Omega Institute Wildcrafting as a Way of Life: An Interview With Herbalist Dina Falconi
An Interview With Herbalist Dina Falconi
Omega: Why would someone want to start making their own self-care products? Dina: First of all, it’s really fun.

It’s questioning what our body needs and then looking for simple solutions. This also opens up a world for people who have chemical sensitivity issues.
