DIY "Allergy" Tincture Recipe Posted on 10 Aug 16:15 , 0 comments

Another recipe for alternative "medicine."

For my allergy tincture I use a special blend from Mary's Heirloom Seeds DIY Tincture Kit.   It is an herbal combination which can be used as a tea, infusion or tincture.  Our DIY Allergy Kit include: organic Nettle leaf, organic Fennel seed, organic Lemongrass, organic Spearmint leaf, organic Eyebright, organic Calendula flowers, organic Peppermint leaf, organic Red Clover herb and blossoms, organic Lavender flowers, organic Blue Vervain, and organic Stevia leaf.

"Allergy" Mixed herbs

I won't get into the specific properties of each herb but I can tell you that, used as tea, it is wonderfully minty and works well for seasonal allergy relief.  

 

Making your own herbal home remedies is easy. Herbal tea is a great start but Tinctures can a much stronger alternative. The cost to purchase 2 ounces in the store is almost 4 times what it would cost to make your own. Some are even 7 times more expensive! Source
