I know that many herbal remedies are tinctures or essential oils, or are 'prepared' in some way. But is it possible to get the benefits of the herbs just by incorporating them in our diets?

I assume that some would be difficult to use - some of the remedies that use different barks, or very woody parts of the plant might not be all that appealing. But there are lots of herbs that are quite tasty, as well as medicinal. So, if we ate a lot of them, would we reap the medical benefits, or do they need to be prepared in a specific way to get the full benefit?

Permies pays all affiliates by the fifth of the month for the previous month's sales.
Of the sales you bring in through the affiliate program, Permies takes 1%.
We use PayPal for transactions. PayPal typically takes 2.5% from the money we transfer to you, but that figure varies from time to time.

Permies pays the affiliates directly, so the seller doesn't need to bother.
All business is based out of Missoula, Montana, USA.

The product owner gets to decide how much commission they are willing to give to you, the affiliate marketer, for that product. Most of the products on the marketplace range from a 40% - 80% commission rate. You can find the affiliate percentage by scrolling to the very bottom of the digital market thread, and looking below the Thread Boost button, just above that thread's affiliate link.

Just putting these photos of Paul here. So if anyone needs large format images, here they are!
