Make your own medicine

This winter we’ve been experimenting with creating our own herbal tinctures. We’ve used tinctures for years for both preventative purposes and to get better faster if we do get sick.

When doing research on the company behind an enjoyable family game called Wildcraft! that we recently purchased, we saw the same company (a single family, really) produced an herbal remedy creation kit. Our eight year old was immediately drawn to it, as he had been reading about harvesting herbs from the forest at school and successfully identifying them in our backyard and nearby forest. We’re glad we ordered it.

The kit has several projects included, all of them a great way to invest a few cold winter evenings with your family to produce some very useful products to keep you healthy and strong.
