TInctures, oils, salves, more plant stuff

(Calendula salve)
As if the house isn’t a big enough mess what with the dye and other messy occupations I’ve been learning to make herbal salves. I’m lucky enough that there is a really knowledgeable herbalist, Julie James/Green Wisdom Herbal Studies who lectures at a local shop, the Green Man. Additionally I’ve learned quite a bit from the HerbMentor site.

(Plantine Salve)

Next to and mixed in my dye garden are a few medicinal herbs and things other people call weeds.  Plantain for example, makes up a good salve.

 
Rosemary and Lavender tincture.
