Can this be added to the PMS tincture? Or would it just be to much?

    Hello,
    That should be just fine. However you could also drink the corn silk in a tea if you wish. Thanks!

Is this product safe to take during pregnancy or breast feeding?

    Hello!
    From the research I've done most people do not recommend using corn silk while breastfeeding since it has a natural diuretic quality, and may interfere with your milk supply. Thanks!

First, I just want to say, thank you. I have made a few orders from BHS, and have been just thrilled with the herbs and books. My husband thinks it's great too. I have only been doing the "herbal thing" for a few months, and was actually excited for one of the kids to get sick, so I could try a few things out on them. Well, recently, all 4 of our children caught the flu, and I treated them using herbs, probiotics, baths and poultices. They recovered SO quickly! The next week, hubby got a cold and I asked him if I could mix something up for him. He said that after seeing how the kids responded to their herbal treatments, that he would take anything I had to give him! Well, I made what we have since dubbed 'the powerhouse' ( Echinacea, goldenseal, Yarrow and Cayenne), and that cleared him up right quick! Thank you so much for helping me to be confident and take responsibility for my family's healthcare.

Sincerely,
~Kjersten H.
