Medicine Chest

here’s a peek into my current medicine chest.  i dry plants that grow around us or buy what doesn’t from mountain rose herbs.  the tinctures i either make or buy through jean’s greens, with the exception of the nettle-eyebright tincture: i get that from mountain rose herbs.  jean’s greens has a breath of joy tincture that’s somewhat equivalent and i get that from time to time.  my kitchen cupboard hosts a lot of goods that also go into many healing concoctions, especially turmeric root powder, cayenne powder, cinnamon, bragg’s raw apple cider vinegar, and local wildflower honey.  i also keep fresh grated horseradish in the fridge:  it’s great for clearing up a stuffy nose.  and garlic is a permanent feature in the kitchen that goes a long way.
