How to make a quick blitz Flu Buster tincture of Echinacea and Thyme

Immune system boosting isobutlyamides and other alkylamides popularly known as RxA Factors are found in the roots and mature ripe seed of Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea purpurea – so now is the perfect time for a healthy harvest to make some tinctures and other wellness formulae.

A little known fact is that Echinacea supports the tissues of the throat and sinuses and protects from airborne stressors – including pollution and winter virals.

So here’s one way to avail of all that

Echinacea and Thyme Flu Buster (a quick blitz tincture)

Ingredients
• ½ cup echinacea root
• ½ cup thyme leaves
• 500ml vodka or brandy

Method
Blitz all the ingredients in a blender – as fine as possible – pour into a jar, cover and place in a sunny window, to be shaken daily for a week. You can dip in then, but preferably let it sit for a second week and then strain away the solids and bottle up.

Dosage and duration 10–25 drops of the tincture, three times daily for five days, with a short break of two days before the second round. Do that each round and it makes it more effective – continuous uninterrupted use and the effect begins to decrease as the body adapts to its presence in the system but short gaps keep its intensity up.
