Echinacea root + flower, stinging nettle leaf + seed, calendula flowers, yarrow + spilanthes infused into organic cane spirits and honey.
An immune-supportive formula packed with plants to support blood, lymph + general immunity.
Calendula is one of the strongest lymphatic herbs. Our lymph system shadows our circulatory system + is composed of branching webs which extend into every part of our body + cleanse + purify blood. This is especially important just before + during illness, since the lymph system is responsible for removing old or affected blood + cells from the body. Since the lymphatic system does not move by itself (unlike our respiration powered by lungs or circulation powered by heart), we can use plants such as calendula to keep our lymph system running smoothly.
Spilanthes, yarrow + echinacea are three of the strongest antibacterial + antiviral plants in our medicine garden. Spilanthes + echinacea both have a numbing tingle, which you will recognize in the tincture. All three of these plants enhance the production + distribution of white blood cells, the workhorses of your immune system.
Stinging nettle leaf + seed is nutritious + supportive to blood health + provides loads of vitamins + minerals to power + support your body’s immune response. Stinging nettle is also an adaptogen, which means that it can help to rebuild inner energy + address chronic deficiencies.
This tincture is best used liberally (a full dropperful six times a day) at the first sign of illness—swollen glands, sore tissues, fatigue, etc. If you still get sick, continue to take this tincture up to the preventative amount to reduce illness’ duration.
