About Me

We moved out to Portugal to live a frugal but better , simpler and peaceful life, our house is a very basic, semi ruin, up in the hills outside Figueiro Dos Vinhos, where we work our land, enjoy life with each other and our dogs, and hope to make the smallest carbon footprint we can,

Medicinal Herb Garden

Just a quick update to say... no change really, the weather has been so pooh that Ive not had any chance to get out and work on it, any time we have is spent planting food.
BUT... I did use Rik as a guinea pig again the other day with great success..
A friend of ours had been suffering with coldsores and without thinking gave Rik the customary side to side pecks... sadly almost the next day he had really big painful mouth ulcer... now he swears he's never had a mouth ulcer before in his entire life... and it gave him hell for days with no sign of going.
I checked my herbal and insisted he try my treatment... a fresh bruised Lemon Balm leaf, tucked flat in hs cheek against the ulcer... within a day... much better, the following day the same treatment and it worked...
