First Herbal Craft of 2012

Standard

(As always, links are underlined. CLICK!)

Today, seven weeks after I should have made it, I started a lemon balm tincture.
I say seven weeks because it takes six weeks to make and a week ago I could have really used it’s citrusy antiviral power for this bug.

But, its now made, from organic Melissa officinalis that was grown from seed by a friend of mine at Williamson Farms. 100 proof vodka finishes it up, and just in time for March’s cold and flu season I should have a lovely tincture.

Also made a nice big batch of Mama Thrifty’s non toxic cream of mushroom soup, and a batch of cream of chicken.

Good day. Tomorrow will be too- free homeschool books and more cooking.

See you then!
