"This tincture is like the one I used to purchase from my naturepath when we lived back east. It helps my children who have severe asthma quickly and effectively. It is a 'must have' for those suffering with breathing issues like asthma for use now and to keep in storage for a rainy day." - Cherry from Idaho
This herbal packet comes with 1/2-2/3 cup of dried herb and we recommend to make a tincture from it. Or you can buy the ready made tincture for immediate use!
Ingredients & Properties
LOBELIA – One of our Favorites! Famous for respiratory issues and has long history to that end. Anti-spasmodic, expectorant, anti-asthmatic, anti-inflammatory, used to aid convulsive issues.
“Gee-Wiz” Collection: Lobelia is also an emetic herb, which means that it will cause vomiting in high doses. One of our Mamas has used it extensively for asthma and peanut allergies in a child and has never had him throw up as a result of taking it. However, in the writings of Dr. John Christopher and Samuel Thomson, there are many stories of times when they employed this herb when vomiting did occur and it was actually a helpful step in aiding the person to not only breath again, but to completely clearing up the original condition altogether. We recommend addition reading on this if it is interesting to you.
SKULLCAP – When a person cannot breathe, they are likely to panic, which constricts their airways more.
Skullcap is a nervine, which will help to calm the person from panic and anxiety. It is also antispasmodic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, expectorant. This is also an ancient herb that has been used in Chinese Medicine for over 2,000 years.
