Poultices are a wonderful way to ease pain and tension in the body.
They are easy to prepare and make and well worth the effort.
The Herbs suitable for poultice – my favorite is lavender, simply go out to your plant cut of a nice long stalk with lots of green on it, it doesn’t matter if it’s flowering or not. It doesn’t matter if it’s dry or fresh.
Other Herbs suitable for poultices and there are many,
Nutritive – Relaxing
Colds & Pain – Nutritive & Bruising

Antibiotic – Nutritive & Cleanser
Skin Conditions – Cleanser
Detoxification – Heals Tissue
CAUTION EXTERNAL USE ONLY
Sedative & Healing
Damaged Blood Vessels
Stimulates the Mind –
Nervine & Nutritive
Colds – Chest Herb & Pain
TO NAME A FEW
IT IS BETTER TO HAVE A COMBINATION OF ABOUT 4-6 DIFFERENT HERBS
AS YOU LEARN TO USE HERBS USE THE HERBS SAFELY
NEVER TAKE ANY HERB INTERNALLY UNLESS YOU ARE SURE
IT IS SAFE TO TAKE OR USE AND MAKE SURE IT IS UN-POLLUTED.
DIRECTIONS – Take a good two handfuls or more of Herb, put in a pot, just cover with water, bring to boil, with tongs put in a tea-towel or pillowcase, apply to painful area as hot as possible without burning the skin, sit, relax, sip water, visualize the area healing and being healthy. Your Body will only respond in a healing way.
YOU MAY RE-USE THE HERB MATTER FOR 24 HOURS OR MORE
I OFTEN JUST ADD MORE FRESH HERB TO MY POULTICE AND RE-HEAT AND IT’S VERY NICE.
helping you be the best you can be
