Headaches and Backaches Herbal Syrup
Mix together 1 tablespoon each of dried yarrow, boneset, and skullcap. Add the mixture to 2 cups of water and simmer 30 minutes, covered. Strain and add 1 tablespoon of the liquid to 1 cup of hot water. Add 1 teaspoon of flavored psyllium. Sweeten with 1 tablespoon of dark corn syrup if desired.
Yarrow is used in this recipe because it is a wonderful tonic for the whole body. The herb grows in all of the northern temperate countries and in any type of soil. The whole plant is covered with grayish silky hairs and the leaves have many divisions, thus many different uses. The root system's branching tendency suggests that it has blood-cleansing properties. It has many blood-fortifying minerals, such as iron, calcium, sulfur and potassium. It also has pain-killing properties, which is another reason we use it in this recipe.
Boneset is generally used with other laxative herbs. It is a wonderful tonic, as it has a cleansing effect on all the organs. It is also a muscle relaxant and can be used in treating muscular rheumatism. It has been considered a near cure-all for many centuries.
Skullcap's signature is the bell-shaped lid of the calyx. The calyx is a cap or helmet-shaped protuberance; it looks like a little dish for the head. It is a superior nervine and tonic. It is a good relaxant and is useful for sleeplessness, headaches, and all nervous disorders.
Psyllium's signature is the amount of mucilage in the seeds. It is used extensively in laxative preparations. It helps to clean the intestinal tract and helps with lower back pain that is related to constipation or bowel problems.
