Some items for a herbal first aid kit:
Antibacterial, anti-fungal. Helps speed up recovery and is a great source of vitamin E & A. Make an infusion by adding ¼ teaspoon of salt to one cup of purified water. Add 4-5 ounces of calendula tincture. Apply with a clean cotton ball two-four times a day. (Make the tincture ahead of time, so its ready when you need the infusion. Most infusions are best used within a week.)
Anti-inflammatory, antibacterial. It helps builds new tissue and stops bleeding. Use it to treat bruises, sprains and strains, cuts, bites, burns and stings. Use it as a salve, poultice or tea.
Antioxidant and astringent. Helps clear out bacteria and can even help soothe bug bites. I use the store made, but the herb is readily available. I often add a tincture to witch hazel when I use it as toner, for specialized use. (an infusion)

3 easy ways to prepare herbs:
This is the simplest way to make tinctures for me. I buy the cheapest 100 proof vodka at the ABC store. Boil water to sterilize a glass container. I also use an ounce or so of vodka to rinse the inside. Place your herb/herbs in container. Don't fill to top, as the herbs will expand. Don't pack them down either. Cover the herbs in vodka. You will need to check next couple of days. Keep herbs covered in liquid. Add more vodka as needed. Invert container to make it air tight. Don't shake, but do turn it over every so often the next 6 weeks. Yes, 6 weeks, so plan ahead to be prepared.
I keep in cool, dark place. After 6 weeks, drain and discard herb. The herb is spent, no need to keep. I keep my tinctures in dark brown dropper bottles. Tinctures can easily last for a year, or more. For me, with a tincture, you can make anything. Infusions, salves, etc.
We have all made tea. That's an infusion. You…
Every Empath Will Try To Hide These 11 Things From You
Empaths are very special people and they are unique from everyone else in a variety of different ways. Although they don’t talk about it much, they are highly sensitive people. If you are close to an empath you need to know these things.
Empaths are unique in a lot of different ways. They are extremely sensitive to human energy and emotions. They tend to absorb other people’s emotions and energy, and that can be a very negative thing – if they’re around negative people.…Continue
The original Knock Out® Rose was introduced in 2000 by The Conard-Pyle Co./Star® Roses. Created by Wisconsin rose breeder William Radler to reduce the rose gardener’s to do list with a plant that was cold hardy, disease resistant and incredibly floriferous. Knock Out® is cold tolerant to zone 5, heat tolerant throughout the U.S., reliably resistant to disease and produces a bevy of blooms every 5 to 6 weeks from spring until the first hard frost. I’d call that success! No wonder it won the AARS Award that year.
Sumerian song to Inanna
Heaven is mine, the earth is mine
I am warrior am I
Is there a god who can vie with me?
The gods are sparrows-I am a falcon
The gods trundle along
I am a splendid wild cow.

I looked at a few video's and thought this was the easiest. I like to "blow" out the actual egg so I can keep my project. Using old silk ties or scarves works. 18 cm converts to about 8 inches. Continue
