Herbal Support During Natural Disasters

By October 27, 2012

Herb Tea

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.

A cup of something warm can certainly be soothing in times of stress. Hopefully people with power outages have camping equipment or candles on hand to warm water, and get them through. It’s all about attitude even with limited resources it can be turned into an adventure

We were assessing our own supplies. Everyone needs some jugs of water, or freezer bags full in their freezer. At last resort, we purchased a solar cooker- Tulsi Hybrid Solar Oven. and granite-ware pans. We could boil water on the sunny days. On cloudy days, with generator power, the oven also works. We could make tea without heat, but it’s much slower of course. My neighbors are of the Mormon faith and they are seriously committed to self-sufficiency with regard to food & water storage. It is indeed impressive! Camping equipment with those tiny propane stoves are perfect. We can learn alot from the mountain climbers and Sherpas. They always have their herbal teas.
