- Jan 31, 2013Yea, I had "words" with a lady doing a natural dyeing demo at the NH Sheep
and Wool a few years ago. Her audience was mostly women, and she was using
Tansy. Lovely stuff, gives a great yellow colour, grows like a weed (duh!).
And is a great way to get yourself a miscarriage.
Didn't say a word about the potential danger of it, was passing it round
for people to examine. Then got snippy with me when I said "excuse me, but
if you're pregnant, you shouldn't be handling that stuff."
Who studied herbal medicine lo these many years ago. After all, in a
post-zompocalypse world, BigPharma won't be around to keep us healthy.
