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.

Hello,
Just wanted to thank you for the great website! I recently received my order from you. It came very quickly! I was pleasantly surprised by the smell of the fresh lavender. The package was sitting on my counter unopened and we
could still smell it! I can't wait to use them and I will definitely be ordering more from you.

I also wanted to thank you for the information you have about garlic. My son started getting a cough with chest congestion. I began giving him a crushed clove mixed into lemon juice and honey 3 times a day. In two days he was better! He has gotten it before and it seems to linger for weeks! I also started feeling the flu coming on not to long ago, I did the same thing and in two days my aches, fever, and sore throat were gone! Thank you so much for sharing that info with us.


Did You Know?

Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.
