Heal Local book is about understanding the value of eating and buying local. Taking back our food, goods and services from multinational corporations and sourcing them from small growers, producers, artisans and entrepreneurs benefits our families, our environment and our communities. Heal Local argues that "100-mile health care" can be equally valuable in terms of how we treat illness and injury and maintain wellness.
Allergency Herbal Honey Booster provides supreme support for allergy sufferers, regardless of what ails them: dust, mold, pet, pollen, or food allergies. Designed to be stirred into honey, herbal honey boosters are a combination of powdered medicinal herbs specially formulated to help ease a variety of common ailments, from aches and pains, to allergies, to digestive issues, or insomnia.
Universal Herbal Balm provides relief for small cuts, scrapes, bumps, bruises, and bites. Unlike commercial preparations, this Universal Balm is safe for young children and animals because it’s even safe to ingest.
Cool Down Loose Leaf Tea, the herbs in the tea have a long and successful history of cooling down a fever that rages too high or too long. Also, you will love it in the summer when the body needs to cool off in the heat. Have a sunburn? Leaf Tea is first aid for your skin, whether you drink it or add a cold, soaked tea cloth to your burn. For best results, serve hot for fever and cold for heat stress.
Gentian Herbal Digestive Bitters 2 oz. bottles provide a simple and safe way to improve digestion. Gentian Bitters are a unique twist on the classic bitter plant, Gentiana lutea. We recommend adding them to a salad dressing! Bitters can help balance the digestive system. Traditionally used to increase the absorption of nutrients during digestion, you can also use bitters to help curb sugar cravings. The bitter flavor encourages the gall bladder, liver, and stomach to produce appropriate levels of digestive juices.
