There is a definite peace that comes from having a ready supply of herbs on hand for a sudden illness or emergency.

Recently I had a family member in another state call because she was very sick. She wanted to know what she could do. She had nothing on-hand in her house.  If the phones lines were down, even cell phones will not work in a major disaster. What if she could not call to get advice?

Most important is herbal education – this invaluable skill will bless many in circumstances that we cannot predict.  For the best herbal education we recommend The School of Natural Healing - (www.snh.cc).

Look around us – the world is having so many challenges from weather, earthquake, wars, etc. Becoming self reliant is becoming critical! Here is a list of herbs that I think every home should have on hand (you can customize it to your needs).  The following list is for a family of four for one year.
