Nice topic @MacGuyverMedic Don’t know how I missed it.
Medical adviser? @bob31 I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night so…Go me! Thanks for the tag.
I’m not sure on the higher alcohol content for the liniment although it makes sense in theory since they use high % grain alcohol for tinctures. Just keep in mind that the higher the alcohol content the more drying it’s going to be on the skin. You don’t want to help his pain only to give him dry, itchy skin that can lead to cracking and infection. Just a thought to keep in mind.
As a fibromyalgia suffer I am looking for a topical to help calm my over active nerves so very interested in the results. What a bonus to be able to use the whole plant as medicine.
On your root ball recipe it sounds like you’re infusing the oil then firming it up with the bees wax - Is that correct? What are your measurements? Is it a cup of oil and a cup of water or does it not really matter and what kind of oil do you use? Since it’s a topical are you doing like an avocado oil or coconut oil or sweet almond oil? Sorry I’m very linear so I like the big picture. How much of the cream do you end up with at the end?
My harvest won’t be done until around Christmas but I can’t wait to try this.
Hey @daz49 Wasn’t it you who asked about using stems for tea?
