Tincture for rheumatism
100 g (~3.5 oz) of crushed Juniper berries
5 dl (~16.9 fl oz) of 70 % alcohol
Leave for 2 weeks, stir form time to time. Strain and filter. Rub it in.
Goat Willow decoction for pain
Take 20 g (~0.7 oz) dried Goat Willow bark or 40 g (~1.4 oz) fresh and let it boil gently in 3.4 l (~115 fl oz) of water for 30 minutes. I.e. until it's down to 1.2 l (~40.6 fl oz). Drink half a liter, spread over 3-4 doses every day. If kept in the refrigerator, the decoction keeps for 2 to 3 days.
Colt's Foot tea
The leaves of the Colt's Foot is a powerful analgesic agent. Make tea on 2 dl (~6.8 fl oz) of water and 2 tbsp of dried leaves. Drink it as hot as possible. The pain's gone before you've finished the cup. Do not use frequently due to the alkaloids.
