Show 107: Herb Lab – Back to School with Herbs
As the weather cools down, our immune systems should be geared up to do the thankless work of keeping colds and flus from settling in for the winter. Podcast hosts, Sue and Candace, review some of their favorite formulas for fortifying the body. Recipes from herbalist authors Thomas Easley and Rosalee de Foret come in handy when looking for different options to bring healthy herbs into our daily routine.
A cup of tea may be an old stand by but other choices are just as satisfying. Electuaries, smoothies, and bitters spice up the selection of immune strengthening offerings. Sue and Candace have put these concoctions to the test. How do they work? What are alternatives? As always, the quest for healthy living is lined with questions and experiments.
