I dunno about you but whilst breastfeeding my little angel I can’t afford to be getting attacked by any rotten germies of the flu or cold bearing kind.
Aside from the fact I hate being sick (and I’ve already had a bad bout of mastitis) anything that is going on in my body will indeed be passed onto Arabella via the Mummy Milking Machines.
Its DEAD easy to do & is the best way to get quality echinacea that hasn’t been meddled with, into your bloodstream ASAP.
Take 1 dropper full at the first sign of cold or flu & repeat every 2 - 3 hours. Supplement with ginger, honey & lemon tea mixed with a tea ball of echinacea & catnip (which will help you sleep). You’ll be right as rain in no time!
- 30grms dried organic Echinacea (which you can get from your local Health Food store or click here)
- 250mls high quality vodka (suggestion is 100 proof if you can buy it; if not ask the Liquor Store clerk for advice)
- Small 250 - 300ml glass Jar with lid
Label the jar with the date you made the mixture, the name (Echinacea Tincture) & date it will be ready (6 weeks from date mixture is made).
After 6 weeks, pour the contents of the jar through a muslin cloth to strain & place in glass dropper bottles labelled with date & name of tincture. You should get about 3 - 4 small bottles of tincture out of this amount.
Shelf life of tintctures is pretty good; will last you at least this season if not next season!
As easy as this recipe is, if you can’t be bothered or don’t have time then email me your name, address & order requirements (how many bottles you want) at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can make it for you for a small charge.
Take one full dropper full at the first sign of a cold or flu & continue throughout the day/s until it goes away.
Love & yawns (with spew covered jammies!)
