Herbs are Effective

We all know people who belittle medicinal herb usage. They roll their eyes when talk of natural medicines of any sort come up and claim it’s all hogwash and snake oil. I generally try not engage in dialogue with these types because I feel if they want to miss out on the health and beauty herbs offer, then that is their call. But if you are more apt to engage in these conversations (good for you!), here are some points that might help: Herbalism Today and Blue Zones

How to Make Rose Oil (Quick Method)

C3FC84A8-A7FC-4C7B-95EA-64C586477469[1]Here’s the quick method to making an herbal oil. I used rose buds but you can use any dried herb in the same way. If you want to try the Folk Method instead, it’ll take longer but no artificial heat is needed so it’s a tad easier, especially if you are crafting with kids. Either way, herbal oils are fun to make and so useful~ you can use them just as you would any oil on your body, face, hair, or in a bath. You can use them to make salves, body butter, serums, body scrubs, perfumes, and more. Rose oil would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift and you have time to do the Folk Method if you prefer as long as you start soon. Happy Creating!
