1 cup dried elderberries
1/4 cup mullein leaf
1/4 dried comfrey (boneset) leaf
1 inch fresh ginger or add crystallized if you can't get fresh
1 T ground cinnamon
peel of 1/2 lemon or 2T dried
Put all dry ingredients in a quart size jar.then, fill jar 1/3 of the way up with honey. This takes a little time because you must let honey screen through dried ingredients. Tip off with 80 proof alcohol of your choice ( I use Brandy). Also can use vinegar although it doesn't work as well . Screw on lid, shake well and shake well every day for 6 weeks without opening.Strain out dried ingredients and put tincture in a nice bottle. Sick? 1teaspoon every. 3 hours. 1 tablespoon for overnight.

Did You Know?
Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
