Recipes-Trademarks-Lack of respect!

Fire Cider
I can't believe in this day and age there is still no lack of respect and that humans are still blinded by dollar signs.

One of my favorite and highly respect herbalist Rosemary Gladstar has been teaching herbalism, sharing recipes, and publishing her recipes and knowledge for many years. She shares her beloved recipes with us upcoming herbalist and family herbalist freely, so we can take care of our communities, ourselves, and hasn't minded people selling there handcraft works (from her recipes) with her recipes name on it.

Rosemary doesn't share them so you can slap a patent on them and block everyone form selling their handcrafted goods. Which ultimately your telling Rosemary herself she can't sell her own recipe and this is very sad.

WE CAN'T STEAL FROM OUR ELDERS/MENTORS AND SPIT IN THERE FACES LIKE THAT!! IT'S VERY DISRESPECTFUL.

 Here is more on the issue I am venting about Please pass it along:

Pink textured tape "Vintage Hip" by Making Memories. Metal buttons from Making Memories. Coin envelopes made out of Recollections Card stock.

The Book design I learned from Kathy Orta-Files of "Paper Phenomenon", and Some from Laura Denison of  "Follow the Paper Trail".
