Episode Summary

There are so many echinacea benefits! And yes, while echinacea tincture is an excellent herb for the immune system, that’s just *one* of echinacea’s many gifts! In this episode, you’ll learn the best ways to work with Echinacea, including my favorite method (which is totally underrated). And I’ll show you how to make a *potent* echinacea tincture!

After listening in, you’ll know:

► Safety considerations - what you have to know before working with this plant. 

► Why it’s so important to either grow this plant yourself or only buy from cultivated sources

► The most important considerations when deciding which echinacea species to work with medicinally

► How to strengthen your immune system

► How often and in what quantity to take echinacea tincture for the best results when treating an acute infection

Echinacea is a powerful plant that deserves more than simply being the “cold and flu herb”. It’s an immunomodulator, amazing for clearing bacterial infections, and can even address venomous bites.
