We’ve all heard the alarming statistics that tell us global climate change is real and happening now, even if we don’t all agree on the cause. Herbalists and botanists are on the forefront of the move to save as many of our plant friends as possible, but they’re just the tip of the iceberg. Today’ we’re talking with Godmother of American Herbalism Rosemary Gladstar about plant conservation and how all of us can save and protect our beloved plant species from extinction.

We discussed “Echinacea Plus Elderberry Matches Tamiflu for Early Treatment of Flu” by Stephen Daniells, published on Nutraingredients-USA.com in June, 2015.

In this show we answer a question from a listener on substituting coconut oil in salve recipes.
