I’ve divided the formuale into three sections: Herbal Cold Formulae, Aromatherapy Oils and Flower Remedies. Plus, I’ve included a section with nutritional supplements. Enjoy!
1. Herbal Cold Formulae
Unless otherwise stated, the formulas refer to dried herbs and the doses are for adults. If you are one of the lucky ones who have access to fresh herbs, rather make a fresh batch each morning.
Use a teaspoon as your measure (part) and substitute one part dried herb with three parts fresh herb if you have those available.
Cold Prevention Formula
This formula consists of a couple of carefully selected tonic and detoxifying herbs. It helps clears toxins from your body, strengthens your body and supplies valuable vitamins and minerals.
Take this mixture as a preventative before you get a cold. Do not take it if you have a cold. All the herbs are available from health shops.
2 parts burdock root
2 parts dandelion root
1/2 part liquorice root
1 part rose hips
2 parts red clover blossoms
1 part chamomile flowers
1 part alfalfa leaf
All the root ingredients and the rose hips must be more or less the same particle size. Grind those that are not, before you mix them with the remaining three ingredients.
Infuse 1 level tablespoon of the formula in a cup of boiling water for twenty minutes. Drink 3 cups a day.
Sorry, but only logged-in students can see the remaining cold and flu formulae and preparations. Please login or enrol HERE!
- Make a shortlist of three formulae that you’d like to add to your apothecary. Don’t overthink this. Just go with with the three that resonates the most with you.
- Do the same for the nutritional supplements focusing on food sources, not pills.
