Gwen’s Nest Giveaway Week 3

Giveaway Week 3
We’re starting week 3 of a 5 week Relaunch Giveaway party celebrating the new look here at Gwen’s Nest!

Week 1: We celebrated the Trim & Healthy category with two winners getting a copy of the Trim Healthy Mama book.

Week 2: the Rag Coat book was given away to this weeks winner in celebration of the Creative Home section of Gwen’s Nest.

Week 3: the giveaway will celebrate the Natural Remedies section of my site. I’m giving away a copy of Rosemary Gladstar’s book Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner’s Guide: 33 Healing Herbs to Know, Grow, and Use (affiliate link)

I own Rosemary’s Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health, (affiliate link) and I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a great all around recipe book for herbal ideas. It includes everything from nutrition recipes (energy balls candy!) to baby care and even a men’s aftershave. It’s just a fun book! Rosemary is a very experienced herbalist, and her book is beautifully illustrated. I’ve not had a chance to see the Medicinal Herbs book yet, but I thought it would be a really neat way to get to know herbs if you’re new to them. I’ll let the winner choose whether they want Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health or the new Medicinal Herbs book.

If you’ve not yet poked around in the Natural Remedies tab, I invite you to do so. I love to share practical remedies and herbs and how we use them at my house. The series on my health crisis with high blood calcium and our families experience with whooping cough have been popular. I also review books, share favorite products, and post printable recipes for making your own at home remedies.

I also help admin the Herbal Chick Chat group on Facebook, which is a fun way to share experiences and idea.

Whether you’re new to the world of natural remedies, or are very experienced, I hope that you’ll enjoy reading and learning with me!

Hop on in and enter for a chance to win!

    I would love to win a copy of this book. I would really like to start using more herbals. I already use homeopathy and definitely prefer natural methods of healing. I just have no idea where to start…so this book would be great.

  2. rachel says

    I am new to herbs. I haven’t really ever used them. I have just started using essential oils. I would like to know which is better.

  3. Tammy McCann says

    I’ve been interested in herbs and natural remedies for several years. My favorite book is The Herbal Drugstore by Dr. Linda B. White, Steven Foster & the staff of Herbs for Health. Whenever we have a sickness or ailment in our family of 9, I look up the issue in this book and see what herbs are recommended. I’ve used it for colds and flu, coughs, and skin rashes, to name a few. Recently, I’ve become more interested in growing my own herbs. I would love to know more about how to do that!

  4. Sally says

    I’ve heard of this book, but never had opportunity to read it. A book I’ve learned a lot from is Be Your Own Doctor.

  5. Amy Dale says

    I have been following herbal health for some time, but feel like I have so much more to learn! My favorite herbal remedy is echinacea for a cold.

  6. JenZ says

    I’m not a newbie but don’t really have any books that I have been using for reference/learning. I mostly get info from the internet – hopefully from reputable sources – and from friends.

  7. says

    Hmmm~ My favorite herbal creation is lemon/mint tea in the winter time. We grow lemon balm, which smells like heaven, and then dry it out and save it for the cold winter nights that come every year.

    We only grow a handful of herbs but always enjoy learning more.


  8. says

    I’m not exactly a newbie; I’ve been using some herbal teas for years for pregnancy (red rasp. leaf) and illness (echinacea). I haven’t found a book I felt was comprehensive enough to buy, though I have several on my wishlist. (and one is actually Rosemary’s!) :-)

  9. says

    I would love to win this!! Lately, I tend to choose essential oils, more than herbs, but I have been dabbling in making our own herbal remedies for a little over 9 years, and this would be a great addition to my library!! Thanks for the chance :-)

  10. Christine. Bailey says

    Yes I am new to it and enjoy the chat group on Facebook! In fact I got help when my girls had the flu, and was very thankful for the useful info we received!

  11. Kim says

    I am not a newbie but far from an expert. I have no book and could really use one. Most everything I have learned I’ve learned from Gwens chick chat. One of my favorites is fennel for various stomach issues.

  12. Heather Kruse says

    I am not new to herbal remedies, but I am new to trying to do them myself. In the past I have had my brother (a Chinese herbalist) do it for me, but I love to learn and have been branching out on my own- with his guidance if needed of course :)

  13. ella says

    I’m pretty new to herbs, but I love using lavender and peppermint for things around my home and for aromatherapy purposes. I’ve heard great things about this book!

  14. Leah T. says

    I’m not brand new to herbs but have so very much to learn. This book looks wonderful and has been on my wishlist for quite awhile! :)

  15. Wendy Hoffman says

    I would love to win this book for our family. We always try to use natural remedies and herbs when possible. My daughter is studying herbs for her senior year so this would be really helpful for her!

  16. Hannah Skelly says

    I borrowed this book from the library awhile back and loved it… She has beautiful illustrations in it.

    Favorite herbal book… Be your own doctor and any of James Duke’s books!

  17. Carrie Yonce says

    Pick me! Pick me!! We had the stomach bug last week and the flu this week and I DESPERATELY NEED this book for treating my family!!!!

  18. says

    I have been studying about herbs online but would love a book to use as a reference; I’m still a paper-n-pen and book-I-can-hold in my hands kind gal!

    Thanks for offering this fabulous resource; I’ve got the itch to plant some seeds to expand my herb garden this summer. :)

  19. LauraHoosier says

    As a person living with fibromyalgia I am moving more and more to natural ways to treat issues that come up because I’ve become hyper sensitive to prescribed meds. I do a lot of research and would love to add this book to my arsenal!

  20. Joellen says

    I am a newbie to natural health. My current favorite remedy is coconut oil–we use it on burns, diaper rash, psoriasis, as moisturizer, and in cooking, among others.

  21. Christi says

    I love growing herbs, but end up not using most of what I grow simply because I lack ideas and instruction. This looks like a wonderful book and thank you for the opportunity to win it!

  22. TiaStevens says

    I would love to win this book. My son’s bday is next week he will be 14 & he would love it. He loves growing things
