When I first started studying herbs and herbalism, I was fascinated by the multitude of natural ingredients that are used alone or combined with other ingredients to make herbal preparations like lotions, salves, soaks, and compresses. The following includes interesting tidbits of information for each ingredient, but is by no means a complete list of their attributes or actions. Of course, a lot more could be said about each ingredient, yet this list might just inspire you to look for more ways to use a particular ingredient or to try some of these in a new way! As always, please feel free to add your knowledge or share your thoughts!
