This water filter has for many years provided us, folks from our community and many of our customers with fresh clean water.
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.

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.
These are some of our favorite home remedies. Each mixture includes all the herbs in the recipe. Here you have the recipes, and the directions we follow when preparing them. We hope you use our directions only as an example, and in time, prepare and improve them whatever way works best for you.
These herbs have been a part of our lives for many years. We have reaped the benefits of their healing time and time again. They have served us in the occasional emergency, but mostly as daily nutritional supplements. Their nutritional properties have kept sickness at bay while others around us have been down and out. These loose leaf herbs can be easily made into teas, tinctures, ointments, poultices or whatever your needs may call for.

Thank you! Thank you! I placed my order on Wednesday and it was here Saturday. I had been out of my favorite tea, Rise and Shine, for a little while and really missed it. I just love this tea. I have yet to kick the coffee habit, but after a cup or two of coffee in the morning I make a pot of Rise and Shine right in my coffee pot. I drink it through out the day and make another smaller pot in the evening, using the same tea leaves for my husband and I to enjoy after dinner. I even make an altered version of the tea for my children. I leave out the Ginkgo and Bilberry and add Cinnamon and sweeten with raw honey. They call it cinnamon tea. I call it Rise and Shine for kids. Even my two year old asks for tea in her sippy cup. And whenever they've been exposed to an illness, I just add a spoonful of Echinacea to the pot. In warmer weather I make the pot the same but allow it to cool to make iced tea. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tea.

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.
