Echinacea purpurea leaf & root, Echinacea angustifolia root, Goldenseal root (Hydrastis canadensis), Oregon Grape root (Mahonia aquifolium); grain alcohol 60%, spring water. Strength 1:5.
Works best when started at the first signs of infection (scratchy throat, etc.). Echinacea boosts white cell count to help resist infection; goldenseal contains antibacterial/antiviral properties.
Suggested Use: Shake well. Add 2-4 "squirts" (what comes up in one draw of the dropper - it will not be full; approximately 15 drops per "squirt") to a bit of water and drink or take straight into the mouth, preferably at first sign of symptoms. Repeat every couple of hours until symptoms begin to improve, then stretch dose out to 3-4 times daily as needed.
Precautions: Although I have heard a brilliant refutation of this caution by a renowned herbalist with a degree in pharmacognosy, pregnant women are advised to avoid goldenseal. For pregnant women, I recommend "Nip it in the Bud With Ginger" which contains ginger instead of goldenseal. Use Echinacea with caution if you are allergic to ragweed.
