For those of you into self medicating, the BBC are showing you how to grow, harvest and prepare your own herbal remedies.
The show is called Grow Your Own Drugs ( saucy) and features James Wong. He is an ethnobotanist and not, and he was very clear about this, a hippy – despite the bare feet and the beads. Hey far be it from me to stereo type.
Any way the boy mixed up some remedies from flowers and weeds and seemed to know what he was talking about. Moreover he is an all time sweetie even though he is a SCIENTIST and not a hippy. Got a very nice kitchen too. There is book full of recipes to accompany the show..
As you know from my own creamy exploits, making your own cosmetics is a great way to cut down dramatically on your plastic – making your own remedies will obviously do the same. You can find my favourite recipes right here
