Welcome to the forty-first 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. 🙂

  • Thanks for hosting! I shared a recipe for green soup from foraged greens along with information on reducing the oxalic acid in the greens to improve mineral absorption.

  • I also shared a recipe for sardine salad from my iron site.

  • Susan V says:

    I’ve shared a post which is a book review and a giveaway of the book Born Again Dirt by Noah Sanders.

  • Thanks for hosting again this week, Kathy. I shared a post on how to domesticate wild fruit, to make it grow larger, juicier, and just as rich in antioxidants. Its easier to harvest, too.

  • Amanda says:

    Thank you so much for hosting! I love this blog hop. I posted about Oil Cleansing Method and how to clean your face naturally. I am hoping next week my children will let me get more into writing about herbs again. 🙂

  • Oh dear, I forgot to leave a comment! I’m very sorry, but I’m here to do it now! 🙂

    Thanks so much for hosting, and making it possible for my blog posts to be seen by more people. 🙂

    I linked up to a couple of gardening posts: harvesting radish seeds and learning about calendula; and a couple of livestock posts: keeping rabbits cool in the summer and simple brooder instructions. I hope it’s ok that I posted so many–if not, please let me know and I’ll be sure to limit myself in the future.

    Thanks again!
