Nettle infusion is great for the skin.
Vitamine E and other carotenes from boiled carrots or tomato are good too IF consumed on daily basis.

You may clean the skin with a tincture made of Balsamina impatiens.

IF you crush the the berries the active substances will be better extracted into a decoction.

In the early summer you will be able to collect hawthorn leafs and flowers and dry it for next winter.

Re: Sick all the time!

I used to have the same problem.

I hope you have good sleaping habits.
Echinacea and chaga tea are great in stimulating the immune system. I prefere chaga.

When I started eating omega-3 rich herring 2-3 times per week I reduced my colds.

Re: Love herbs and supplement-these ok 2gether?

Hello There have been some days since your post without any reply. Maybe that’s because many people in this forum collect the herbs themselfes or buy whole dried herbs, not supplement tablets. If you collect your own herbs then you know you get the real thing. Even in towns and suburbs you can colle...
