Handmade Herbal Gifts: Part Two
This week, we are continuing with part two of the 3-part handmade Herbal Gifts series that begun last week. (See last week’s description below.) Tonight I’m sharing ideas for salves, lotions, aftershave, beard oil, bath salts, and magnesium oil.
From last week…
Calling all DIYers! Want some ideas for frugal, quick-to-make holiday gifts? You still have time to to make loads of handmade, natural, herbal gifts. Be sure to listen to Herbal Prepper Live this Sunday to learn how.
The herbal crafts I’m covering require no prior experience working with herbs. They are super simple to assemble, and they can be customized to each gift recipient. I will be covering an assortment of teas, salves, herbal vinegars, and other concoctions. These can be either medicinal or more spa/pampering in nature. Sometimes, they are both.
There are so many easy, quick options with herbal gifts. Have a relative with painful joints? Make up a gift basket of soothing salves and relief-providing turmeric capsules. Have a friend with terribly dry skin? Fill a gift bag with handmade body butters.
Have a prepper spouse or a prepper friend worried about all the things we preppers worry about? Make aromatherapy magnesium spray, bath salts, and lotion. Or, take another approach. Assemble some quick and easy herbal first aid kits for their bug out bags. Have a friend with kids? Prepare an herbal cold and flu kit.
There are countless reasons to skip the in-store shopping frenzy. Every year is seems to get worse with stores opening earlier, more trampling of other shoppers, all-out-brawls. This year’s Black Friday saw shootings and more mobs than ever. One video I watched had a supposed adult grab a toy right out of a child’s hands.
What reasonable person finds this acceptable? The irony that this happens the day after gathering to reflect upon how grateful we are for what we already have is thick.
On the other hand, DIY gifts are satisfying to make and even more special to receive. So, listen to this episode, give these ideas a whirl, and opt out of the holiday craziness this year.

About: The Herbal Prepper Live
Tune in live every Sunday evening for Herbal Prepper Live, hosted by herbalist and preparedness author Cat Ellis. Cat will show you how a holistic approach to health using natural medicine will make you more prepared for any emergency.
Join us live to discuss both acute and chronic health conditions that will need care, even if the medical system were to collapse. Would you know how to help a loved one if there were no hospital or pharmacy available? From preventative measures to infections to first aid and emergency care, you need to know how to care for your health care needs.
Herbal Prepper Live is one herbalist’s opinion on alternatives to modern medicine during a total collapse of our way of life. In this hypothetical scenario, there are no doctors, EMTs, hospitals, or pharmacies. Herbal medicine can provide life-saving options in this kind of environment.
This show is also for the individual who prefers to step outside the system. Preppers, survivalists, and homesteaders are highly independent and self-sufficient people. Many of us just prefer to choose more sustainable, holistic health care, like that found in nutritional therapy with real and traditional foods, herbal remedies, mycology, midwifery, and therapeutic movement.
Whether you prefer to use natural medicine as your “plan B” or as your primary path to health is solely your choice, and no one else’s. That’s what health freedom is all about. Herbal Prepper Live can help you plot out your “plan B” and strengthen your independence from a vulnerable medical system.
However, the time to learn such skills is right now while times are still good. Be sure to listen every Sunday evening at 7pm E / 6pm C / 5pm M / 4pm P. Remember to join us live in the chat room!
