panax tincture

I have been blessed to aquire some fresh local and very old ginseng roots that I want to tincture. I often see the whole root in the bottle. When I do other roots, I cut them up. Is there a reason that the whole root is what I see? is it because a whole dried root is being used?

Re: Arnica

Re: Arnica

Whitehorse, I found your suggestion fascinating, so I dissolved some Epsom salts in water and then whisked it with my arnica-St. John's wort ointment. I have to shake it before I use it, because as you pointed out the salts don't dissolve in oil. It's hard to know if the massage is helping more tha...

Re: Which oil is the best oil?

I still use olive oil 99% of the time. I always have - just like it and am the most comfortable with olive oil. That being said, I will use coconut oil in some instances. I do like it - I just don't like it for everything. Lady A - look to California for your pure, unadulterated olive oil. There is...
