My theory on why it's hard for most people to look into home remedies is because they'll look up the info online of how to fix it, realize they don't have the "stuff" to do it and get discouraged.

What's easiest is to first look at what's growing around your home, or natural items you already have and look up their medicinal correspondences. You could probably use just about every plant and flower you have in your yard for something

Hmm...good view point

Totally off topic but I just saw your little girls name is Nola, I have a little cousin (also born in 2009) named Nolah after my great-great grandma Aznolah (they thought the name was ugly so dropped the Az lol). I haven't seen another little girl with that name, so I had to mention it.

DH and I couldn't agree on anything and I saw that name and fell in love. There were 2 other women on the NCB when I was co-hosting and one of them had a daughter named Nola and the other had the name picked for her daughter I love it!

And, I think a lot of people are discouraged by prices online. When you buy essential oils/extracts/butters/oils in tiny quantities, the price skyrockets. You have to buy in bulk to make it worthwhile . . . but people don't want to buy a big quantity of something "just to try it".

Yes, you definitely can eat & use the "weeds" in your yard but unless you are knowledgeable as to what plant is what, you have to invest in a good book with pictures that explains what the plants do and how to prepare them. And there's so many books to choose from! I think I have somewhere in the neighborhood of 19 books

it's really best though to have quite a range of books - some have great descriptions but nothing else, some have great pics but don't tell you what to do with the plant, and some only have hand drawings.

And different books have different plants . . . now if I could find ONE book that had all the plants in this region, with actual photos and all the info (history, uses, and recipes) I wanted, I'd buy THAT book!!

That's what I'm working on right now for offgridding in Co. If you lived in CO, I'd give you a copy lol
