    Great give a way ! I have used tinctures made with alchohol mostly I believe I’d prefer the glycerite because it does have a sweet taste to it.

    Hi, I have used some of your products in the past and I would love to get the Alcohol Based First Aid kit for my 14 year old son. He is interested in first aid and herbalism. We’ve been considering doing a herbalism course together over the summer.

    I would like the alcohol version, I do not know what the other version is. I am new to using herbs so i found your website searching about info on herbs like slippery Elm, Wild Yam, Mustard seed oil, and something else called aboney root wich i cant find anything on it. Have you ever heard of aboney root ? Thanks so much!

    We would love the Herbal Remedy First Aid Kit without alcohol. Our children are growing up with herbal knowledge. They ask for certain herbs and oils specifically when they need their help. I think the kit would only add to their appreciation and love for herbs and oils as healers.

    This is my first time at your website. I am pleased to find it as now I can look to one source for herbal information instead of spending all kinds of time wading through internet / commercial searches trying to decide who is believable. I have just moved to a place where I want to start an extensive herb garden. I have begun making some of my own household products. A bridal shower gift last year was a box full of homemade housekeeping products in recycled containers with awareness information. The whole group of 40 was impressed and educated at the same time. One of the areas I hope to learn more about is making my own essential oils. I must go to bed now ( it is 4:30 am) but I will be back to learn more about herbs and herb crafting! Thanks for the drawing. I think alcohol would be better for me to start with. Thanks again.

    Hi again! This is Shelton and I am 8 years old. I love Herbalrootszine and learning about herbs. We are making the slippery elm vinegar. If I won the first aid kit, I would want the alcohol version since it lasts longer. My sisters get boo boos all the time, so I could put it to good use!
