Bursting with ways to downshift, simplify, preserve resources and honor the planet, Lemons and Lavender (Viva Editions, 2012) will give you tools to reclaim a purer, tastier, healthier and less expensive way of life. Billee Sharp shares her "freeconomics" approach to budgeting in this step-by-step guide to the good life. The following excerpt is from chapter 2, “Health Is Wealth.”

You can purchase this book from the Mother Earth Living store: Lemons and Lavender.

It’s great to be able to treat your family’s ailments at home without having to take off for the doctor’s office. Of course, if you feel there is cause for serious concern, a doctor’s visit is a must. However, there are plenty of powerful curative and preventive remedies available that you can stock at home at very little expense. Today, with the cost of health care skyrocketing, healthy home remedies are a smart option to add to your family’s regimen.

I keep a good selection of herbal teas for everyday drinking and for use as remedies. I also keep several teapots and designated mason jars on hand for steeping tea. If you are using an herbal tea as a curative, it’s a good idea to steep it overnight so the tea is stronger—then you can add hot water to dilute to your taste. Nettle tea steeped overnight becomes a brilliant dark green, and subtle flavors like red raspberry leaf teas become more defined.
