Re: Flu and Cold Remedies

I'm sure it depends on the distiller! There's an amazing spiced rum made by one of our local breweries with orange peel, cinnamon and cocoa nibs. THOSE are added whole during the fermentation process--so I imagine it would make an amazing (and somewhat expensive!) cold elixir. As usual, I guess one ...

Re: Flu and Cold Remedies

Oh I bet a spiced rum would be nice for a cold formula--the spices would add so much warmth! I know a splash of spiced rum is delicious in a strong elderberry tea, with honey, when you're all congested, so why not just extract right into it? I wonder, do you think the spices would effect the saturat...

Re: Any herbal cure for dry eyes?

Re: Flu and Cold Remedies

ItalianBee I prefer Brandy as well! It seems remedies made in brandy are ... kinder and gentler. Or something. :) Though I DO like to use Scotch when the preparation is for magic more than it is for medicine (although most herbal things end up being both and more, don't they????). Something about th...

Re: Vitamin C/Garlic Clove for Yeast Infection

Herbnut I have tried that too! And it works all right, better for a mild case than for the persistent recurring types, in my experience. But the vinegar should be diluted or it will burn! Also, in general washes and douches are a mixed bag, because they can flush out valuable flora and disrupt the b...

Re: Flu and Cold Remedies

Oh I never even THOUGHT of mullein syrup! My wife has asthma and when she gets colds they go straight to her lungs! She won't drink herbal tea but I bet I could get her to try a home made "cough syrup". I harvested a HUGE mullein plant this summer and dried all of it, and haven't used it y...
