I’ve heard great things about this stunning wild herb! I have a ton of it growing in my backyard so I decided to do some research to educate myself on it. I am so glad that I did! With the knowledge I obtained, I now have some free medicine to put to use for a whole array of ailments!
If you decide to forage for this plant, I would choose a cold day to do it. This year it appeared that wasps and yellow jackets were especially fond of the pretty yellow flower clusters! 🐝But if you go out on a cold day you shouldn’t have to worry about them… too much anyway.
Below is an extensive list from Natural Remedies & cures of all the issues that Goldenrod is said to help…
High Blood Pressure
Ulcers in the Mouth, Throat and Private Parts
Inflammatory diseases of the urinary tract
That’s a pretty long list right? So I came across a Goldenrod tonic recipe from group recipes and I am so excited to try it out!
This tonic is used for Urinary Tract Infections, kidney stones, sore throats, nausea, diarrhea, cramps, hiccups and lowering blood pressure.
It’s also super simple to make with only 2 ingredients, Goldenrod & Apple Cider Vinegar.
I hope you enjoy making this healthful home remedy as much as I did
What you will need:
*Goldenrod flowers & leaves
*Apple Cider Vinegar
* Glass jar
Once your goldenrod has been washed and dried for a week to two, remove the flowering tops and place in a jar. Fill it completely full.
Next, add in the Apple Cider Vinegar until it is covering the Goldenrod. If your herb floats up just as mine did, use a spoon gently to push it under the vinegar.
Cover with a plastic lid and put away for 4-6 weeks before you begin to use your homemade medicine.
