Making Home Remedies with Fresh St. John's Wort

Making Home Remedies with Fresh St. John's Wort

There are a number of things you can make with freshly picked St. John's Wort, our whole family gets involved with harvesting and making things with this herb. The flowers are the perfect size for small hands to pick, and watching oils and tinctures turn red is fascinating for children.

Kid's Herb camp

Kid's Herb camp

Growing up on a herb farm to naturopathic parents with a family supplement business is a unique childhood experience. The entire family spends the seasons exploring the ever changing natural environment and using plants to make remedies. Herbs are an integral part of our everyday lives, and we grow, wildcraft, harvest and create herbal products every single day. We sleep in tipis among the herb fields, we daydream between rows of echinacea, and enjoy the fragrance of fresh blooming holy basil. This year for the first time, we have chosen to share aspects of our life by hosting a herb camp for kids on our property.
