Frankincense and Myrrh have been used in herbal science for centuries. Both of these resins have many beneficial properties. I am taking it for support of my bones, joints and brain.
Frankincense & Myrrh Tincture
1/4 cup each of Frankincense and Myrrh. Put in a 16 oz jar. Add Tito’s vodka (tastes best, made in U.S.) Lid tightly. Shake daily for 4-6 weeks. Much of the solids will dissolve. Strain through cloth to remove the remaining solids. Store in a colored glass bottle away from light and heat. Label bottles well.
To use: Place 5-10 drops in water and take once a day. It will take about a week or 10 days to really notice changes. This tincture also helps cleanse and support healing of wounds.
Do you suffer with low iron levels? So did I. After a gastric bypass, I do not absorb iron in the intestines well. This tincture has been my answer. It works well. I can again give blood. My levels high enough.
Making a tincture is not difficult. It just takes time for the tincture to be ready. Below I have the Super Iron Tincture. In another post, I will give the Frankincense and Myrrh Tincture. Explore the properties and you may want to try it for yourself. It is helping me feel better.
Super Iron Tincture
1/4 cup each: Yellow Dock, Nettle Leaf, Dandelion
2 Tablespoons Thyme
Method: Put herbs in cloth bag along with a small clean rock. Leave room in the bag for herb expansion. Tie shut securely. Put in a 16 oz. jar. Add Tito’s Vodka (it is more palatable and made in the U.S.) in jar. Let sit uncapped while herbs absorb the vodka. Top off as needed.
Put jar in a heavy pot with water. Slowly heat until mixture is very hot. Top with more vodka if needed. Lightly cap jar. Let cool. Top off vodka if needed. When cool, cap tightly.
Shake daily for 30 days. After 30 days; remove bag and sit in a strainer over a bowl. Pour the tincture to another clean jar. Squeeze bag to all the tincture out you can. Strain through cloth.
Add: 1/2 cup blackstrap molasses and 1/4 cup wild honey. Shake well. Store in a colored glass bottle away from light and heat. Label bottles well.
When taking, hold tincture in mouth for 15-30 seconds. It helps the mucus membranes absorb tincture.
