Making Herbal Remedies! | Ashwagandha Tincture

What herbal Remedies am I currently working on? 

Ashwaganda aka “Indian Ginseng," tincture in the works! 

I started these the other day, will take about 8 weeks to completion. Used as an adrenal herb, stress and anxiety reducer. Also known to be grounding, calming, restoring and much more!  

            #herbalmedicine #naturalremedies #naturalhealth #ashwagandha #ashwagandhabenefits

 To make Ashwagandha tincture we simple fill a jar with about 1/3 to 1/2 cup organic dried herb and then fill up the rest of the jar with vodka or any 80 proof alcohol appropriate for ingesting. I used New Amsterdam brand vodka for these. 

Let sit in a dark, cool place like a cabinet. Shake once a day if you can and let stay for about 8 weeks. After that strain with cheese cloth or a strainer, place the liquid in a clean dry jar. Be careful that your jars are clean and dry. You can buy some tincture bottles with a dropper for easy use. 

Take up to 4 droppers or 4 tsps. a day as needed. 

I get everything that I need to make my own herbal remedies from Mountain Rose Herbs. They have high quality affordable organic products for DIY as well as already prepared herbal remedies for those who need it now and or don't want to make it yourself. 

WARNING! Please research every herb that you decide to grow and use as herbal remedies. A great way to learn the wonderful art of herbal remedies please consider getting this book. The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies. I love it and can feel confident that I am using herbs correctly and preparing the best remedies possible. I recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

God bless!

The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies

Discover the Forgotten Power of Plants with Dr. Nicole Apelian!

Click the image to get this awesome book!

    I first watched Nicole on of the authors on a television show that my husband and I like to watch called Alone, she didn't win but did awesome as a survivalist. I could see that she knew what she was doing and her knowledge of edible wild plants was extensive. So naturally when I saw that she wrote a book about foraging and herbal remedies I had to get it! And it is a GOOD ONE! I am replacing my old worn out herb book for this one. I am learning a lot and will be better prepared for those times when I am out in the woods or in a survival situation. 

If you are like me you love to go out and get what I am calling "forest therapy" and just getting out there in nature. I love the fresh air, nature sounds and plants everywhere. Another thing I love is to observe the plants around me and figure out which ones can be used as emergency food, or first aid just in case it is needed. I am also interested in picking whiled foods to eat and learning about what natural foods and herbs are growing near where I live. I know I am not the only one lol! Nature is beautiful and useful! 

In this book you'll find 800+ beneficial plants and remedies in "The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies". It includes recipes of tinctures, teas, decoctions, essential oils, syrups, salves, poultices, infusions and many other natural remedies that our grandparents used for centuries. What's also special about this book is that it has between 2 and 4 high definition, color pictures for each plant and detailed identification guidelines to make sure you've got the right plant.

If that is something that you would like to do and learn about then this book is great for you too. Like I said I got it to replace some of my old herb books and to enhance my survival knowledge as well. Maybe you have seen some of my other herb posts before, this is something that I just can't seem to get away from because I love nature and plants! This book is great for the beginner and anyone who just wants to increase their understanding of herbs and how to use them. 

Just click the link above and see if this is something that you may want to add to your library. Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post and for your support :) God bless you and your family! I really mean that... From Joanne Utke

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!
