about the herb*


The herb (especially the root) is a relaxing diaphoretic, antispasmodic, carminative, and expectorant. Specially of use in infections of the respiratory tract where there is dampness, such as pleurisy (water in the lung). This is much like another herb in this family, Pleurisy Root (Asclepias tuberosa). Powdered roots used as a poultice on open sores. Dried leaves are preferred because fresh leaves may cause nausea and vomiting.

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.
