There is yet another introduction to make in Forest and Field.
This time it's not a new person but purely a new product hand made by yours truly.
Below you'll see me front and center among a group of healers, some of which I spent two years learning herbal medicine with. I completed a basic and advanced course at The School of Traditional Western Herbalism and may someday complete the third clinical year when I've got the resources.
This is where Forest and Field Apothecary has it's roots.
The legality of selling herbal medicine for internal use is something I have yet to look into so for the sake of simplicity I am kicking things off with herbal salves. These will be made with my own wild harvested herbs and some organic purchased herbs when necessary. Each will be for a different ailment or skin issue.
Each of their bases may include the following:
Cold Pressed Olive Oil
100% Local Beeswax
Vitamin E Oil
A new salve recipe I am working on is for cuts and scrapes as well as fungal skin infections.
I wild harvested Usnea, a lichen which is anti-fungal, out in the forest.
As well as Cedar, also anti-fungal, and Oregon Grape root, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, nearby my house.
In the next few months we will prepare to launch our online store where you can purchase these along with Johnny's wood crafts. Show me some love if you are interested in these!
