The Herbal How To Guide is dedicated to sharing knowledge of how to work with plants and natural products. I don't tell you 'what' to take (an herbal cure is for your Medical Professional to decide) I teach you HOW to prepare it, the base knowledge. From growing herbs and wildcrafting, to simples and herb bulk tea, to preparing culinary herbs, to playing with herbal crafts (such as making herbal soaps, creams and lotions).
My dedication extends to the love of our natural world, living a beautiful, comfortable life, and learning how to work with Nature. It's about beautiful gardens, both created and wild, and heavenly smells on a nature walk (no matter where you live). It's about relieving the stress of life and learning how to stop and smell the roses.
Plants have a rich and beautiful history and, as each of us learns and tries something new, we add to that history with our own discoveries. Many of our medicines today began with a knowledge of herbs and applying an herbal cure. Cooking with culinary herbs includes the art of understanding what spices will enhance a meal (or bring comfort to our loved ones). And we should be asking, "Was it magic, or was there truth behind some of the old wives-tales?" Use Herbal How To Guide to begin your walk of discovery.
And then there's the unparalleled beauty of our Natural World!
Over 35 years of wild harvesting and photographing herbs, and the locations I've been in, has given me some spectacular pictures.
Here at Herbal How To Guide, I look forward to sharing the knowledge of herb, gardening information and growing herbs, basic preparations with both herbs and natural products, teaching ways to live in an Eco Friendly home, and much more. Part of my goal is to present the information in an 'easy to understand' format.

Meeting Mother Nature
Meeting Mother Nature is a book best described as a text book
preparing people for the adventure of harvesting wild herbs. However,
it is written in a lighthearted format, includes several beautiful
photos, and several little stories of Sandy Marie's 30+ years
experience in the woods.
From the book you will learn:
* The importance of proper clothing.
* Best tools of the trade.
* What else you'll find in the woods (like animals and bugs) and how to deal with them.
* Having your body ready, and first aid in the field.
* The many uses of herbs, and includes instruction for medicinal preparations.
* About getting out into your own yard.
* The top 10 useful yard herbs / weeds.
Meeting Mother Nature is designed to be a book that's enjoyable to read, cover-to-cover.
