With Hurricane Sandy (Frankenstorm to some) on the way, it is a good time to take stock of what herbal supplies you have on hand. Specifically, the herbal support you will be counting on to help soothe and calm your family.
Losing power for extended periods of time, violent storms, damage to home and†property†and the stress of the unknown, all take a toll on each individual in the different way. Having some simple herbal remedies that can help, will be welcome by all and at least THAT is something you can control.
Are you organizing an herbal first aid kit? Then don't forget the symptoms that might not be as visible; stress can weaken our immune system, make it difficult to think carefully, cause us to lose sleep and appetites, and generally wreak havoc on our overall health. Be prepared, and be safe.
