I can't say enough about the beginner's kit I got from LearningHerbs.com. Everything is so professionally done and packaged--simple things but so very nice. I've watched the tutorial on the echinacea tincture and have started mine, and I just watched the Healing Herbal Salve. I'll make that when everyone is actually asleep (for good!) one evening. These things are so much more approachable to me now, and I appreciate the Gallaghers' ideas genuinely.
