Bragg’s apple cider vinegar
Grind all of the herbs and vegetables in a food processor and place into a large glass jar. The jar should be about ½ to ¾ full with raw vegetable/herb pulp. Fill and top with Bragg’s apple cider vinegar. Shake or stir and close lid. Store in a dark cupboard for two weeks, or more if desired. Shake or stir the mixture daily. After two weeks, use cheesecloth in a strainer to strain the solids. Bottle the strained liquid in tightly-capped glass containers or bottles; store away from direct sunlight.

2 to 3 Tbsp olive oil (possibly more)
Chickweed (approximately the amount that fills a 2-gallon-size food storage bag)
¼ cup parmesan cheese
¼ to ½ cup dulse flakes to taste
Cut the chickweed into 2-to-3-inch lengths before putting it in the food processor so that it doesn’t wrap itself around the blade attachment.
In a food processor, chop the cloves of garlic. Add shelled walnuts and chop. Add olive oil, and then in batches, add the chickweed. Add more olive oil if needed to achieve desired texture.
Add parmesan cheese and dulse flakes to taste. Serve as a dip with vegetables or crackers, or as a delicious addition to other recipes.

Simple Recipe for Hand Soap
"Add essential oils that you like; my personal favorites are the Lemon-Rosemary combination and the Blue Tansy,” enthuses Tiffany Davies. “They both smell heavenly.”
Yields: (1) 16 oz jar
16 oz distilled water
2 Tbsp castile soap
½ tsp carrier oil, such as grapeseed oil
24 drops of an anti-viral essential oil, such as tea tree, cinnamon, peppermint or eucalyptus
Fill a 16 oz glass jar with most of the water, leaving room for the other ingredients. Add the other ingredients, top off with water, put on the lid and shake. Squirt 1 to 2 pumps on hands and wash hands for 20 seconds––the first 15 seconds without water, then rinsing off for the last 5 seconds under water.
