Ancient Medicine

All ancient cultures had natural healing practices that consisted entirely of organic ingredients and ancient wisdom. Without a multitude of over-hyped, under-tested pharmaceutical drugs at their disposal, early cultures relied on the knowledge passed down through generations to support their wellbeing and heal them in times of illness. Today, we still believe in the healing power of traditional herbs.

Different types of herbal cure

Herbal teas

Hot water extracts made from herbs or boiling tougher parts of plants for a longer period of time.

  • Chamomile
  • Mint
  • Green Tea
  • Black Tea
  • Ginger
  • Cinnamon
  • Echinacea

Herbal tinctures

A tincture is made by soaking a plant, or parts of a plant, in alcohol. Herbal constituents in tincture-form are more readily absorbed by the body and have a high degree of bio-availability. Common Herbs for Tincturing include:

  • Echinacea Root
  • Chamomile
  • Feverfew
  • Lemon Balm
  • Red Raspberry Leaf
  • Nettle
  • Chaga Mushroom


Tablets are made from dried, powdered. This is a convenient way to carry herbs, and to take herbs that are unpleasant tasting or smelling.

Fluid extracts

Fluid extracts are stronger than herbal tinctures, are thicker than a liquid, and can be made with alcohol or glycerin. Various types of extracts are available such as;

  • Licorice
  • Hawthorne
  • Shepherd's Purse
  • Corn Silk
  • Hops
  • Grindelia
  • Saw Palmetto
  • Wild Cherry
  • Sweet Clover
  • Buckthorn
  • Cascara Sagrada


This is an excellent way of getting vitamins and minerals from the plant; but the juice must be taken within a short time after being prepared, since the vitamin content declines rapidly and fermentation sets in.

  • Pomegranate
  • Carrot
  • Lime

Herbal poultices

Poultices are used externally to treat affected areas. They are generally prepared fresh for each use by crushing the medicinal parts of the plants to a pulpy mass. If dried herbs are used, they are generally mixed in a substance such as water or vegetable fat before it is applied to the skin. Some examples are;

  • Plantain (leaves)
  • Chickweed (leaves and stems)
  • Calendula (flower petals)
  • Dandelion (leaves)
  • Burdock (root)
  • Mustard

Herbal ointments

An ointment, or salve, is a semi-solid preparation made to be applied to the skin. Depending on the purpose and its method of preparation, the texture can vary from very greasy to a thick paste. The simplest ointments use beeswax, olive oil or vegetable oil as a base. There are several great herbs out there whose healing properties can be concentrated in a salve that include;

  • Calendula
  • Comfrey
  • Arnica

The combination of calendula and comfrey is a wonderful ointment for irritated skin

Essential oils

Essential oils are extractions of volatile liquid plant materials and other aromatic compounds from plants. Most people are familiar with essential oils such as lavender, for relaxation, and eucalyptus, for colds or coughs. They are generally only used externally and diluted in water, ointments, baths or oils.

  • Lemon Oil
  • Cinnamon oil
  • Lemongrass oil
  • Clary sage
  • Tea tree oil
  • Lavender oil
  • Eucalyptus
  • Rosemary oil
  • Sweet orange oil
  • Peppermint oil
