Herbal Intrusion

Our herbs arrived this week. And I'm so excited about them. I ordered some new things that I've read a bit about and can't wait to try them out.

I'm planning on delving into the world of tincture-making. I know this is old hat for some of you...and I'll take any advice you have. I bought the herbs for a "cold/flu" tincture and for a cough syrup. We had a couple of weeks in February where coughs kept everyone up at night and I had wished I had this then.

The rest of the herbs are for our daily kefir smoothies. I'm going to be adding this great product called chia seed. You can read all about it here. Also, this herbal "daily boost" is a great way to get all of our vitamins and minerals without popping any pills.

When I get around to making the tincture, I'll post pictures.
