Salves and Oils
Not only can herbs be taken internally by mouth, they can also be applied to the skin. The skin is our body’s largest organ and what we put on it is absorbed into the body. One way to apply herbs to the skin is with oil based preparations, such as herbal infused oils or salves. Herbal salves are simply herbal infused oils thickened to a spreadable consistency with beeswax. Traditionally herbs have been chosen for herbal oils and salves that extract well into oil and support healthy skin. Many of our herbal oils and salves contain rosemary leaf and/or Vitamin E oil which helps to prevent rancidity of the oil and preserve the goodness of the herbal oil or salve.
Pregnancy - Very few herbs have been proven completely safe for babies in the womb. We do know herbs have powerful actions and may cross through the placenta to the baby, affect hormonal balance or stimulate early labor. It is best to not take many herbs during pregnancy, other than food herbs to support a healthy pregnancy, such as Nettle and Raspberry, unless they are absolutely needed and their use helps to avoid the use of more aggressive treatment. It is always wise to talk to your Doctor, midwife or other health care provider if you want to use herbs while pregnant.
Nursing - Any herbs a nursing mother takes may pass through her breast-milk to the baby. Babies are much more sensitive to herbs than adults. Avoid the use of cleansing or anti-parasite herbs while nursing. Infants metabolize herbs differently than adults, with herbs often having a stronger action or a different action on babies and small children than on adults.
Grain Alcohol and Celiac Disease - Natural Hope Herbals uses alcohol made from corn. Corn does not contain gluten or gliadin but a protein called zein. There is no protein left in pure Grain alcohol.
Milky Oat Seed and Celiac Disease - Oats do contain gluten and tinctures and glycerin extracts made with fresh milky oat probably contain very small amounts of oat gluten. Studies show that most people with celiac disease can eat Oats without any mucosal damage (gut inflammation) or immune activation (not bothered by oat gluten). Natural Hope Herbals grows its own Milky Oat seed or purchases fresh Milky Oat seed from reputable herb farms reducing danger of cross contamination with wheat. Products with Milky Oat are unlikely to cause any problems for people with Celiac disease or other gluten intolerance.
Pollen allergies - People with severe Ragweed allergies may react to Chamomile, Calendula, Echinacea, Feverfew, Blessed Thistle, Elecampane, Spilanthes or Yarrow as these herbs are related to Ragweed. An allergic reaction to these herbs is less likely with a tincture than a capsule or tea.
Warning: Keep all extracts out of the reach of children. Children’s products, and even adult tinctures, recommended doses contain very little alcohol but small children tend to take more than recommended doses if they get a hold of a bottle. Children do not process alcohol as well as adults and adverse reactions can occur at much smaller amounts. Even with low alcohol tinctures 4 oz. contains too much alcohol for a 2 year old to consume at one time.
