Lemon Balm, 3 great powerless cookers, Herbal Tinctures & Salves.

Got a few good ones for you this time.... well I always think the things I blog about are good, but of course I have to say it anyway.  :-)

19 great Lemon Balm uses.

Makes me wish I'd picked up a lemon balm plant when I saw it at the local Wal-Mart earlier in the summer.  :-)

 And here's a great article from The Survival Mom about how to still be able to cook your food when your power is out.  Seems like such a simple thing, but I think we'd all be amazed how much of our daily lives revolve around having electricity.

I totally want to try these!  Maybe I can get my husband to bring home some boxes, maybe an old coffee can or two from his office so I can try.  The Wonder Oven sounds pretty interesting too.  :-)

And on The Survival Mom Radio Network.... 

I love the host, Sylvia Britton... maybe it's her southern accent, but she just reminds me of that kind, slightly eccentric aunt or something that you really just totally love her... not only for her wisdom, but her sense of humor as well.  :-)

Benefits of Shea Butter, Solar Polarity, Copper Consumption linked to Alzheimer's, Strawberry Gardening, Natural Skin Care.

I'm just going to Jump right into it this time with some really great finds that I think you will enjoy as much as I did.  Maybe more even.  :-)

Here's one for the intellectuals...  I found it pretty interesting actually.  I guess stories about the sun & the solar system have always fascinated me to some extent.  :-)

And this last is completely un-related, but man... do I ever wish I'd seen this last spring!

Pamela's Strawberry Container Garden

DIY - Natural Blemish Treatments

I know, I'm all over the board yet again, but I found this to be very interesting.  Might even recommend it to my pre-teen niece.  Just in case.  Couldn't hurt to have the info anyway right? :-)

I actually already use the second, the conditioner.  It definitely leaves my hair feeling very soft.  :-)

Mmmmm... that looks SO good!

And I recently started a new Facebook page because my friends and family expressed an interest in buying some of my homemade DIY goodies.  I'd love it if you checked it out... I call it:  Wild Roses Iowa.  Let me know what you think.  I'll probably add more items as I learn to make them, so please stay tuned!  :-)

A great post from Jamerrill Stewart, Five amazing herbal teas, Homeowner sues to stop smart meter installation, Benefits of Olive Oil, Black Seed Oil and a great video from Tammy Trayer of Mountain Woman Journals! :-)

I wasn't really planning to update tonight/ this morning, but when I was messing around on pinterest (seriously WAY too easy to kill time there... LOL!), I found a goodie or two that I totally had to share.  :-)

I totally forgot that I followed Jamerrill's blog at all.... Maybe I ought to check it a bit more often.  ;-)

How to harvest Dandelion - Mountain Woman Journals.

If you'll remember, my last post contained a rather useful bit of information about how truly useful Dandelions are, so I thought this video was particularly great.  Thanks to Tammy Trayer from Mountain Woman Journals.  Be sure to catch Tammy's radio show (of the same name... Mountain Woman Journals) on The Survival Mom Radio Network along with other great shows from a really great bunch of ladies that I truly enjoy hearing from each week.  It's my favorite thing to tune in to when I actually have my "me time".  ;-)
