Chamomile tincture



Preparation:

Pour the herbs into a screw-top jar, leaving about half of the space in the jar. Then pour Doppelkorn over the herbs until they are well coated. Seal the jar. Let the tincture steep in a warm place for two to six weeks. Little by little the tincture takes on more and more color. After the waiting period, the tincture is filtered off. A coffee filter is suitable for this. Place the coffee filter over a second glass and pour the tincture through the coffee filter. The finished tincture drips into the second glass. The tincture is then filled into a dark bottle. Close the brown glass bottle. Label the bottle with contents and date. Stored in a dark, cool place, a tincture will last for at least a year.


Application:

Internal

Unless otherwise prescribed by a doctor, pharmacist or alternative practitioner:

  • Take 10 to 50 drops 2 to 3 times daily

External

  • As a compress

  • Diluted as a partial bath

  • Diluted for washing

  • Dab pure

  • In creams


Note! Never put chamomile in your eyes!!!!

The fine hairs of chamomile flowers are very irritating to the eyes. Therefore it should never be used for eye infections. Also not strained well because the fine hairs penetrate normal sieves.
