If you are at all interested in being any kind of herbalist, you will want to have on hand pertinent herbal information for those times when it becomes necessary to use them. Which herbal tea will you concoct when your husband has a cold? Which syrup will you use when your child has a fever? How will you deal with your beginning urinary tract infection? (Here’s what I use, by the way.) Chances are, all of these questions and more will come up in the course of everyday life, and having a materia medica will make tackling these issues straight on an easier task.
- Kristi Stone
Kristi, a homeschooling mom, lives in Riverside County, Southern California with her husband and two of her three children. Though she has been gardening for years, she and her family have not always sought to live closer to the land. As the homesteading movement began to pick up speed, she and her husband became more interested in vegetable gardening, planting fruit and nut trees, and raising laying hens and rabbits--all on .18 of an acre. Eventually Kristi's family would love to move to a larger parcel of land, but for now, Kristi is contented to learn all about homesteading, eeking out every bit of knowledge she can and blogging about much of it at TheMindtoHomestead.com.
