I am curious – how many people here who use herbal remedies actually grow & harvest (or wildcraft) and prepare their remedies themselves, as opposed to just purchasing them?
Do you notice any difference in the quality or effectiveness of personally prepared products?
i for one use herbal remedies for some ailments. i am living in a rural community here in the Philippines and i have a herbal garden around the house. for fresh cuts i pound about a handful of kamunggay leaves and placed it over the cut. for mild coughs, diarrhea there are a lot of herbs to concoct.
the effectiveness is really not that far different except in extreme cases where the purchased products are conveniently ready to use.
