Elder and Echinacea

Katie on May 13th, 2021

I use this to ward off colds when symptoms start – using it about every 30-60 minutes for a couple days. Because my kids are still young, the small doses last a good while. And because it works, I like to keep stocked up so I never run out! And a plus is it tastes really good without any added sugar!

Marshmallow Root

The first thing I found out about marshmallow root is they actually used this to make marshmallows. Who knew right? Marshmallow root has amazing benefits and if there was ever a famine here you could actually use this to help get the minerals needed. It has mucilage property, which produces a thick sticky substance that coats membranes. Marshmallow root is an anti-inflammatory, helps speed up the healing process of inflammatory digestive disorders as well. Help relieve sore throats and reduce dry coughing. This soothing effect can help the inflamed and irritated tissues of not only the respiratory organs, but also of the digestive tract and urinary organs. Marshmallow root has also been used for the kidneys. Some will use it to cleanse their kidneys or urine track. As well as passing kidney stones. What it does is help increase the secretion and flow of urine increasing the flow of urine.

Taking Ancient Medicine Cabinet tinctures have kept me and my family from having major sicknesses for the past couple of years now. Where before, we would find our entire family sick with something or other pretty frequently. Not to say we never get sick, but we now know what works for us and is a more natural alternative. We take their garlic, elder/echinacea, fever-cold-flu, on a regular bases through the winter months as a preventative measure. If we do happen to get sick we will add the cough/congestion as well as upping the dosage of what we take preventatively and the illness is resolved much more quickly. We also really love the digestive aide when we are in need of gas or upset stomach relief. It is so much better for you in a natural form than any other antacids out there. And it works soooo much better and I personally have found that relief comes pretty quickly. I absolutely can’t tell you enough how FANTASTIC their muscle cream is. It is soooo wonderful. If I’m really stiff and hurting I will rub this in before bed and the next morning I can’t believe how much better I’m feeling. We also have their roll-ons and they are wonderful also. Again, I just can’t say enough about all their products and how I believe they have helped aide in a more natural way of being healthy for me and my family. Thanks ladies for all your research, time, talent, and treasures that you all bestow upon us with your different gifting’s in this store. May the Lord richly bless all of you and your families.

I was skeptical at first. I looked at tinctures in general as another phase in a world trying to go all natural. But when both my daughter and I somehow got impetigo (a common infection on the lips of small children) and the antibiotic was going to cost $150, I decided to try using the garlic tincture. We used the tincture three times a day. We applied it two ways. First, we dropped some tincture on our finger and applied to our lips, three times a day. Second, we ingested two or three droppers full three times a day. We experienced results on the second day and after a week the pain was gone with no sign of it anywhere.
I now am a believer. I’ve added the garlic, cough congestion , elder echinacea, and cold flu tinctures once a day forays my winter routine and the last two winters have not got sick once.
