I am so thankful that we have the freedom to treat our own illnesses, and sicknesses if we please/choose to!  Using herbs (the plants God gave us) is very important to me and it's exciting to see the benefits.

We of course used herbs when Heidi had cancer and were so thankful for her healing, but through the years I am learning there are SOOOO many more varieties that can benefit even more.

This last year we learned the benefits of red clover tops, we make it as a tea and when we get sick we start drinking it, that with some rest, we come around without using antibiotics. But, the owner of Queen of Trees has shared with me some herbs (that she sells in her shop) that I can add to the red clover to make it even more potent!!!

Last week I was looking on Etsy for some herbs for arthritis, and and sleep aid for my grandmother who suffers dearly....and that is when I found Queen of Trees.  I sent her a few questions and she was so informative, helpful and kind.  I had received such good reception from her that I sent a few more questions of which she answered so nicely without seeming overwhelming to me.

I settled on an order with a few things for my grandmother, mother, and our family. And cannot wait to start using everything, not to mention I have several items I still want to get.

You can visit her shop: I know she will be happy to answer any questions you may have!

One purchase I am so thrilled about is her Herbal Penicillin Syrup!  You can read more about here.

Here is some info from her site about one of the herbs used in the syrup

"**Usnea (Usnea barbata): (Anti-bacterial, Antibiotic, Anti-fungal, Anti-viral, Astringent, Diuretic, Parasiticide, Tonic, Tuberculostaic.) The name “Usnea” may have originated at the time of the Arabian school of medicine and pharmacy. Usnea is used both internally and externally for fungus infections and for viral and bacterial infections. An excellent anti-biotic and anti-fungal. Used for the treatment of pneumonia, tuberculosis, lupus, internal infections, strep, staph, Trichomonas, and other infected wounds. May be superior to the drug Flagyl (metronidazole). Better then Penicillin. "

The real exciting part for me is the kiddos don't mind the flavor, which is a HUGE plus for us Mommies!!!  And I love knowing I am helping in healing their bodies without chemicals and medications that will just bring them down.

As she says in her shop:

"Remember, Herbs Work... Love Your Body-Love Your Life.."

Oh yes and before I forget, if you have children don't forget to check out her Chidren's section in her store.

We LOVE to give our children a cup of chamomile before bed at night, we make it about an hour before bed  and it really helps to calm and relax them for bed.  QOT has it in a convenient tincture found here.

But it's not just for the kiddos, hubby and I love to drink it before bed as well, really calms the nerves for a peaceful evening and night!!!
