Ales (beer) have been around for literally thousands of years, and most of these ancient recipes called for using herbs. In this manner, they became “healing” in nature. Since they are also a fermented drink, they are good for you in terms of gut health too. My Chamomile Ale was inspired by a recipe from the book by Harold Buhner’s book, Sacred Herbal Healing Beers. This recipe is several hundred years old and involves using Chamomile. Chamomile is a relaxant, is great for helping with anxiety and soothing nerves. It also helps solve sleep issues and is calming in the evening. It’s a delicious little herb, too, with a honey-like sweetness. Here’s how to make Chamomile Ale!

It's been my dream to have a homestead for a LONG time. Finally, we bought a property about an hour out of Las Vegas, NV in the high mountain desert. It's small...but it's working. What I have realized is that you can homestead anywhere....even in an urban environment. When I look back now on my life in Las Vegas, I recognize I've been homesteading in various ways for years! We've just expanded, that's all! Our property is 3/4 acre of desert land, and we are making this work! It's so exciting! I'm dedicated to learning with and sharing with other like-minded people...all about being self-sufficient!
