From our Mailbox

I am a huge fan of your store and products. I'm fairly new to herbs, but
learning fast and enjoying the newfound "power" of knowledge and confidence
to help my family stay healthy. Thanks for all you do, especially on your
website, to guide and provide so much information for people like me. I was
intrigued by your note on brushing with a touch of cayenne. I have been
brushing with baking soda and a dab of peppermint or spearmint oil, in an
effort to "natural-ize" some of my health/body products. It leaves the mouth
feeling ultra-refreshed and invigorated, much as you described the ceyenne.
You might like to try it! May God continue to bless your ministry.

Did You Know?

Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.

Accessories

One of our first experiences with the medicinal properties of herbs was through capsules. Encapsulated herbs are a very convenient way to ingest their goodness anywhere at anytime. Using the accessories listed below, we have filled thousands of capsules for our own use. They are perfect for some emergencies, and occasions when a tea or tincture is not available.

Books

Some folks think we know a thing or two about home remedies and herbs. The fact is, almost all that we know, we learned from our books. Without them, we would be lost. It's awesome to read up on a new remedy, and go in the kitchen and try it. More than that, we love to modify the recipe to make it more effective or affordable. The details the books provide on each herb will inspire you to many exciting learning discoveries.

So, don't shoot in the dark. Take advantage of the books that we offer. The more you read, the more confidently you'll use the herbs. Out of the dozens of herb books in our little office, only a few have we found helpful. Here they are. We've also included some books on eating healthy and such.
