After using herbs to recover from a severe bout with influenza in 1999, however, her focus became fixed upon the medicinal properties of plants. Cat's interest in prepping began in 2008 when her household faced a loss of income due to the failing economy. Both interests melded together earning her the nickname, “The Herbal Prepper”. Cat Ellis is a homeschooling mom who teaches herbalism, aromatherapy, and food storage techniques in New England. Cat regularly blogs and podcasts on her website,
