Is your soil full of clay like ours?
Or maybe your in an apartment and there is nowhere to grow a garden.
Perhaps you rent and tearing up the backyard to plant all-of-the-things isn't something your landlord would approve of.
There are plenty of reasons that a full-on garden isn't an option for many people. Whether you live in the city and can only dream of living in the country or you live in the country. Your soil is less than desirable there are still lots of options for growing something wherever you are.
There is that one place in the yard. You know the one. Not much will grow there. But you're looking to use all of your spaces and use them well.
Whether you are growing food or growing your own medicine, it is essential to use up every little space and get the most out of it.
That shaded place in your yard, though, what do you do with it? What in the world can you grow in the shade that will use that space well? Believe it or not, there are a whole host of shade-loving herbs that can fill those spaces!
After a record cold and flu season, followed by the Coronavirus, seasonal allergies are not far behind, or perhaps they have already hit where you are.
Rather than be the bearer of bad news (that allergy season is coming), I hope that this herbal tea can have you well prepared to battle allergy season before it hits.
Did you know that nettles can help reduce the inflammatory response caused by allergies? NCBI 2009 Nettles aren't the only herb that can come to your aide this allergy season!
Diet, rest, hydration are just the start of preventing colds, coughs, and the flu. But what happens when you catch that virus going around? Natural herbal medicines are a great way to try and help those symptoms out at home when they are in their earliest stages.
In last week's post (Tools for Preventing Coughs, Colds, and Flu Part I), we chatted about the Coronavirus along with ways to prevent getting viruses, including the common cold and flu. This week it is time to dive deep into the types of herbs that one might find helpful in preventing coughs, colds, and flu along with those that are helpful after catching them.
Ok! That concludes this blog post!
Just kidding! Two of my favorite flavors are chocolate and mint but today we are going to just chat about Peppermint.
Not only is it tasty with chocolate, but it also shines when it comes to digestive health, cooking, headaches and muscle cramps.
