Herbal Nurturing Giveaway!

If you are anything like me, you enjoy being frugal and that includes saving money on medical expenses.  One small way to do that is by making some of your own balms and herbal remedies for common family ailments.  Most of the ingredients that go into these recipes are cheaper than over the counter remedies and much cheaper than an unnecessary trip to the ER.  Plus, they are all natural and since you are making them, you know exactly what is in them and in turn you can feel more confident in what you are giving to your family. 

I recently got a copy of "Herbal Nurturing: A Family Healing & Learning Guide" and I am impressed.  It has dozens of recipes for at home natural healing for basic ailments.  I can't wait to try my hand at making the 3 in 1 Healing Balm which you can then use to make lip balm, sinus and sleep rub, and a scrapes soother.  There are recipes for a headache soother, pink eye relief, cough syrup, immune booster syrup and more.  There are also a few recipes for womanly "ailments" during that time of the month, pregnancy and postpartum.

Michele, the author of Herbal Nurturing over at Frugal Granola has generously offered a free copy of her ebook to the winner of this giveaway!  Yay!!!
