Desert herbs are potent medicine. Even though the environment is harsh with it’s extremes in temperature and hidden water; these same attributes encourage the desert herbs to concentrate their constituents. Just a small amount of some herbs are more than enough. Sue and Candace work with the guidance that herbalist Christina Sanchez gave them in podcast show 142 to incorporate ethically harvested desert herbs into their lives.

We answer a question from another podcast listener, Shirley, who asked about safety of taking echinacea every day. Sue and Candace do a little herbal myth busting and add other herbs to the list of immune supporting herbs to consider. Thank you for your question, Shirley!
