Hemorrhoid Salve

by Hope W.

May 2006

Had to let you know that I recently ordered herbs and they arrived in RECORD time. What great service! I LOVE having these herbs in the house! I use them all the time and had to share my "recipe" for hemorrhoid salve.

I chop off a section of aloe vera from my plant and scrape out the inside. Then mash with a fork in a bowl. Add some cut Nettle and some Slippery Elm bark powder. It will be a great consistency for spreading on the offending hemorrhoid. Also, I have rolled this mixture into small cylinder shapes (shaped like your small finger - only smaller). Freeze until firm. Then when a hemorrhoid pops up, get your salve out of the freezer and apply. Cool and comforting. Swelling goes down in about 20 minutes.

Thank you for your great products and fast service. We really like the Dr. Cinnamon and Spiced Chia Tea. They smell wonderful as well as tasting good. I will be ordering more from you.

Did You Know?

After childbirth, a mama's body is gearing up for breastfeeding. It also begins a cleansing process as chemicals, hormones, and nutrients are all adjusting to proper levels as before the pregnancy. The liver, kidneys, colon, etc. are all very involved in this cleansing. Herbs that aid in this process are known as liver cleansers and as blood purifiers. Amazingly enough, many of the liver cleansers and blood purifiers also promote milk production. Some of these herbs are: Fennel, Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Dandelion. Most of us may not see the relation between breastfeeding and cleansing. However, God provided the herbs that aid the new mother to get both jobs done. The Mama's Milk Tea recipe was contributed by one of our readers, and includes herbs for after birth.
