Re: Please Read: Welcome Back

Is there a board missing, or has it been omitted or perhaps merged into another? I seem to recall a board titled ''something-something and plant allies :)'' And does anyone know of Sapphire Kate has re-registered, or perhaps using a different name? I don't see her on the list. I miss her knowledge a...

Re: St. John's Wort Oil Extraction

Hi Rosepower! I make more SJW oil than anything else, my friends and family use it often, as well. I've experienced these issues a couple of times.

Sarsaparilla

The only species of sarsaparilla that I can find here is Smilax utilis. Interchangeable with ornata\officinalis, anyone know? Also, in tincture or extract form, does any chromium get extracted?

Re: Do you use mushrooms?

Stinkhorn---is that the one that looks like a slender, tall and pale stalk of asparagus (sort of) and stinks worse than an overflowing outhouse?? The first year we hunted here we came across a few of those, they had tons of flies on them. I will never forget that smell. Putrid! Chagas grow on dead o...

Re: Do you use mushrooms?

Mushroom identification was one of the first things I learned when we moved here to Sweden---since they are so abundant! There is a wonderful website here with very helpful mycologists. Black chanterelles are called black trumpets here, we have yet to find any of those. Regular (golden) chanterelles...

Re: Lady A, Rose Red--self testing??

Btw, I don't see that Sapphire Kate has re-registered? Perhaps she is using a different user name? Anyone know?

Lady A, Rose Red--self testing??

Hello all- I have been combing through the archives for an old post of mine for the past 2 hours and cannot find it. I am hoping one of you will do a run down on self testing again? The steps and such. If I remember correctly, one of the ''Lady's'' posted a link to an article about another herbalist...
