Let's Talk About: Tinctures, Elixirs, and Cordials | Pixie's Pocket I love herbs, and I also enjoy alcohol. You dedicated readers know for sure that I adore honey…so I generally do my best to combine those three ingredients in as many forms as possible. My cabinets are full of jars, and those jars are full of strange floating bits in colored liquid. It makes me feel my most witchy to open that cabinet and bring out strange brews to share with friends. I have many jars that are medicine, and jars that are for fun, and jars that are a bit of both. Tinctures are medicinal extracts of herbs in alcohol. The process for making a tincture is simple: Get an herb, fresh or dried. Now, tinctures are potent! Elixirs are the sweetened version of those alcohol-expressed medicines. Then there are the less-than-tasty herbal medicines…adding sweetener to the more bitter or astringent herb tinctures can make ingesting them a more palatable experience, especially with kids.

Since then, I've had so many requests for the info that I'm posting it here forever. Betty Pace gave me this "recipe" last year when my pit bull Lizzie was having severe skin problems.

The secret to making delicious green juices Mon. Feb. 3, 2014 by Linda Kordich (NaturalHealth365) Making green juice delicious is as easy as what I call using the ‘magic 3’ – and boy are they magical. It’s amazing just how much this simple little secret can change the way our taste buds react to dark green juice recipes.

Okay, get your pen and paper out – here’s the easiest way to make those healthy green juices come alive and taste spectacular! 1. 2. 3. *Note: We do not recommend adding any other fruit into the green juice combinations – because if you add too much fruit, you will mitigate any real value in absorption of nutrients, and especially the tonic then becomes less (by far) alkaline, and most fruits are high in sugars.

5 Food-Medicines That Could Quite Possibly Save Your Life Some of the most powerful medicines on the planet are masquerading around as foods and spices. While they do not lend themselves to being patented, nor will multi-billion dollar human clinical trials ever be funded to prove them efficacious, they have been used since time immemorial to both nourish our bodies, and to prevent and treat disease.

What is even more amazing is that many of these "plant allies" are found growing in our backyards, and often sitting there in our refrigerators and spice racks, neglected and under appreciated. Though Mother Nature's formulas are proprietary, she does not grant patents. Garlic, in fact, has several hundred therapeutic properties, confirmed by a growing body of scientific research, which you can view directly on Source: Green Med Info Related:

Canker sore relief with natural bee propolis Wed. Feb. 12, 2014 by Karen Sanders, staff writer (NaturalHealth365) There is no doubt about it – aphthous ulcers – more commonly known as canker sores – can be excruciatingly painful. They are also surprisingly common; up to 20 percent of the population has, or will have, one of these troublesome mouth lesions, which can linger for up to two weeks and cause severe stinging sensations that make eating and talking difficult. To make matters worse, doctors don’t really know what causes canker sores – although some nutrition experts believe vitamin deficiencies may be to blame in some cases – and there is no conventional ‘cure’. Once again, Mother Nature comes to the rescue – propolis, a substance made by bees, is emerging as a drug-free treatment – which can not only relieve symptoms but help to limit outbreaks of recurrent aphthous ulcers. What exactly is propolis? Also called bee putty and bee glue, propolis is a resinous substance used by bees to caulk, seal and secure their hives. Dr.
