Deep blood tonic Syrup

This is a syrup I like to suggest to those who appear pale, anemic, deficient and lacking in strength and stamina.  Traditionally this would be a recipe for a woman who has scanty menstruation, dryness, anxiety and deficient type depression.  There is a need for greater invigoration, minerals, nutrients and blood flow.     These herbs are all in whole form, not powdered.

Ingredients:

Shatavari

Dong Quai  1 ounce

Shatavari  1 ounce

Rehmannia  1 ounce

Nettles 1 ounce

Schisandra berries 1 ounce

Ginger  1 tablespoon

Gather ingredients and place in a pot with two quarts of water.  Bring the whole mix to a boil and then simmer for an hour.   Afterwards strain out the herbs and return the warm decoction to the pot.   Add two cups of honey after it has cooled down a bit.  Stir together and then bottle and refrigerate.  You should have about 2 quarts of syrup.  Take 2 tablespoons twice a day.  This should last you about 30 days.
