Be prepared for what comes your way this winter with an herbal apothecary!
Disinfectant-holics spray their go-to toxic cleaning products on toys, doorknobs, furniture, counters, in bathrooms, and in “sick rooms.”
If you’d prefer to hit the green road, these herbal survival kit recipes are antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal, don’t have to be rinsed off, and all ingredients are pronounceable.
Ehris and Velya will teach you how to make three natural, effective DIY remedies to dropkick a winter bug before it even takes hold (or at least shorten its duration).
Think of each one as a shield, a piece of armor against colds, flu, bacteria, viruses:
Chemical-Free Hand Sanitizer
Nix-the-Vicks Herbal Vapor Rub
Why make an herbal survival kit?
Since time began, plant medicine – the science of using herbs and natural remedies – has been the world’s primary form of promoting heath and treating illness.
You can stay healthy, while everyone else gets sick! Antiviral herbs/ingredients, along with a strong immune system can make all the difference.
Build your wellness herbal apothecary, breeze through winter with your herbal survival kit, and be ready to enjoy spring!

Ehris is a green witch, herbalist, holistic nutritionist, and graduate of the New England School of Homeopathy. Additionally, Ehris is a Flower Essence Therapy practitioner. She became interested in Reiki as a teenager and attained Reiki Master certification at age 17. Ehris is also a certified Ingham Method reflexologist.

Velya Jancz-Urban lives her life by the adage, “there is no growth without change.” Zany and gregarious, she is a teacher, author, former Brazilian dairy farm owner, and herstory unsanitized expert. Moving into a 1770 Connecticut farmhouse ignited Velya’s obsession with the colonial era, and led to her entertainingly-informative presentation, The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife. She has been married to Jim for 38 years and is the mother of two grown children. Velya has a few too many rescue dogs and cats, is happiest with a fresh stack of library books, loves thrift shops, and is passionate about alternative medicine.
