Ultra CCF Tincture Blend, It’s the Bomb!!!

Late last week I awoke to an email from my college aged son, “Mom, I’m so sick!  I need the recipe for a hot toddy.”  “No,” I wrote back, “You need a tincture.” I drove to the post office and they were so good to help me pack it and get it there FAST.  It was there within 36 . . .  and we are a three days drive away from him.

He took four doses in the next 20 hours and when I talked with him he sounded so much better.  In fact, he sounded well!  He had told me he had a congestion headache for days and now it was gone.  He thought he was going to have to go to the doctor.  All the mucus . . . gone.  He was better!  He was back to his old self.  So, for cough, colds or flu . . . this incredible tincture blend is for you!!!

Keep this in your cupboard and save yourself a visit to the doctor.  Say no to your regular prescription and take the Ultra CCF Tincture Blend.  You will be so glad you did.

A Cold, the Flu and a Hot Cup of Tea

Several years ago I picked up an herbal healing book (okay, it was more like nearly two decades ago), in it I found this amazing recipe for helping colds and flu.  I have long since packed the book away, but the recipe was written down faithfully in my personal recipe book for safe keeping.  One night I was telling my mother-in-law about this amazing drink and she said, “That sounds like a hot toddy.”  Well, we don’t drink so I still don’t know what a hot toddy is, but I do know that it is my go to “medicine” when I start to feel a cold or the flu coming on.

How to Brew a Cup of Healing TeaMy husband likes to tease me about being an alcoholic when I start to brew a cup.  I just remind him how much alcohol is in his Nyquil and he stops the teasing.  😉  About ten years ago I read about a man who swore by Cayenne Pepper to “cure what ails you.”  So, during an especially grueling cold I added a titch of Cayenne Pepper and it did the trick.  All the congestion was cleared up so nicely (just be sure to have a few tissues around while drinking tea with Cayenne Pepper).  This is now my secret ingredient to my wintertime ills.  It is such an easy tea to brew I always keep the ingredients on hand and need it so rarely they last for quite a while.

A Tea to Cure What Ails You

Brew a cup of herbal tea to cure what ails you 2 c. water, Small stick of Cinnamon, and a few whole Cloves (5-6). Bring this to a low boil and simmer for about 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and add 2 t. Lemon Juice, 1 1/2 T. Honey or Blackstrap Molasses, and 2 T. good quality Whiskey.  Stir well, cover and let steep 20 minutes. This is where I add a titch of Cayenne Pepper. Just remember, the more you add the more your nose will run. Drink 1/2 cup at a time every 3-4 hours.  This is what the directions say, but I usually find that I drink the 2 cups up and make more, if needed. I have also found that you need to strain the Cinnamon and Cloves out of the brew or it becomes bitter if you don’t drink it right away.
