Making My Own Herbal Remedies

   How I make my extracts!


   One of the things that I have always wanted to get into was making my own herbal remedies for myself and my family to use. If you have read some of my other articles or seen my videos you know that I am following the protocols of Dr. Robert Morse to heal my body and rid my thyroid of the nodules. I am doing this through a diet of primarily fruit and eliminating the use of toxic foods and products.

Because what we put in, on and breath in to our bodies is what is making us sick!

As part of my game plan I am consuming herbs. Herbs are natures medicine and there are herbs to help our bodies heal from anything! I can't always afford to buy prepared formulas so I like to make some myself. I am currently using a Licorice Root Extract that I made myself. Check out the video below. I will also include a detailed step by step on this post. It's super easy and with a little know how and time you can be making your herbal remedies too.

"All tinctures are extracts, but not all extracts are tinctures!"

I recently learned the difference between and extract and a tincture. An extract is dry or fresh herb, and 80 proof alcohol as our solvent. The alcohol extracts the medicine A tincture is the same thing except there is distilled water in it too. The water makes a little less potent product, but it will still extract the medicinal qualities quite nicely.

The alcohol extracts the pure essence out of the herbs making it an easy way to get it into your system. You could eat a whole bunch of herbs to get the medicinal qualities in one dropper full of extract.

You can take extracts or tinctures by mouth as is, or your can put it into some water or juice. I like to put my licorice root extract in my morning lemon water or juices. I also use the dry licorice root in my Heal All Tea for an added and more enjoyable flavor.

So basically all you need to make your own herbal medication is some 80 proof vodka and some herbs. I feel dry herbs are great because they can be stored and kept for a long time. You can also use fresh clean herbs. When you use fresh clean herbs you have to make sure that it is completely dry first and you simply just fill the jar a little more than you would for dry herbs.

Also you will need to do your research and find out what herbs you need to be taking. You will want to find out what herbs do what and how to dose your tinctures and herbal medications. There are many good books out there for learning all of that. For online information I suggest Mountain Rose Herbs on YouTube. They have some awesome tutorials and tons of useful information.

I also have bought some of my herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs as well. They have lots of choices and most of which are certified organic. I also find the prices reasonable :)

Here is some more awesome information that I thought you should have so that you can begin making your own herbal remedies.

Thank you for reading and God bless!
