Not that being sick is EVER fun, but as an herbalist, it gives me a strange thrill to be able to test out my remedies on my own body!
I felt a bit of a sore throat yesterday and took a big quart of echinacea elderberry decoction, which felt nice, but today I'm still sick.
I also used a monarda and myrrh tincture for my throat, and by the end of the day it was dry and scratchy.
Maybe I should have tried the soothing demulcents first? so today its marshmallow, slippery elm and elderflower tea. Ahhhh...sooo soothing!
