Pruning my new stevia plant. I added 5-6 leaves to a cup of peppermint tea this morning and it turned out as sweet as if I'd added a teaspoon of sugar!
The most effective way to take advantage of the health benefits red clover (and other herbs such as oatstraw and nettle) have to offer is as a nourishing infusion. Put one cup of the dried herb into a quart size mason jar, fill with boiling water and let steep overnight (or 4-6 hours). In the morning, strain and drink. You can add honey and lemon (or even a little salt). Visit http://www.susunweed.com/How_to_make_Infusions.htm for more information about nourishing herbal infusions.
Great information, thank you for sharing. Any tips on preparing and using the Red Clover?

HERB BLURB: Stinging Nettle
Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) is a common weed throughout much of the world. The dried herb makes a nourishing herbal infusion that packs more energy per cup than any stimulant, and without the downside of caffeine or stimulating herbs like cayenne and ginger. Tired teenagers, sleep-deprived new moms, stressed executives, wakeful menopausal gals, and wise women of all ages depend on stinging nettle to restore mood, replenish energy, and guarantee sound sleep.
Nettle is amazingly rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals, especially the critical trace minerals: anti-cancer selenium, immune-enhancing sulphur, memory-enhancing zinc, diabetes-chasing chromium, and bone-building boron. A quart of nettle infusion contains more than 1000 milligrams of calcium, 15000 IU of vitamin A, 760 milligrams of vitamin K, 10% protein, and lavish amounts of most B vitamins.
Source: www.susunweed.comThe leaves, stem and roots of stinging nettle are covered with minute “hairs” which trigger the release of formic acid (the same irritant present in ant bites) when you “rub them the wrong way.” The "sting" is deactivated by drying, steaming or cooking.

Thank you Kimeli for the video I will be watching this video. We are together! When I produce more I will let you know. This was my first try at growing them, I will learn to produce more in the near future.
I will have to go and get this one! I have not used the toothpaste yet. When I have finished the fluoride free toothpaste I currently have, I will try the toothpaste I learned to make. I will try the witch hazel, thank you again.
