Welcome to the thirty-seventh edition of Wildcrafting Wednesday!

Wildcrafting Wednesday is hosted by:

While traditional wildcrafting refers to gathering herbs and plants in the wild to use for food and medicine, this is a blog hop for sharing self-sufficiency and homesteading tips, tried and true home-remedies, and your favorite herbal uses.

It’s a place to gather information on ways to incorporate 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 and simple steps to become more healthy and 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. 🙂

  • Hi! Thanks for hosting!

    This week I’ve posted on preventing and even reversing osteoporosis with nutrition, which should be a concern for everyone over 30. I also posted on how to enjoy dandelions as a delicious nutrient dense food and medicine, including 2 recipes—1 for dandelion wine!

    Have a great week!

  • Awesome! Thanks for sharing Dawn, I can’t wait to read your posts! 🙂

  • Hi, Kathy
    Thanks for hosting Wild Crafting Wednesday once again. This week I shared a post on some experiments I’ve been doing using flax seeds to make a moisturizing hand sanitizer. Commercial hand sanitizers are expensive, and contain several toxic chemical ingredients that you don’t want to put on your kid’s hands. And yet there are times when you are away from soap and water and need to clean up. Using flax seed, glycerine and vodka or orange vinegar infusion you can create your own moisturizing hand sanitizer for pennies.

    I hope your readers enjoy this article.
