Homemade "Flashes" Tincture recipe

This is an herbal remedy that I'm not quite ready for but I know there are quite a few women out there that would love to have a bit of relief from those power surges.

The "Flashes" herbal mixture from Mary's Tincture Shop makes a perfect combo tincture.  Herbs include organic Motherwort herb, organic Sage, organic Dandelion leaf, organic Chickweed, organic Elder flowers, organic Violet leaf, and organic Oatstraw.  This particular mix can be used to brew a tea but is stronger when made as a tincture.

"Flashes" herb mix
"Flashes" Tincture Recipe  
1 ounce Flashes herb mixture 
5-8 ounces 100 proof vodka 
(80 proof is okay if that's all you have)

*The Flashes Tincture Kits includes a large glass jar, 
1 or 2 ounces of herbs (you choose), strainer top, 
1- 2 ounce amber bottle with dropper and 2 customizeable labels.*

Add herbs to a clean/sterilized jar.  Cover with vodka (or everclear).  Cover and place in a dark area or cabinet.

Shake every other day.  Tincture will be ready in 6 weeks. 

Dosage: varies per person.  Start out slow when trying any new herbs or herbal combinations.  1-2 ml up to 3 times per day.

I am excited to try this... I will be ordering soon. I tried cayenne pepper pills but they were tearing up my stomach.

Thank you for all that you share!

Homemade herbal remedies are SO easy to make. Compared to store-bought they are much more cost effective.
Thanks Stasa!
