about the herb*

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

American Indians used inner-bark tea as diuretic, strong laxative, emetic; poulticed on cuts, sore or swollen limbs, newborn's navel, and boils to relieve pain and swelling; also for headaches. Leaves poulticed on bruises, and on cuts to stop bleeding. Bark tea was formerly used as a wash for eczema, old ulcers, skin eruptions. Considered a mild stimulant, carminative, and diaphoretic.

This plant acts as a fever reducer by both resetting the fever control mechanism within the brain and stimulating sweating. With equal parts Peppermint and Yarrow, this remedy has been used since ancient times. A tea with Peppermint in water is a folk remedy for colds; induces sweating and nausea.

Warning: Bark, root, leaves, and unripe berries toxic; said to cause cyanide poisoning, severe diarrhea. Fruits edible when cooked. Flowers not thought to be toxic; eaten in pancakes and fritters.

Herbie's Herbs' tinctures

Herbie’s Herbs tinctures are alcohol-based preparations macerated in 50% distilled cane sugar alcohol at a 1:2 ratio. Read more here

Compared to other methods, alcohol helps extract nearly all active constituents from a herb yielding stronger tinctures that require a lower dose to attain beneficial effects.

Alcohol eliminates the growth of bacteria and mold while preserving the valuable constituents resulting in a much longer shelf life.
