When I set out to invest my money, I know that I like to find things that support the earth in an eco friendly way. That is why I like to know what kinds of things are in the funds I buy. For example, I would not want to have a mutual fund that featured stocks from Procter and Gamble because they test on animals.
One great way to invest is to purchase gold bullion from Monex enterprises. They've been helping people invest in gold and precious metals for a while so you know that they know what they are doing. Gold is one of those timeless investments. It has been highly valued and prized since ancient times. The next "big" company could collapse at any minute. Gold, however, will always be in style.

Chamomile Body Oil
1/2 cup cold pressed olive oil (the good stuff!)
20 drops chamomile essential oil
Mix the two together and store in a glass bottle in a cool place. I go through mine so quickly, however, I have mine by the sink in an uncovered ramakin for easy use. Not the best method of storage, but it will be gone in no time.

- Chickweed (wild green growing by my outdoor faucet)
The Asparagas are in season right now where I live in Massachusetts and the strawberries will be following shortly. And the chickweed patch is looking great - though I can scrounge for chickweed even in winter.

After a long hiatus (too long) I am now back in what I call "herbal mode". This means that I drink nourishing herbal infusions by the gallon, trek outside to learn about the wild plants, and in general work on building my health.
Right now, the herb I am obsessed with learning about is stinging nettle. It has long been my favorite, I've just been neglecting it for quite some time. I guess I just didn't want it.
In case you are curious, nourishing herbal infusions are prepared as follows:
Measure one ounce of dried herb into a one quart mason jar. Cover with boiling water and cover. Let stand for 4-8 hours and then refrigerate.
Herbs for nourishing infusions:
Only certain herbs are suitable for infusions. Here's a list:
- lemon balm
- stinging nettle
- red clover (mixed with a pinch of mint)
- mullein (with a pinch of mint)
You need to use the dried herb in order for it to be effective.
I learned the information about the nourishing herbal infusions from the teachings of Susun Weed.You can find out more in one of her books Healing Wise (Wise Woman Herbal Series) (Wise Woman Herbal Series)
