Re: Cleavers

We all have to try dried cleavers at least once...just as we have to try eating a wee bit fresh (LadyB is not the only one to discover the cling to your tongue yummy of fresh cleavers salad...lol )

Here is a great article written by Paul Bergner.

Personally I'm on the fence with internal Comfrey ROOT use, it would depend on why it was needed, is there an alternative?

Re: Double extracts

I've also been looking into 'double extracts', more towards working with herbs and honey. There are some herbs that just refuse to extract into honey, so into water, oil or alcohol first...sometimes water and alcohol then into honey.

Re: Burdock root/seed tincture

Do you have access to an Asian food market/store? Here in the US we can find Burdock at Health food stores and Asian markets...Sometimes the root is labeled GOBO.

Re: So-Called Abnormal Bleeding

Where's the 'abnormal' in this tale?
BC pill usage once stopped can cause a delay in menstruation for a bit.

Re: palpitations
