Essential Herbal March/April 2018 (#98)

This issue was interesting to put together.  Our deadline fell on the same day we were flying across the country for a week with the west coast crew.  It happened, though, and now it's in the mail.  We're working on a cool new website that should be up soon, and the time of year that is typically sleepy and dreamy, is anything but!  Hopefully this explains the dearth of blog posts.  I'll get back to it soon.

Here's the new issue (SUBSCRIBE):


                             First, look at that fabulous Springtime cover by Aimee Bungard!

Field Notes from the Editor, Tina Sams   
        Where I explain my tenuous relationship with math.
Western Beargrass, Sandy Michelsen
        Traditional uses as food and medicine for an unusual (and beautiful) plant.
Slough with the Old, In with the New, Cathy Calfchild
         Skincare with kitchen cosmetics!
Molly of the West, My Latest Skincare Obsession,  Molly Sams
         Someone is having a good time checking out the Asian markets.
The Best Culinary Herbs You Have Not Yet Tried, Marcy Lautanen-Raleigh   
         There are a couple in here that I will be trying this summer for the first time.
Ferns - The Ancient Ones, Debra Sturdevant  
         Ferns have a lot to offer us, in medicinal and culinary ways.
Cold/Congestion Shower Tabs, Tina Sams   
         Still some nasty germs floating around.  Breathe deep in the shower.
Scented Geraniums - A Victorian Delight, Barbara Steele   
         Good info on why you'll want these beauties in the garden.  Also, I just noticed a huge glaring error (on our part - not the info).  Sigh... it wouldn't be TEH without one or two.
         Make some jelly with the included recipe.
Dill - More Than Pickles, Maryanne Schwartz  
         Lore and information, along with a couple great recipes. 
Flower Essences: Healing “Co-creatively,” Jen Frey
         Jen talks about the sparkling Dinoflagellates and an essence she made off the island of Vieques.  Learn about the history of essences, how we communicate with plants (or perhaps how they communicate with us), and how to make your own essences.  
In Memorium: James (Jim) A. Duke, PhD, Susanna Reppert/Brill
         We lost an immense influence and an amazing mind.  Susanna remembers him here.  
The Case for Cannabis - A Natural (R)Evolution (Part 2 of 2), Lisa Camasi 
         In part 2, Lisa shares the different properties that occur in some of the various components     and how to best utilize them for medical relief.
Plant This Instead, Kathy Musser   
         Kathy helps guide us through readjusting our goals when perhaps we don't have the proper site  for the plant we originally visualized in a particular spot.  Lots of ideas!
What are Liberty Teas? Jackie Johnson  
         Most of us don't know that the Boston Tea Party was just one of many such revolts.  There were also many substitutes, and Jackie provides us with some historic blends!
Reflections of Winter, Gale La Scala
         Some people aren't done with winter yet.   And from the other end of the spectrum:
10 Ways to Combat Cabin Fever, Rita Richardson

See you all next time!  Be sure to read the blurb about our 100th issue discount page if you're a business that herbies need to know about (no MLM's and at the publisher's discretion).  It's a great way to make some waves.
