    Unlike ginseng, which is a tonic and can be taken daily (with no known reasonable limits on dosage), goldenseal is to be taken internally only as needed. When taken it should be in small amounts for a limited period,(about 10 days). On the other hand, used topically in a poultice, goldenseal does not seem to have a toxic level.

    Nice vid, thank you

    There are many good books to help you. When it comes to plants I like the Peterson Field Guides. I like the way they are set up. Don’t make the mistake of learning it all at once. For instance, choose a few plants and learn everything about those. Then learn a few more and so on. The same applies to learning woodsman skills.
