Poultices and Salves
Herbal poultices and salves are essential elements in your herbal first aid kit. In this episode, I will walk you through how to make both poultices and salves.
Poultices and salves are both topical applications and ideal for all sorts of injuries. Sprains, strains, headaches, abrasions, bruises, and bites can all be helped by a well-made poultice or salve.
This will wrap up our series of Seven Essential Herbal Skills. In case
you missed the other two episodes in this series, please check out Part One and Part Two. These will give you a good start in making a wide range of herbal remedies.
Making both poultices and salves are simple skills. Even if you have never made an herbal remedy before, you can learn to make and apply poultices and salves for your first aid kit.
Plus, we will discuss a number of important herbs that you will want to either locate growing in your area, or grow in your medicinal herb garden. Herbs such as comfrey, meadow arnica, plantain, St. John’s wort, cayenne, yarrow, oak bark, echinacea, meadowsweet, barberry, Solomon’s seal, and lobelia can see you through most minor and some not-so-minor injuries.
Herbal medicine is sustainable medicine. Learning to grow and craft your own herbal and natural remedies is simple, enjoyable, and helps you be better prepared for emergencies big and small. Jump in with this episode and try your hand at making a poultice or a salve, and see how easy it is to put up your own herbal “farmacy”, independent of what may or may not happen to our vulnerable, conventional medical system.

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!
