I went to a meeting of the Ladies’ Homestead Gathering of Statham Georgia a few days ago. It was so much fun. There were about 40 women there and we all made two tinctures and one salve each. I really liked that it was hands-on and not just a lecture or even a discussion.
One tincture is a wound wash and one is for stress relief. The salve is sort of an all-purpose skin cream for bug bites, dry skin, ect. Beyond these great herbal medicines, I’m really excited to have found this group. There’s so much knowledge that these women have, I’m so excited to learn as much as I can!
There was also one woman who was trying to get rid of a few looms and gave me one.
I’m going to try to figure it out (with lots of help!) and weave something on it.
