|Pain Relief Compound - This is a tincture or liquid extract of four herbs: Jamaican Dogwood Piscidia erythrina , The fresh flower top of St. John's Wort Hypericum perforatum , The leaf and flower of Meadowsweet Filipendula ulmaria , and Willow Bark Salix lucida . |
The analgesic (pain relieving) action that comes from this compound is from the glycoside Salicin which is chemically similar to that of aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid; however in this case Salicin is much safer and less damaging to the Liver and other organs. Salicin also produces the same antipyretic (fever reducing) action that aspirin and that of other pain relievers.
This remedy can treat many kinds of pain most commonly are pains resulted from physical injury, headache, toothache, muscular pain, sciatica, spinal and back pain, cramping, spasms etc.
To make this liquid extract take about 1/4 oz. of each herb and place in a 16. oz jar, cover the herbs with 100 or 80 proof vodka, once the herbs are covered replace the lid and tighten securely. Shake the jar for a minute or two, then open the lid and top the jar off with more vodka until you reach the rim of the jar. Replace lid once more and let sit for four to six weeks, the longer the better; remembering to shake the jar several times throughout each day. Once done filter the liquid extract through coffee filters or a muslin cloth into a clean jar or replace in the same jar once rinsed out. Alternatively you can use apple cider vinegar as the liquid solvent; or you can use vegetable glycerin noting to dilute the glycerin with water half and half before mixing it with the herbs.
For adult dosages it is recommended to take between 30-40 drops 2-5 times per day. For children divide the child's weight in pounds by 150 and adjust the dosage accordingly. For example if a child's weight is 50 pounds 50/150 making the dosage 1/3 of an adult dosage. In this case for this remedy that would make a 60 pound child's dosage about 10-15 drops up to three times daily.
This compound is relatively safe if taken as recommended and does not exceed maximum dosage for more than ten days. Pain can be an indication of a serious or threatening medical condition, if the pain persists seek proper medical attention as soon as possible.
Many Blessings and Light,
