To be able to treat ourselves with pure natural items that i have grown goes beyond anything i thought i could ever do.

  95. Samantha V. says:

    What a wonderful set of Medical Herb books you have, I’ve used herbs for various things, they are just so wonderful and have so many benefits if you do a little research first.

  133. Julie Gabriel says:

    I’ve always been intrigued by herbs, and this site has gotten me to finally try planting them in my own garden! I think that this library would be an absolute must for anyone who wants to learn about and work with herbs. Although I’ve had limited success (flooding out, 3 years in a row!!) I can’t wait for the day that I can make my own teas, salves, or just simply enjoy them in foods, fresh as can be! Thank you for being such an inspiration!

  134. I have been learning about natural remedies for many years and when I first started there was no such thing as a pc or the internet, so I would go to the library and bring home herb books. Then I sat down and wrote out by hand the things I wanted to remember. Now, being able to go to your website is so-o-o-o much easier!

  135. I love your ideas, insights, and resources. Thanks for sharing your material with the rest of us!

  136. Katrina Baker says:

    I want to win this so much! I want all the books- esp about growing my own!

  137. Thank you so much for sharing all of these great titles with us. I’d like to read every one!! I have one herbal medicine book for children (about 20 yrs old) that I was just referencing last night since my son is under the weather. I would love to have a better collection and to start my own medicine cabinet of safe herbal options. This library would really help me to do so, and to share the wealth of information with my herbally minded friends as well!

  138. I’d love to have all of these but Rosemary Gladstar’s Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health: 175 Teas, Tonics, Oils, Salves, Tinctures, and Other Natural Remedies for the Entire Family is my fav!!!

  139. I love the focus on the antiviral herbs in that book list above – this is a great need, and one that isn’t often understood, especially when it comes to dosages. Also, I love Rosemary Gladstar, and have her Women’s health book, but not the one above.

    Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

  140. Herbal Antivirals: Natural Remedies for Emerging & Resistant Viral Infections is my favorite book. I’m interested in natural remedies rather than gathering prescription from doctors.

  141. Wow! All of these books look fantastic, but I’m really excited about Herbal Antivirals and Herbal Antibiotics! As someone who gets sinus infections ALL THE TIME I would love to have a better natural resource to get rid of them! Thanks!

  143. There is SO MUCH about herbs I never knew! I’m most excited because this is an extra layer of motivation (beyond just growing herbs for food) to get started growing.

  144. Amazing selection and tough to choose a favorite. Encyclopedia and Herbal antibiotics. It would be so handy and fantastic to have these books on hand. I’m working on expanding my small herb garden and making a lot of my own lotions and balms so this is just fabulous!

  145. The home manual sounds really interesting.

  146. This is a fantastic collection of medicinal books. I have been collecting a similar list on my amazon wish list for awhile, but haven’t found the extra funds for them. ◾Rosemary Gladstar’s Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health: 175 Teas, Tonics, Oils, Salves, Tinctures, and Other Natural Remedies for the Entire Family is especially wonderful. Winning this would be grand!

  147. They all look great but I’m most interested in Rosemary Gladstar’s book, since I’ve heard a lot about her.

  148. LoriAnne in Oregon says:

    What a wonderful giveaway! I lust to have all of the books so picking a favorite is difficult. But Rosemary Gladstar’s looks intriguing! I love recipes. The garden and growing books always interest me since I am so green thumb challenged. The Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine, though, looks to be a wonderful reference and resource. I just need them all!!

  149. Danielle Williams says:

    What a fabulous collection of resources. Thank you for all you do.

  150. Susette Zetterman says:

    This looks like an awesome collection of books! I have been trying to go all natural with everything but it’s hard to learn about herbs. There’s lots of posts and information about this herb and that herb are good for this and that, but it never tells you how to take the herbs, or how to prepare them. I think this. Ole toon of books would finally answer all this questions from growing to preparing, and honestly, I still prefer to have my books in paper form, just feels easier for me than all these electronic books! Love you site!

  151. Gina Boulanger says:

    Wow! What a great list! Ice only been at this for about a year so any of these books would be very helpful in learning about herbal medicine. Thanks for this amazing giveaway!

  152. Thank you for all that you do!! I red my newsletters an your facebook posts over and over!

  153. Oh man, what a great giveaway! All of these look amazing, but in particular I would love them for advice on how to grow in our limited space and more salve/rub recipes!

  154. Pami Taylor says:

    They are all wonderful … what an awesome collection of information about herbs!!!

  155. Love your site. I forward many articles to friends. Looking forward to starting my herb garden right this year.

  156. Several of these have been on my Amazon wish list. This is a great collection!

    • I would love to learn more about herbs and using them for medicinal purposes. I make products for my family based on recipes like yours but I don’t fully understand which herbs to use for what. This library would an excellent resource! I think the Herbal Antivirals and Antibiotics would be very interesting.

  157. After your comment to Carol about Rosemary’s book being the one that really got your going, win or lose, I am going to get that book! I have the medicine makers book-gets to the heart of 25-30 herbs so you learn a lot about them.

    Thank you for this opportunity!

  158. Chrysta Barfield says:

    This set looks amazing! A great reference to help care for my family naturally!

  159. Awesome!!

  160. You can never have to many great books

  161. My one and only resolution this year is to get an herb garden going and learn more about them. The set of books would be a wonderful help for that goal.

  162. What a generous giveaway! Top on my to-do list this year and a medicinal herb garden and a salad garden. Recently took a square foot & raised bed gardening class at my local folk school (Adirondack Folk School and so excited to get started!

  163. Crystal Cook says:

    I have been learning all I can about herbs and natural healing, and would love to learn all that I can!

  164. I would love to receive this library as I am currently in school to earn my associates of applied science in alternative medicine and these books would help with my herbal studies. Also, this topic is a personal interest of mine so any new information I can get is greatly appreciated

  165. Great site. Great info. Can’t wait to start changing my lifestyle and that of my family!

  166. Christopher Burrell says:

    I would love to have these books, especially since I don’t take conventional medicine.

  167. Mary Pearce says:

    A treasure trove of information!

  168. Cynthia Hutchinson says:

    Thank you

  169. Sounds Exciting!

  170. I love Frugally Sustainable! So many wonderful ideas, recipes, and advice. I share it with others often and try to incorporate as many of the recipes etc in my personal life. Thanks for your help in making me and my family healthier 🙂

  171. Heather in Oregon says:

    This is a very exciting giveaway. Some of those have been on my list for ages.

  172. Jody Carr says:

    I love the idea of being able to have all the information at my fingertips that I would need to start a backyard herb garden! Thank you for this oppertunity!

  173. you have a great website and great recipes/tips. You have inspired me to start my own herbal garden. I am just starting and so excited to be able to heal my family without having to use drugs and conventional medicine. It all started with my husband having a tooth ache. He tried every medicine you could buy including pain killers etc…we googled natural alternatives and garlic came up as one. He crushed a clove and applied it directly to his painful tooth and it the pain immediately subsided. That’s when we just looked at each other and realized that something is not quite right. We now use herbal/natural alternatives first!!!!!!! anyway, I would love to own these books and thank you for letting us get a chance to win the giveaway.

  174. Great resource library!

  175. Great giveaway! I am very interested in the Hands-On Healing Remedies book.

  176. SO many amazing books. Hands On Healing Remedies intrigues me the most. Because of Andrea, I have started a serious obsession and love affair with remedies and salves, etc. I seem to go to sleep and think about what I am going to start steeping next! I’ve got it bad!

    If I don’t win, I will start collecting these books and add them to my library. Thank you for this chance!

  177. Marcia Lee says:

    I would like to begin making my own herbal remedies. The book that I think could help me most is “Your Backyard Herb Garden: A Gardener’s Guide to Growing Over 50 Herbs Plus How to Use Them in Cooking, Crafts, Companion Planting and More.

  178. Over the last year I have tried to eliminate store bought beauty & cleaning products, as well as I have began using essential oils on a daily basis. These books would help me learn how to make even more products that will benefit my family.

  179. Excellent choices, Andrea! I completed a class in basic herbalism at my local community center last summer and am slowly building my reference library. This collection provides a great overview. I’m most excited about the manuals by James Green and Richo Cech, but any one of these titles would be a great addition! Thanks!

  180. I really believe in the healing and health properties of what God gives us. That’s what is so exciting about always learning more about homeopathy. My favorite book was Your Backyard Herb Garden. I’ve been trying to grow herbs in my window sill and they won’t grow. lol

  181. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win this magnificent collection of books!

  182. This is a wonderful compilation of books! I super excited

  183. I’m more than interested since this is the spring I plan to start growing and using herbs in all kinds of ways – medicinal, cooking, creams and lotions etc.

  184. Diana Allbrett says:

    I love this collection of books and it inspires me to get off my rear and start using great resources like these to treat my families ailments!
    Thank you!

  185. I scour the web (including your site) for projects, remedies, and recipes all the time. It’s time consuming and I don’t always find The Best solution. Having these resources right in my home would be such a wonderful tool for me – time saver and quality assurance. Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health and Rosemary Gladster in general are what excite me the most! Thanks for hosting!

  186. Love your website and tips, and love that if I am not up to making new things, I can order from your site.

  187. Thank you for the chance to win these books. I would seriously love them all!

  188. These books look like they would be a wealth of knowledge! Love your website….

  189. This looks like a great library. I would be so excited to read all of them, but Herbal Antibiotics/Antivirals really stand out to me!

  190. I borrowed Hands On Healing Remedies from the library and loved it! It would be wonderful to own any of these books–all of them would be a windfall!

  191. I already have Gladstar’s book, which is a great book on the use of (but not growing) herbs and an approach to holistic health. If I win this, I can think of several people who would appreciate that particular book. I grow a lot of different herbs, both cullinary and medicinal, and I would definitely put these resources to good use! Thanks for the great blog! I don’t subscribe to very many, but yours in one I’ve hung on to when I’ve reduced my email box of others.

  192. Thank you for your blog and the information you publish. There’s so much out there to sift through. Following you (along reading and researching) has helped me learn how to discern between valuable and questionable advice from others. This looks to be a great giveaway. I am concerned, as everyone should be, about the inevitable mutation of viruses and bacteria beyond the tools of traditional medicine (and most definitely because of them!) We’re leaning more and more to natural treatments. I feel it’s important to know what to do before we are in crisis. Thank you for yet another great giveaway!

    • I forgot to say that most of these books excite me. I guess, if I had to choose, I’d pick Herbal Antivirals since that’s my weakest topic (other than growing and using fresh herbs as medicine. Not quite ready for that since I have a black thumb that is being practiced into brown)

  193. Brandy Bradford says:

    My busy life kept me from following through many of the clean living things are start out doing in my younger years. Watching my mom die of cancer at 63 reminded me that my kids deserve to have me around for a long time, clean living will help me accomplish that.

  194. Sarah Reckards says:

    I love your site, and this giveaway is exciting! I love herbal remedies and I’m a DIYer at heart. Love Richo Cech and his seed company, Horizon Herbs, is amazing! Definitely would be stoked to get a copy of his book, and all the others too! You can never stop learning about the wealth of herbs. It is a never-ending well of information and goodness! Thanks, Andrea!

  195. Heidi Crouch says:

    I would absolutely love this collection! Thank you for educating us and for providing all the products in your Etsy shop. Love them!!! You’re such an inspiration!

  196. These all look amazing! I’m working on my master herbalist certificate right now, so I’m trying to collect all the quality herb books I can 🙂

  197. I am excited about this because I want to start becoming more educated in alternative forms of healing for my family. These books would be a wonderful addition! Thank You.

  198. I would love to be able to grow, harvest and make my family’s medicine! Would be amazing to have such a great collection of resources, especially hardbound in my library!

  199. I have recently started an herbal certification course, to increase my knowledge of herbal medicine making. Each of these books would be a great addition to my library, but my favorite would be anything by Rosemary Gladstar — so Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health, gets my #1 vote! Thank you for offering this giveaway and for posting great info.

  200. This is a super giveaway! I have been checking out all of these at the library over and over again. It would be fantastic to have my own set!

  201. GRACE WORTH says:

    I am only beginning to understand the healing powers of back yard herbs and herb growing. I have several Kindle books on herbs and herb healing altho I believe that print copies are better. I think the book “Your Backyard Herb Garden: A Gardener’s Guide to Growing Over 50 Herbs Plus How to Use Them in Cooking, Crafts, Companion Planting and More” would be an excellent read and asset to my library.

  202. Our family of 6 is on our second year of gardening and living a more pure life. The books of recipes and herbal remedies interest me the most.

  203. ALL of the books look good, and I would LOVE to win this contest. These books would complete any individuals library for sure!

  204. Have grown herbs for years for culinary uses. Am now learning about medicinals and how to grow. Planted comfrey, lemon balm and nettles last year and hope to add more this year!

  205. Laurie Ann says:

    I look forward to each and every post from Frugally Sustainable. Thank You For Sharing Your Ideas, Recipes, Remedies and Great Giveaways!

  206. Medicinal Herbs is my new current passion. I got my first book on this subject this Christmas. It would be great to add these other books to this one.

  207. Thank you for offering such a fantastic giveaway! I’m really intrigued to read “Your Backyard Herb Garden”. We just recently moved into a new house with a lot of space to garden and aside from my veggies, I’m REALLY looking forward to growing herbs this year to. I’m a massage therapist and love learning new remedies to use with my clients. Learning to grow my own will only be even more rewarding. Thanks again!

  208. These look to be great books. I have been wanting to learn and read about herbs for years. I hope to start an herb garden this year.

  209. Would love to win this, thanks!

  210. All of the books I want and I’m not sure I can pick a favorite however I’m very interested in:
    Hands-On Healing Remedies: 150 Recipes for Herbal Balms, Salves, Oils, Liniments & Other Topical Therapies.

    Thanks so much for the list to add to my wishlist.

  211. Would love to win this! Thank you so much!

  212. Love your website and products! Thanks for all you do, this is great!

  213. I am teaching myself about herbology and wild edibles. I find it very exciting to learn about plants that can heal instead of relying on Pharma.

  214. 10 or so years ago I was in a bad place in my life and lost all of my herbal health and healing books.All of them along with all of my other books(I had about a thousand books in total) so this would be an excellent way to add to my fledgling herbal book collection.Thanks for having a giveaway for something so useful.

  215. I have 2 of these…. (Homegrown Herbs and Herbal Antibiotics) and I like them. The others look very interesting as well! Herbs are very unique and interesting, I love learning about them!

  216. I recently got married and moved to a tiny apartment in San Francisco. I’m currently unable to find a job, and I would love to start growing herbs and being sustainable with my time, but I’m not sure how I can do that in a little bitty one-bedroom apartment! Any helpful thoughts?

  217. I would love to have these. I want to learn more about herbs and there healing properties.

  218. Deitra Brunner says:

    I am too excited about entering into this contest because just yesterday, I entered several of these books on my Amazon and personal wish list because I so want to begin a herb and vegetable garden so that I can more readily prepare homemade medicines and eat more healthy.

  219. What a lovely idea…

  220. So many great resources here! This would be so helpful in taking care of my family 🙂

  221. While all the books on the list interest me, I am especially interested in the Anti-Viral Remedies. I really feel that we need this information because the overuse of antibiotics has created more problems. I think this will add to body of knowledge in my field of interest.

  222. I love your site! I have learned so much. Thank-you

  223. Thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to get started reading and learning what I’m so passionate about.

  224. These are really great books. I already have Rosemary Gladstar’s book and the others are on my wishlist at Amazon. I love Rosemary’s book, so its my favorite on the list.

  225. All of the books look great, but I think Rosemary Gladstar’s book of Herbal Recipes sounds the best – at least to me. I have grown some herbs before, but I never really know what to do with them! I really need some kind of instruction and recipe right in front of me, so that I can bookmark it and refer to it when needed. I am old fashioned in that I really, really like books. Kindle is okay for just light reading, but when I am researching, I like a good old tried and true paper book. I would love to win this packet because I could share with my sister and my two daughters-in-law, as we have all wondered about natural medicines.

  226. Thank you for holding this give a way! These are all exceptional books!!

  227. Loretta Rendon says:

    I love herbs use them daily. I have $5 bucks to my name bearly scraping by, but still will keep positive. I would luv these books for my library and if I win I will cherish them since I can not afford to buy. Loretta.

  228. This is an amazing library of books, I’d love to learn more about growing herbs and using them too!

  229. I have finally moved to the country, and have just FINALLY achieved my dream of starting an Herbal Garden, from which I can provide healthy alternatives for myself and my family, but also to earn an income. In the past, I just had a small herbal garden for my own use. I am finally able to grow in abundance, and I truly LOVE all the resources that Frugally Sustainable provides. I would love to own ANY and ALL of the listed books. All would make a great contribution to my home library of research materials, for my own knowledge, and also to help my future customers. THANK YOU!!

  230. We’re using herbs from the summer to season our food. It was our first go at a lil garden and I’m looking forward to growing and using more herbs this coming season! 🙂

  231. I love the thought of using natural products to treat sickness and physical ailments. My mom is an herbalist but lives several hours away, and i love that I could start learning some of these amazing things while at home!

  232. I love your website and I use a lot of your remedies and recipes. I would love to get my hands on all of these books! I have super sensitive skin and I have started making some lotions and things myself. I can usually find some herbal medicine books at the thrift store but I’m always looking to expand and create!

  233. Thanks for sharing some great herbal medicine resources! It always great to know what others are reading. 🙂

  234. I love your website! I’m just getting started using herbal remedies and natural cleaning products and I frequently use your website as a reference. I chose Rosemary Gladstar’s book as the first for my home library and would love to be able to add the others. My goal this summer is to grow, use, and dry some of my own herbs.

  235. Isara Serene says:

    I have one herb book that I won on my birthday over 20 years ago! I have cherished it! … it would be nice to expand my horizons. I am always amazed at your graciousness in sharing wisdom. It truly is wisdom and please know that we are passing it on (and growing it!). I am now soap-making … wonderfully fun and healing endeavor! Question, if you get a moment … We opt for no flu shots (which means I must mask at work) and take Elderberry tincture religiously. Can I reuse the dried elderberries? Can I refill the jar with vodka when it is half full like you do Vanilla? I have looked and looked for this answer to no avail.

  236. `

  237. Susan Broughton says:

    My favorite is the Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine: The Definitive Home Reference Guide to 550 Key Herbs with all their Uses as Remedies for Common Ailments. I am excited about learning how to use herbs to treat minor health problems with herbs instead of so much medicine.

  238. I am determined to begin an herb garden this year. So… I need to read up on what plants do best together, which ones need sun or shade or sandy soil, or extra water. Thanks so much for providing a great list of resources.

  239. An excellent compilation to put together and utilize, thank you!!

  240. Patricia Havener says:

    What a wonderful gift! Thank you…even if I don’t win I appreciate all the resources.

  241. I love researching and using herbs for daily needs as well as for the big needs! I’ve repeatably taken some of these books out at my library, but would love to have them for my own personal library!! Love keeping up with Frugally Sustainable! Keep up the good work Andrea!

  242. April Ellis says:

    Oh my gosh!! How I would LOVE to win this!! I plan on going to school to become an herbalist but 2 young kids and finances have me waiting for a bit. This would help kickstart my goal and achieve it so much sooner! Thank you for doing something so wonderful fo all of us!!

  243. Diane Knickerbocker says:

    I just soak this stuff up. Love learning how to care for myself and family without depending on the pharmacy.

  244. Jessica A. says:

    I just started learning about using herbs and I’m excited! I love all the books 🙂 thanks for sharing all the research you have done!

  245. Wow! I would love any of these! Thanks for the giveaway.

  246. hi love the site – why I would like to win this complete library – simple – is then I would have the answer to so many questions, in my bookcase, no more Google and links, just open the book and the information there.

  247. Debi Deason says:

    I am a retired registered nurse who is very interested in herbal medicine. I would love to have the books on herbal antibiotics, antivirals, or any of the how-to books on herbal medicine.

  248. Your website literally changed the way my family lives. I stumbled across your blog by accident about a year or so ago and was fascinated that I could make my own detangling spray for my daughters hair. After that, I was hooked! I have learned so much over the past year…THANK YOU!

  249. Fernanda Mehta says:

    Thank you for this giveaway – all the books sound very interesting!!

  250. these books rock! I have one or two of them and several of the rest on my wish list! 🙂 thanks for the giveaway!

  251. Robin Hawkins says:

    What a great collection to have! I have been scouring yard sales & thrift stores whenever I get a chance to pick up books on herbs, essential oils & such, trying to increase my knowledge & preparedness. Thanks for the opportunity!

  252. ■Your Backyard Herb Garden: A Gardener’s Guide to Growing Over 50 Herbs Plus How to Use Them in Cooking, Crafts, Companion Planting and More is the book that interests me the most because I would love to learn how to grow my own herb garden. And then actually use it! lol

  253. What a great selection of herbal remedy books. We do all homeopathic/herbal health in our home – great books to add to our library! Thanks for the opportunity.

  254. Sounds like a great bundle to win! Seems like there are lots if issues with the rafflecopter widget though. It kept making me log off and I tried to share the giveaway but it wouldn’t cooperate… :/

  256. This would make a great addition to my library

  258. I love herbal books! I have a lot of reference books, but not any that are in this collection. 🙂

  259. What a great giveaway! Thanks for offering it 🙂

  260. Lori Lockwood says:

    They all are my favs! Every single one would be so useful!

  261. I have a couple of these already, and they’re great books that I’d gladly share.The rest look just as great, The Herbal Medicine Makers Handbook… That one has been on my wish list for a while.

  262. Looks interesting.

  263. rayraycartucci says:

    I just started getting into natural remedies,and herbal medicines so these books would be useful to me.Ever since my son was born with health issues and autism I have made sure everything that goes into his system is pure,healthy and herbal

  264. Danette Leuck says:

    I love your site. My son has always been into natural medicines and (if we can swing the tuition) he will go to Bastry to get his ND. I believe for almost every illness out there, we have a natural way to handle it. Thanks for all you do

  265. This is an amazing collection and winning these books would be a dream come true.

  266. Llyn McClure says:

    Thank you for the opportunity to win such a useful collection.
    They would definitely improve my herbal practice by significantly expanding my reference material.

  267. Been researching and studying herbs for a few months now. These books would definitely be a boon!

  268. Jen Kreuder says:

    I would love to win these e-books, since I am just getting started on my journey with natural living!

  269. The Herbal Antivirals book would be wonderful. I had MRSA and used tea tree oil to heal it when the prescription meds didn’t work. I am always looking for more of this type of information.

  270. Thank you for the list. I am trying so hard to get away from the American drug culture but the information out there is overwhelming. Your list gives me a great place to start. Especially considering you have the lifestyle that I am aspiring towards.

  271. Tracy Richardson says:

    I cannot tell you how much I want to learn about herbal/natural medicine. There is not a school in my area and I cannot afford to do any online colleges. Having this many books to study from would be A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! I particular like the Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine. It looks like it offers a lot of information.

  272. what an awsome idea. thank you so much for doing this. someone will be very happy! herbalism is my passion and there are so many books out there that i would love to have. thank you again for all you do.

  273. Learning to take care of my family. I love them all. I love Rosemary Gladstar books.

  275. Great selection of books. I’ve read a few from the library but would love to have my own copies. Thanks for the opportunity.

  276. I would love to have these books!!! Herbal Antibiotics sounds the most interesting.

  277. I love your blog and your products! And the books seem very interesting 🙂

  278. Would love to win this!

  279. I’ve been reading your blog for a long time and it has inspired me to become more frugal and sustainable. I’m now interested in natural medicine and plan to get certified. Thank you for an amazing start to a new life!

  280. I have been trying to decide what herbal books to purchase to add to my library as I learn more about them. A few of the books I’ve been looking at are in this set!

    Just getting started with herbal meds and would be ecstatic to win! Love your fb posts.

  285. I would love to learn more about herbal medicine and how to make remedies.

  286. Deric Garcia says:

    My wife is always talking about Frugally a Sustainable and what she has read and is going to try next. Shes constantly looking for home remedies/recipes and I know she would be thrilled to win these books. I think she would be most interested in “Hands-On Healing Remedies: 150 Recipes for Herbal Balms, Salves, Oils, Liniments & Other Topical Therapies”.

  287. What a great giveaway!! All these books seem great to learn about herbal medicine.

  288. I’ve never had much luck growing herbs – except the mint that is all-pervasive in my back yard! I’m sure I’d give it another try (or two or three) if I had all these resources at my disposal!

  289. I LOVE herbs and mixing my own concoctions. I’ve been building my herbal library slowly over the last couple of years, and even looked at your suggestions just recently to add more. I’d LOVE LOVE LOVE to build it more, as I’m looking to continue my self education into herbs and their effects on bacteria and viruses. Thank you for this giveaway!

  290. I’m very excited about this entire collection. I am really interested in “The Medicinal Herb Grower, Vol. 1” and “The Herbal Medicine-Maker’s Handbook: A Home Manual.” I think any of these books really puts health care back in the hands of the people. There is a place for big medicine, but I am really excited about this entire collection and being armed with more information!

  291. I’m just starting to learn about herbal remedies and am also interested in growing my own herbs. These books would be a great help.

  292. I’ve recently started growing a few medicinal herbs and making my own medicines, but I’d really like to learn more! Thanks for doing this giveaway. I think all the books look amazing, but I think the Backyard book looks great for a beginner like me!

  293. I am just starting to learn about herbs for healing. I can’t wait to learn more and this is an amazing collection. My sons have autism and I have a severe genetic condition that makes me chemically sensitive. Learning alternative treatments are so very important to us.


  294. This past year I grew a few more herbs besides the typical “kitchen herbs.” I dried mint leaves and have been using them this winter. I hope to just learn more and more.
    The Vibrant Health book is on my Amazon wishlist already – Vintage Amanda said it was a top book for herbal use.

  295. Love all your tips for making our own medicinals! I am getting ready to add to my herb garden and plant my food garden this spring – really want to continue to learn about natural versions of antibiotics and antiviral treatments in the event of emergencies or resistant strains.

  296. stephanie says:

    I love making my own products and would love to learn more about growing my own herbs. Thank you for all your great recipes and advice.

  321. I have learned so much from your web site. It’s such a valuable resource for me. Thank you!

  322. Hello Andrea
    I’ve been following your blog for about 2 years now and I find it to be educating and inspiring in many ways. I have purchased many of the books you’ve suggested in previous posts to add to my own knowledge/collection. I must thank you for sharing your resources as well as your brilliant ideas! I am going at my own pace (experimenting with herbs, homemade cosmetics and Real Food) and I couldn’t have started down this road without your expertise and advice. I am looking forward to winning any or all of these books as they are not yet in my medicinal herb library. You have definitely affected positive change in my life, and even if I don’t win these books, I have added them to my personal Amazon wish list for future purchases. Thanks again for sharing and caring so much. 🙂

  323. I love all the books. I make all my own salves, tinctures, teas, cleaning products, health & beauty, etc. I just moved out to the country working on becoming self sustainable. I am so excited about my heirloom garden this year! TY TY TY

  324. I want to learn more about herbal remedies, since “modern” medicine isn’t healing our illnesses and chronic ailments. Herbal seems the way to go. I have a few indoor herbs, but would love to learn how to grow so many more! I think any book with herbal remedies would be great!

  325. Wow! What a wonderful giveaway. I love using and learning about herbal products. Andrea, you have such informative articles and instructions. Thank you!

  326. Lara Baumann says:

    It would nice to have so I can start making my own stuff. I think my favorite is the herbal remedies.

  327. What a great giveaway!

  328. I am an amateur herbalist and would be excited to have these books to learn from. I am most interested in books about growing, such as Homegrown Herbs: A Complete Guide to Growing, Using, and Enjoying More than 100 Herbs.

  329. Mary Howe says:

    If I won these books , they would all be my favorite.

  330. I Have been incorporating more herbs into my cooking. I would love to learn more in the medicinal side.

  331. Dawn Lawien says:

    I’m almost at my one year mark for converting my cleaning and beauty supplies to all “green.” Now I just need to convince my teen daughters to do the same. Hands On Healing Remedies would likely be my favorite as I have felt for years that medicines can be as harmful as they do good. A natural remedy without adding more chemicals to my body is the way to go. Books aside, I really appreciate that you offer both the “how to” make something as well as offer it at your Etsy store. Very generous of you to give away these books.

  332. I love creating homemade products with all natural ingredients. I will enjoy Hands on healing the most (I think)!

  333. Just want you to know that you’ve been such an inspiration in my herbal/sustainable journey. I love the way you share recipes, but also offer the finished product in your store. I’ve just finished my first herbal infusions in my windowsills and I am now making and using my salves! I’m so excited to expand my herb garden this year, so The backyard Herb garden looks like it’ll help me greatly, but all the books look wonderful! Your soap recipes are next on my list! Many, many thanks, Tracy

  334. This is quite a generous giveaway. Thanks for sharing your expertise and products. The dog flea products works for all our dogs. And your tooth powder is wonderful.

  335. I would love to check out the Encyclopedia and the Herbal Antibiotics. I try to treat all disorders using only herbs and essential oils. I only go to pharmaceuticals as a last resort.

  336. Elaine Sumner Rumsey says:

    I am just beginning to learn about and use essential oils and how to use them to keep me healthy and help if I do get sick. “Hands-On Healing Remedies” caught my eye and that is my favorite! 🙂 I started a little herb garden last year and want to learn more about growing and making the best use of all the herbs I can grow.

  337. Great selection & giveaway! Love your emails, very informative!

  338. These look like wonderful resources to have on the shelf. I love the idea of having all this info at my fingertips.

  339. I love Home Grown Herbs and anything Rosemary Gladstar! Thanks for the other suggestions I will be adding those to my wish list. I just need to get another bookshelf to house all these books I have been collecting.

  340. S.L. Meyer says:

    These look like wonderful resources to add to my growing library of self care

  341. What a fabulous giveaway! These books sure do offer a wealth of knowledge! May favorite one so far seems to be the Hands on Healing Remedies. Thank you!

  342. Mona S Casselman says:

    It is hard to choose a single favorite from this marvelous collection! I think I lean toward The Herbal Medicine Maker Handbook as first choice altho the Antiviral?
    /antibiotic duo would be excellent. Of course, Rosemary Gladstar is always worth reading.
    But then, the Encyclopedia…
    Decisions, decisions!!
    Thanks for this lovely opportunity to start my day with drooling on the keyboard and coveting more books!!

  343. I am excited, even if I don’t win, to check out a few more of these books. Thank you for the chance!

  344. Martha DeChant says:

    I love this giveaway! I make a few essential oil blends that I’ve been using for years. I am unable to take many OTC medications due to my high blood pressure, plus they don’t work for me. I’m excited about the possibility of learning about some new medicines I can make.

  345. I have some of these books in my WishList on Amazon! Hope I win!!!!

  346. They all look great!!! I have decided that I want to try and grow herbs in my house all year round to have them available for cooking and medicine. I’m just starting this homesteading journey, and have a LOT that I want to do, but no knowledge to back it up! Ha! So, these books would be wonderful to get me started in this area!!

  347. i love the thought of making my own medicine with herbs. I think any one of these books would be a big help in that process; however, I have had experience with The Medicine-Maker’s Handbook: A Home Manual and found it to be a very useful book to follow.

  348. I love Rosemary Gladstar, she makes growing and using herbs for medicine so much fun!

  349. I enjoy learning about herbal remedies and medicine. Your website has been a blessing!

  350. Laurlita Johnson says:

    I love your website. Your website has helped me overcome my fear of making my own herbal remedies and healthy cleaners & Beauty products. Thank you! All of the books would help me on my journey of becoming self reliant.

  351. Sharon Lee Lockhart says:

    I am always interested in learning about herbs and medicines and with this whole library I could have my own library and learn all I need to know about growing and wildcrafting herbs.

  352. All of these books are so jam packed with such precious information about taking care of yourself, your family and friends. It’s all there…from the how to’s to grow, care for and harvest your herbs right down to tinctures, salves for many ailments that I myself can treat and help with for my family. I have come to the conclusion that many people are moving towards a more sustainable lifestyle. My family definitely is..all starting with the 10 acres of forested property….the dream for this lifestyle for my family and myself is just a clearing an acre, leveling and building a house, green house etc away. Five yrs estimated (fingers crossed). Also, i have read about so many herbs that are becoming extinct due to pesticides as well as mass selling without regrowing from many manufacturers of herbal supplements. I want to learn so I may pass on the lost wealth of information about the world full of awesome herbal goodness to care for ourselves and keep the herbs alive (so to speak). Sorry for the longwindedness..but i have become very passionate with my intentions on learning. Thank you for your awesome site, I have learned so much from you!! Keep up the awesome work and know you are sooooo appreciated for all you do!! Sincerely, from Ontario, Canada. 🙂

  353. This is a FABULOUS collection of herb books!!! What an amazing giveaway!!
    I hope my lucky stars are shining!!!

  354. Dawna Larsen says:

    I am so excited at the prospect of receiving this book collection. I believe that getting back to more natural medicine may be the only answer to healing ourselves and our planet. There are proven cures for cancer out there, that pharmaceutical companies do not want you to know about. They would go broke, if the world were better enlightened!

  355. What a wonderful giveaway!!! I don’t know which book would be my favorite, I don’t have any of them… but I bet I will really like Hands-On Healing Remedies: 150 Recipes for Herbal Balms, Salves, Oils, Liniments & Other Topical Therapies. I love concocting in the kitchen!!!

  356. An apple a day–or an herb–can keep the doctor away FOREVER. Stay out of the Big Pharmaceuticals machine of hooking people on drugs they don’t want and don’t need. Stay healthy the natural way! 😉

  357. All of these books look awesome! I’ve had Herbal Antibiotics on my Wishlist for a long time so that one definitely caught my attention!

  358. This is a wonderful opportunity. I would love to have these. I am working on planting and growing all medicinal plants for my zone.

  359. Love all the good fresh info.

  360. I’ve been collecting a list of herbal medicine books I want to get my hands on. This is exciting! I really like books like The Herbal Medicine-Maker’s Handbook: A Home Manual – just in terms of being practical not too academic.

  361. I would love to have this vast amount of knowledge at my finger tips! Thanks

  362. Gardening is my passion and this library would not only help me, but my family!

  363. this is so awesome for you to give someone the opportunity to win all these books. it is so encouraging to see so many people that love herbs in one place! God bless you and your business!

  364. I would love to enter this herbal book contest but there is no rafflecopter widget. How do I get one?

  365. What a great collection! I am just beginning to grow herbs for medicine making and am very excited to learn more!

  366. Wow, what a wealth of information those books are! Interested in all of them, but the ones on growing your herbs are especially drawing my interest. Thank you for all of the information you share!

  367. I have just started growing herbs and these books look to have lots of great information on how to start using them.

  368. These books all look interesting and I can’t wait to read them all. I love the frugally sustainable newsletters & website.

  369. Cristina Eury says:

    There is SO MUCH knowledge in these amazing books!

  370. They all look great! Hands-On Healing Remedies: 150 Recipes for Herbal Balms, Salves, Oils, Liniments & Other Topical Therapies looks interesting!

  371. I am very excited about these books! I love that there seems to be a wide variety of information and tips regarding various uses for herb, and also instructions on how to use them and where to find them. I think I like The Herbal Medicine-Maker’s Handbook: A Home Manual the most.

  372. Thank you for these amazing titles!! What a great selection you have! I would love to have them all in my library as well!

  373. Thank you, thank you, thank you! just what i needed!

  374. Tinamarie says:

    Thank you for offering this giveaway, Andrea (also my sister’s name!) I have been trying to learn more about formulating my own medicinal teas. They are really making a difference in our improved health.

  375. This would go a long way to starting my library!

  376. I am researching which herbs to plant this year in an area of my yard that we started preparing last year. These books would be great for the information I need to do this! Thanks for the opportunity!

  377. I am fully committed to finding healthy and frugal ways to live. This collection of books look like a great way to keep in on track.

  378. Learning more about growing and using herbs medicinally is one of my new year’s resolutions, so this library would be an excellent way to get started!

  379. I’m subscribed to your feed, and I clicked on all the links. But no matter what computer I’m on the Rafflecopter thing won’t load!!! How do I get entered when it won’t load?? Please help, I would LOVE to win this.

    • Hi Cassie,

      The rafflecopter widget wouldn’t load on my computer either. My computer has windows XP with IE8. My husband loaded Firefox browser onto my computer and the rafflecopter loaded. You may want to see if this will help you too. If you already have Firefox and it doesn’t show, download the latest version. I hope this helps you.

  380. What a fabulous giveaway. There are several books on that list the I’m intrigued by. I really like the idea of the garden book. I just ordered elderberries and calendula and wished that I had a supply from my own garden.

  381. The encyclopedia is my favorite because I want to have a thorough knowledge about all things herbal but I could also use the tips on how to properly grow herbs because I was born with a brown thumb.

  382. I’d love to win these! I’ve been studying herbalism for a few years now and several of them were already on my wishlist. :0)

  383. I would love the Hands on Healing Remedies because I want to be able to make what my family needs.

  384. Shelby Miller says:

    I’ve been slowly taking my family towards a more natural way of living, living more slowly and enjoying what we have. I now want to move on and learn all I can about using herbs for health and healing, etc. This library would be the ultimate!!

  385. I have a couple of these books already, but would love to have and read all of the others!

  386. A lovely giveaway. I’m hoping to continue to expand my knowledge of herbs over the coming years 🙂

  387. Wonderful giveaway Andrea!! Excited about anything to enhance my knowledge… most interested in:
    Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine: The Definitive Home Reference Guide to 550 Key Herbs with all their Uses as Remedies for Common Ailments

  388. I would love to win these to increase my knowledge of herbs

  389. Shannon C. says:

    What a great collection! I’d love the Your Backyard Herb Garden book most I think!

  390. Teresa L. says:

    I have a couple books but these are great. It would be wonderful to win this giveaway. I am new to herbs and have a few tinctures that I have just started. I just love working with herbs.

  391. Love these books, all are interesting… Thanks for the opportunity!

  392. I love your blog! I’m a 17-year-old vegetarian flower child, so I love the idea of healing myself and others with God’s creation. I feel so connected to the earth whenever I eat or use a homegrown plant. Your blog is especially helpful to me because I live (and garden!) in the Chihuahuan desert. It is encouraging to know that someone can succesfully grow a medicinal garden in a desert climate. I already own Rosemary Gladstar’s Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health and I would love to read the rest of the books that you are giving away.

  393. Catherine Simmons says:

    Keeping this list to use as a reference when shopping for books.
    Thank you for this contest – would love to win.

  394. A lot of these books I have on my wishlists, and it made me crazy trying to decide which one was my favorite. This is a great idea for a give-away, thanks for doing something so nice to help us improve our herbals!

  395. at this stage in my life I’m looking for all things natural to keep me healthy. I have always liked,grown and used herbs for cooking.

  396. This is a wonderful collection of books for a healing library. I like all of them, but I am particularly interested in “The Medicinal Herb Grower”. I am slowly building up my herb garden with more and more medicinal herbs, and this looks like a good resource.

  397. This is site a true Godsend! It’s nice to find a site where just about anything I’m looking for.. is here!
    Thanks so much for the time and effort you put into it. It sure helps the people just getting started in these areas. Thanks Again!!

  398. This would add alot of great resources to my herbal library.

  399. Cindy Freeman says:

    This is a great giveaway! I am especially interested in Making Plant Medicine.

  400. Kim Hutcheson says:

    What a wonderful opportunity ! I am VERY interested in the book titled: Herbal Antivirals: Natural Remedies for Emerging & Resistant Viral Infections. It was very difficult to decide as all of the books have alot of great information.

  401. Rosemary Gladstar’s Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health: 175 Teas, Tonics, Oils, Salves, Tinctures, and Other Natural Remedies for the Entire Family is my favorite. Would love to have the access at my fingertips 🙂

  402. I really love this giveaway, but totally dislike HAVING to subscribe to enter it. there is a reason I don’t normally subscribe to blogs even though I read them every day. it’s called email overload!!! just something to consider for your next giveaway.

  403. Hands on Healing looks like it would be a wonderful addition to any collection.

  404. We’re very serious about learning how to use herbal remedies rather than depending upon western medicines. These would make learning much easier.

  405. I’m really excited about the Backyard Herb Garden! We have some herbs that we plant and a desire to have our own “medicinal” garden – that would be a great addition!

  406. I love this blog!

  407. Margaret Touizrar says:

    Great titles for the herb lover.

  408. Tracy Spangler says:

    What most excites me about winning these books, is that while I’ve recently learned quite a bit about essential oils, I don’t know much of anything about using medicinal herbs. I have rare a rare nerve disorder, chronic health issues, and mild cerebral palsy, and I’m exhausted by an unsuccessful brain surgery and constant pain. I’d love to learn how to use medicinal herbs to help me feel better and get away from having to take so many medications each day. Also, on the rare times (thank goodness!) that my two children get sick, I would like to have more knowledge about herbs to help them as well. The book that I would think would be my favorite would be Hands-On Healing Remedies, since I love making salves for ailments that my family or our animals have. Thank you!

  409. I am a Master Gardener and am so interested in growing and using my own herbs. All the books would be wonderful, especially Your Backyard Herb Garden.

  410. Corrie Garrison says:

    Thank you for the wonderful list of new books I need to read. I put them all on my Amazon wish list. I have spent the past two years learning about the boreal forest and I would love to have the magic that makes this new world a healthful apothecary! Thanks a million!

  411. I would love to win all of these books! I love herbs and love learning all I can about each one of them. My favorite of these books is Rosemary Gladstar’s Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health. She has so many different recipes that I would love to make. Thank you so much for this giveaway!

  412. This list is a wonderful resource to have – my fave(s) are Rosemary Gladstar and Tammy Hartung’s books. I am learning to becoming more self sufficient on my journey through life. Thank you so much for sharing such great information on your site!

  413. I have been working on building my own library of holistic health material and this will go a long way to help.

  414. they all look so awesome… since I can’t say all.. guess I’ll start with Making Plant Medicine. What a great give-away to have! Thank you!

  415. being able to just figure out anything I need to know

  416. I would love to learn more about herbs. The Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine seems like an amazing resource.

  417. Michelle White says:

    Cannot wait to get my hands on “The Backyard Herb Gardner”.

  418. Sandra Kennedy says:

    Hard to choose one book, they all sound so useful but I will begin with the Backyard Herb Garden.

  419. Wow! I love the giveaway but thank you as well just for sharing these titles. The ones that I don’t have are now added to my “I have to get ” list! MeLissa from Kansas

  420. Andrea, thank you for this generous giveaway. This is a wonderful opportunity. Love all the books, but especially like the one about Antibiotics.

  421. As I use herbs for ailments prescribed by a naturopathic doctor, it would be very beneficial to be able to grow my own herbs needed for every day ailments that may crop up in my family. I believe the encyclopedia of herbal medicine fascinates me the most !!! And I would love all the books I the giveaway !!!

  422. I love herbs and I love books! Of course I would love to win this drawing!! I have a few great herb books but use the internet for a lot of my information. Having these books in my library would be a dream come true. There is just something about the feel of the pages in a book. There is nothing better than grabbing a cup of coffee or herbal tea and plopping down with a good (especially free) book! Good luck to us all!

  423. Although we have used them for little ailments here and there for years, we are just starting to get into using herbs for much more. Thank you for all the wealth of information you share here and for always sharing recipes, and also ways we can buy a product if we are not able yet to make them ourselves. I really appreciate how truly ‘giving’ that is of you! Our family would grow so much by using the wisdom in these books and loving books as we do they would be welcomed two fold! Thank you for this generous giveaway to all your readers and newcomers!

  424. I am excited about this giveaway because it will aid in becoming more self-sufficient as we have been doing over the years. So thankful for this giveaway, thank you!

  425. Wonderful competition, all the best to all! 🙂

  426. Christina Connors says:

    These books are just what I have been wanting! Good luck to us all!

  427. What a wonderful set of books! They will make some lucky person very happy.

  428. They ALL look awesome! I would be so excited to grow my very small herbal book library! Thank you so much for a great giveaway!

  429. Have I missed the results??

  430. Hi, I was wondering the same as Kelly. Has a winner been chosen/contacted? Thanks!
