and Using Herbal Medicines. Note the making and using are not 100% connected. What I mean is not only will I cover how to make your own and use those but also some off the shelf stuff you can buy and use as well.
Sometimes you can’t get a certain herb, sometimes a more professional preparation of extraction is better, sometimes well you just need it and don’t have the time to make it.
Remember that today show was chosen in the new voting poll for the shows on Tuesday, they are always stand alone just Jack shows. Next Tuesday we are doing Outdoor Cooking and that will end things for April. But remember the poll for Mays shows has 10 choices and there will be 5 winners. If you want a voice in those shows, remember to vote here for your top 5 choices.
In addition to this show you may want to go back and listen to my previous series on herbal actions. Understanding the language of herbs is highly beneficial, that also shows you their capabilities and makes it easier for you to do your own research.
