Springtime Medicinal Vinegar

April 12, 2019

Author: Lily Mazzarella MS, CNS

In general, for a medicinal vinegar, you want to have 1 part herb to 5-7 parts vinegar (weight to volume ratio). I suggest only using ACV with live mother for medicinal kinds of vinegar. When you are using the "folk method" of herbal medicine making, we usually dispense with weights and measure and eyeball things.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients

  • Nettle leaf 2 TBSP
  • Borage leaf + flower 1 TBSP
  • Burdock 1 TBSP
  • Horsetail 1 TBSP
  • Oat Straw 1 TBSP
  • Rosemary 2 tsp

Add all ingredients to a clean jar, and cover with ACV, filling nearly to the top. Place parchment paper over jar before sealing with lid (vinegar can rust and degrade the metal lids). Keep in a cool place and shake once daily for 1-3 weeks. Strain, and take 1 TBSP daily in 6-8 ounces of water, or use as vinegar in salad dressing. This blend can also be diluted and used as a hair rinse!
You can add raw local honey for flavor and allergy support. Often people use 1-2 parts vinegar to 1 part honey.

Add-ins

Prepared eggshell: rinse 3 eggshells and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Crush lightly and add to the vinegar.
Fresh cleavers
Fresh chickweed
Thyme
Oregano
Ginger

B complex

Love the b complex, couldn’t find it elsewhere easily

Yes, this dries up poison oak.

I tried it after the rash did not go away for 2 weeks. It rapidly retreated, and gone.

LOVE!

Tried the lavender moisture cream this morning and it went on so beautifully, easy and almost satin-like. My face feels so nourished, soft it feels so good. Best moisturizer I have applied in a very long time.

Astaxanthin

This is my first time trying this product, and because I am taking it for inflammatory joint pain, I have seen some definite alleviation of my discomfort since I started taking it over a week ago. I am also taking it with Tumeric and Resveratrol (all three formulas twice a day), so I am not sure weather my relief is totally due to the Astaxanthin or the combination of herbs. Still I will continue along this path, since it is very much helping my hips and lower back. I would recommend others give it a try and if needed add the two additional anti-inflammatory combinations. I find it a better alternative to NSAIDs and other meds that cause gastric issues.

NERVE BALM IS AWESOME!!

NERVE BALM IS THE BEST PRODUCT THAT I HAVE FOUND TO WORK ON MY NEUROPATHIC PAIN AND I AM GLAD MY CHIRPRACTOR INTRODUCED TO ME THIS PRODUCT. THANK YOU.
