Great book!
by Heather Price on Jun 7, 2012

Very AWESOME book. I got a copy of it MANY yrs ago and it is actually going in my will to my daughter when I go home. The reason being is I was one of many that actually got to meet Carla at a talk in Indiana a couple yrs before she pasted and got my copy autographed. I lived out of this book so much that I recently had to tape the cover and a few pages back on it...haha
When I am asked about a book for living self sufficient this is the main book I always recommend.

Hello!!!!

First of all I just wanted to thank you for sending my order so fast!!! I did purchase the Herbs Made Simple DVD from the No Greater Joy website which is how I found out about this website. I can’t wait for my Dr. Cinnamon Tea & Rise & Shine Tea that I ordered!!

I’ve started watching the video and I was SO surprised about the garlic poultice!!! I actually said out loud in my house, “You mean to tell me that I have a natural decongestant in my house that has more uses than spaghetti sauce & cooking?! And all I need is garlic cloves, cheese cloth, & hot water?!” Yep, made me want to stomp my foot when I realized how much money I have wasted purchasing cold medications.

I really appreciate this because my son is 3 and a lot of the over the counter medications are not made for someone his age & weight. I would rather give him something that will not harm him, but will help him at the same time.

THANK YOU Shoshanna!!!! You, your mother and your family have truly been blessed with some precious gifts and I thank you for sharing them with us!!
