    i use to sew and knit for Gander Mountian so i have bi-lateral carperal tunnal, bi-lateral tennis elbow and bi-lateral bursitis in my sholders so i know pain. i like the Bay Leaf Tincture that my other half ( Misticwolf) makes for me. its not a cure but it helps me deal with the pain.

    Bay Leaf Tincture

    in a 1 quart wide mouth jar put 6 oz. of dried bay leaves. Full jar to just under half full of vodka, then full the rest of the jar with water. Cover and store in cool dark spot, shake once a day. and leave sit for 2 weeks to 1 month. after this time strain and save liquid. store in amber bottles. apply tincture to a soft cloth and rub/massage the affected area. (NOT FOR PREGNANT WOMEN!)

    TECNICAL RECIPE:
    1-part herb to 5-parts solution 45% vodka water mix. (45% alc. ppv.)

    Plantain Ointment

    Pick Plantago leaves when they are vibrant and green. Chop them coarsely and pack loosely into a clean, very dry jar. Add olive oil, dislodge air bubbles with a knife or chopstick until the jar is filled to the very top. label and cap securely. Let sit out of direct sunlight, on a surface that won't be marred by oozing oil.
    Decant after six weeks, pouring off the oil and squeezing out what remains in the plant material. Discard the herb. Grate one tablespoon of beeswax for every ounce of oil. Stirring constantly, heat the oil and beeswax until the wax melts, usually within a minute. Pour the liquid into small, wide-mouthed jars (a good excuse for buying marinated artichoke hearts) and cool.
    Use this onitment lavishly for diaper rash, insect bites, all itches, and minor wounds. It heals, stops itching, checks bleeding, and eases pain.

    Elderberry Syrup Recipe

    7 cups elderberry juice
    8 cups honey
    3 cups 80 proof vodka


    (if you're starting with dried berries, to get "juice", put 1 cup of berries in a quart jar and pour 2 cups of boiling water over them. If they soak it up, add a bit more. Stash in the fridge or a cool, dark place for 24-48 hours.Then strain, and squeeze every bit of liquid you can out- you can twist the berries in a muslin towel and get most of it. You'll need three "jars" of the stuff to get enough for 7 cups. )



    Warm the elderberry juice to “hot, but not boiling” temp… between 150 and 180F should be plenty. Stir in the honey and stir until it’s completely dissolved and blended.

    Remove from the heat, and stir in the vodka.

    Pour into sterile jars or bottles (sterilize them by boiling for 5-10 minutes in boiling water, then let drip dry upside down until filling)

    Cap and LABEL. Store in a cool DARK place (or bottle in dark brown glass)

    Standard dose for adults would be:

    Prophylaxis (prevention) 1 tablespoon (15 mls, or 1/2 ounce) 2x a day. If there is active flu in your office or family, double that, or take more often.

    Treatment: 1-2 tablespoons every 3-4 hours

    Children under 12: half the adult dose

    Toddlers and infants: Talk to your doctor! But, lacking that, 1 tsp at similar intervals to the adult dose should be adequate.

    There is NO way to overdose on this! Put it in juice, jello, pour it over ice cream- any way you can get the kids to take it is fine.

    Alternatives:
    If you do not want to use any alcohol in the syrup, use
    7 cups elderberry juice
    14 cups honey

    Proceed as above, ignoring the reference to the vodka.

    If you don’t want to use honey (probably best to NOT use it for babies under 1 year)


    7 cups elderberry juice
    11 cups sugar

    Stir until the sugar is dissolved in the hot juice, then bottle.

    Re: Mommy Magic's collected herbal recipes

    I am one of those lurkers. It has been a while since I last lurked, but here I am again. These are very interesting and informative recipes. I thank-you very much for sharing them with us. Now I have to try and find some of these items (Herbs?) that you are mentioning.

  20. Re: Mommy Magic's collected herbal recipes

    I have young children and appreciate the applicable recipes you shared.

    Question: One of my sons has asthma. Any recommendations to ease breathing/allergy problems? I am able to store a 3-month supply of his meds but nothing more.
    Also, my toddler and I are prone to strep throat. What would you recommend homeopathically to help ease the pain?

    Lastly: A big thank you for sharing your knowledge! I am new to these forums. I'm printing many of your recipes and am adding them to my emergency binder.

    Childrens Cough Syrup

    Peel and slice 3 large onions into a saucepan. Add equal parts honey and lemon juice (I start with 1/2 c each). Cook until the onions are translucent. Strain. Put the liquid back in the pot and taste it. It should taste about like a honey lemon cough drop - just a hint of onion. It actually tastes good. 1 Tablespoon whenever they cough. This really works....I had chronic bronchitis when I was a child and nothing the doctor prescribed worked, but this did. I would have to a take a spoonful about every hour, but it worked.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Mild Congestion

    Go to the doctor if you need to!

    1 c tomato juice
    1 t lemon juice
    1 t. minced fresh garlic
    1/2 t hot sauce

    Heat together and sip until feeling better. You can freeze this in an ice cube tray, or stick it in the fridge and it will last a few days

    Dandelion Pharmacy

    Dandelion Wine

    2gal/8 liter crock
    3-5 qts/3-5 liters blossoms
    5 qts/5 liters water
    3 pounds/1.5 kg sugar
    1 organic orange
    1 organic lemon
    1 pkg/8 grams live yeast whole wheat bread toast


    DIRECTIONS:

    Find a field of dandelions in bloom on a glorious shining day. Follow the honeybees to the finest flowers. Pick them with a sweeping motion of your parted fingers, like a comb. I leave the green sepals on, but get rid of all stalks.

    Back home, put blossoms immediately into a large ceramic, glass, or plastic vessel. Boil water; pour over flowers. Cover your crock with cheesecloth. Stir daily for three days. On the fourth day, strain blossoms from liquid.

    Cook liquid with sugar and rind of citrus (omit rind if not organic) for 30-60 minutes. Return to crock. Add citrus juice. When liquid has cooled to blood temperature, soften yeast, spread on toast, and float toast in crock. Cover and let work two days. Strain.

    Return liquid to crock for one more day to settle. Filter into very clean bottles and cork lightly. Don't drink until winter solstice.

    Preparation time: A week's worth of effort yields a drink not only delightful but good for your liver, as well.

    Add for scent:
    calamus root OR licorice root

    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    thought this recipe would be good for not only babys bottoms but also a great solution for preppers to have wet ones as they need them.....


    Castile Solution
    1 tablespoon almond, apricot, or other oil
    1 tablespoon Dr Bronner's Liquid Castile Soap
    2 drops tea tree oil
    1 drop lavender oil
    1 cup water

    When mixing solutions it works best to start with oil and end with water. The oil will coat your measuring tools so the soap slips right off. Be sure to add the water slowly or you'll end up with a ton of bubbles! Most of the time it's easiest to gently mix the wipe solution in a bottle with a cover, then pour it into the storage container.

    There are many different ways to store and apply wipe solutions to your wipes, try a few of the following ideas to find the one that works best for your family. You may discover that one system works great at home and another works great away from home. Here's some ideas to get you started:


    Use a spray bottle to spritz baby's bottom or the wipes. (For baby's comfort we prefer spraying the wipes)
    Use a bottle with a pull-up spout (like on bottled-water bottles) to dribble solution onto the wipes.
    Warm solution and place in an insulated container to provide warm wipes for baby.
    Place the solution into a commercial baby wipes container and dip wipes into the solution.
    Place cloth wipes in a commercial baby wipes container and pour wipes solution over wipes.
    A commercial baby wipes container can be placed in a wipes warmer to provide cozy warm wipes for baby.

    Don't store solution or wet wipes for a long time because they can become musty and the wet wipes may even grow mildew - ewww! Check your solution and wet wipes daily, and mix smaller batches of solution frequently instead of large batches less often to avoid mustiness. We mix fresh solution once a week, store it in a bottled-water bottle, and have not had any problems with mustiness.

    note: other recipes for wipe call for vinager to inhibit mold.
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Hardtack
    3- cups flour
    2- teaspoons salt
    1- cup water

    in a large bowl, mix flour and salt, add water and stir or work with hands to blend. knead dough, adding more flour if mixture becomes sticky. turn out onto a floured board, roll dough into a rectrangle 1/2 inch thick, using a sharp knife, cut dough into 3 inch squares. using clean nail, poke 16 holes though each square. bake @ 375% for 25 minutes or until brown. store in an airtight container

    makes 12
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Vapor Rub
    1/4- teaspoon eucalyptus essential oil
    1/8- teaspoon pepperment essential oil
    1/8-teaspoon thyme essential oil
    1/4- cup olive oil

    combine ingredients in a glass bottle. Shake well to mix oils evenly. Gently massage into chest and throat.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Astringent Liniment
    1-part yarrow
    1-part shepherd's purse
    1-part calendula
    1/4-part cayenne

    TO MAKE: cover the herbs with warmed vinegar and / or witch hazel extract, let the mixture sit for 2 to 3 week, strain and rebottle. this liniment will last indefinitly, and can be used as an astringent for muscualar pain and aches.

    Take one and a half ounces of elecampane root, grind it fine (a coffee mill will do), put the ground root in a pint of new milk, boil down to a half pint, take it at one dose in the morning, and fast till 4:00 P.M. on the same day. Repeat this every other day for three days, making three doses in all. The last two doses may consist of two ounces of the root to the pint of milk. It is important that it be taken on an empty stomach, also that nothing should be eaten till from 8 to 10 hours after taking.

    Yummy Homemade Toothpaste!
    2- Tablespoons of Coconut Oil
    3- Tablespoons of Baking Soda
    3- Tablespoons of Baking Soda
    5- drops Spearmint Essential Oil
    a pinch of Stevia powder

    mixed it in a tiny wide mouth half-pint canning jar, and just dip dry toothbrushes in it. Don’t get grossed out… remember coconut oil is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, so it will even keep the toothbrushes more sanitary.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Homemade Toothpaste Recipe
    1/4 cup baking soda
    1/4 cup vegetable glycerin
    1 Tbsp castile liquid soap
    few drops peppermint, anise, wintergreen essential oil, optional
    dash of stevia or xylitol

    Combine ingredients with a hand mixer or by hand as desired. Store in a old toothpaste dispenser by cutting the end off and filling with your toothpaste. Seal the end with masking tape until it is ready for a re-fill. Both of these recipes work well for cleaning your teeth and are completely safe and natural…so no fear for the little ones! Just make sure to only give them a little dab on the toothbrush because the ingesting essential oils is the only concern here. So please use less essential oils if you are concerned.

    found this, thought could be useful...............

    Baby Animal Formula
    keep in refrigerator. Stir or shake well when feeding.
    4- oz evaporated milk
    1- egg yolk
    4- oz water
    1- teaspoon oil (crisco vegetable oil or any kind)

    Mix the following ingredients well and keep in refrigerator. Stir or shake well when feeding. This baby animal formula was given to our family by an old vetranarian who has long since passed on. We've used this formula on puppies, kittens, piglets, and squirrels and bunnies! Simple to make and keeps well. We haven't needed to try it on our little goats but if we ever run out of goat milk we know what to use. The only problem we had with it was with the baby pig I believe, it was a little too rich, so we left out the oil.
