Coneflowers Coming On...

The Echinacea purpurea are coming into bloom now. Time to start gathering supplies to make a nice supply of tincture to have ready for the coming cold and flu season. Our family would not be without it. I use the flower heads, which have as much, if not more activity than the root. I don't want to destroy my precious plants by harvesting the roots, so I purchase good quality dried root from Mountain Rose Herbs and combine it with my fresh flowers to make a good potent tincture. When it's just the right time, I'll make sure you see it here!
