If you have never suffered from migraines, they can be debilitating. If you have, you know what I'm talking about. The symptoms include headache, nausea and/or vomitting, sensitivity to light and sound, the presence of an aura and blurred vision. Migraines are can be different for each person. More about Migraines.
I suffered from migraines for 15 years and it was Chiropractic that helped me the most. I have been migraine free for 5 1/2 years!
(I'm 30 so that makes my first migraine at 9 1/2 years old)
For some, Feverfew can provide relief from migraine symptoms. Feverfew has also been used for asthma, arthritis, fever, psoriasis, digestion and menstrual cramp relief.
|Remember to Save Your Jars!|
You'll need: A clean jar, vodka or everclear, herb(s), measuring cups and/or scale, labels and cheesecloth or strainer. If you don't have a strainer you can use a funnel with a coffee filter.
Herbs, fresh or dried
Alcohol, vodka or Everclear
*DO NOT use rubbing alcohol*
For fresh herbs, chop plant material (stems and leaves) and flowers.
Fill your jar. For dried herbs, fill half of your jar.
Add enough alcohol to your jar to cover the herbs, plus another inch. I prefer Everclear, especially for fresh herbs. Cover with a lid. Shake every other day.
Label your jar with date and ingredients. Place in a cool, dark place for 4-6 weeks. Once your tincture is ready, strain through a coffee filter or cheesecloth into a dark (amber) jar. If you do not have a dark jar, leave in a dark place.
