Herbal Corner – Relax With Valerian Glycerite
One new thing I want to start doing on this blog is to post Herbal Remedies to help people with their various aches and grumbles.
METAL GAIA IS NOT A SOURCE FOR MEDICAL ADVICE. IF YOU HAVE A SERIOUS ILLNESS DON’T BE A DUMB-ASS, TALK TO YOUR MEDICAL PRACTITIONER. ALSO SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE BEFORE TRYING SUGGESTED HERBS, AS THEY MAY CONFLICT WITH YOUR CURRENT MEDICATIONS/HEALTH ISSUES.
Anyways, now that I’ve shouted that disclaimer at you from across the internet, let me talk about my newest remedy.
VALERIAN GLYCERITE HERBAL TINCTURE: For those of you who do not know what an herbal tincture is, it is a combination of herbs and 40% or 80 proof alcohol. The alcohol helps to make the effects of the herb more potent, however Vinegar Tinctures are also an option for those who don’t consume alcohol. To take a tincture, drop one or two drops of the solution under your tongue for the desired effect to take place.
An herbal tincture of Valerian Glycerite is a combination of Valerian and Glycerin. The combination of these two things helps to promote circulation, they act as a sedative, as well as being good for dealing with anxiety, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, muscle cramps, nervousness, pain, spasms, seizures and stress.
You can also buy Herbal Tinctures at your local herb store, health store, spiritual shop or the internet. However, I would caution you to be careful when purchasing edibles on the internet, to make sure you are purchasing from a reliable source, because you don’t want to consume something that is actually poisonous or toxic. That’s why if I’m purchasing something edible, I usually like to buy it straight from the store.
Anyways, hope this helps. Good Luck!
