NEWSLETTER #39 THE GROWING IMPORTANCE OF SHARING KNOWLEDGE PDF
Our Price: $2.00

3 page, two-sided herbal newsletter.

With new FDA regulations governing herbs and raw plant materials, there is a growing need for sharing knowledge. This Newsletter covers the issues and the importance of herbalists teaching others the knowledge we have obtained throughout our careers.

Knowledge is something that is meant to be passed on, not held. The knowledge of healing plants and how to use them is not only a gift, but one that should be taught to others. Herbs and botanical preparations may someday disappear from retail shelves and become prescription items too expensive for many to purchase.

With knowledge, consumers can provide for themselves by learning what medicinal plants grow in their own backyards and the forests or deserts nearby. As herbalists, it has (and always was) our obligation to provide the education needed, so that these herbs may be properly identified and prepared by others.

Feature ~ People Friendly Plants: How to identify and prepare Bindweed , Chickweed, Sheep Sorrel, Dandelion, Puncture Vine, Knotweed, Melilot, Ox-eye Daisy and Teasel.

Recipes Include: Ox-Eye Daisy-Catnip Mosquito Repellent, Teasel Ointment, Chicory Coffee, Chickweed Salve, and Melilot Eye Ointment.
