2 Wildcrafting Herb First Aid Foundations

For 7Song, wildcrafting is an integral part of herbalism. In terms of stocking your first aid bag, gathering your own plants for medicine can save you money but generally takes a lot more time.

In this video, 7Song discusses the ethical obligations of wildcrafting, the harsh realities of wildcrafting, safety precautions (clothing, weather changes) and other wildcrafting considerations.
