  • Mood:
Took chair (and something else) I'd promised 'Chelle over to the apartment -- she now has reading material for the weekend if she wants to!

Picked up a 4 oz bottle of Lavender before the price goes OMG (bad season for most of the producers this year).

We have Olive Oil here, but not QUITE enough for the salve...do I want to get more or fill it out with jojoba (pricey!) or regular Wesson (perfectly acceptable)?  Uh, nevermind, I just answered that question!

One of the instructors on the DVD for the herb class said she uses "cheap, awful whiskey" for tinctures -- "they're medicine, they're supposed to taste bad!"   Boy, that's the truth -- I don't remember anything I was ever prescribed that didn't make me gag!  And. well, if it tastes GOOD -- like a lot of cough syrups -- kids might decide they need it when they don't.  *Eyes a certain person*

Echinacea tincture: 
apparently good to prevent colds, use on abraded skin as a wash, what else?  C'mon, peeps, I know some of you know a LOT more about this than I do!

And do I really want to make and drink this "nettle infusion"?  Am I gonna go "ICK!" and spit it in the sink?  What does THAT do for you?  Spring tonic, sort of?  Maybe if I add honey....
