One of my grandmothers’ old recipes was this one, when her knees hurt she would rub it on, if we had a fever she would give us a rub down with it, if a headache a Rub and a hancherchief around the head… etc etc etc. The Healing Alcohol.
The alcohol extracts the properties of the plants of excellent way and thus they are conserved for long time. A few drops of plant extract is effective for the most chronic pains, whether of joints, back, even head … in general any pain, applied externally.
To prepare this alcohol, you need:
1 bottle of Superior 70 Alcoholado
1 sprig of rosemary – alleviate muscle pains, improve memory, boost immune system and circulatory system.
1 branch of rue – antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, calming hysteric and epileptic attacks
3 branches of camphor-antioxidant, pain relief, anesthetic, anti-inflammatory,decongestant, asthma,
1 piece of 5 cm ginger- nauseas, morning sickness, reduce muscle pain, soreness, anti-inflamatory, lower blood sugar, menstrual pains
1 thyme branch-lower blood pressure,coughing, boost immunity, disinfect, boost mood.
2 sprigs of mint -digestion, nausea, headaches,coughs, respiratory disorders, asthma,depression, fatigue, memory loss, allergies, hay fever.
Herbs can be obtained in health food stores, supermarkets, pharmacies or nurseries (where they sell potted plants). Freshest better, but if you only get them dry that will also work.
FYI: prepared it before needed.
How to prepare : In the alcohol bottle, place all the herbs, let it sit for a week in a dark place and keep shaking it. When you see the liquid evaporating or you have used it, add more alcoholado. You don’t have to start all over. I have a bottle of many years and have never replace any of the plants in them. Maybe add one or two branches I love to add rude and rosemary once in a while and it it still functional.
Use: It is used for any type of external pain, called arthritis, fibromyalgia, headaches, rheumatism, etc. It is not necessary to put much, because as an extract, is very concentrated. It can be applied with the hand, with the help of a cotton. For EXTERNAL USE only.
