Settling in with an Herbal Giveaway

*****contest closed*****

Hey folks!  So glad to see you at the new site.  I’m looking forward to sharing lots of great stories, recipes, information, products and giveaways with you here at

There’s no better way to kick off the move than with a giveaway, right?  Smile I’m so excited about this particular product because it’s all about one of my absolute favorite subjects – herbs!  The folks at the Bulk Herb Store have been very kind to let me giveaway a copy of Making Herbs Simple Vol. 1 to FIVE of my readers!  Yeah, you heard me – FIVE.

coverA few days ago I received my own copy of Making Herbs Simple Vol. 1.  It truly is a good place for beginner’s to start.  I’m the kind of person that wants a full picture and step-by-step instructions when I’m learning something new.  This dvd does just that with amazingly beautiful graphics.  It’s full of color-rich close-up shots that are very helpful in identifying herbs.  Shoshanna, the host, demonstrates how to dry herbs and make several different tinctures and poultices.  Her mother, Debi, is an absolute delight to watch!  Being from Kentucky I totally ‘get’ her light-hearted and funny spirit.  She puts her own Tennessee spin on the instructional segments and makes each one not only informative but entertaining.

If you’re completely new to herbs, this dvd should be at the top of your list of resources to acquire.  If you’re at all familiar with making your own home remedies then you probably already know most of this stuff.  BUT – there’s always a but, right?  But this dvd would be a great resource to have in any herbal library.  While I knew most of the information presented, it was a great refresher and reminder of some of the herbs I’d forgotten all about.  I’ll definitely watch it again and I look forward to getting Vol. 2 very soon.  Check out the trailor below.

Making Herbs Simple vol. 1

So.  On to the giveaway!  If you’d like to receive your own FREE copy of Making Herbs Simple Vol. 1, visit the Bulk Herb Store website and leave a comment telling me what favorite product is on your wishlist.  (personally I’m torn between more herbs and great books!)

    Fear of the unknow!! I had no idea herbs could be used in so many ways. Allergies, ADHD and Acne just to name a few things I would lke to try. I don’t have a favorite product as I had no idea herbs were used for more than cooking.

  4. Okay, I hope I do this right! #1 on my wishlist from their site would be… SEEDS!! (Not sure why, I usually have ZERO success with seeds…but I just can’t stop trying!) 🙂

    I first became intrigued with herbal tinctures after you showed me your home pharmacy! Impressive! Am hoping to learn much from you of “all things natural”! Just watched the video on liver tincture and got so involved that I almost forgot to come back here to register for the giveaway! As a total newbie to herbs and a lover of learning, I’d most like the book so I can get started!

    I am very new to herbs and the uses of them, so a video and books to help me learn what to do for my family would be wonderful. I’m also new to homesteading but am looking forward to the wealth of information that is available. God’s richest blessings, Carla


  7. The DVDs and the books. There are so many recepies and ideas on that page that to have the DVD would be very nice !


  8. YAY!!!!!! Enter me! I would love love love to win! How exciting is this?! Please let BHS know how much we appreciate their generosity in letting us have a chance to win something like this, so very kind!!

    *Ok, ok, how do I put this on Facebook? For now I put a link and description

    *Oh, and the items I would order at BHS? How much space have you got? 🙂 I have quite a list. The books for sure and some of the hair treatments look amazing. The most intriguing ones to me are their blends for “that time of the month”, I haven’t tried them yet but they are on my list to try soon!

    *I put this on my blog at HCP, included with this post is the link to my mage there

      Beth – the links are great. be sure to leave a comment for each entry, so they’ll all count as separate entries. Just put something like

    How exciting is this. I have had the DVD on my wish list for over a year now. It would be a blessing to win it. I also like the heirloom seeds and the new stress tea. Shoshanna is a wonderful herbalist, wife and mother! Thanks again for the opportunity to win this DVD!


  10. Wow. I LOVE your blog and the giveaway!!
    I Love BHS and I think I would go with more books. I could spend hours just reading there.

    I went to the website and I couldn’t decide on a favorite so here’s my list: love the 100 percent silk scarves, the stress zapper tea (really need that!!!), and the clover honey (a must on my tea). Thanks for hosting…the dvd looks interesting & I know I’m never too old to learn something new.


  14. Posted by Maria on February 3, 2011 at 11:41 pm

    I love about everything on your site. From the books to the “how to cook with herbs”, to everything. I come here allot for information needed on herbs.


  15. Yikes! Who can choose just one item. Definitely the videos volume 1 and 2.

    I’m also interested in the stress teas.

  18. Posted by Marsha on February 4, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    I am interested in more herbs to make tinctures.




  19. Not a favorite but I really could use the liver cleanse tincture. I love books so that would be my favorite!


  20. I also posted on my facebook! Thank you for this chance to win!


  21. I facebooked, and tweeted it.

    My favorite product would be one of the water filters. Probably the Crown Berkley

    I really like The Capsule Machine. You can make your own herb capsules, pretty neat. However I also would like more of those dvd’s.
