Re: Upcoming colonoscopy - any herbal advice?

I wouldn't recommend infusions. The purpose of the clear liquid diet is to clean out your system. Depending on what you're infusing - there can be a lot of more solid matter in it. They want the colon clean of the body processing any solids so that if you get nicked - there's no fecal matter to cont...

The assistant at my one do's office swears by ice baths. That jumping into freezing water is like a weeks worth of healing - not an ouch or an ooch or ...

Re: Best way to store dried herbs

Either mason jars or in the nice heavy duty bag that it was shipped in. I have a kitchen cabinet set aside for my herbs and stuff. It's on the opposite wall as the stove so I don't have to worry about residual heat.

Re: Dried Motherwort

Dried herbs are usually made with anywhere from a 1:3 to a 1:5 ratio. I pretty much make all of mine with a 1:4 ratio just cuz it's right in the middle. The first number is the weight of the herb. The second number is the fluid ounces of alcohol. One ounce of dried herb to 4 ounces of 100 proof vodk...
