HERBS TO TAKE WITH YOU TO COLLEGE

AN HERBAL FIRST AID KIT FOR THE COLLEGE STUDENT!
A SIMPLE OVERVIEW

Herbal Tinctures
1 dropper full=25 drops
Always take in a small glass of water, not directly under the tongue!


All these herbs are safe and easy to use. They may well come in very handy. I'd know I'd want them with me if I were going away from home.


For Infections:
Echinacea Root
Dose, take 1/2 your body weight in drops, several times a day. Lessen the frequency as the infection symptoms abate but the dose always stays the same, taper down the frequency but don't stop all at once; this can be taken for a day or two after you feel all better to prevent relapse.
Note: Use only when you are sick, not as a preventative.
Can be used with viral infections such as the flu as well.

For viral infections, including the common cold, flu, herpes, stress, aches and pains, esp. nerve pain, seasonal depression:
St. John's Wort (made from fresh flowering tops)
Dose 2-3 (or more) droppers full several times a day as needed.
Useful as a preventative if you think you've been exposed to a virus; this herb can be used with Echinacea and Elecampane during the flu for example.

For lung infections/congestion/breathing difficulties caused by infections:
Elecampane Root
Dose, approximately 25 drops as needed only, not for prevention, stop when you feel relief.

For nervousness, heartache (both literal and figurative), cramps:
Motherwort
Dose, roughly 10-to-25 drops, several times a day as needed.
