With winter cold and flu season upon us, don’t be at the mercy of whatever bug is going around. Explore ways to strengthen your immune system and learn how to make herbals with anti-viral properties. These will include herbal teas and long lasting herbal tinctures/extracts. Discover ways to help keep yourself and children healthy through the winter.
