"One of the many things I love about herbs and herbal medicines is the freedom and health independence it provides. Continue to rebel, grow your own medicines, create your own formulas, learn all you can about herbs, which are truly a form a medicine that belongs to We the People."
- Cat, the Herbal Prepper
