Herbs

Growing and using herbs for both culinary and medicinal use is a big part of our homestead and boosting our immune systems. Knowing which medicinal herbs to grow, as well as how to dry herbs and what to do with the herbs you grow isn’t always easy. It’s our desire to help you on your journey to have healthy and natural alternatives to common OTC methods. Some of our favorites are homemade elderberry syrup, this easy old-fashioned cough remedy, or even a “no more pain” salve for bumps, aches, and tension headaches made from a homemade arnica oil
