Savvy Teas and Herbs has a wonderful e-book that is free to those who sign up for their newsletter. It contains instructions for making tinctures, teas, infusions, syrups, and more. It is an excellent resource for anyone wishing to learn more about using herbs medicinally.
In case you missed it (because I double-posted on Friday), here is a list of the herbal how-to books I use most often.
Michele of Frugal Granola has a wonderful e-book: Herbal Nurturing, which includes over 30 recipes for home remedies. In addition to the recipes and instructions, Michele provides tips and ideas for involving children. I LOVE that. Herbal Nurturing is $8.95.

It brings me peace to have these recipes on hand because I can treat many of my families ailments with ease. It also brings me joy because it is just plain fun to whip up lotion bars and lip balm. It really is.
Well, I think that’s enough to keep you busy for a while.
