Rachel Eash says she has long been intrigued with the idea of homemade soap making, and always thought that she would like to try it sometime. But the lye part of it made her nervous. She read various books on soapmaking and one author wrote “the hardest part is to actually work up enough nerve to do it!” That, she says, was the push she needed, and she has been pleased with the support she has had from her husband, Floyd. On her first try she infused chickweed in olive oil, made her soap and it turned out great! It was very moisturizing. She shared some of it with some friends and they were impressed, and she was hooked. Rachael tries to keep it all natural, including the coloring. She can save a lot of money by doing this, and her family has a really good and natural soap to use with no bad things in it. Join Rachael and her friend to be inspired by healthy soap making.

Life may not always bring us the things we wish it would, but we can take the things it brings and use them for our good – author unknown
Such is the story for Mary Miller who was born and raised in the hills of Holmes County, Ohio, and now lives with her husband Nelson Miller in Shipshewana, Indiana. Her first husband, Danny, had cystic fibrosis, for which there is no known cure. But it was his condition that first gave Mary the incentive to learn all that she could from the natural world around her and at her fingertips, so to speak, that might help to improve his health. Her quest quite naturally led her to the world of herbs, and it is from that world that she will be sharing with you the things she learned – raising harvesting and drying your own herbs and making tinctures and salves. Take this seminar to learn more about connecting with the soils around you, whether you live on a farm of many acres or a small plot with a garden, or just have a few flower beds. Or if you prefer to buy herbs already harvested, she has some ideas and resources for that as well. Mary will be talking about using herbs in a cost-effective way, both as prevention to ill health, or to treat it when needed. ✸
