My Favorite 5 Power Herbs

Comfrey ~ Garlic ~ Mullein ~ Plantain ~ Yarrow

These are my 5 favorite and most common go to power herbs that I grow in my own yard. I can use these plants entirely, from root to flower, for food, medicine and other survival uses.


I began learning about the power of plants in the mid 1980's. I wanted to know everything I could about Wilderness Survival, and started educating myself in every way I could. I wanted to know all about the edible, medicinal, and utilitarian uses of plants. My fascination continually grew as I found myself swimming through a never ending book of knowledge and wisdom called Mother Earth and Father Spirit.


I wanted to test and try everything I read in a book, or learned in a class in the wilderness. I wanted to get to know every plant I could and how to use them for all there intended uses. I wanted to know how to identify them in every season. I was blown away with the results of my efforts.


I have witnessed so many healing miracles with each of these sacred herbs over the last few decades. I hope you come to enjoy these herbs, and so many others, as you progress on your own healing journey. I hope you enjoy my stories and experiences as you read abut my how I now utilize these powerful and sacred herbs with my family in my own home.

Making Herbal Tea

Fresh Herbal Tea & Dried Herbal Tea

Fresh Herbal Tea is when I make tea from live plants.

i.e. when I go out and gather some fresh leaves or flowers off the plant to prepare an herbal tea.

3-4 tablespoons of fresh cut herb per 8 oz. of boiling water. You can adjust amount for strength and flavor.

Dried Herbal Tea is when I make tea from dried plants.

i.e. when I have previously harvested and dried out the plant to prepare an herbal tea.

1-2 tablespoons of dried herb per 8 oz. of boiling water. You can adjust amount for strength and flavor.


STEP 1

Bring at least 8 oz. of pure water to a boil and then pour boiling water into your empty cup.


STEP 2

Have your fresh or dried herb in a tea infuser, ready to place into your cup of hot water.


STEP 3

Place your prepared tea infuser into your cup of hot water.


STEP 4

Cover and let steep for about 20-30  minutes.


STEP 5

Enjoy your herbal tea.
