The Sept/Oct issue is in the mail, so it will be arriving at the homes of subscribers over the next couple of weeks.  Pdf subscribers will be getting the link on the 20th.  Our talented and generous writers have once again managed to come up with some really original, interesting herbal information that will inspire each and every one of us to do something new, see something just a little differently, or work with a new plant.  This issue seems to have a focus on roots and pumpkins, with many other wonderful topics too.

This looks like a great round up of recipes. I’ve been seeing Elderflower in so many Pinterest recipes as an immune system booster. How fun to make it into a soap!
