Yes! Actually I'm in the process on writing up a large thing about it that I'll be posting here either today for a class. My sister and I suffer from adrenal fatigue and so I've been doing loads of research on herbs that help combat it and restore the body to a natural state of balance. As it takes about 6 to 8 weeks for the tincture to come to potency, I won't be able to test it until then but I will be giving an update when I do after a few weeks of using it.

I'll be back with my post later  Wink

Sorry, I fixed the pattern link on my post.  But here it is again in case: https://www.etsy.com/listing/240668087/dragon-egg-dice-bag-pattern

Since the pattern is not mine, and is being sold by an artist who of course should be paid for her work, I don't want to accidentally 'give away' her pattern by going into too much detail.  Here's an over simplified version of what I did:

Added an additional 2 rows between row 8 and 9, then another additional row between row 24 and 25.

It should make sense if you purchase the pattern and read it over.   (Wow, I just checked, and the seller has raised her price since i first bought it, from $7.50 to $12.50!  Yikes.)

Class: Herbology  (on Love to Do list)
House: Ravenclaw
Link: These are some of the links I checked out, along with books from my college courses for more information. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AYvqkaJPjCOOmsLxw-yDj792rqrQv3qNO-PzD5n5TmqJ3oz_YfVuCN0/
http://www.herbs-info.com/herbs-for-depression.html
http://improvedaging.com/5-natural-herbs-that-increase-libido/
Project name: Various Tinctures
Description: I made three different tinctures and they are all waiting in the cupboard for various periods of time to come to full potency. The three different ones I made were for Depression (I suffer from that), Adrenal Fatigue (I also suffer from that) and Libido (Ill let you make up your mind.
I didnt want to just post a result of my project though. These things affect many men and women and so I wanted to give a little more insight on it. The main one I want to talk about is Adrenal Fatigue. This (https://www.andreanordling.com/blog/what-is-adrenal-fatigue-and-how-do-i-know-if-i-have-it) is a really good article to read and get you started about thinking if this may be something you are suffering from. Guess what some side effects of adrenal fatigue are? Depression and low Libido. Go figure. It is also a major cause of the inability to lose weight and constant exhaustion.

Now on to tinctures. I am NOT a doctor nor do I play one on the internet. I just love learning and have taken a few college courses on herbalism and have since expanded my studies to help improve my own health and that of my family. Please, talk to your doctor!

I am not going to go into detail on what each herb does in each batch as I feel it is fairly self explanatory. The herbs I put in the Adrenal Fatigue tincture help improve symptoms of and counteract adrenal fatigue. The same goes for depression and libido.

Each will be made in a quart sized glass jar with tight fitting lid and 80 proof brandy. You can use vodka but that constricts the blood vessels while the brandy opens them up, therefore getting into your bloodstream faster and more efficiently.

Adrenal Support:
1 quart size glass jar with tight fitting lid
4 tablespoons ashwaganhda
4 tablespoons eleuthero root
2 tablespoons holy basil
2 tablespoons licorice root
enough 80 proof brandy to fill rest of jar

Depression:
1 quart size glass jar with tight fitting lid
2 tablespoons flax seed
2 tablespoons fennel
2 tablespoons valerian root
4 tablespoons lavender
4 tablespoons gingko,
4 tablespoons nettle
4 tablespoons peppermint
4 tablespoons vervain
4 tablespoons St. Johns Wort
enough 80 proof brandy to fill rest of jar
(may also need a second smaller jar to put some of the mix in if woody parts and roots swell too much. Add more brandy to smaller mix.)




Libido:
1 quart size glass jar with tight fitting lid
3 tablespoons powdered or chopped ginseng
3 tablespoons gingko
3 tablespoons holy basil
3 tablespoons ashwagahnda
3 tablespoons damiana
2 tablespoons fennel seed
3 to 5 slices fresh ginger (or substitute with 3 tablespoons powdered ginger.)

All herbs must go in their jar (or more than one if a lot of root and wood expansion occurs) and cover with brandy to the top of the jar. LABEL YOUR LIDS!! Keep in a dark cool place. Shake daily for the first week or so then a few times a week for the next 6 weeks or longer. Strain and put in dropper bottles. For an adult, a dose is 1 to 3 droppers 1 to 3 times a day.

Whew! Ok, I think thats it!
