Welcome to the fortieth 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. 🙂

    After a long winter, it’s so nice to have fresh greens growing in the garden. Here are some tips for keeping lettuce from getting bitter. Thanks for hosting.

    Thanks for hosting! This is inspiring me to add more ‘how-tos’ that aren’t just regular recipes to my blog. Hope someone finds my feta instructions helpful!

  • I always enjoy sharing at Wildcrafting Wednesday, but even more, I love reading what everyone else has shared!!
    I always learn something new and find great blogs that I wouldn’t have otherwise known about. Thanks for hosting!

  • Thanks for hosting again this week. My gardens pretty behind with this cold spring we are having. But the dandelions are giving us lots of greens to feast on. My share this week is a multitude of things you can make with dandelions — all good for you and healing. The university of Windsor, in Canada, is using dandelion root infusion in the treatment of leukemia, successfully. It also has one of the highest potassium profiles of any herb or vegetable. In this post, I share a recipe for crunchy, melt-in-your-mouth, dandelion snacks, that will have your family picking the greens themselves, so you can make more.
