Homemade Herbal Medicine: Your Essential Guide to Herbs and DIY Remedies for Health and Healing

51HvApqVyBL._SX358_BO1,204,203,200_Working and collaborating with author Carmen Reeves over the traditional herbalist knowledge and research in her new book has been a rush and a joy.  I’m proud and happy to share her latest publication, Homemade Herbal Medicine, ranking as a #1 bestseller in the Herbs and Herbal Remedies category on Amazon as we speak!

Click here to check it out.  But first, I want to give my followers an opportunity to get this essential little guide for free.  

For only a couple more days yet, until December 5th, you can still get the Kindle version of this priming guide on at-home herbalism without paying a single cent.

You can also email Carmen Reeves directly, and in exchange for leaving her a good review, she will pass on to you a full PDF version of the E-book absolutely free!  Send an email to hello@carmabooks.com if interested.

This guide is what I could only call one of the most well-rounded, simple, and straightforward introductions to herbalism that I have seen in a long time.  For beginners new to herbalism, I really feel that the knowledge and research put into this book gives you the adequate perspective and skills in herbalism you need to do it safely and successfully.

For expert herbalists even, Homemade Herbal Medicine helps you narrow down and “hone” your herbal repertoire with the very best herbs out there.  Each herb selected in this book has been carefully researched and hand-picked for both traditional, folkloric reputation and scientific study alike!

I’m also in love with the designs and pictures of each individual herb.  The graphic designs add a very cozy, at-home feel which is perfect for learning the ropes to homemade, DIY herbalism.  The perfect package!

Thank you for following, and don’t hesitate to get in touch with Carmen.  More articles, updates, free e-books, and upcoming publications to arrive soon!

Foraging Wild And Healing Foods: 30 Plants and Fungi For Wildcrafting and Wellness!

517Thag-5dL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_ It’s been a while since I’ve posted – and mostly because I’ve been deep, deep, deep in the world of freelance writing about all sorts of health, wellness, and healing topics related to food, herbalism, and so much more!

Which is why I’m excited to share with you one of my recent efforts, Foraging Wild and Healing Foods!  It was a delight and wonder to work with author Rodger Kinnard in collaborating and putting together some of the information that went into this compact and amazing guide, who then went on to furnish, write, and publish the final format.  You can find it published for paperback and E-book on Amazon – click here if you’re interested in having one all your own.

I didn’t design the cover, but can I just interject for a moment first that it is absolutely gorgeous!??

This book is amazing, as it brings us all one step closer to remembering that our food is our medicine and we can access it all ourselves at any time, all while feeling empowered.  Each plant entry not only describes how to identify it, where to find it and poisonous look-alikes- but also its traditional and researched healing effects, along with nutritional benefits.

Oh yes- and also, some nice tips on how to prepare the wild-foraged food (frying, marinading, boiling, blanching, etc.) so you can fully immerse your wildcrafting experience right there in your kitchen!

Herbalism, wildcrafting, and even the culinary arts are not so far apart from accessing personal healing, after all.  Food, along with herbs, are the keys to wellness and preventing illness…and this book helps us remember that.  A big thanks to Rodger Kinnard for my involvement- an amazing author who will have forthcoming, magnificent books in the future, I’m sure!

No, hopefully not all my blog posts from now on will be nothing but advertisements about my professional accomplishments and a severe lack of fun stuff.  But at the very least, I’m hoping that pushing this post out here for both Mr. Kinnard and myself will help me get back into the habit of churning out more.  In fact, I have one article soon to come, all about herbal Simple Syrups (I like to call them “Simpler’s Syrups”!) including recipes and stunning photos.

Stay tuned for more articles about herbal preparations, health benefits, discussions, recipes, and updates on what’s going on in my herbal world in Iowa.
