Using Liquid Herbs, or Tinctures, Topically

The poultice remedy used to draw out infection and speed healing has been around for a long time. And, it is just as effective today as it has always been. A poultice can increase blood flow, relaxes tense muscles, sooth inflamed tissues, and draw toxins from an infected area.

Our skin is the first line of defense against disease because it has the ability to absorb. When you apply an herbal poultice to the affected area, the skin absorbs the medicinal benefits of the substance almost immediately. A poultice, however can be fairly labor intensive to prepare with dried herbs. By using a liquid tincture herb extract, you can act quicker to remedy an ailment by simply applying the liquid tincture to the affected area.

Poultices can be used for:

Joint Pain
Fibrocystic disease
Enlarged Neck Glands
Leg Ulcers
Ulcerated Eyelids
Embedded Particles

Preparing a liquid tincture herb poultice
Making a poultice is fairly straightforward. After mixing the appropriate herbal ingredients, you can pour the mixture onto a cotton ball and hold the moist cotton ball against the infected area. A bandage can be used to secure the herbs or cotton ball in place. Poultices should be changed frequently, particularly a poultice for infection, to keep the wound clean.

Treatment duration
Herbal poultices should be kept in place for 1 to 24 hours, or as needed. During this period, you may experience a throbbing pain as the poultice draws out infection and neutralizes toxins. When the pain subsides, you will know that the poultice has accomplished its task and should be removed. Apply fresh poultices as needed until the desired level of healing has been reached.
