Welcome to the thirty-third edition of Wildcrafting Wednesday!
Wildcrafting Wednesday is hosted by:
- Sharon @ Woodwife’s Journal,
- Laurie @ Common Sense Homesteading,
- and me! 🙂
While traditional wildcrafting refers to gathering herbs and plants in the wild to use for food and medicine, this is a blog hop for gathering your favorite old-time, traditional herbal posts and home remedies. It’s a place to gather information on ways to incorporate herbs and old fashioned wisdom in our day-to-day life. It is anything and everything herbal – from crafts to cleaning to tinctures to cooking – it is remedies and natural cures made at home from natural ingredients – it is self-sufficient living and back-to-basics tips to save food, money, and resources – if it involves herbs or traditional methods of homemaking and home healing then we want to read about it!
In other words, this is a “one stop shop” for the past weeks best tips on how to use herbs and simple steps you can take at home to be more healthy and become more self-reliant! Please join us! 🙂
Guidelines for Participation:
1. Please link up your blog post using the Linky widget below. If you are posting a recipe, only real food recipes are permitted please. This means no processed food ingredients!
2. Please link the URL of your actual blog post and not your blogs home page. That allows future readers who find this post and go to your link to be able to find what they’re looking for.
3. Please place a link back to this post. That way your readers can benefit from all the ideas too. This also helps out the other participants who are hoping to get more traffic to their blogs. If you’re new to blogging here’s what you do: Copy the URL of Wildcrafting Wednesday from your browser address bar. Then edit your post by adding something like, “This post was shared on Wildcrafting Wednesday” at the end of your post. Then highlight “Wildcrafting Wednesday”, click the “link” button on your blogging tool bar, and paste the URL into that line. That’s it!
4. Please only link posts that fit the carnival description. Old and archived posts are welcome as long as you post a link back as described above. Please don’t link to giveaways or promotions for affiliates or sponsors. That keeps our links valuable in the future since a link to a giveaway three months old isn’t going to be worth browsing in three months time, but a link to an herbal tip will be.
5. Please leave a comment. 🙂
6. Don’t have a blog? We still want to hear from you! Please leave your herbal tip, recipe, or home remedy in the comments.
7. And bloggers, please check out the other posts and leave a comment for them too. 🙂 I know that we would all love to hear from each other. 🙂

Hello & thank you for hosting us Kathy!
I’m sharing pictures of some beautiful little apples that I gleaned from an abandoned roadside orchard last fall. Enjoy!

Thanks for hosting Wild Crafting Wednesdays again. This week I’m sharing a post about the 2012 Herb of the Year – The Wild Rose. Wild Roses are full of amazing healing properties — they are analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and anti-septic. They help cleanse the liver, kidneys, and lymphatic system, making them perfect for herbal deodorants, and healing balms. They are also nutritive. Wild rose hips have more vitamin C than oranges. My article includes instructions for extracting the goodness from roses and even how to make beads from the left over pulp. I think you’ll really enjoy this one.
Thanks for hosting!!
This week I’ve posted on the dangers of disposable diapers for International Real Diaper Week and the “Great Cloth Diaper Change” World Record Competition, which begins April 16, 2012.
Did you know that even “eco-friendly” disposables can cause major health and environmental problems, or that it’s pretty easy to learn to raise your baby without using any diapers at all?
