I came home after a very very wet miserable day at work to this amazing gift of 3 different sized Sami style oil skin bags, a bar of wax with its own pouch and a cable tidy from @blueangelical 🤗🤗🤗 your quality is second to non! Amazing and British made! Check his products out. You sir are a true gentleman. Thank you so much 😊 👍🏻👍🏻#bushcraft#samistyle#outdoors#bushcraftkit#oldschooltrading#handmade
Making char cloth in my honey stove, note the exhausts coming from the centre hole catch alight. You know when char cloth is ready when there is no longer and smoke coming from the centre hole. Char cloth under goes incomplete combustion which is why it so readily takes a spark.
Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria) grows in wetlands and along rivers and lakes. Is edible, but more medicinal. The flowers contain salicylic acid, have quite a strong taste of root beer for my American brethren and germolene for my British counter parts (a lot easier on the teeth than willow bark 😉). The young leaves taste a little like the flower but have a sweet stronger aftertaste of watermelon (I think anyway). #bushcraft#plantidentification#plantid#naturalremedies
