There is a group of herbs that have the amazing ability to increase energy levels during the day, reduce tension due to stress, increase endurance, significantly accelerate the recovery process after illness and provide greater mental alertness and deep, restful sleep. As a bonus they are also non toxic and have no side-effects! I personally make sure that I take some of these EVERY DAY.

I eat some goji berries every day. Why? Because it is at the top of my list as a superfood AND as an adaptogen. Yes, you heard that right! Both! And if you have read my articles about superfoods and adaptogens, then you have to believe that these little berries have to be great for your health.

I finally published my Kindle book titled Making Tinctures: Beyond the Folk Method. I wrote this book to teach people how to use formulas of strength and alcohol percentage in order to make tinctures with more consistent potency than can be accomplished using the folk method. This book is written for all levels of herbalists, from the "newbie" to the Master Herbalist. If you have never made tinctures before or if you only know how to make tinctures using the folk method, this book will show you the step-by-step process to make tinctures using the weight to volume (w/v) method. And if you are the Master Herbalist who already uses the w/v method, but have not found the formulas you need, this book will give you 46 formulas, as well as information on how to find more. The equations needed to calculate the amount of ingredients required to make the tinctures are also explained. One chapter describes how you can use the equations to create a spreadsheet to automate the calculations. This is the book I needed when I first started making tinctures to sell at my shop. Since I could not find one concise comprehensive book like this, I had to figure all this out for myself. So now I share it, so that you don't have to figure it all out.
