The Basics of Making Herbal Formulas

The Basics of Making Herbal Formulas
Host: Cat Ellis “The Herbal Prepper Live

Basics DIYFireCiderWMHerbal remedies are a severely underutilized resource by preppers. Plant-based remedies provide an easy, affordable, and renewable alternative for post-collapse medicines. Herbs, mushrooms, trees, and other natural items, like honey, provide a wealth of traditional remedies that you can make and grow at home with minimal and easy-to-obtain equipment.

Basics 20140227_162514Herbs also have a sort of stealth function built into them that many preppers can appreciate. You can stock up on lots of your own, custom-tailored herbal preparations and formulas without drawing the same kind of attention and compromising questions you might garner if you tried to stock up on pharmaceuticals. And, due to the fact that the average person is largely clueless when it comes to plant identification outside of a tomato and a cucumber, your Survival Herb Garden will not draw the kind of attention as, for example, your vegetable garden. Most will think your herbs are either a pile of weeds or that your medicinal flowers are purely ornamental. Continue reading The Basics of Making Herbal Formulas

Natural to man-made disasters

This Friday on “In Time of disaster” we will continue the discussion of last week as we move from natural to man-made disasters such as a refinery fire, floods or in the case of the nuclear power plant in Japan and all other types of disasters that are caused in part or in whole by man or our inventions that affect the lives of hundreds to thousands when everything goes wrong.

In the second half we will discuss what supplies you should have in your home and vehicle if a disaster were to strike. Do you have a Bug-out bag? If so, does it contain everything you will need to survive for 3 days or longer? We will look at what FEMA says we should have, and what do you really need to survive any disaster that might affect you and your family. Listen to this show in player below.
