Alder to the Rescue
So one of the herbs I've been experimenting with lately, based on Kiva Rose's successes, is the beloved Alder (Alnus spp, usually A. rubra or A. serrulata). I've given it a go on a long standing jaw infection, and I'm waiting to hear results of that still.
Most recently I got a message from a friend in the middle of the night with a possible spider bite which was infected and possibly necrotizing. Uh oh. What to do. My friend recounts with eloquent words the whole event, and I'm happy to report that Alder is in fact a wonderful and helpful ally for possibly very bad spider bite situations!
Yay for Alder!
