Ceanothus americanus - Wild Harvested (USA), grain alcohol 60%, spring water. Strength 1:5.
Supports healthy lymphatic funtion; supports healthy respiratory function; expectorant - used for cough, sniffles, salivation and sore throat associated with upper respiratory infections (colds). Used traditionally for skin cancers, lesions, and venereal sores.*
Summary: Red root gargles stop sniffling and salivation associated with colds, flu, bronchitis, and asthma. The herb is also used in teas to stop dribbling of urine caused by urinary tract infection. The roots and root bark of New Jersey tea was used extensively by the North American Indians to treat fevers and problems of the mucous membranes such as catarrh and sore throats. Current day usage of the roots concentrates on their astringent, expectorant and antispasmodic actions and they are employed in the treatment of complaints such as asthma, bronchitis and coughs. As an astringent, it has been used to help shrink tissue. As an expectorant, it has been used to loosen phlegm in the lungs, and to alleviate the discomforts of chronic bronchial issues.
Precautions: Should not be taken by pregnant or nursing women as it may interfere with the absorbtion of iron and other minerals.
Suggested Use: Shake well. Twelve years and older, add 1-4 ml (15-60 drops) to a small amount of water and drink. Use 3-4 times daily as needed. To evaporate alcohol before drinking, add to a cup of heated water (no microwave!) and allow to sit for ten minutes before drinking. If an herb is appropriate for children, herb doses for children under 12 are typically 1/2 the adult dose; adjust by weight accordingly or check with a qualified practitioner.
