Herbal First Aid Kit came about through my studies to create my own herbal first aid kit. I love to work with herbs and natural medicines, and wanted to understand the items that I felt were most important to my family. I believe there is a place for modern health care, but I also am a firm believer that there are many things that we could use naturally, to heal minor ailments. I believe that these things in nature are there for us to learn about, and use for our better good. If I can avoid another trip to the doctor, or help heal someone through some of my natural remedies or other suggestions, then I have been successful in creating my own herbal first aid kit. I reference this book often in my own home, and it has helped to heal countless little complaints.
I have always loved exploring the various plants of nature. I have six children of my own, and now three grandchildren, and have avoided many trips to the doctor, or emergency, because of learning about herbal medicine. I think it is really important to incorporate herbal medicine with modern health care to offer overall health. I am an herbalist, author, mother, grandma, and wear too many other hats in the home to list them all here.
