Was thinking we should start a post of the different wildcrafting items. Just a list maybe a little about how their used when you put a post on just type in what it is. Something like this.

Porcupine guardhairs: Used in Native American head dresses

Porcupine quills: Used as jewlery items.

From what I understand, skunk cabbage root is used in asthma medicine.

Sumac berries can be used to make a lemonade-like drink.

Is this the kind of thing you're after?

Yeah I just thinking this could be a thread that people could look at and find things that they could use or sell out of nature. I know this whole section is that I was thinking of more of a quick referance and could find more info in the rest of the forum.

Walnut hulls Dye or concentrated to a stain.

Ring worms;
You simply apply the stain and then do nothing else. By the time the stain wears off, (you can't wash it off), the ringworm will be gone. Hope this helps some.

The milk juice from a leaf of a Cataba worm tree will heal ring worm also. That's what my mama used on us kids. She just rubbed the milk juice on the ring worm area.

Also, I harvest the fat off of all the animals my boys trap, render it, and make soap. The fat in the soap recipe is like the "pork" in Pork'n'beans. Just a drop will do it. I need some different animal fat if anybody has any to offer. Will barter soap for fat... confused

Green willow sticks are good to weave baskets. I've also cooked down deer fat to waterproof boots... Smells like funnel cake to me smile

Willow branch tips when crushed and made into tea can be used as root starter.

Goldenseal root. Good for sore throat, good stomach ache medicine, good dye, good to make money with.

Anyone know how use black cohosh root at home?
I don't really think digging would be profitable for me, but would like to use some that is growing on one of my hillsides.
