Catnip

Despite it’s stimulant properties in kitty cats, this well-known herb has relaxing properties in humans. It relieves inflammation, which makes it good for arthritis, and even fevers. Because it is relaxing it also makes an excellent before-bed remedy. So if you’ve got a little one who’s awake with a fever, a few drops of catnip tincture go a long way to getting a good nights sleep.

Feverfew
Feverfew is a proven friend of migraine sufferers. Mild or infrequent migraines Feverfew can completely eradicate.  More severe migraines, or more frequent and you’ll notice a dramatic difference in the severity, duration or frequency. This is a medicinal supplement, rather than a cure. The best medicine is always preventative, and Feverfew falls into that preventative category.

Milk Thistle
Milk Thistle Tincture is for liver support. Mistakenly labeled as a detox agent, that’s not quite true, though this tincture will support your liver during a detox, or during daily life.

Skullcap
Skullcap is a mild sedative. For the person with anxiety or even exhaustion, Skullcap helps ease in a way that keeps you going, or allows you to drift right off to sleep. It’s all about relaxing, with Skullcap, whichever way you need it. It was very popular before the advent of pharmaceutical sedatives. Susun Weed says that Skullcap must be processed in the alcohol as soon as it is plucked, and so that’s what I’ve done here, to guarantee an effective tincture.

One of the few herbs that has been tested by the scientific community. In its tinctured form, St. John’s Wort is proven to help with symptoms of depression, anxiety or mood swings.
