make your place

A useful and beautiful book, Make Your Place—Affordable Sustainable Nesting Skills by Raleigh Briggs is a nice little handwritten and hand drawn book about making natural first aid supplies, cleaning supplies, and how to garden. It includes info on what plants help with what and how to make them into tinctures, salves, etc. and also shares helpful, accurate info on natural cleaning.

The section on first aid is really wonderful. Information on what plants help with what is sometimes elusive, and to have it right next to the information on what to do with them and how to make a lasting substance for your first aid kit like a salve or tincture is really ideal.

Also the natural cleaning section is very comprehensive and simple. Anyone can clean with these simple things like vinegar, baking soda, castille soap, etc.

I knew a lot of these things already but she has added lots of new information I didn’t know, is a delight to read plus I really love having it all in one handy place in a book that is the perfect size!

While we’re at it, the buyolympia.com website has LOTS of great books and other items. Check it out!
