3 Herb Formula

Three Herbs to use to quickly heal injuries.

1. Horsetail
2. Nettle
3. Oatstraw

I buy bulk 1LB bags of each.

Take 1/2 cup of each herb and mix together in a harbor bowl. Then use the whole mixture to make either hot tea with 1/2 gallon of water or a cold infusion with 1/2 gallon of water.

For the tea, pour 1/2 gallon water in large pot, pour the whole mixture of herbs into the water and bring to boil, turn off heat and let steep for 1-2 hours with the lid on the pot. Strain off tea into 1/2 gallon jar. For cold infusion, I use a stainless steel mesh infuser that fits into a 1/2 gallon mason jar.

I drink the tea constantly throughout the day until the injury is healed. This is by far the most effective remedy I have found for healing physical injuries. Nothing else comes close.

God bless and hope this helps. Feel to comment.

Apple Cider Vinegar

My 15 yr old son came home from school limping one day. He told me he'd gotten a sore (pulled) muscle while running Track & Field. He was extremely sore on his lower right abdomen. Like a smart mom, I came to this site looking for suggestions! I then soaked a square gauze pad (paper towels would do) with organic Apple Cider Vinegar w/the "mother", and placed that over the sore area for 1/2 hr and had him stay still. After the time was up, my son said 90% of the pain was gone. Amazing remedy. Thank you, Earth Clinic!
