Discovering or Rediscovering Herbs!

Discovering or Rediscovering Herbs!
Host: Lynna… “A Preppers Path” Audio player provided!

Discovering or Rediscovering HerbsOur relationship with the herb reaches back thousands of years and at one time herbs were an essential part of life. We used them to preserve food as well as make foods more nourishing. We used them for medicinal purposes and for religious ceremonies. There was hardly anything in our daily lives that herbs didn’t have a role in. As time passed however we began to forget the many versatile uses of herbs and then we thought we could improve upon Mother Nature with manufactured copies, chemicals and synthetic knock offs. And many totally forgot that the herb existed, not realizing that what they were now using were copies of the originals and not natural at all. Read more “Discovering or Rediscovering Herbs!”

The Healing Power of Honey!

The Healing Power of Honey
Host: Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

Healing DIYFireCiderWMHoney is truly ancient medicine. The first written reference to the medicinal use of honey is on a Sumerian tablet over 4000 years ago. Honey has been used medicinally ever since. Honey is useful for many conditions, including wounds, burns , and some of the toughest bacteria we may ever encounter. Plus, it does all of this for less than ten federal reserve notes!
