I recently heard that the flu season has started off with a sledge hammer in Nevada and so I decided it was time to do some preventive work and make a super strong tincture to combat the colds and flu that are going around. I used my favorite glycerin and water base and then used the following herbs: Echinacea, Ginger, Elderberry, Goldenseal, Licorice, Marshmallow, Mullein, Astragalus, Lemon Balm, a little dried Shiitake mushroom and Eucalyptus leaf. Hopefully that covers all possibilities and keeps me safe this winter.
One advantage of working in hospice is that I get to play with all the therapy dogs. This is Asher, a Corgi.
