Herbs In My Garden

Herbs In My Garden

This year I have planted quite a few different herbs in my garden areas, and this past week I have harvested and dried three of them.  I have comfrey, yarrow, and linden flowers.  The linden flowers are not really something that I planted myself, because it is a huge tree in the front of my yard, but every year at this time, the flowers come on strong on my tree and they are the most delightful smelling flowers ever.  Here is my process of harvesting and drying these three particular herbs for medicine value.

Imagine yourself sitting under a beautiful tall green tree. The soft summer breeze gently ripples through its shiny heart-shaped leaves.

High overhead, you can hear honey bees lazily buzzing in and out of its perfumed flowers. The shade is cooling and the scent has a calming effect. You feel relaxed and alive and aware of its healing energy.

This is the linden tree. Sometimes if grows 130 feet high, and produces some of the most powerful herbal medicine known to humans. You may even have one of these trees on your street because they are planted widely in cities, and are fairly common in the countryside throughout Ontario where they are usually known as basswood. – See more at: http://vitalitymagazine.com/article/the-linden-tree/#sthash.0DIROirr.dpuf

My awesome Linden Tree

Linden flowers or blossoms – great for the digestive system as a tea, commonly used in teas to soothe anxiety or panic, can be used in the bath water as a relaxing bath, and helps with insomnia when drank as a tea before bed time.  It is known to help lower blood pressure, and to help restore the liver.  Worth doing a little more research on this treasure! I like to use it in my salves that I make simply because it has the calming properties, and it makes them smell so delicious.  I think I am going to try making a perfume with it before too long.  I will post it when I do.

Here is a little blurb that someone wrote about the Linden tree, and I quote it here with the link to the original article.     “Imagine yourself sitting under a tall green tree. The soft summer breeze gently ripples through it’s shiny heart shaped leaves.  High overhead you can hear honeybees lazily buzzing  in and out of it’s perfumed flowers.  The shade is cooling and the scent has a calming effect.  You feel relaxed and alive and aware of it’s healing energy.  This is the Linden tree.”  Love it!

Comfrey

Comfrey

Comfrey is a well know plant for healing. I use it in my own miracle salve recipe that I make, as it has great properties for healing cuts, scrapes, bruises, and even bones. It can be used as a poultice or compress to help heal broken bones and is known for this.  There is some controversy as to whether or not it should be taken internally.  Some herbalists use it, and others will tell you not to.  Do your research before taking it internally.  It can cause damage to the liver, especially if taken often.  It is a miracle herb in itself when it comes to healing and using in my salves.

Yarrow plant

Yarrow is a great little plant, and grows wild in pretty much every prairie or empty lot, and often in lawns around here.  Yarrow is a great plant to know about.  By using its feathery leaves and crunching them up, they can be placed over a wound to stop bleeding.  It can also be drank as a tea to help stop bleeding internally and heal things like bleeding ulcers.  I also will use this in my miracle salve recipe because of its properties to speed up healing.  Yarrow also has some properties that act similar to aspirin and will help relieve pain.  It is a great herb that affects so many different parts of the body, in fact some scientists say that it affects every part of the body in some small way.  It is also known to promote sweating and is often given as a tea to help do this, to in turn break a fever.

Okay now for the drying part…….I dry the yarrow hanging upside down from my clothesline, and the comfrey and linden I just laid them flat on some trays.  Each of these were completely dry in 48 hours, but then we have been having some pretty extreme heat around here.

And the finished products………..

Yay!  I love harvesting and drying the herbs, and then using them in the medicines that I make.  It is kind of a cool feeling to know that I actually understand what to know and use these things for.  I love it!

Today, I am heading over to a small  park that is not too far from my house and I will be harvesting some plantain. Plantain grows wild pretty much everywhere, but this one particular park it is thick and beautiful.  I will take pictures.

Balm of Gilead

Balm of Gilead

Have you ever heard of Balm of Gilead?  In bible times, there was an ointment made from the gummy residue of a tree.  It was one of the major commodities in trade, because of it’s healing power.  It came from Gilead, beyond the river Jordan, and so was called the Balm of Gilead.  It became symbolic for the power to soothe and heal.

I make a salve from the sticky residue of the poplar tree, just before it’s leaves open.  You

The buds I picked.  I usually try to pick them before they start to open, but I waited a couple days too long this time.  They will still work good.

The buds I picked. I usually try to pick them before they start to open, but I waited a couple days too long this time. They will still work good.

will find that the shell around the leaf, is abundant with the sticky dripping sap.  That is when I go “pruning” the trees.  I know people who don’t like to pick the buds off the trees, and instead will pick the shells off the ground after they have been shed.  This will work as well, but doesn’t have as much of the resin left once they are shed.  I believe that all trees can use a little pruning anyway, but I am careful not to take all of the buds off a branch.  I simply take a few here and there.

The Balm of Gilead salve is the most excellent salve for treating eczema and other skin conditions.  It has an amazing healing power.  I harvest the buds, and then soak them in pure olive oil for a few weeks.  This is where I am at with this process.  Then, after I strain them, I will make them into the salve.  As I get to this point in a couple of more weeks, I will post

Fill the jar with the olive oil.  Let soak for a few weeks.  Shake every day to mix well.

Mother Nature really does bless us with some amazing healing gifts.  We just need to take the time to learn what they are, and respect these gifts.

Herbal Nutrition

Herbal Nutrition

In my book Your Home Apothecary, I talk a bit about herbal nutrition.  Here is one part that I go over which covers the different herbs and the nutrition that they contain.  I think we all can get most of the nutrition we need, if we just start eating healthier and adding a few herbals to our diet. Many of the vitamins and minerals we buy at the pharmacy, don’t absorb well into our systems because they are not in a natural form or source.  Using natural forms such as herbs will ensure that your body will absorb the most nutrients that it can. In my book,  I also go over the specific vitamins and minerals, and which body systems and ailments each is used for, which would help you decide which herbs you should start using more in your diet.

Elderberry Syrup for Health

Elderberry Syrup for Health

My little grandson has been struggling the past few weeks and just can’t seem to get over this cold / ear infection / flu that he caught.  It just seems to be cycling through his little body.  I made this Elderberry syrup that we keep adding to his cups of juice, it is great for boosting the immune system and is packed with vitamin C.  Here is the recipe I used.

I started with 1 cup of dried Elderberries and 4 cups of water. 

IMG_0007

I added about 1 tsp of ground cinnamon

IMG_0009

I brought these to a simmer and let simmer for about 20 – 30 minutes.

IMG_0011

When I removed them from the heat, I poured in 1 cup of raw honey and stirred it until the honey was all melted in nicely. I probably should have added the honey to the hot syrup after I had strained it, but it still worked out okay.

IMG_0008

When it had cooled down enough, I strained it all out and composted the berries.  The syrup, I put into a quart jar and placed it in the fridge.  It will last for a couple of weeks.  Everyone who is sick or needs to boost their immune system should take this mixed in with their juice, or even just by spoonful.  It tastes really delicious.  For boosting immune, take 1 or 2 tbsp a couple of times a day.  If you are sick, take 1 or 2 tbsp every couple of hours.

Elderberry  not only helps to boost the immune system, they have really strong anti viral properties, and help to boost the circulation.

Drink Water

I want to share with you some facts about juice, pop, milk and water. I am always shocked at how many people who won’t drink water. They think it tastes horrible. I think they don’t understand the importance of drinking water, as well as the scary problems that come from drinking too much of something else.

Here are some truths. Your body is made up of about 70% water. The brain is made up of about 85% water. Drinking water is actually feeding your brain. Your bones are made of about 35% water. Blood is made up of about 83% water. That is a lot of water in our bodies. What do you think happens when it is starved for water? It begins to ration the water to each organ, and eventually it will shut down certain functions, because the organs simply can’t keep operating without the proper amount of water.

One of the biggest fatigue causers is lack of water. If you are finding that you just don’t have any energy as the day goes on, try drinking water, and see how it affects you.
Okay now for the quick lesson on the problems that pop can cause for you. Soda pop has some pretty serious problems, weight gain, kidney problems, dementia, brain, teeth, heart, and so many more. It is made up of mainly sugar. There is actually an average of 13 – 17 tsp of sugar or other

sweetener in each 20 oz serving of soda. Wow! Can you imagine actually taking 17 tsp of sugar and dumping it on your plate and then just scooping it up and eating it like that. That is in essence what we are doing ever time we drink a soda.

Drinking soda and other juices are not a substitute for water. Even natural fruit juices often have sugar added in some form. They are usually quite high is sugars. Next time you think you are drinking healthy, take a look at the ingredients. If you see any of the following things listed, it is a form of sugar – dextran, dextrose, diatase, fructose, fruit juice concentrate, glucose, glucose solids, golden syrup, syrup, corn syrup, honey, invert sugar, lactose, malt, maltodextrin, maltose, mannitol, molasses, raw sugar, refiner’s syrup, sorbitol, sorghum syrup, sucrose, and so many more deceiving names that we won’t recognize.
So in very short form, these are the health reasons of why you should drink water instead of sweetened drinks. 
 

How about the frugal reasons? If you drink, lets say two servings of sweetened drinks each day, and each one of these drinks costs you at least $1.50, some will be more and some less. Add that up and you get $90 each month spend on unhealthy drinks each month, and over the year, you spend just over $1000 per year for one person to drink sweetened drinks twice a day. 

When you add that up to a family of four, you can guess that you are spending about $4000 per year on sugared drinks that are not healthy for you. Guess what? Water is free! And it is so much healthier for you. How many people do you have in your home and multiply that $1000 per year by that number and see the savings that you will start to have just by switching to drinking water each day.

Cinnamon and Honey

Some interesting facts about cinnamon and honey.  I am not sure where this information originated, but was handed to me from someone, who got it from someone,…..well you all know how that goes.  But I figured that I totally understand the healing properties of honey and cinnamon on their own, but never realized how effective they could be when combined together.  It is worth the try, because they certainly won’t do any harm.  And so my recommendation…………store lots of honey and cinnamon in your food storage!
 
The article………
 
CINNAMON AND HONEY
 
Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot.  It will do what some call turning to sugar.  In reality honey is always honey.  However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will do what I rather call “crystallizing”.  when this happens you loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the honey container in the hot water, turn off the heat and let it liquefy.  It is then as good as it ever was.  Never boil honey or put it in a microwave.  To do so will kill the enzymes in the honey.  Bet the drug companies won’t like this one getting around:  It is found that a mixture of honey and cinnamon cures most diseases.  Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world.  Scientists of today also accept honey as a “ram ban” (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases. 
 
Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.  Science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.  Weekly World News, in its issue dated 17 January, 1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:
 
ARTHRITIS:  Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder.  If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured.  In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon of Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.
 
BAD BREATH:  People of South America, first thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.
 
BLADDER INFECTIONS:  Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it.  It destroys the germs in the bladder.
 
CANCER:  Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully.  Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three times a day.
 
CHOLESTEROL:  Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient has been found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours.  As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured.  According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.
 
COLDS:  Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder daily for three days.  This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.
 
DIABETES:  Cinnamon has been shown to reduce blood sugar and stabilize A1C in diabetics.  Blood sugar can go from ‘pre-diabetic’ to normal in six months of adding cinnamon to your morning oatmeal.
 
FATIGUE:  Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body.  Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible.  Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing your teeth and in the afternoon at about 3:00 pm when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.
 
GAS:  According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that if honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.
 
HEARING LOSS:  Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing. 
 
HEART DISEASES:  Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast.  It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack.  Do this process daily and you will be kept miles away from the next heart attack.  Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat.  In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients sucessfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged;  honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.
 
IMMUNE SYSTEM:  Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks.  Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts.  Constant use of honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacterial and viral diseases.
