First thing - we're pleased to announce that our Quiet Cough Tincture is back! One of the herbs from our original formula (Osha Root, aka Bear Root) became endangered and difficult to get. As we don't ever want to contribute to any herb's endangered status, we opted to eliminate this herb from the mixture and to re-formulate it using Thyme and Elecampane Root. Both are wonderful for the respiratory tract, helping as an expectorant, antibacterial, antiseptic, and antispasmodic. They help in cases of cough from cold or flu, bronchitis, sinusitis, tuburculosis, asthma, whooping cough, and other respiratory issues. Please note that it is NOT safe or appropriate for pregnant or breastfeeding women, but the herb Mullein is fine for both. Mullein is also one of the herbs featured in the Quiet Cough Formula. I have to say, after going through a little cold this past week, I like our new Quiet Cough Tincture even better than the old blend! It just "feels good" - it felt good in my body (like my body was just absorbing the nutrients and healing properties), it felt good on my sore throat, and it sure helped eliminate my cough. I am VERY happy with this blend!
Now that we have finished the fertility/pregnancy/postpartum series for our recent monthly specials, we are now turning our attention back to immune health and the cold & flu season, because well, its the cold & flu season and lots of people are getting sick! On special this month are:
Quiet Cough Formula - as described above!
Astragalus - helps build and strengthen the immune system to keep you healthy in the first place.
Echinacea - should you become sick, discontinue the Astragalus and start Echinacea, which will help spur the immune system into action to go in and fight the virus or bacteria.
Cold & Flu Tincture - also for if or when one might become ill, this can help the illness pass a bit more quickly and easily.
Garlic Ear Oil - for ear discomfort or ear infections. (Side note: dairy is famous for causing chronic ear infections.)
