Lana started Naturals R Dino-mite in 2013, after being inspired by another WAHM. Her favorite things to make and sell are wool diaper covers, mama cloth pads, and bum circle pants.

As part of this guide you will be creating a reference binder. The basic reference binder will include creating a Materia Medica.
Each lesson will include a select number of herbs for you to research and study on your own. It is suggested that you use at least 3 reference guides (see list here) to research the herbs.

The Materia Medica you create will be your own personal reference guide on the herbs you have studied; you will record pertinent information on the herb which will help you identify if the herb is right to use in your situation. The following information is necessary to include in your reference file on each herb:

To start out our Herbal Learning Guide, I'm posting a list of references to use for your research. Many of these books are suggested by Rosemary Gladstar and other practicing herbalists. I have come to the realization that there are many books on herbs that were written by authors who simply read other herbal references. I use Rosemary's list as a guide to find true herbalist that have authored books - true practicing herbalists (past or present) who live their life with plants, work with them, and who write from their own experiences and observations not by simply reading other reference materials. She recommends using at least THREE good herbal reference books to learn about herbs.

I believe that Mother Nature has given us many ways to help ourselves be healthy. One of these ways is plants (aka herbs). Plants offer a marvelous system of natural healing, have nutritional and culinary value, and do good for our souls.

My husband got me a new blender for my birthday and I’ve been trying out all sorts of new recipes. This is a combination of a recipe my grandma gave me that she used a lot when her kids were younger and a recipe out of the cookbook that came with the blender. It is healthy, cheap to make and they turn out perfect every time!

This tutorial is designed so that you can sew your own newborn inserts for cloth diapers spending the least amount of money possible. This is why we have created three different styles of newborn inserts - #1 is a sandwich style insert using Zorb. #2 is a prefold style insert using Zorb. And #3 is a prefold style insert using all scrap material (this being the cheapest way to make an insert).
