Kloss's LinimentI go through a lot of this liniment that I learned how to make from Rosemary Gladstar's book Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health. According to Rosemary, This is a very old, very strong recipe, and it's one of the finest disinfectant remedies you'll ever have on hand. First concocted by that famous old herbalist Dr. Jethro Kloss, this liniment is useful for reducing inflammation of the muscles, cleansing wounds, and soothing insect bites. I am going to show you how to make this recipe using herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs.
|Get all the powdered herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs|
1 ounce echinacea powder
1/4 ounce organically grown goldenseal powder
3/4 ounce Oregon grape root powder
1 ounce myrrh powder
1/4 ounce cayenne powder
1 pint rubbing alcohol
The original recipe calls for 1 ounce of goldenseal powder, but you should be aware that goldenseal is in serious danger due to overharvesting. Wild goldenseal is now so rare that the herb is listed in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. Goldenseal is one of the most overharvested herbs. More than 60 million goldenseal plants are picked each year without being replaced. This is why I choose to only add in 1/4 ounce of goldenseal and add in 3/4 ounce of Oregon grape root which is another berberine-containing plant and is a useful and viable alternative to goldenseal.
Add all the powdered herbs into a glass jar and cover with 1 pint of rubbing alcohol. Stir well to moisten the herbs with alcohol and remove any air bubbles. Since this recipe uses rubbing alcohol, you will need to clearly label this for EXTERNAL USE ONLY. Cover the jar with a tight fitting lid and let it sit for 4 weeks (shake it daily). After 4 weeks, strain and rebottle.
